    ModNation Racers PS3 Update 1.02 Arrives on August 4, 2010

    SCEA San Diego Studios Community Manager Ramone Russell has confirmed today that ModNation Racers PS3 update version 1.02 will arrive on August 4, 2010 and feature many improvements.

    To quote: This Wednesday, August 4th at 2:00am (Pacific Time), the ModNation Racers Title Update 1.02 goes live improving many of the issues the community has been concerned about.

    On behalf of UFG, we want to thank everyone for supporting ModNation and being patient as we've worked hard to make it the best experience possible. If you didn't see the patch details, here is a run down:

    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.

    Big Grin

    I really appreciate this patch and the Create XP boost last week, but I have to say, there seems to be an imbalance between XP earned in creating and in racing.

    For example, one download of a creation (100 xp) is now equivalant to the amount you earn by winning two XP races (2 x 50 = 100)! I understand the Create XP trophy had to be addressed, but what about the people who got this game to race rather than create? Itíll still take hundreds of hours of grinding to earn enough XP through mostly racing to reach level 30.

    Very Excited about this. Took some time off from the game to catch up on backlog titles but this will definately pull me back into the MNR Circuit. Canít wait.
