Pre-Order Bonuses are special bonuses that players get when they pre-ordered ModNation Racers. Different retailers offered different Mods based on other popular PlayStation franchises.
- Game Stop US and Play.com UK - Kratos and his Kart of Chaos.
- Amazon.com - Ratchet and Clank.
- Best Buy US and Game UK - Nathan Drake and his Jungle Jeep.
- Game Crazy - Sackboy
- Mac's Stores (Canadian Version Only) - Froster Character
In addition to these guaranteed Mods, each player will get an additional Bonus Mystery Mod and Kart package that include not just a special Mod and Kart, but additional accessories that you can use to make your own creations!
- Despite being only available by pre-ordering ModNation Racers, they later all became purchasable mods (with the exception of Sackboy).
