Sackboy Ready To Brave The Pirates Of The Caribbean

LittleBigPlanet has always been about player involvement; making one's own levels can be awfully satisfying. But sometimes, it's just best to leave that to the experts.

This is why the fans have been asking Media Molecule for more professionally designed levels and now, it appears the designers have granted that request. We're not sure when they're coming but according to the latest Trophy update, "Pirates of the Caribbean" will be the theme used in several all-new levels. Obviously, these areas will be based around the new water-level concept in the game, and some of the Trophies we find are Bronzes for destroying the Kraken boss and collecting all the Pirates of the Caribbean Prize Bubbles, along with Silvers for netting a score 7,000 in the Diving for Treasure Survival Challenge and completing the race in Cursed Bay with at least 4,000 Points left on the clock. So yeah, if you've got a hankering for new stuff that isn't necessarily designed by your next door neighbor, Media Molecule will soon step in and show you how it's done. You may recall their insistence that a sequel would be "counterproductive;" they simply want LBP to grow within its original shell.

In an industry that thrives on sequels, it's kinda refreshing to hear this philosophy. Besides, via the PSN, we've already made LBP feel like a whole new game, and all signs point to a ceaseless flow of updates.

EDIT: To my post I couldn't edit... I should have checked the trophies sooner as I thought wolfcrimson were just speculating about the water!

Wonder when it will hit?

Woot!

I personally want more LBP expansions like this one, and not a new sequel.

They aren't going to do a sequel... at least not for a really long time. They want to see this one grow and they don't want to split the community since all the current user created levels would only be accessible in the original LBP.

Oh, this sounds very, very good. Even just watching the commercials for LBP you can see levels that far exceed the original games levels. I can't wait to see what the pros at MM unleash on us.

I'd like to see more games come out that then continue to evolve the same game engine and sell more content via PSN, so that the game evolves instead of constantly having a sequel.

Yeah LBP is an amazing game. It's been out for more than a year and I still have to force myself not to play it just so I can finally get through my other games that I've ignored since last Christmas.

@ Ben - just fyi, the link in your article isn't working for me

I'm sure these new levels won't be free, but I would think the 'water update' would be. I guess we'll find out.

LBP has to be game of the year! This game really taps into one's creative side and the limits are pretty much endless.

interesting.

I wonder (as is everyone else] if Water is with this.

Im thinking it is because why would they show it off and tease...

Last time new levels came with trophies, it was the MGS pack and we got brilliant new tools with that so, i`m definitely thinking it will.

Im a creator rather than player so, new MM levels doesn't excite me too much, i just see them as a tutorial for the new tools.
I don't like to play many levels because i want to be uninfluenced and thus unique.....or so i like to think lol

Mystery solved!

I wonder what music we will get, im hoping for Jacks theme (Hans Zimmer) which they also used for Kingdom Hearts 2's battle music on the PotC planet.

The name of the song you are talking about is He's a Pirate... and definitely agreed! Such a great song!

holy crap thank you MM!!! i've been trying to make a pirate level for what seems like forever... at least i'll now have something full of ideas to help me along my way... but, the problem is, there's going to be a ton of pirate levels after this pack is released... mine won't feel so unique anymore...

can't wait to try out the water though... i'm getting sick of using glass on pistons to imitate water...

I think next is Rachet & Clank since it was confirmed a while ago... also I'm not sure but I think they stopped with the series because one of depps friends got let go from the company so he wouldn't renew his contract or something like that, though I could be wrong.

About time! I got tired of playing those bad levels by users, some levels were completely unplayable. I wanted MM's work.

You're doing it wrong. There are hundreds of amazing levels. And even more that are simply cool physics based experiments. Search for the highest rated ones and prepare to be blown away.

hired LBP PSP from the video store today and gotta say its better than the ps3 version.
im impressed, dident think a large platformer game could work well with the psp but theve really done a good job.
only if the price came down i would buy it.
NO! psp game is worth 60 bucks.
no game.
well except resistance retribution.
best of the series.
in fact better than resistance 1 and 2 put together.
just goes to show, how good the guys at sony bend are.
since my 2 favorite PSP games are theres, and they managed to top insomniac thats not a easy task.
i really hope the rumors of them doing syphon filter 5 for the ps3 are true, because if they are O BOY! are we in for a treat.
huh, once there done with that, they need to go and make a new GOW game for the psp.

LBP will never have a sequel. Because it is forever evolving with every new creation and idea MM can think up. Secondly, there really isn't a story to branch off of. This game is just too awesome. This article has influenced me to finish my masterpiece.

Side-note- I finally beat AC2. That ending surprised the sh** outta me and Ezio! A sequel is definitely evident.
