It always bums me out to think that the mere inclusion of split screen in a game can be considered newsworthy. As great as Internet gaming is, it wasn’t so long ago that multiplayer with friends was a much more personal ordeal — more than anything else, I miss being able to punch people in the arm for being super cheap.
But enough of that talk; this is supposed to be a post bearing happy news. Matt Thomas from United Front Games informs us of a heartwarming development on the ModNation Racers scene: the game will feature 4-person split screen, like all good cart racers should.
Furthermore, two-player split screen can work in conjunction with online races, should you want to take a nearby friend on an Internet journey — wait, that came out all wrong. The gist of this story is that ModNation Racers is pretty well covered when it comes to on-the-couch tomfoolery. Cheers to that, UFG!
