ModNation Racers was a nice surprise when it was revealed, especially given the fact that it’ll fall under Sony’s Play Create Share label alongside LittleBigPlanet and Gravity Crash. Despite some fairly detailed character customisation and that level designer, Sony appeared to be keeping the game simple and to the point. Until now, though, because it’s been revealed that the game will come with a story penned by Hollywood writers – surely something a racing game based on primary colours doesn’t need unless it’s got Lightning McQueen in it.
This ridiculous news, which comes via the latest issue of Qore, is supported by some good news: there’s two player split screen in addition to the twelve player online racing, plenty of character, track and kart customisation and, twelve months down the line, the option to add in water. We kid. Seriously, though – United Front do appear to have nailed the track editor at least, even if it does appear a little simplistic in the way you actually craft the course. Owners of the Game Of The Year edition of LBP will get access to the ModNation Racers beta early next year.
