LittleBigPlanet 3 is receiving a grand makeover today with our brand-new Community UI that will make it easier than ever before to find exactly the type of content that you’re looking for and help you meet up with old and new friends alike for in-game activities!
Gone is the multi-planet structure that we had before and now everything is focused down to just a single planet view that magically morphs into each destination as you scroll through your Pod Computer menu.
Have no fear though! Nothing has disappeared and you can still find all of the previous functionality within each planet with just a quick tap of the X button.
So let’s take a look at the major changes of the new Community UI!
Play remains relatively unchanged and gives you access to the main Adventure and Popit Puzzles. You can also find any More Stories level kits that you have purchased here too and there’s also a brand-new feature tucked away here that will be coming to LittleBigPlanet 3 soon!
Are you feeling that creative buzz today? You can create away to your heart’s content under the new Create category that contains your Moon with all of your saved creations on it. You will also be able to decorate your Earth and Moon here for other players to see.
The full range of Tutorials are available here, should you wish to pick up a few pointers for your latest creations!
It has never been easier to find great levels to play in LittleBigPlanet and we have pulled a handful of great levels to the very top for instant viewing! With a simple tap of the L1/R1 Buttons, you can view the Level of the Day, top Recommended For You, Team Pick and Busiest levels; along with the most recently published creation.
Want to search a bit more in-depth? Just tap X on Community and you will be taken to the regular Community Menu that you’re already familiar with.
All About Me
All About Me is your little personalised corner of the Omniverse where you can customise your profile’s avatar and description.You can also read your profile comments and check out your ever-growing Pin collection with helpful hints on Pins that you are close to earning.
The Store contains all of the available Level Kits, Costumes and add-ons that have been released for LittleBigPlanet that can be purchased to continue your Sackboy or Sackgirl’s adventures or fill out their Popits with costumes and assets to create with.
My Friends and Dive In – new ways to join other players!
Want to join some other Sackfolk for some fun in LittleBigPlanet? All of your Online Friends can be discovered at the bottom of the screen and by tapping L1 and R1, you can flip through all of them and then choose to Join them or Invite them to your Pod. You can even visit their Planet to view their creations and online profile.
If you don’t have any Friends online, then you can find the Dive In button in place of them which can be selected to allow you to meet some new players and possible make some brand-new friends!
Clicking on My Friends will also allow you to all of your Friends and Hearted Players, even if they’re offline and you can additionally find the Dive In button here too, should you want to use it at any time that you already have friends online.
Recent Activity – new filters for finding content!
Under Recent Activity we have expanded the selection of Filters available for searching recent activities and content in LittleBigPlanet 3. With a tap of the right stick, you can pop out the new selection of Filters to allow you to customise your Recent Activity to show exactly the type of activities that you wish to see.
Best of all, your selected Filters will be saved between game sessions. So if you set it up just how you like it, you can leave and return later to find your Filter settings still configured to how you last left them! Making them just perfect for giving you a very personalised overview of the recent activities!
