Today the EA Play Label of Electronic Arts Inc.announced that Create will be available this week to buy on multiple platforms in stores throughout North America and Europe.
Create is an expansive challenge-based game, with a nearly infinite set of solutions for the player to explore. The Challenge mode offers a series of puzzles with a specific goal to be achieved and provides a number of fun and creative objects to come up with a solution. Points are allocated based on the number of objects used, and the overall creativity of the solution. There are numerous types of challenges, from those where players will need to find the most efficient and elegant solution to others where players are encouraged to be as outlandish as possible.
Everything done in the game can earn you Sparks. For every Spark earned, a new item or object to use is unlocked. Sparks also unlock new levels and new challenges. There are hundreds of Sparks to collect in the game and therefore hundreds of game objects/decorative objects the player can earn as they play.
Create also enables players to develop their own set of challenges from scratch, customizing everything from look and feel, to goals and level creation. The vast sets of customization tools that have been developed allow ANYONE to be creative.
The final element of Create is the ability to share – everything from individual creations, challenge solutions and any challenges that have been developed. Friends can download and “remix” solutions and set challenges for other players to download and complete. This option will be available on the PC, PlayStation3 and Xbox 360, and makes the gameplay experience truly social.
Developed by EA Bright Light Studio, Create is now available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 (featuring PlayStationMove compatibility), Wii, and Windows PC.
