United Front Games has explained the split-screen co-op bits for ModNation Racers over on the US PS Blog.

Announced at GDC, the two and four-person split-screen bit is in addition to the 12-person multiplayer via PSN.

“We wanted to make sure we delivered two-player split-screen. From the start, we wanted our two-player split-screen to work online,” wrote designer Mat Thomas. “ModNation Racers enables you and a friend to go online and play the game together. This makes for intense competition and a lot of fun. You can play action races and pure races together. More importantly, two players can play together on any tracks developed by United Front Games or anyone online.

“Finally, we decided to deliver the four-player couch experience. This was a lot of work, but we have managed to create a great experience where four friends can settle down for some great kart racing. What we have delivered is a fantastic local multiplayer experience reminiscent of some of our best local multiplayer play sessions from years gone by. Again, you can play action or pure race, as well as race on any tracks in the game created by United Front Games or other players.

“Overall, our multiplayer experience has been created to cater to all different players, and we feel that when people play the game they will be able to get the experience they desire. We can’t wait for all our fans to join the ModNation in May.”

It’s out May 25 in the US.
