Infamous 2's Mission Creator

If you thought the original Infamous ran out of missions too quickly, developer Sucker Punch has you covered. Infamous 2 is going to let you create your own missions. Right now at GDC, Sony is unveiling a brand new system in the sequel that will allow players to place enemies objects and more to create your very own challenges that pop up in New Marais. A trailer listed missions that included: Defense, Escort, Search and Destroy, Survival, Shooting Gallery, Platforming, and Obstacle Course.

The story is too old to be commented.

sweet cant wait for this game c'mon already

Headquarters112548d ago

FUUUUUCK, I would've loved a free roam multiplayer mode like in GTA and Red Dead. This is disappointing.

2fk2548d ago

No need bro....this game really doesn't feel like a mp type of game im actually just looking foward to single player with lots of DLC hopefully

blumatt2548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

Online multiplayer is NOT needed for a game to be great. Regardless of what some people would say this generation, single player experiences aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

And, personally, I've grown tired of online multiplayer lately. I'll hop on some KZ3 multiplayer or some CoD4 Team Deathmatch every once in awhile, but not that often. I've been a single player guy the last couple months.

@blumatt

Sure, inFamous doesn't need it, but it would make it 1,000 times better. Nothing too complex, just something easy like Saint's Row 2 had where a player can drop in or out of the world.

I'd rather have that than a mission creator.

-Alpha2548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

Something as simple as sharing your created levels online would be really cool, but this is a very creative feature already.

Imagine creating little time trials and having leaderboards for your custom missions :O

You don't need to have a competitive MP to have a unique online component. I remember hearing a rumor/reading an article on SP hiring folks for MP so I have my fingers crossed

ExplosionSauce2548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

No, it would not make it 1000 times better.
Think about how that would play out.
In other games, any faceless character can pick up a gun and shoot it.
But they all can't play just like Cole.

@Alpha-Male,
Yes.

sikbeta2548d ago

Freaking Sweet, next step, Share on-line pretty much like LBP levels, that would be totally awesome...

Headquarters112548d ago

Not competitive multiplayer, I mean, just exploring the city with a friend would be very cool I think. It would make the game much more awesome.

nickjkl2547d ago

im suprised just how many people are against any kinda of multiplayer

Steffl3r2547d ago

@ blumatt
I feel you but then again it sounds like your just playing more of the same old stuff over and over just for Killzone and CoD4. First Person competitive burns out after awhile. Give Red Dead Redemption or Assassins Creed Brotherhood a shot if your looking for something with a little bit of originality. I was in the same position awhile ago being burned out on multiplayer but I haven't been able to put either of those two down for quite some time.

vickers5002547d ago

"No, it would not make it 1000 times better."

Uh yeah, it would.

"Think about how that would play out.
In other games, any faceless character can pick up a gun and shoot it.
But they all can't play just like Cole. "

First of all, they wouldn't necessarily have to, second, what would be the problem with that? Going around the city blowing sh*t up with a friend, killing civilians/enemies creatively, tackling missions together, or just have a brawl between each other when you get bored. Something like that would make the game 1,000 times more fun and replayable.

A mission creator, while cool, is going to get old FAST if you can't create your own environments/levels.

What would be wrong with having two Coles (or a differently skinned person with the same ability, perhaps kessler) running around blowing crap up when you're not doing missions? Would it really pain you that much to see more than one person running around with the same abilities?

The story in inFamous is interesting/entertaining, but it's not anything like MGS4 or Bioshock where if you see something out of place, it takes you out of the immersion.

I really couldn't give a crap about some team deathmatch bs, but having the ability to have a friend drop in after you're done with the story and go around creatively causing havoc and mayhem would make the game MUCH MUCH better. Better than some mission creator which is probably going to get old, unoriginal, and repetitive very fast.

QuodEratDemonstrandm2547d ago

Multiplayer? Really? Not InFamous. You have DCUO for that.
@2fk WTH do you need lots of DLC for? It's got "Play, Create, Share." I'll make some extra missions for you and you won't even have to pay for them.
@ the boneheads hoping for the option to play created missions.... READ THE FRAPPIN ARTICLE. You CAN share your created missions, and you CAN play other people's created missions.

@ the article: Coooool.

infamousinfolite2547d ago

So in other words, you want a MP component where it only features one super-powered guy??? And even if there is another super-powered being it would get boring just to have one guy be the same villian/hero each time they play. MP would not fit well unless the story has you meet with some friends and together they create a Band of Super-powered Beings.

RyuCloudStrife2547d ago (Edited 2547d ago )

Yeah I agree 100% with you dude that would be WAY better what your suggesting about the multi-player...this already is out the door for me as I'm not the type that be creating levels and whatnot in a game I leave that to designers... But as you said this:

"First of all, they wouldn't necessarily have to, second, what would be the problem with that? Going around the city blowing sh*t up with a friend, killing civilians/enemies creatively, tackling missions together, or just have a brawl between each other when you get bored.

What would be wrong with having two Coles (or a differently skinned person with the same ability, perhaps kessler) running around blowing crap up when you're not doing missions?"

sounds WAY better :).. oh well inFamous 3...

EDIT: Its RLY stupid/funny how people where like MP before the reveal or whatnot NOW you mention MP and people bring out the Witch burning laws... ahhh what a bunch of hypocrites...

Dee_912547d ago

yea i was looking forward to multiplayer
but this sound just as fun .. almost

Ascalon942547d ago

that would be pretty sick but I think we will survive man

something mass effect 2 needed imo, just release a level editor.

timesplitters did it, bout time its making a comback on consoles.

Steffl3r2547d ago

Nah Mass Effect 2 was fine without. Maybe as a Mass Effect 3 add on but in Mass Effect 2 it wouldnt have made sense in context. In Mass Effect 3 they could do without any major consequences. But IF they did it I would like to see something on the lines of a full on map editor as well instead of seeing rehashed areas. Otherwise it would be Mass Effect 1 all over again lol. But a map/mission editor something on the lines of Far Cry would be amazing.

badz1492548d ago

I'm already content with the SP offering alone like the 1st but any extra is greatly appreciated! lots and lots of missions and genius minds out there will sure come out with good missions like how great minds are leading the way in LBP! can't wait!

Balt 2548d ago

It sounds good in theory but if you can't share them or import others into your game what is the point? I dont want multiplayer in the game, and this sounds hot, but if we just make a mission then we already know how to tackle it. it'd be pointless.

jwk942548d ago

I think people's missions can be imported into your game, the way the article explains it, it makes it seem as if it will just appear in your game some how.

NAGNEWS2547d ago

yes you can share your lvls, if you look closer at 1:45 (the video) you can see that the lvl is made or CREATED BY: irok_56, and that means you can pick it and play it

LethalChickens2548d ago

I'm sure you will be able to share it. it's Little Big inFAMOUS

VenomProject2548d ago

For once, I agree.

What's the point of creating a fleshed out mission if you already know the vantage points, weak spots, enemy spawns, etc.?

2548d ago
silvacrest2547d ago

i can't believe you actually asked that question

did you say the same thing with LBP2?

Focker4202547d ago (Edited 2547d ago )

I seriously don't understand how people aren't getting this...

YOU CAN PLAY OTHER PEOPLE'S LEVELS!!!!!!!!!!

labaronx2548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

the game looks great, graphics made a big jump, and the story has me intrigued....

a mission creator sounds awesome but like you said would be sorta pointless if we cant share them

BUBBLE

Trevonn2548d ago

because we would realy just create levels /s for areselfs of course we will be able to share them

starchild2548d ago

There has got to be some way to share them.

dead_eye2548d ago

“Infamous 2 will have user-generated levels, Sucker Punch says at GDC. Apparently the user generated missions will be integrated into the single player story mode somehow. If your mission is played by a lot of people and highly rated, Sucker Punch will drop it into the single player game. Interesting stuff.”

that was from the first article so looks like you can play the missions.

still think co-op will come.

Gamehead362548d ago

Under the video in the article:

"Once the creation is whipped up and uploaded, it's shared with the world."

Am I missing something here?

Trevonn2548d ago

typical people that dont read the article i guess

Christopher2548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

Edit: Beat to the punch by Gamehead36 while I went to get nachos :p

Yeah, this is content that can be uploaded and shared around the world. And, like LBP, you'll be able to vote on the content as well and higher voted content will be more prominent when you go to download new content.

NAGNEWS2547d ago (Edited 2547d ago )

THAT IS AWESOME !!

VenomProject2547d ago

@silvacrest

Yes, I did actually. How do you put the disc into the PS3? I'm still stumped on that one.

Sucker Punch Never Cease to Impress Me...

belal2548d ago

damn this is awesome, but imagine this with multiplayer!

DragonKnight2547d ago

Yeah, 8 people who all look identical (as Cole) running around the map shooting the same powers at each other sounds really unique and enjoyable. /s

belal2547d ago

you my friend have no imagination, who said that all has to be the same? have you played assasins creed? you can with eas create different characters with different powers only in mp, use your brain :)

DragonKnight2547d ago

And what would be the point? With Assassin's Creed, they have a good premise for online. What exactly would be the premise behind I2's? Unless you want to conveniently come up with "oh, well we didn't say this before but, Cole wasn't the only one who got powers, so surprise here's online".

Use your head. Not every game needs, or can work, online.

RyuCloudStrife2547d ago (Edited 2547d ago )

why would they NEED to shoot at each other ? Why would they be identical? Why would there be 8? Why saying you want MP for this game NOW(after the reveal) is such a blasphemy? MP would have been better(period)

DragonKnight2547d ago

@Bill Nye: Prove it. How would MP make a game designed around SP better? Submit a premise for the Infamous universe that would be a feasible option for online.

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is able to use the Animus as a training platform for Abstergo agents, hence why online works. Without introducing some method of explaining why people other than Cole have powers, where they previously did not, how would online have a suitable premise to build on? Since you are "the science guy" I look forward to a cogent response.

Focker4202547d ago

The only way a multiplayer would really work is if it was like an open world free roam similar to red dead redemption.

DragonKnight2547d ago

@Focker: How though. How would gameplay fit in with the universe?
