Sony has posted some awesome information regarding a LittleBigPlanet 2 demo, the beta, and Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves, so we’ll just hush up and get right to the goodies.
Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves
The game, which was outed by Australia’s ratings board last week, is a brand new spin-off PSN title for Move has 10 levels with themes dominated by dinosaurs, where the Evil Big Rex is king. “Throughout your mission you must take on challenges engineered by Terrance Dactyl – and you’re going to some need help, so put on your bear skins and grab up to four friends to navigate the tough terrain of the tropical jungle dodging erupting volcanoes and other environmental hazards standing in your way”, says Sony.
“The player with the PlayStation Move controller leads the charge, flicking switches and triggering platforms to help the other players, using DualShock Controllers, through each level. Leap between Dino heads, use the Move controller to blast aside crates of bubbles, ride dinosaurs through prehistoric cities, and take to the heights of tree canopies—then team up to defeat Big Rex, all while collecting Trophies along the way”.
The game is standalone and does not require the original LittleBigPlanet or LittleBigPlanet 2 to run. To play though, you’ll need a Move controller with Eye and one friend with a DualShock Controller since it is a Move-required and multiplayer-only co-op experience. The game will also be included on the LittleBigPlanet 2 disc when it is released in January.
You can download it on PSN December 14 (US) and 15 (UK) for $5.99/€5.99. The week of December 7, PS Plus members can download it for free.
LittleBigPlanet 2 Story Mode demo
A LittleBigPlanet 2 PSN demo will land on the service come December 21 (US) and 22 (UK).
It will give users a demo a taste of the new Story Mode along with the mechanics and time with the Grapple Hook, and multiplayer. Sounds groovy to us.
LittleBigPlanet 2 beta
Sony plans to expand the beta trial a bit further, so come early December, a new batch of invitations will go out, including PlayStation Plus subscribers, more community contributors, and even some giveaways. An exact date will be announced soon.
