DLC Showcase

With all the recent DLC hitting PSN, we thought we would show you some of the great tracks we have found in our searches. Please let us know if you find any recent track gems like these using any new DLC by visiting our forum HERE.

Recent DLC: Medieval Mini-Theme
Squires rise up, join this “scribe” and declare this the 25th morn of July in the year our ModNation 2011 the beginning of thy crusade to bring ModNation a really freaking cool olde, olde, olde school Medieval track to the ModKingdom!

medival

Medieval Mini-Theme is available in the PlayStation Store now for only $6.99. Cometh on, the price of your very own drawbridge is worth every half-penny, mark and florin you can rustle up from between your throne’s seat cushions! check here for more details.

Special Limited-Edition DLC: Stowaway Mod & Kart
His wetsuit leads us to believe he snuck out of the chilly UFG offices in Canada and made the long, cold, watery voyage down to San Diego. This must be the case as NO self-respecting SoCal resident would be caught dead in a full wetsuit in the middle of the summer, especially one that matches their pigmentation!

*The Special Limited Edition Stowaway Mod & Kart will not be available for sale and will only be given away in small numbers during upcoming ModNation community events. Check this blog, our Facebook page and the MNR forums for ways to stow him away into YOUR collection!

Creations of The Week:

Track of The Week:
Wu Xing Water Shrine by ArgorokX – One of the best tracks I have played in quite a while. So much thought OBVIOUSLY went into the design of this track and it shows. Driving over the river (and through the falls)? Did you just have me jump into someone’s landscaped backyard swimming pool? Are you kidding me? WOW! ArgorokX you made my day(s)!

  • Oh goodie: A Modnation equivalent of LBP’s exclusive crowns. well, I look forward to possibly getting my hands on the Stowaway mod/kart: Both look very awesome!

    Another great update this week! Always a highlight to my otherwise mundane Mondays…

  • Those tracks look awesome and I’d love that Squid guy. Try out my new Road Hog mod as well, thanks!

  • Any chance of a complete edition ever coming out? I always wanted this game, but there is so much DLC, it would cost to much.

  • wow, i forgot about that song. lol

  • @3 Modnation Racers is only 30 $ brand new

  • Oil stain kart….so thats what its called!

  • Either release a a dlc pack with all released dlcs or the game with all the dlcs and i will happily buy this game again :)

  • I am really impressed with UFG because this game is what, 16 months post launch, and insted of making googles of money on a new release they continue to update weekly and provide fresh content. At the one year mark I traded my copy of MNR in thinking it was over. Stupid me!!!! Going to re-buy it today. It is rare that a studio continues support for this long. Well done.

    Yes, I know there is a vita edition coming up but that’s a different species all together.

    • There is a lot of love and support for this game and it’s players from San Diego Studio and UFG! You guys rock!

  • Will Europe be getting a chance of winning a Stowaway Mod/Kart?

    • We understand a few in Europe are having issues redeeming Stowaway. We are working hard to get them resolved ASAP.

      :)

  • I hope the Vita version is also supported long into it’s life.

  • you guys don’t need the DLC, game has plenty of content without it

  • @ reply to #9

    Oh i know that! ;)

    But good to hear everyone has a chance to get their hands on one, not just the U.S & A.

  • how bout a new dlc mode? like a battle arena like in jak x?

  • Has the release date for the Arctic DLC been announced yet? I’m hoping to make my first foray into track creation be a remake of some old Crash Team Racing levels :).

    • Hi,

      The Arctic DLC had been out a while now. It is available in the PlayStation Store for $9.99!

      You will love it!!!,

      Mark

  • Oh man, I want that Stowaway Pack :P

    upcoming MnR events? when they are going to start?, I believe in August…

    Is good to see that my suggest was taken for the team, now the DLC has a mod and kart according to it :D, that’s cool. Looking forward to that!

  • @14 reply to poodude

    Man.. Arctic has been out for several weeks… even months

  • Is there going to be add-os like from Disney or other video game like FF7 or Bioshock?
    Also, check out my area 51 track (area 51.2).

  • Thanks for track of the week :D

  • I sure hope I have some money during a community event. Geeze, I already have some plans for that cart body. Any PS+ love perhap? ;)

  • WOOT, got a track on hot lap, thanks mark, what did you think about my other tracks can i submit Cowtastrophe again as i’m going to update it, oh and what happened with the little comments by the side of hot lap, i like those..

    • Great track! I like your others too and hosted a room with Cowtastrophe today and got a very good response!.

  • Whoo hooo!!! I’ve been hoping for the Oil Stain kart since the demo! Stoked to see it. “Finally the ‘Stain’ has come back to MNR”!!!!! Something I’m sure the “people’s kart” would say. :)

    Stowaway has to be the most desired mod and kart for certain at this point… such mystery about how to get it, where to get it, when to get it, and IF one can really get it! Xanax bottles are popping all over the MNR community to calm the anxiety of possibly not being able to get it. ( I sure hope I do, that’s for sure.)

    I’ve been very impressed with the balance of DLC. Keeping the track peeps happy, AND the mod and kart peeps as well. Awesome!

  • “The Stain” is sweeeeet!

    Check blog next week for a chance at Stowaway!

  • THE MAIN REASON THE XBOX 360 AND XBOX LIVE KEEP KICKING SONYS BUTT IN SALES AND POPULARITY?

    THE LACK OF CROSS GAME VOICE CHAT AND A PARTY SYSTEM ON THE PS3!!!!!!

    WHEN WILL SONY STOP IGNORING THE FACTS AND RESCUE THE PS3 FROM AN EARLY DEMISE BY IMPLEMENTING THESE MISSING CRUCIAL COMMUNITY FEATURES?

    IS CROSS GAME VOICE CHAT NOT POSSIBLE ON THE PS3? WHY DON’T YOU COME CLEAN WITH THE COMMUNITY SONY AND ADDRESS THIS GIGANTIC PINK ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM?

  • @23

    Its all Mark Wilsons fault obviously.

    o_0

  • Thanks again for the hot lap spot! :)

  • Hmm… that Stowaway mod and kart look shhhweeeeet! Daddy want.

  • @ 14 Yeah, just look at game add ons under the ModNation Racers icon in the PSN store.

  • Hey Mark, could you check out my new tracks North Pole Bonanza and The Dark Ages [CURED]? Several people say that they are hot-lap worthy.

  • hey mark,can u check out my mods and karts and tracks and tell me a what u think about them

  • hi mark.

    Thank you for posting nice articles every weeks.
    I am a person who expressed sadness that new DLCs aren’t in store in Japan last week.
    Thank you too for replying there.
    Most of Japanese fans, especially track creators, are much disappointed but still looking forward to buying those DLCs.

    I just want to let you know that there are still many MNR fans in Japan and they have been afraid of being abandoned by Japanese company recently.

    I expect we have chance to get Stowaway Mod & Kart as well.
    They are looking very nice.

    Thanks.

  • what special content do u get if u have both ps3 and psp version?

  • Its great that your giving away a kart for good creators and thanking them for making these awesome creations. But will you think about giving away a kart and mod for people that can’t create or just like to race. I know this sounds to much but if you guys can do it would be nice.

    Thanks for keeping up to date on this game and you guys rock

  • Mark if you want to play COWtastrophe online you’ll need to download v1.1 which looks much better, be sure to check out my other epic tracks here:

  • there will be any bundle for modnation? like complete game and some DLC? because i want to get this game from ps store so i want to know, or there wil be any DLC bundle?, i will get it anyway but i just wanted to know if a bundle its on its way.

  • CANADA ! CANADA ! lol

    Great blog… looking forward to the new Oil Stain Mod & Kart. What are the chances we’ll be getting more boat style karts (sub/ swan) ?

    An old beat up Boat/ Pirate Ship kart and a Pirate mod with a hook for a hand would be cool…
