Hello everyone!

Ramone Russell here, Community Manager for ModNation Racers and avid kart racer.

One of my Mods I call 5-0

Everyone at United Front Games and SCEA are extremely exited to finally put the game in your hands. I’m here to give everyone a quick peek into some of the features and content available in the ModNation Racers PS3 public beta.

In short we are giving you the ability to race, share, download, remix, rate, and most importantly create. Everyone with a beta code will have our state of the art creation tools at your finger tips. We’re absolutely stoked to see the Tracks, Mods, and Karts the beta community will create.

The public beta will include three tracks from the full game Farm Frenzy, Market Run and Sandstorm. There are a couple of race options included in the beta as well. In addition to playing online with up to 12 players, you can compete for the best lap times in Time Trial.

ModNation Racers Beta -Farm Frenzy

It’s home on the firing range here on Farm Frenzy. Drift and shortcut your way through these meadows, but look out for the sheep! Especially if you dare to take the jump off the barn roof.

ModNation Racers Beta - Market Run ModNation Racers Beta - Sand Storm

The desert oasis in Market Run (left) looks calm from the outside, but the action inside is anything but. Crash through the crowded alleys to max out your weapons and pull out 720-spins on the big wall jump to build up your boost. In Sand Storm (right) Deep in the heart of the desert, this off-road race winds through rolling dunes and treacherous cliffs. Try not to break a sweat as you explore the many paths through the buried ruins.


The next area of the game included in the beta I would like to talk about is the ModSpot. What’s the ModSpot you ask? It’s the central hub area in ModNation Racers you load into once you download the beta. Everything takes place in the ModSpot. It’s where you can meet up with your friends or make some new ones. You can also view, rate, and download the top rated Mods, Karts, and Tracks as well. Lastly it’s where you launch into the Creation Station where you can create your own Mods, Karts and Tracks.

Remember, in North America the ModNation Racers Public Beta will run from today, December 18, through January 10 for everyone who was lucky enough to procure a beta voucher. If you already have a voucher (Did you pick up LittleBigPlanet Game of the Year Edition?), fire up your PS3 and redeem your code on the PlayStation Store to get in on the action. If you don’t have one, you’re in luck – the PlayStation.Blog is giving away a few hundred today! Keep your eyes peeled to the PlayStation Twitter feed and Facebook Page today for details (If you’re unlucky today, even more Beta vouchers will be given away on Monday!).

My favorite mod so far what or who will you create?

I got my beta code, installed it, played it. And i did almost everything in it. Now i can’t go online. Like when im joing a online race, it says Cannot connect to UFC servers or something like that. But i can go to the menu in the modspot and click connect to online and it works. But when i try to race, i get in and that messege comes up, it takes me back to modspot and i gotta connect again. And NOW it wont even let me connect anymore. All my other online games work fine though. Is this a server issue?

LilBig47 said:

December 18th, 12:35 pm

Fuggity said:

December 18th, 12:43 pm

XCEagle said:

dbieon12 said:

December 18th, 12:49 pm

Trying to install MediaGo, not even sure if it will work, or if there are codes left, but it’s taking forever!

supercoolmanchu said:

December 18th, 12:56 pm

Haven’t received a beta key yet, but I keep my hopes up :P

jqtaxpayer said:

December 18th, 12:57 pm

Ach, I wish they didn’t make these things a race… I really look forward to playing this, but I guess I can wait. Life is full of enough disappointments without the “Did I get into the Beta? No? Dang… How about now?” factor thrown in.

Punkt77 said:

December 18th, 12:59 pm

I wanna haz code plz

CIAFlux said:

December 18th, 12:59 pm

So im pulling the sticker off my voucher I got with LBP and guess what the sticker pulls off the last 4 characters.
I try to salvage it but one of the characters is 90% destoryed (but looks like a 4) and another is about 25% destoryed and looks like an 5 or S and the code returns “The PlayStation®Network Card code is invalid. Check that you have entered the code correctly.”

So either the code never worked or the voucher destroyed my code.

And who thought putting a sticker over the code was a good idea why not use scratch off like on instant lotto tickets?

Please Fix online ASAP – I cannot connect at all – sometimes the connecting screen will go for a bit than just stop again – Its weird tho because when it does that – the top mods, tracks ect updates <— PLZ PLZ FIX !!!

I logged in but I don’t see any BETA link under my name. I only see My Profile and Logout links on the http://www.playstation.com page and a Logout link on the Playstation Blog page.

All I want to know is if the final game will have split-screen????
Please, Please, PLEASE allow split-screen even if the framerate drops a tad….

zeth07 said:

December 18th, 1:06 pm

I hope they do give out more codes.

V0L1M1N4L said:

December 18th, 1:12 pm

Awesome. I got my code with GOTY LBP. I’ve created my mod and kart. I understand that United Front Games and working out the online issues. No biggie though. You kids have to remember it’s a beta.

V0L1M1N4L said:

December 18th, 1:14 pm

@Airwalkinman17 The game does have split screen it’s in the main game hub.

that_sterlin_kid said:

December 18th, 1:17 pm

Though I didn’t get a beta I still got the theme, which is alright. Just makes my anticipation for this game even higher! Been following since E3 ’09 and can’t wait to play so no hard feelings. Thanks for the theme PSN Dudes :D

xeno3d said:

December 18th, 1:18 pm

Hey everyone.

I ended up with two beta codes. One with my LBP GOTY purchase and another that I got this morning in an email from Qore.

So, I have an extra that I am willing to give out for christmas.

First one to send me ( xeno3d ) a msg on psn can have it. :)

I was happy to wake up this morning to see the beta code in my email today. And so far i’m loving the game. Love the customization, the depth to creating characters and karts, music, and just everything about the game. I am defiantly getting this first day of release.

BETA FEEDBACK: The only thing i have to say that i would change is with the creating of characters and carts, i think when you pass over which item you want to place on your character or kart, say like a nose or engine, that instead of seeing of how it looks on your character by applying it, have it that when you passover the item , it is displayed on your character. Then if you like it you could just hit x to apply it and customize it. Also some issues with the track creation menus, but i’ll post that in the forums.
But great work so far United Front. Even though its in beta phase you guys have created a really cool game and i can’t wait to see what you guys do with True Crime.

Axonn said:

December 18th, 1:28 pm

I’m pretty impressed with this title. But very frustrating think is always (read: ALL THE TIME) frame rate dropping, even on menu O_o I can’t imagine how developer could ignore it… :/

Skv007 said:

December 18th, 1:28 pm

Nice!
Thanks for the 25 beta codes. Keep those coming! I hope more n more people get to test this game out.
Got a beta code last night via email.
The servers seems to be unstable (getting pushed to offline mode every few minutes).
So i gave it a break, will be back tomorrow to get in on the action!

Thanks.
