What a great way to start off your week. Today Sony has officially announced LittleBigPlanet 2 for the PlayStation 3. Once again the game will be made by the super talented folks over at Media Molecule. This time around you can expect one of the most ambitious games of this generation. No longer is LBP about building levels, now it’s about building entire games. It really has become its own platform for building levels. It’s possible to create shooters, RPGs, top-down racers, and anything else your fancy little brain can think of. You even have complete control over the camera, so survival horror fans will be able to create some “shocking” moments as well. Every level you create can then be linked together to form entire “worlds.” Oh, and the best news of all, the two millions user-created levels that are already online, well they’ll remain where they are. You can even tweak them with all the new features.
Sony promises much more information around E3 2010, which is fantastic since we’ll be there in person. LBP 2 will be released this winter. You can be sure we’ll have much more information in the coming weeks and months leading up to its eventual release.
