Sucker Punch is at it again with the third and newest in the inFAMOUS series – Second Son. Announced this past February, they released the following gameplay video during E3. Check it out:
They stuck with the third-person view for the open-world. When I’ve talked with others about this game, there’s always a discussion if this would be more fun as first-person. But I think it comes down to showing all the great effects – if it was FPS, you’d miss a lot of the surrounding graphic enhancements. It’s a big part of the game, and it’s pretty fun to watch.
The story is set about 7 years after the original inFAMOUS, and this time it’s in an Seattle-like city (The CheatCodes.com offices are just outside Seattle, so that makes this a bit more interesting for us.) I don’t know, but I’m guessing it won’t actually be called “Seattle”, but some other name (like New York was Empire City, and New Marias was New Orleans). The main character is Delsin Rowe (what kind of name is that?) and he gets his “bio-terrorist” power after saving a bus-load of kids from a fiery death. His super power: he can control fire and turn into smoke. That doesn’t sound so cool, until you watch the video – then you realize what a cool power it is.
Watch the video and let us know what you think!
