inFAMOUS 2 at Comic-Con

Edward Pun's Avatar + Posted by Edward Pun on Jul 21, 2010 // Senior Artist, Sucker Punch Productions

I’m the Senior Artist on inFAMOUS 2, responsible for doing storyboards and rendering all the line work for the 2D cut scenes, plus anything else I can help the art teams with. We are all busy working on InFAMOUS 2 but wanted let anyone who is going to SD Comic-Con know that we’ll be doing a special panel discussion this week!

It’s called “From Origin to Evolution: The Making of a Modern Day Superhero for the Videogame World,” and we’ll be discussing topics like how we made inFAMOUS, our comic inspirations, and of course some insights into what we hope to accomplish for inFAMOUS 2.  We’ll be showing some cool artwork, plus one of the first 2D cutscenes from the new game. Greg Miller from IGN fame will be moderating the discussion and you’ll be able to ask us any burning questions you might have. Here’s the summary:

inFAMOUS 2 Panel & Q&A
When: Thursday, July 22nd, 6:30pm – 7:30pm
Where: Room 7AB

On top of all that, all panel attendees will score a sweet InFAMOUS 2 shirt!

inFamous 2 Comic-Con Shirt

For those who can’t make it to Comic-Con this year, have no fear, check out our first behind the scenes video leading up to our panel discussion to see how much comics have been a factor in the creation of Cole and the InFAMOUS universe.

Still don’t like the new cole and voice actor, though I am sure it’s too late for my dislikes.
At any rate the shirt looks awesome and I hope Comic-Con goes well!

I really liked the original game. Im pretty psyched about the second one. You know it would be really cool if you could carry over the save from the first game to the second. More games need to do that. Also, how about giving out some of the shirts over the blog? Im no where near Comic-con.

We’ve been hering rumors of MP, is this true?

+ spoonerismz on July 21st, 2010 at 8:50 am said:

New Cole is blah… Old Cole had total diversity to him. New guy just seems like a generic super hero mixed with Nathan Drake.

Other than that, this game is a midnight premiere at the local Gamestop for me. Melee looks great, new city look like a lot of fun, and the ice powers make me want it even more now!

+ ZION009 on July 21st, 2010 at 8:55 am said:

I agree with dymlos2 (Carry Over System) porting over your save file weather you were bad or good would be very cool, and will we see that traitor Zeke! back?

i really enjoyed infamous. my only complaint with the first game was that you couldnt start a new game with all your unlock powers. after having an addictive blast my first playthrough i didnt want to go thru unlocking everything again. but good game and i hope yall keep the ‘lightning from above’ attack in the sequel, that attack is awesome..

Wish I was at Comic Con :(
As for inFAMOUS 2, that was my game of E3 by a mile. Nothing else impressed me the way inFAMOUS did.

+ Globox_82 on July 21st, 2010 at 8:59 am said:

Infamous 2 is so going to own. Probably GOTY material, but will it face Uncharted 3 in 2011? I know i am getting both :P but Infamous 2 is probably my priority, loved first game. Hopefully more people buy second one, at least 3-4 million you guys deserve it.

BTW for us in Europe, can we somehow buy those T shirts online or somehow? Thanks.

+ BlooodyCow on July 21st, 2010 at 9:00 am said:

Will you guys be giving away those T-Shirts on the blog? I would really like one because I am such a huge fan of inFAMOUS

+ ZION009 on July 21st, 2010 at 9:03 am said:

While playing through the first game I noticed the civilians committing suicide by means of jumping off the bridge (I even have a video recorded of them doing this ….funny stuff)and also not much of a reaction with hit by incoming fire other then running away of course we will see an improvement in the A.I but to what extent?

+ dragonmagician on July 21st, 2010 at 9:05 am said:

BEYOND!

Nice T-shirt. Wish I can get one as well.

I like how you guys don’t want to give anything to us east coast people. We like to be clothed too.

+ ZION009 on July 21st, 2010 at 9:10 am said:

About the item collecting like the “blast shards” in the first game if you guys are doing this for the sequel, please make an onscreen maker like say “If I collect a certain amount of blast shards the last few are marked on the map” They did this on (Spider-man web of shadows) and I thought this is a great idea for Infamous2


22

+ Zee_009 on July 21st, 2010 at 9:10 am said:

@dymlos2: that is actually an amazing idea. I ended off with Infamous as my karma level. I would love to see what that would do to Infamous 2.

T_____T……………. :”( i was stoked when i heard there was a sequel…..when i saw what you guys did with cole……………..you guys completely crushed my dreams for this game.

+ ZION009 on July 21st, 2010 at 9:19 am said:

@ZION009 DUDE i dont mind the hair, its the Face and voice that bug the HELL outta me!!!!


29

+ ZION009 on July 21st, 2010 at 9:36 am said:

Hey it cool man its just that people are ragging on these guys I for one think that the change is not that bad, but as far as the voice goes the orginal guy needs to repraise his role as Cole…(haha That ryhmes)


30

+ nem0905 on July 21st, 2010 at 9:40 am said:

@ZION009 yeah well i know, you should see the forums!!!! theres a “Official New Cole Complaint Desk” lol thats like 25 pages long! XD


31

+ ZION009 on July 21st, 2010 at 9:46 am said:

So sad how people complain about a game that others work so hard on,But on a lighter note… C’on SUCKER-PUNCH!!! Free I-2 shirts please!!!


32

+ Kchow23 on July 21st, 2010 at 9:54 am said:

awesome video… hope there are more like these in Infamous 2 like what God of War does… also I like the shirt but sucks I can’t go to Comic Con


33

+ nem0905 on July 21st, 2010 at 9:54 am said:

@ZION009 well dude, people liked the first game, and sucker punch completely changed the way Cole looks. Ppl grew to like cole as he is, and chaging him so drastically, its gonna make ppl upset.

+ izach24 on July 21st, 2010 at 9:55 am said:

I want one of those shirts so bad! They look freakin’ awesome!

Karma system is returning, I saw the meter for it in the background and I want that shirt wait no I want two


36

+ OttoT on July 21st, 2010 at 10:00 am said:

I like the video but the music makes it terrible depressing and takes away from the exitement for the game.
Just my 2 cents.


37

+ HazeBlaze on July 21st, 2010 at 10:09 am said:

Great video guys! You all are making my most anticipated game of 2011, I can’t wait!!! The artwork shown throughout the vid was absolutely beautiful. Keep up the good work!


38

+ HazeBlaze on July 21st, 2010 at 10:13 am said:

Sorry neme0905, most of us are WAAAY past Cole’s redesign now. You’ll just have to suck it up and move on. The truth is, I like his new design better… it’s just weird playing a different looking character. Either way, I don’t care… the sequel just looks WAY too awesome to get hung up on this one little issue.

+ Santos21 on July 21st, 2010 at 10:19 am said:

sweet video…cant wait to play this game…loved the first infamous.

+ nem0905 on July 21st, 2010 at 10:23 am said:

@HazeBlaze you sure of that???? uhmmm if you go to the sucker punch forums, im sure you will see that im not the only one. So stop pretending like im one of the only ones who HATE new cole…i mean Drake-wannabe. So please before you talk visit the forums to get a lil more info on why N-sync cole sucks!

+ texas_ride on July 21st, 2010 at 10:25 am said:

looking good …. how about an inFAMOUS 2 theme up on the psn store to hold us over?


42

+ kak1992knk1990 on July 21st, 2010 at 10:29 am said:

I believe that vertical split screen would be awesome for this game because it can provide not only the players with the ability to play the game along side a friend but it opens up more opportunity for building new characters for this amazing superhero story and can also open up more opportunities to go deeper in depth with the INFAMOUS hero story . Therefore MP shouldn’t destroy the games singleplayer experience but can make the story more intresting just as RE5 was and Borderlands were.

+ Solid-Snake-Eyes on July 21st, 2010 at 10:34 am said:

I’m buying this game, but I hope it comes out before too long.


44

+ SpiritThief on July 21st, 2010 at 10:35 am said:

NO MOVE AND NO MP!

I promise I’ll pre order again if you meet those requirements.

July 11th, i heard.

+ TheRealAlpha2 on July 21st, 2010 at 10:40 am said:

The biggest issue seems to be how much people think he looks differnt. But think of it this way, comic book super hero get redesigned all the time. New artists come along, new stories are written with new designs are needed. You think Wolverine looks EXCATLY like he did when he first appeared? or even Spiderman? What really matters is the spirit and history of the character. Cole Disided to let his hair grow out a little, big deal, at least now it adds something to his design. Giving him a blad head in the first game seemed like an easy way out since everyone at the time was complaining about doing decent looking hair in videogames.

Hey this video is really cool, you guys should post all of them in here, they are nice. Go Sucker Punch! Your games are awesome.

TheRealAlpha2,

Think of Red Dead Redemption for instance, the game is really hugh an there is even online MP. They should of just put freeroam MP splitscreen because the game is so hugh and i would love to challenge my brother without having to purchase two ps3 jus to play online with or against eachother, anyways im sure lots of others may agree that watching someone play a story that sounds exciting like INFAMOUS2 would be more enjoyable to play along instead of waiting for the first player yo beat it…
