LittleBigPlanet’s Create mode, which sees up to four players hopping, bopping, and generally glee-ing a level into existence, will only be available as an offline mode when the game launches. In a forum thread on the official PlayStation website, developer “Sam_Protagonist” confirmed the disheartening news.
“The ability to create with your friends online will come as part of the first major update after the game is released,” Sam wrote. “Offline creating with up to 4 people on one PlayStation 3 however is available right from the get go.”
“The next question will undoubtedly be ‘when is the first update due’ and right now there is no specific time set at the moment, however with the game having gone gold, the team at Media Molecule are already hard at work on content for the game after its release, with online multiplayer creating top of the list.”
We’re in tears, but we still can’t wait for the game. How about you?
