In ModNationRacers, Weapons Can Change The Course Of The Race

ModNationRacers is slated for a May 25th release in the US, but before it comes out there’s a few things you should know: first, make sure your weapons are close.

“When making ModNation Racers, we realized the need to advance the kart racing genre to the next level with a more physical driving model, but we also wanted to change how players use weapons,” Nick Letizia, game designer for United Front’s ModNation Racers said in a post on the US PS Blog.

“Nothing feels better than taking an opponent down, but that feeling of euphoria is soon forgotten when you are on the receiving end of an attack. Weapons can change the course of a race — it’s one of the defining characteristics in this genre, but we wanted to reduce the frustration of unskilled randomness. We wanted to give players more options”.

Letizia said you can upgrade your weapons to make them more powerful in ModNationRacers, and also plan out your attacks using three distinct levels. This means when you upgrade you change the properties of the weapon, which in turn gives you a different style of attack.

Exciting stuff.
