New inFamous info at NYC Press Event

Nate Fox's Avatar + Posted by Nate Fox on Feb 11, 2009 // Game Director, Sucker Punch Productions

Hey there, World Wide Web-Heads. I’d thought I’d fill you in on what’s been happening on inFamous since my last post. In a word, “mega-creation-frenzy.” People in the studio have been pulling long hours to refine gameplay and polish the art. In other words, the coffee machine never sleeps. Which is great because last weekend in NYC we threw open the door to the press, letting a huge slew of folks get their hands on the game. I can’t wait to hear what people have to say about kicking ass in Empire City with electrical powers.

On top of the three missions we showcased in the Neon District, players will finally have a chance to see some of the dark, broken down streets of the Warren neighborhood. It’s a dangerous place ruled by the Dustmen gang. This squad of one-time homeless men now rule through the use of strong telekinetic powers. Clothed in bits of trash, they’re nearly invisible when hiding in the tangled alleys of the Warren. Strong in fight, their ranks are backed by huge superpowered comrades. Men outfitted in giant suits of torn metal and concrete, they crush police beneath their feet.

This past weekend players had a chance to fight these goliaths while defending the Empire City jail from the Dustmen siege. Walls will be smashed in, guard towers toppled and many thugs will get a lightening bolt to the face.

To help our hero Cole protect the jail, we’ve rolled out one of his new powers called Precision. Precision allows Cole to slow down time and zoom in on enemies. Perfect for hitting unsuspecting enemies at a distance. We’ll also be outfitting Cole with some upgrades to his superpowers. That’s right, as players go through the game their superpowers will continue to grow in strength taking their combat strategies in new directions.

You can tell it was an exciting weekend in New York. Keep your ear to the ground for more inFamous news coming soon.

The A.I. looks pretty lame. There appeared to be about 5 or 6 people attacking the BOSS simultaneously, but he only seemed to focus on you.

Saw the preview on GameSpot a couple days ago. The game looks amazing. I’m definitely looking forward to this game. One of my most anticipated for 2009.

Infamous looks freakin awesome. I usually don’t like free roam games because Im more into story driven games, but this looks like it is very story driven which I think is amazing with the comic art style. keep up the good work Sucker Punch.

Asolutely fantastic-looking game!

I have never been disappointed in an Sucker Punch game, so I have no doubt in my mind that this will be… super! (*giggle*)

But give us a release date window at least! D*mn it!

I have to agree with bravo9zero. Just using electricity over and over will get boring. I don’t care how many variations he has on it. I want to like this game, but I’m not convinced that his lack of variety in powers is a good thing.
