Sony Computer Entertainment Australia have just let us know there will be a ModNation Racers open beta beginning on January 22nd, however, there will only be 100,000 spots and it's open to Europe and Australia, so you might want to get in quick (hopefully it lands on the PlayStation Store our
Jan 22nd to give us a head start).
The beta is free and all you need to do is grab the trial game on Jan 21, as on the 22nd the "green light" will be switched on, opening the trial into a full beta experience. The beta will be open until February 14.
