I know I'm not supposed to talk about the beta details (gameplay, logic, creating ect.) but I am allowed to talk about the features you guys already know from the trailers and interviews.
So far I have played some of the gameplay and create mode. Its really fun! The carting gameplay is very well done and feels nothing like Modnation racers. It feels like LBP! The way sackboy bounces abound in his kart really makes it funny and light hearted. The weapons, grappling hook, bounce pads, ect. are very smooth and easy to use for creative races. The music is amazing! In my opinion better then LBP2! Online mode is also very clever and well done.
The creative mode is great as well. At first it can be confusing, but once you get used to the controls, you can make some pretty cool 3D objects and maps. Anybody who has played Modnation Racers will be familiar with it. There are still a lot of bugs, but its still in the early stages of the alpha, so it'll get much better as it gets updated.
I have played the game for three days now and so far I have published a Race called "Volcano Highway" and reported 12 bugs. The community races are kind of lacking a little, but there aren't that many people familiar with the controls yet, so its understandable. You know how there are thousands of levels on the LBP2 cool pages, well LBPK Beta only has 5! XD
If you guys have any questions then comment below! Keep in mind, the beta is under NDA so Im not allowed to give away the experience, but I can still answer some simple questions.
Thanks for reading!
