Road Trip, No Online racing and No ModSpot confirmed.

26 Replies 2,257 Views Created 11-01-2012

From the Live Chat today with the developers.

 

"Comment From Zyketor: 

The PSP version had 6 player Infrastructure Online multiplayer, but according to the official box for MNR: RT, it only supports ad-hoc, no online multiplayer (racing, not sharing). Can you please give us a for sure answer as to if Road Trip has online via infrastructure racing, not just sharing? 

 

Vernon:

Hey Zyketor, we are supporting Ad-Hoc however not infrasructure as in Head to Head. With all of the other online features though, Ghost Laps, Regional Leaderboards with times beat notifcations, etc. We went with more of an Asynchronous online feature set that is really robust! We'll share more about all of these online features as we get closer to launch! "

 

"Comment From Xuphor:

Will Modnation Racers: Roadt Trip support a ModSpot ala the PS3 version for a lobby, or will it be lobby-less like the PSP version?

 

MVdor:  We wanted to keep ModSpot unique for the PS3, but with Near, you'll be able to interact with PS Vita owners around you and share your unlocked items via the PS Vita's 'gifting' feature. "

 

Shame. Cancelling pre-order today. No Online Racing in a Modnation Game? Seriously? What the hell?

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!!!!!??????!!!!!!!!!

The best of MNR is the online racing. Thats what happens when their are two different studios making the same game (ala Call of Duty franchise).

 

I can see the death of the modnation Franchise on the horizon.

Yeah I was rather surprised by this news, racing online is such a huge part of Modnation, and it was in the PSP game even! I didn't plan on getting it before this news but this is a disappointment for sure.

It sounded like MNR: RT is going with an "NFSPD Autolog" style online play...

I still think its pretty Beast, plus we'll find out more in the next few weeks :smileyvery-happy:

Ouch!!  How lame.

 

Makes me feel better about not putting up that much money to purchase it.

really disappointing at ModNation:RT without online races. Does it mean we can only play head-to-head ad-hoc play up to 4 ppl?

Re: Road Trip, No Online racing and No ModSpot confirmed.

HUUUUGE Surprise! I thought for online was a given. Some other info was given but before anyone asks, the chat was about the PSVita version MNR so there was no point in asking about a future MNR in the chat. But the developers are reading the forums and such so hopefully another chat can be arranged about that. Until then just keep adding to the MNR2 threads, apparently they're watching them. Hopefully some good comes out of it...
