ModNation Patch Promises Quicker Loading

And invite your friends.

ModNation Racers is a great game, but for everyone that’s just a little bit bored gazing upon the wonderfully named Jimmy Mango on the game’s loading screens (look out for him) can rejoice now, there’s a patch coming next week that’s going to solve all your problems.

According to IGN, the first fix will be to the load times, which, according to Sony, will be reduced by up to 50%.  But that’s not all, with United Front Games acknowledging that the “computerized bastards” (IGN’s words) were a little tough, and are introducing a casual difficulty level.

What else?  How about the ability to invite friends into XP?  Done.  Removal of the completely pointless ‘online room’ that sits inbetween races?  Done.  Network fixes to reduce disconnections?  Done.  Tweaks to a few of the tougher challenges?  Done.

Sounds like one hell of a patch, doesn’t it?

Thanks, ProjectJay.

    This news just blowed my face off! I new it would reduce times and introduce a new difficulty, but up to 50% is much more than I even dared to hope for.

      They are getting rid of the region lock but are not going to do it until they are sure online wont suffer.

    The load times have put me off playing this awesome game. Hopefully I’ll get back into it after this.

        I’ve wanted to get it for a while now but the load times and online have been putting me off, hopefully though, United Front Games will continue to enhance the game as much as possible.

        if anyone’s looking to pick modnation up for cheap i just ordered it new from play for £24.99 from a trusted PlayTrade seller which is a pretty decent deal if you ask me.

        Wow £18 is a good deal
        May work out to be a hassle getting it at £18 now though.. most of them look like they’re going for a little more now

        I might actually have a look at what ebay have to offer now game wise and hopefully pick myself up a bargain ;)
