E3 2013: “Infamous: Second Son” First Impressions – I’m Buying a PS4 For This

Nice chain, bro.

Nice chain, bro.

Unfortunately I never got into the Infamous series of games since I went the Xbox 360 route. I watched friends playing it and thought it looked fun but I stuck with Prototype on my Xbox 360. After watching the gameplay demo today I can say that this sealed the deal for me getting a PS4.

The open-world game takes place in Seattle years after Infamous 2 and you play as Delsin Rowe. Delsin accidentally discovers his power after trying to pull someone from a burning car, the ability to absorb others powers. With his new powers he is out to take down the Department of Unified Protection who has locked down Seattle so the events of the first two games don’t happen again.

We were told that Delsin would throughout the game change his powers by absorbing news ones. We weren’t told how many times or what the other powers were. We see Deslin with smoke powers, the ability to sprint in the form of smoke, short lived flying (looks like Iron Man), shooting with fireballs and some kind of morphing bomb takedown.

In the demo Delsin encounters a DUP agent with some kind of special powers that he needs to figure out how to take down.

In the demo that Johnny saw, people were going completely wild cheering on when Delsin did something amazing. At my demo people were a little bit more relaxed but that doesn’t take away from the fact that the game looks amazing and I can’t wait to play it.
