Video Thirst: Introducing The inFamous 2 Player Creation Suite – The Full Quencher

Yesterday Sucker Punch said it would reveal a secret its held for 2 years, and late last night the developer kept its promise by unveiling the all new inFamous 2 player creation suite, a new feature allowing gamers to create their own content, complete with tools to do the job.

The full quencher, including video and screens, is past the break.

There’s a public beta coming in April that will allow users to custom create their own maps, having the ability to share them as they please. There will be more information coming on March 14th on how exactly one will be able to join the beta.

Here’s inFamous 2 director Chris Zimmerman to explaining more:

“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,” he said over at the US PS Blog.

The new feature allows for much freedom too, as users will have access to all the game’s characters, props and enemies, allowing for all sorts of inFamous builds, and will also allow users to make totally different mission types.

“Wish [inFamous 2] had pure stealth missions?” he asked teasingly. “No problem, you can create stealth missions.

Looking for more of a challenge? Try taking away some of Cole’s powers—see how the player does facing a platoon of Militia wielding only his Amp.

Or add an old-school platforming challenge, or a race, or… I could go on all day. … Skeet shooting? No problem. Disc golf? Assuming you’re happy tossing around cars instead of Frisbees, sure. How about a mission where Zeke just tells you bad jokes until you shoot him? Um, yeah, you can do that, too.”

Those missions created by users will appear in-game as they’re created the same way as regular missions, and those that are ranked really high will be highlighted to other players by Sucker Punch.

It’s important to also note that Sony seems to be mapping a trend that sees many of its games join the Play Create Share bandwagon. The most notable being LittleBigPlanet and ModNationRacers.

Find some new screens below. inFamous 2 comes out on June 7th in the U.S. No European date’s been announced.
