inFAMOUS 2 Limited Release Beta: Mission Designers Wanted

inFAMOUS 2: User Generated Missions

Want to become Famous? Want to become a Mission Designer and have your mission appear in inFAMOUS 2? As promised, here are the juicy details of how to participate in the inFAMOUS 2 Limited Release User Generated Content (UGC) Beta.

Potential candidates can sign up at inFAMOUSthegame.com starting on Monday March 14th at 12pm Noon Pacific Time using the “Sign Up for the UGC Beta” link on the front page. The sign-up period will only last for one week, ending March 21st at 2pm Pacific, so don’t miss your chance to create. Using what can only be described as “voodoo magic,” we will select a group of lucky winners to participate in the Beta Test, starting April 12th. The ambitious and talented Mission Designers that are selected will be emailed a golden ticket, which is technically called a Beta Voucher, in early April. The Beta Vouchers will be sent out in phases, so if you do not get one immediately, you may receive one later on. Don’t let it get spam-filtered out, because it’s the only way you can get in!

All the legal requirements are available here. Read them, know them, live them, because you wouldn’t want your mission to not make the cut due to a technicality. That would be weak. For instance: Did you know that, even if you already registered to the website, you will need to re-register? See what I mean? You didn’t. Neither did I, but it is a legal requirement. You need to register your email on the registration page, by clicking the cleverly titled checkbox that says “Enter me into the UGC Beta Program Sweepstakes.”

Also, this UGC Beta sign up is only open to US residents, as there is a separate process for other territories.

We want to see what you can do, so don’t sleep on this. Keep in mind, the best of these missions will be handpicked by Sucker Punch to auto-populate into every user’s game world on or near the launch day of inFAMOUS 2. If that smells like win to you, then do your best to be creative, innovative, and to polish your mission(s) to the quality of a shipping title. Beta participants will lead the way at launch, but once the game is released, the floodgates open for mission designers around the globe to Become FAMOUS.

This is AWESOME news!
I really can’t wait.. But one question, the Beta sign-up page is still not “live” yet as of right now, right?

The Mission creator looks very cool. I’m a big fan of LittleBigPlanet 2, so inFamous mission creator is something I’m drooling over. I’m very excited about creating missions! I hope I get into the beta. I know its not likely that I will, but it would be awesome. Can’t wait to play the game!

Sweeeeeet. Glad to see that there is going to be a lot more replay value. That is probably my biggest issue with single player games (including the first infamous). I will play through a game once or twice and then i’m done. Now, i’ll NEVER be done playing infamous 2! Thanks Sucker Punch!!!!

*Shakes fist* How dare you tease me. I’m trying to sneak and sign up for this at work (I’m a graphic designer so your designed site is easy to hide on my screen). Can’t wait to see this game, hearing about the editor for this game turned it from “Will be cool to play” to “can’t wait to play it.” :)

    I hope so too, Mr. Damiani, but I regret to inform you that you have exceeded the maximum number of “EPIC”s allowed by law in a single forum post. Please see that you use caution in future posts, but don’t hold back when and if you design a mission for us. ;)

    It’s now live. Please make sure you check the UGC Sweepstakes box when you register. If you did not, please re-register and click the box.


32

+ Gorvi on March 14th, 2011 at 12:41 pm said:

It says on the front page to go to the register page, but that only has the general registration for the site. Is the “enter me into the sweepstakes” option referring to the beta?


33

+ Busca-Cabezas on March 14th, 2011 at 12:42 pm said:

I still see no sign up for the BETA…. Where is it? Can anyone post a direct page link for it? ='(

Are we going to get any type of email confirming our registration for the beta?


42

+ df2506 on March 14th, 2011 at 12:47 pm said:

I just saw the Beta check box on the site and registered. I had to hit refresh a couple of times before the Beta check box showed up. In any case, I’m registered. Here’s hoping I get in the beta! :)

Did anybody get an email after registering?

I didnt.

I don’t think they’ll send you an email unless you’re picked. But that’s just a theory.

Well i mean an email confirmation for registering. I did say information received at the bottom of the page. But having an email sent as some sort of assurance is nice to have,
