SCEA's Associate Product Marketing Manager Chuck Lacson has confirmed today on the PlayStation Blog that the much anticipated ModNation Racers: PS3 demo hits PSN on May 18, 2010.
To quote: I'm happy to confirm that on Tuesday, May 18th, the ModNation Racers Demo goes live and you can finally sample the over-the-top kart racing action and deep creation tools the critics have been raving about.
So the question is- "What will you be able to do? Well let me break it down:
Get your Feet Wet in Single Player - Race on one of the in-game tracks against AI in Single Player and test both your driving skills and your weapon management.
Face Off in Multiplayer! - Challenge up to 3 of your friends and race against each other in Offline Split Screen Multiplayer.
Design your Mod and Kart - Hop into the Creation Station to make your own Mod and customize your own Kart. See what you can do with just a fraction of the accessories from the full game!
Make a Full Track and Test Drive it! - Lay down some asphalt and drive your track to life! Sculpt mountains, create lakes, and place props wherever you want. Then take your Track for a spin!
Save your creations and Share them in the Full game! - Keep you creations on your hard drive and enjoy them with the full retail copy of ModNation Racers. Share your creations with friends as well!
We hope you are looking forward to your taste of our next Play, Create and Share experience.
There have been concerns online about long load times in the final game and while even though http://unitedfrontgames.com/ improved load times since the beta, they are looking into further optimizing the game via a post-launch patch!
So there you go! See for yourself next week what ModNation is all about.
