Long name for a beta right, but trust us you will want to pay attention to this one. The folks over at Sucker Punch have just given up all the details on how you can become a mission designer and have your mission appear in inFAMOUS 2. Yeah we know that would be wild right, wild yes but not impossible. We now have all the details that you need to know about the inFAMOUS 2 Limited Release User Generated Content (UGC) Beta.
You can sign up at http://www.infamousthegame.com/en_US/infamous2/register.html starting right now 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 wait sign up now. They will then randomly select a group of folks to participate in the Beta Test that starts April 12th. From there you will be emailed a golden ticket, but since this ain’t Willy Wonka we will call it a Beta Voucher, in early April. The Beta Vouchers will be sent out in phases, so if you don’t get one immediately don’t panic because you just might get one later. Make sure you watch your spam filters too, because that voucher is the only way you can get in!!
All the legal requirements will be available via a link on infamousthegame.com, pay attention to the guidelines because you don’t want your mission not getting chosen on a technicality. That would be weak. For instance: Even if you are already registered on the website you have to register AGAIN, it’s one of those dumb legal requirements but you have to do it. 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.” This UGC Beta sign up is only open to US residents, as there is a separate process for other territories.
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. This is awesome, do you have what it takes to create an inFAMOUS 2 quality mission?
