Coming this Wednesday, there will be a pretty major title update for ModNation Racers that focuses on a lot of the concerns the community had about the game as well as many bug fixes and feature updates. The main fix I would say here is the improvements that will be made to the load times which as we all know are horrendously long. There is also the addition of a new “casual” difficulty setting which I assume makes the game a lot easier for those who thought the game was too difficult.
Here is a rundown of what will be included in the patch.
Load Time Improvements
While there are still loads, you will see decreases in load times throughout the game.
New “Casual” Difficulty Mode
We’ve added a “casual” difficulty setting in the options screen.
Challenge friends in XP Series
We’ve added the ability to invite your friends to XP Races & Series.
No more “Hot Lap” Cheaters
We fixed a bug that allowed players to cut the track and post unbeatable times in Hot Lap.
Get into Online Races Quicker
Along with improved load times, we’ve removed the online game room from the ModSpot so you can get into the race faster.
Improved Server Stability
We’ve addressed issues to improve intermittent disconnects that players were experiencing.
Three Challenges now more attainable
We wanted to provide you challenges, but didn’t want to sacrifice fun. We found 3 challenges that proved extremely difficult and changed the conditions to complete them. This includes:
- Devastator takedown on Wild Run
- Devastator takedown on Modobahn
- Sideswipe 3 opponents on the cliff side on Fracture
The Tin Bucket Unlocked!
Finally this is an item is unlocked and available to everyone by default.
Collector Card Improvement
Now see all player creations in their entirety.
Improvements to ModNation Racers don’t stop here, we are still constantly listening to the community and are committed to making ModNation Racers one of the most enjoyable experiences you’ll have on your PS3.
