PlayStation 3 kart title ModNation Racers is to be updated with a “casual” difficulty setting for the game’s career mode – something that probably should’ve been there from the outset.

The new difficulty will be contained within a patch that addresses a number of unnamed fixes.

Community manager Russell Ramone writes on the official PlayStation blog, “One of the improvements is the addition of a ‘casual’ career difficulty that has less ‘aggressive’ computer-controlled racers. I was able to spend some time last week playing the new build. Let me just say that I had a blast playing through the casual career difficulty and I think those that have been asking for this will be very pleased when you can get your hands on it!”

There’s no date yet for the patch, but Ramone has promised more ModNation Racers news next week.
