145w ago - Today Sucker Punch Productions Development Director Chris Zimmerman has revealed alongside a video that InFamous 2 for PS3 will be getting user-created missions offering infinite possibilities as part of a limited Beta this April.
To quote: Here at Sucker Punch, we've spent the last couple of years hard at work on inFAMOUS 2.
Over the last nine months or so, we've talked about a lot of things that make I2 awesome–things like crazy new powers for Cole, super-powered sidekicks, radically improved graphics and special effects, a cool new karma system with branching story lines and multiple endings–but we've managed to keep one major feature completely secret. Until today.
Sandbox games like inFAMOUS 2 are a ton of fun. There's a whole city to explore, and we provide lots of stuff to do in the city... but no matter how many missions and mini-missions and systemic opportunities and branching story lines we add to the game, eventually the story ends.
We thought inFAMOUS 2 would be better if it didn't end–if you never ran out of missions and mini-missions to play and things to do. So... we spent the last two years adding a User-Generated Content feature to the game.
