Cole has been designed redesigned, and then redesigned some more – but the final result makes for what looks to be one damn exciting game. I got a kick out of inFamous when it first came out, and after seeing this inFamous 2 trailer, I’m ready to dive back in.
inFAMOUS 2 opens with the reluctant hero pitted against his greatest challenge yet, a dark entity known only as the Beast. Unable to face this seemingly-invincible enemy, Cole travels to the Southern city of New Marais, with his ever present buddy Zeke, to find the solution to defeating the Beast, with the fate of humanity’s future resting on his shoulders. He faces obstacles throughout his journey as he strives to reach the full potential of his powers to become humanity’s savior or its next greatest threat.
Featuring an evolved Karma system and a host of new features and gameplay mechanics, inFAMOUS 2 has players choosing to ally themselves with Agent Lucy Kuo, a recently activated conduit with ice powers who seemingly leads Cole down the righteous path, or fiery New Marais native Nix who has a penchant for destruction, but offers more than meets the eye. Players encounter vastly divergent experiences and completely different endings, depending on which relationship they choose to nurture.
The new narrative introduces battles in locations with creatures of never-before-seen size and scale and takes urban exploration to new heights, as Cole travels through New Marais with improved parkour skills. With the electrifying Amp, a new melee weapon, and an arsenal of long and medium range combat powers, players will feel empowered like never before while taking on the most menacing opponents ever presented in the series.
We’re hoping to get our hands on this title soon, so in an ideal world we’ll have our review up in a little bit! Keep checking back for updates.
