Sucker Punch announced the new feature at GDC and we get our first glimpse of the creation tools in this video. If you needed another reason to get excited about inFamous 2, I don’t think it gets any better than this. Apparently players are going to get the same tools the developers used to make the game, which should result in some pretty fantastic user-generated content. While I don’t think the tools are quite as flexible as say, Little Big Planet 2, they are quite welcome in a genre that usually doesn’t get cool features like this. I can’t wait to see what people come up with after they get familiar with the creation tools. Granted, the tools aren’t as robust as the ones in Little Big Planet 1 & 2, but if the user-generated content from those games is any indication of the creative nature of some of you people out there, we should be in for a real treat.
There will be a “limited” public beta starting in April. You can get the lowdown on how to sign up for it on the official site for inFamous 2 on March 14th.
