New User-Created EchoChrome Levels Coming To PS3

50°
351w ago - Kumi Yuasa, associate producer for the perspective-bending PlayStation Network title echochrome, has revealed that twenty all-new user-created challenges will be playable through the game's freeform mode sometime later this this month.

Yuasa didn't mention a concrete date, but did say that the levels would launch "between May 15 and May 21."

Players will need to set their difficulty level to at least 2 or 3 to experience the new levels. Additionally, the creators of each level will be rewarded in the form of recognition starting this week, as Yuasa will reveal their PSN ID on the PlayStation Blog.

As a couple commenters over at the PS Blog have pointed out, it would be far more convenient if the levels could be downloaded and played at will, instead of randomly through freeform mode.

dubsix: Well it was all about points, so I had to be greedy and get as many as possible, they were long matches and had to keep in the action the whole time
