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.

Just registered. Really like the new design. It has more of a community feel to it.

I am severely dissapointed that Canada is being ignored, again. What gives? I know the rules are different but find a way for us loyal fans. There better be a way for us to get in the future (and by that I mean really soon).

Will inFAMOUS 2 support MOVE or 3D ?

    **Don’t be a Zero, get the Hero! **

    That’s my slogan, just wrote it. Whaddya guys think, is it catchy?

    I’m not sure if I can get this past marketing, though. Not really in my job description. ;)


+ XxNo0b_H8rxX on March 14th, 2011 at 5:40 pm said:

I think I should get beta access if I pre ordered the hero edition, let alone the game at all.

+ Dice_for_Death_ on March 14th, 2011 at 6:57 pm said:

Looking forward to inFamous 2. Scoring the trophy to the first title wasn’t the toughest, but hopefully the sequel will bring more of a challenge to the table.

+ Argetlam350 on March 14th, 2011 at 8:07 pm said:

Well my computer screwed my entry up. After I entered my details in and checked the boxes, it registered me but all the boxes were filled still and then it registered me again. So now I’m worried I’m going to get disqualified due to technical difficulties since two entries were sent in with my email address. :(


+ twistedfloyd on March 14th, 2011 at 8:25 pm said:

I am registered! Can’t wait, hope I get in. inFamous 2 is going to be one of the best games of the year! Thanks Sony and Sucker Punch!


+ Lolsa1 on March 14th, 2011 at 8:31 pm said:

AWESOME!!! I really hope I get in.


+ bgardner on March 14th, 2011 at 8:34 pm said:

Nice Canada is ignored once again -_-


+ Tomskevo on March 15th, 2011 at 6:07 am said:

Australia misses out as well. :(

Damn, InFamous is one of my favourite single player games on PS3, the first game I platinumed and I love LBP for the creation aspects, really wanted to get in on this beta…

Is there any hope for Aus/NZ Playstation Plus subscribers perhaps?


+ snoopypup248 on March 15th, 2011 at 7:52 am said:

Sounds sick. Really looking forward to this game.


+ RAMPANT84 on March 15th, 2011 at 9:59 am said:

this could be the difference between buy and rent for Infamous2


+ Smooth423 on March 15th, 2011 at 11:06 am said:

I was really excited about this game until…….you added a weapon. Why? I will probably rent this game now. Should have called me first I would have told you what not to do. Thanks!


+ ZDWilder on March 15th, 2011 at 12:36 pm said:

Hope I get picked. I made really good levels in Little big planet 2 and I spent a lot of time working on them, however nobody played them. I’m hoping I can get the demo and maybe this time things will be different.


+ LeoMindfreak08 on March 15th, 2011 at 2:47 pm said:

I have an invitation vía Killzone 3, and I a PS+ Member… it´s the same?


+ dragon_frost on March 15th, 2011 at 3:17 pm said:

@ Wilson Cheng…Playstation move & 3D enabled?


+ luchoalbo on March 15th, 2011 at 3:30 pm said:

que sorprendente es infamous 2


+ Super4Gogeta on March 15th, 2011 at 3:50 pm said:

Why isnt there a Canada option on the site?


+ ericscolon on March 15th, 2011 at 8:12 pm said:

i hope you guys spend more time fixing bugs i dont want to be running down street and come to a dead stop where i end up running in place for no reason. also dont want to get stuck in wall and in the ground like i did multiple times while defending the prison. lastly take out coles magnetic attraction to the edges on buildings that got pretty annoying.


+ iKANNIBAL on March 15th, 2011 at 9:25 pm said:

Signed up, but i hope PS plus members get it anyway.


+ smileylyon on March 16th, 2011 at 6:29 pm said:

This is great news!


+ EvilAngel34 on March 16th, 2011 at 6:39 pm said:

cant wait for this game so cool


+ calveztmj on March 19th, 2011 at 5:09 am said:

I sent it on the site, and it says your information has been sent or whatever, but no email. I quadruple checked the email to make sure its right, but no confirmation. Do I only get one if I win? On another note,

I REALLY NEED THIS!!!!! I’ve submitted about 37 times and I will not stop until I either get horribly hungry or pass out at my keyboard. Even then, I will eat or sleep or whatever and keep going. I will continuously register until the due date, because I have gone through so much [DELETED] for inFamous out of sheer obsession, and June is WAY too far away. I am DEDICATED to win this beta!!!!!!!!


+ calveztmj on March 19th, 2011 at 5:35 am said:

If I get a “Beta Voucher,” do they email the game or do I have to go somewhere to pick it up/play it? I am an American citizen, and have a shipping address for them to mail it to so I get it, but I technically live overseas. Thus, I cannot go somewhere to pick it up/play it.


+ Tommy012345 on March 19th, 2011 at 2:46 pm said:

Hopefully my 3+ years on LittleBigPlanet will help with this :D

wow , interesting!! But i think it


+ Natanielnall on March 19th, 2011 at 7:22 pm said:
