inFamous 2 will be getting a limited public beta in April to test the User Generated Content functionality of the game. Sucker Punch spent the last two years adding a User-Generated Content feature to the game, allowing players to build new missions, then share them with the world. Details about the beta will be announced on March 14th 2011.
There really aren’t a lot of limits to the sorts of missions you can build. Sure, you can build the sort of missions that will ship on the inFAMOUS 2 disk. Mission creators have access to the same set of characters, creatures and props. User-generated missions show up in the world just like regular missions. When you walk up to them, you see the PSN tag of the mission creator, plus extra information like the mission’s current rating.
Popular levels will be promoted to the Sucker Punch Featured Missions list, and those missions will end up just about everyone’s copy of New Marais.
