LittleBigPlanet 3 was announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, E3, of 2014, for the Sony PlayStation 4. It is the first title in the series to feature more than just Sackboy as playable characters, and is set to introduce new dimensions into how a person may play -- literally, making depth a major part of building various levels in the LittleBigPlanet Community.
What exactly is featured in this new title, and what makes it stand out against the rest of the series? LittleBigPlanet is known mainly as a 2D sidescroller with incredible elements to appeal to all senses of the creative mind, a title that truly immerses the player and everyone around him or her. In a story mode, Sackboy and friends are able to work together to traverse large maps by interacting with each other or various objects, build entire playgrounds to share with players online with an unlimited amount of space -- the only restriction is how much room there is on a PS4 hard drive --, and explore a brand new world called Bunkum, inhabited by a seemingly evil knit monster, Newton.
Unlike the second title in the series, however, LittleBigPlanet 3 truly expands on an already popular and well-developed formula. With the introduction of Toggle, the colossal shortstack, Swoop, the ever-adorable bird, and Oddsock, Sackboy's faithful puppy friend, players have new options and methods for exploration. This is especially evident in multiplayer, when two people can cooperate to scale high cliffs or solve confusing puzzles. All three of Sackboy's pals take one similar trait from him -- they can be customized! By dressing up the four playable characters, gamers can develop an even greater sense of attachment to the quirkiness that is LittleBigPlanet.
Of course, Sackboy isn't entirely left out now. In gameplay terms, his arsenal has been updated with a few new weapons and gadgets, including the Pumpinator. Sackboy can also Share any created levels on your PlayStation 4 with the click of a button. Videos can be made of any user-generated levels so that those browsing online can get a nice preview before Diving In to take on the tasks that lie ahead.
