Become Famous by creating your own content in ‘inFAMOUS 2’

Sucker Punch just announced that they’ve added a full Content Creation system to inFAMOUS 2. The toolset is quite easy to understand, and includes a ton of control and functionality.

As seen in similar titles like LittleBigPlanet and ModNation Racers, any content created can be uploaded for others to play and rate. They didn’t actually evoke the “Play Create Share” moniker, but what we’re seeing so far is pretty in-line with other titles that have this functionality, with one big difference. Many of the user created content integrates directly into the game, so unlike the other games mentioned, it sounds like you don’t have to go to a separate section to download the content.

During the demo, 2 members of the QA team displayed the content creation tools in action. The amount of control that you have is quite impressive actually. Essentially anything can be controlled, including limiting Cole’s powers in specific missions. We saw examples of something similar to a ‘Horde Mode’, an obstacle course, and a shooting gallery, all along with missions similar to what you’ve seen in inFAMOUS before.

To fully test the entire system, a limited beta will start sometime in April (details coming soon.) They’ve already stated that most content that’s created during the beta will be wiped, but a select set of content that Sucker Punch really likes will be available online when the game launches in June. Also, keep your eyes on the site for a full update on inFAMOUS 2, as we’ve been playing it quite a bit here at GDC.

We can post images and video in about an hour, so stay-tuned!

*UPDATE* Media!

  • They may not call it Play.Create.Share, but user-based content with such a powerful creation toolset is going to help catapult inFamous to the next level of greatness. I was excited for the sequel before seeing the trailers and this announcement, but now I can’t wait. Sucker Punch appears to have honed, polished, and amped everything up to level 11!
