Although we gave you notice the other day, United Front Games has confirmed that the ModNation Racers beta will officially begin on December 18, just in time to have the family play a few rounds on Christmas. Although you’ll want to make the most of it as it ends on January 10, 2010.

As for getting a beta voucher, those who have the LittleBigPlanet Game of the Year Edition are good. Others can register for a chance to win a code on the ModNation Racers website or stay tuned to the PlayStation.Blog for an upcoming giveaway of codes.

Along with this announcement, United Front has released a new video walkthrough showcasing the game’s simple to use, but incredibly powerful character customization.
