Potential candidates can sign up at inFAMOUSthegame.com 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,” Sucker Punch 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.
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.
All the legal requirements are available >here. You wouldn’t want your mission to not make the cut due to a technicality, so make sure you look them over. For instance: Did you know that, even if you already registered to the website, you will need to re-register? 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.
About inFAMOUS 2
Cole MacGrath makes his electrifying return in inFAMOUS 2, the second chapter in the best-selling franchise exclusively for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) system. Developed by Sucker Punch Productions, inFAMOUS 2 takes last summer’s blockbuster to all-new heights in an immersive open world action adventure that offers a more visceral, emotional and powerful take on the true superhero experience.
Blamed for the destruction of Empire City and haunted by the ghosts of his past, reluctant hero Cole MacGrath makes a dramatic journey to the historic Southern city of New Marais in an effort to discover his full super-powered potential - and face a civilization-ending confrontation with a dark and terrifying enemy from his own future. Gifted with extraordinary god-like abilities, Cole alone has the power to save humanity, but the question is- will he choose to do so?
