This Wednesday, August 4th at 2:00am (Pacific Time), the ModNation Racers Title Update 1.02 goes live improving many of the issues the community has been concerned about. On behalf of UFG, we want to thank everyone for supporting ModNation and being patient as we’ve worked hard to make it the best experience possible. If you didn’t see the patch details on the IGN last Friday, here is a run down:

Update: Title Update 1.02 for ModNation Racers unfortunately introduced an issue that affects online XP Races and XP Series. We’ve identified the cause and are quickly working on a solution to resolve the issue. We intend on updating the ModNation Community on the release of this fix as soon as possible.

Load Time Improvements
While there are still loads, you will see decreases in load times throughout the game.

New “Casual” Difficulty Mode
We’ve added a “casual” difficulty setting in the options screen.

Challenge friends in XP Series
We’ve added the ability to invite your friends to XP Races & Series.

No more “Hot Lap” Cheaters
We fixed a bug that allowed players to cut the track and post unbeatable times in Hot Lap.

Get into Online Races Quicker
Along with improved load times, we’ve removed the online game room from the ModSpot so you can get into the race faster.

Improved Server Stability
We’ve addressed issues to improve intermittent disconnects that players were experiencing.

Three Challenges now more attainable
We wanted to provide you challenges, but didn’t want to sacrifice fun. We found 3 challenges that proved extremely difficult and changed the conditions to complete them. This includes:

  • Devastator takedown on Wild Run
  • Devastator takedown on Modobahn
  • Sideswipe 3 opponents on the cliff side on Fracture

The Tin Bucket Unlocked!
Finally this is an item is unlocked and available to everyone by default.

Collector Card Improvement
Now see all player creations in their entirety.

Improvements to ModNation Racers don’t stop here, we are still constantly listening to the community and are committed to making ModNation Racers one of the most enjoyable experiences you’ll have on your PS3.

We added features to the Community site to make the experience better too, including:

  • StealthReborn--

    @65 Russell, can you fill me in?

  • Got a Drake code the second time! yay! Thanks for doing this

  • NHDrumline17

    more ratchet and clank DLC?

  • I’d like to see a fix so that player 2 on split-screen can log in under their PSN and collect stats, i.e. Resistance 2, LBP,etc. Also, allow split-screen to race XP races also. Looking forward to the update on Wednesday! The wife and I love playing this game together!!!

  • Nader-Abudiix

    one drake please XD

  • Are you posting more codes? Only missing Drake, I managed to get the other DLC from pre-ordering.

  • “No more “Hot Lap” Cheaters”


    What about the people who’ve already cheated? Did the times get reset? Cause you will never beat them if the times didn’t get reset from people cheating prior to this patch.

  • anymore codes i really want kratos

  • gettinmoney662

    Nice, I just got around to playing this even though I pre-ordered it. I don’t know about making those challenges easier but I’m not necessarily complaining either. I think fixing Hot Lap was one of the more important things to do, so good work on that.

    Now hook it up with an Uncharted or GOW DLC code (I got Ratchet and Clank with my pre-order), ;-).

  • @Craazy
    Oh, thank you!
    I didn’t know that! lol

  • @95, why would you redeem 2 of that same DLC??

  • Pbk187HitMan

    nice cnt w8 to get kratos and the rest f the dwnloadable chars. ty so much modracers ;-)

  • @ 103 yes i agree. i always have to fight with my friend or brother on the account use cus we are always trying to get trophies

  • Oh yeah what about making an exclusive PS Plus mod and kart?

  • Orangeninja1092

    i want kratos soooo bad

  • missed again haha

  • Nader-Abudiix

    come on one drake which i wont have time to redeem looool

  • I really hope you have more vouchers… I would love to at least get Drake! I’ve only just seen this post.

  • And meeeeee nathaan!

  • I can’t play any games at the moment cause the Redeem Codes page for my PS3 is open, waiting for some more codes for Ratchet and Clank. I feel like a little kid waiting to open gifts for his birthday.

  • Don’t tell me that’s it I just got here!I don’t have any of these characters.

  • I would love to have the Ratchet and Clank mods, heh…

  • Nader-Abudiix

    @118 me too my redeem page is open ready for something looooooooool

  • Feel like a little doggie waiving my tail to catch a code, LOL

  • NHDrumline17

    more codes please!

  • Come on UFG please hand me a Nathan Drake code

  • i would love to not have to worry about people who already have multiple codes…

  • jedi_webslinger

    any word if these will be available on the psn soon? I got my kratos but my friends wants one.

  • Realoy? Thats all the codes? Well I tried efery one the second it came and nothing! I got screwed because I cant look off my computer and put the code in. I am on my PS3s browser, so that extra time to get to the store screwed me! Thanks a lot UFG, you crushed my dreams of driving as Kratos! =(

  • on a different topic.. i think psn accounts need to be more “valuable” so that it discourages cheating in any games due to fear of ban.

  • @126 they’re in the comment lol

  • 11:11 make a wish

  • Orangeninja1092

    more kratos codes plz

  • @ 130 2:12 here est

  • Nader-Abudiix

    no more codes ? just send me one on PSN AHAHAAHA

  • UFG, Sony, THANK YOU! I love this game but the load times are too much to deal with and the waiting to race has kept me away for the last week or so. Thanks and keep up the weekly dlc, maybe future track/mods/challenge mode pack in the future w/ more trophies?

  • crap can’t even get the times right

  • Orangeninja1092
