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 the news I was waiting all day for :) Awesome.

  • Definitely signing up for this!

  • Shadow-Man_4

    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!

  • I have some crazy ideas for some missions if it’s possible
    and not like the level creator of LBP.

    I’m signin up whether I make it or not.

  • Hurry up 2pm…

  • Yea, I don’t see the “Sign Up for the UGC Beta” link on the front page.

    hey guys, the sign up site will be up soon. sorry for the delay here.

  • 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!!!!

  • Define soon. I don’t want to break my f5 key.

  • Can’t wait! You guys rock.

  • Signing up asap! This feature looks sweet!

  • This blog looks so much better now.

  • Can’t wait to get my hands on Infamous, I haven’t platinum the first but will in due time. Keep up the good work guys, Only on playstation.

  • Ho much longer? I think my PC is locking up from hitting F5 to much, I already rubbed off the F and the 5 is starting to fade!!!

  • Sign up still isn’t up.

  • fail for US Only.

    Canada is North America too. Stop forgetting this you useless asses.

  • bigdaddykraven

    *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.” :)

  • Nice. I’m In. :D Can’t wait for this Game or even design a level. I hope my ideas are useful on this Game that would be epic. :) Thanks Sucker Punch for releasing one of the most EPIC Games! 1st Sly Cooper and now inFamous! EPIC Games EPIC Developers. Keep the good work guys. :)

      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. ;)

  • Ugh, the anticipation is killing me!

  • Amazing! I’m signing up right away!

  • @tonydamiani what you mean by “I’m in” The sign up page isn’t up yet…

  • radiantshadow92

    im going crazy here!!

  • @SeanScythe. I know dude. What I meant is that I’m in the second I can sign up. hehehe :P

  • Im pacing back and forth in my office hitting the refresh button chanting ….gotta sign up!! gotta sign up!!

  • Registered. Tony Stark would be proud.

  • It’s up but no checkbox for Enter me into the UGC Beta Program Sweepstakes

  • It’s ONLINE! GO REGISTER!

  • The sign-up is up now! Hopefully, I make it in!

  • drownedphoniex

    Gah! The suspense is killing me! Please update the site!

  • BlazednSleepy

    It’s up but theres nothing like a checkbox assuring me i’ve entered into the beta..

    what gives?

    • Wilson Cheng
      Wilson Cheng

      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.

  • 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?

  • Busca-Cabezas

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

  • BlazednSleepy

    Cheng! what goin on!? lol

  • radiantshadow92

    alright i think i just registered

  • falconsfan07

    I don’t see the box to check for the BETA. Only the one for the regular sweepstakes but no BETA check box.

  • BlazednSleepy

    ITS UP WITH THE BETA CHECKBOX!! GO GO GO!

  • Busca-Cabezas

    I think they took away the BETA sign up already!! Grrrr!!! I entered the beta page and it says to check mark the enter the beta but there is no feature for the BETA sign up… Bummer!!!! ='(

  • I just registered ITS LIVE!

  • BlazednSleepy

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

  • 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! :)

  • BlazednSleepy

    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.

  • drownedphoniex

    YES! I registered! Hope that I get in!

  • XxDeathDoctorxX

    this game looks like its goin to be good and off topic why doesnt it show who is a ps+ user yet while the euro blog does

  • TheGuardianFID

    Done aaaaannnnddd, Done!!! 8)

  • Hitting register just clears the forms…

  • BlazednSleepy

    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,

  • I hope I got in.

    Good luck to everyone though… everyone deserves to play this awesome masterpiece.
