inFAMOUS 2 Update 3. Titan, Devourer, Mission Linking, Mission Reviews, & More
inFAMOUS 2 Update 3 is now live and we have packed it full of goodies for you, all for FREE! We have been quiet for a little bit because we are hard at work with tons of improvements and new features for inFAMOUS 2 UGC.
First on the list is are bosses! Everyone loves bosses and we are giving you two! The Devourer and Titan are now placeable characters in UGC! These are mammoth characters that can be used in any way you can think of. Have the two be friends, have them fight each other, have them protect Cole. It is all up to you! Be sure to click on the image for a huge 1080p screenshot!
Second on the list is Mission Linking. Shortly after the launch of inFAMOUS 2 we started to see UGC mission series, one great example is The Conduit Community Saga by jedicam10, which continues the first mission's story over a series of missions. Playing these missions in order was a little on the challenging side and we wanted to make it easier for the mission creators and the fans playing these missions, and Mission Linking does that! You can now select another mission as a follow-up mission. Just update the properties on the Mission Start in the editor and publish all the missions associated. Once they're all on the server you'll have a link series of missions. When a player completes the mission they will be given the option to continue directly to the next linked mission.
Next on the list is the new Mission Review system, which allows you to submit a short review for any UGC mission you play. As we get close to 80,000 UGC missions, having mission reviews will make it easier to find great missions and help authors receive feedback to which will allow them to fix issues and create even better ones! Mission Reviews can be viewed at mission beacons in the gameworld, at local missions which have been published, and in the search results menu.
We have also tweaked a number of existing features, added some new minor ones, and fixed some bugs including:
• Relative Health. You can now change “Health” and “Cole’s Energy” modifiers as percentages.
• Volume/Monitor Reset. New “Reset When’ option on Volume and Monitor logic objects lets you change how or when they can be reset after being triggered.
• Author Mission Search. Search results will now display the level author’s name.
