ModNation Racers details from the latest Qore


The November episode of Qore comes loaded with brand new details and video on United Front Games’ upcoming PlayStation 3 racer, ModNation Racers. Of the new information given, we’ve assembled the most important.

The game features both split-screen and twelve-player online racing as well as a story mode written by professional Hollywood writers.

What makes this game unique is its character, track and kart customization. Customization looks simple, but is very in-depth. Character customization includes the ability to change the color of any asset, see full animation whilst creating the character, and truly even make a character that’ll look just like you.

Track customization is easy as well; United Front created the editor so that truly anybody can use it without confusion. Once a track is created, it can be uploaded online for friends to download, who can then remix your track and reupload it for even more creativity sharing. If you forget where you are when creating the track, you can use an autocomplete feature that will automatically finish the track for you; an autocomplete is also available for area population that automatically throws trees and other items down on the course. There’s also weapons, ramps and more to add to the track. Weather options are also available.

The game’s out 2010. LittleBigPlanet: Game of the Year Edition buyers are ensured access to the beta whenever it comes around.
