From 22nd January 2010, gamers across the world can get an early taste of ModNation Racers in the Public Beta Trial, available on PlayStation®Store from 22nd January 2010.
To ensure Australian gamers don't miss out, we've secured a limited amount of Beta Keys for our PlayStation visitors. If you're one of the lucky testers, you'll be given the opportunity to race on four pre-made tracks. You can also enter the Creation Station and design your very own character, kart and an alpine themed race track, ready to share with other Beta Trial testers.
You'd better get in quick to be able to enjoy the first taste of what's to come in 2010 with ModNation Racers.
ModNation™ Racers is a thoroughly fresh take on classic kart racing that empowers the player to personalise their entire game. Enjoy endless karting fun, where you can shoot, boost and drift your way to the finish line. Create your unique racing experience with the same tools used by the development team. Express yourself by creating your own Mod character, quirky kart and imaginative track, and share your unique racing experience with the rest of the world.
How do you get on the Beta?
Aussie consumers can register for this competition to try and secure one of the beta keys OR download the Beta from PlayStation®Store from Thursday evening, 21st January 2010, however beta keys are limited. The actual beta game trial won't be playable until the 22nd January 2010 (UK time).
When does the fun end?
Sadly, all good things come to an end. The Mods will be melted down, the karts will be dragged to the pit stop and the tracks will be condemned on Valentine's Day, 14th February 2010.
Will I ever be able to look at kart racing games the same again?
Dunno... you tell us! To make ModNation Racers the best kart racing game possible, we want to hear from you. Please take the time to fill in our survey.
