Sucker Punch, the developer behind the inFamous series, started teasing big news yesterday and they’ve now blown the lid off the surprise… and what an explosion it was.
When inFamous 2 ships this June, it will do so with a built in ‘level creator’ that anyone can use. With this tool, you can create many different kinds of missions (defense, platform, escort, etc.) and fine tune them to however you see fit. You can even place your own objects and enemy spawn locations wherever you deem necessary to craft a level that is completely your own. Once you’re done, you’ll be able to share them with others via the PlayStation Network.
Sucker Punch will even be watching for the highest rated levels so they can be displayed more prominently to a larger audience.
Exciting news, right? Brace yourself, there’s more. There’s going to be a beta dedicated to this new mode that will launch some time in April. Sucker Punch is calling it a public beta but it sounds like you’re still going to have sign up for it. They’ve promised to release more information on March 14. Until then, check out the trailer below to get a better idea of what to expect.
