inFAMOUS 2: Behemoth, UGC Detailed in Sucker Punch Videos

Brian Fleming's Avatar + Posted by Brian Fleming on Apr 11, 2011 // Sucker Punch Productions

Have you ever put on a wedding or a huge party? A bunch of us are in working this weekend, but it’s not just the normal bug fixing, polishing, and optimizing. Today we’re hanging art, arranging some furniture, and (shudder) cleaning up our offices. All of this is being done in preparation for the 60+ media members who will be flying up to Seattle on Monday for our “Media Day” event for inFAMOUS 2. So you can think of this as our once-every-two-years chance to spruce up the place, and put on a little bit of a show.

So here’s my Virtual Media Day for you guys, a blow-by-blow breakdown of what we’re showing.

In the morning we’ll be hosting all the international press members on a tour of our studios in Bellevue. We will hold out some hope for good weather so we can do some interviews and photos out on the deck. We’ll turn the visitors loose on the bustling metropolis that is Bellevue, Washington and start prepping for our afternoon show. South of the Mariners stadium, we’ll be hosting an evening event showcasing three inFAMOUS 2 highlights:

First, a battle with the monster we call The Behemoth. If you remember way way back to our E3 demos last year, we hinted at the existence of this monster…Well, here’s your chance to see him! As far as inFAMOUS 2 goes, he’s one of the most important enemies we’ve built. We showed an early version of him at our very first greenlight meetings back in December 2009. Seems like a long time ago!

Second, we’ll show a mission called Forced Conduits. If you’ve been following along closely, you know that Conduits are people who are candidates to become super powered. But in this mission, we find out that someone has figured out how to somehow force ordinary people to become conduits… An interesting development in the narrative of inFAMOUS 2!

Finally, we’ll show a handful of missions created in our User-Generated Content tools. I got the chance to play through these missions over the weekend, and the exciting thing for me was the diversity of gameplay being built by the QA staff helping us get ready for our inFAMOUS 2 Limited Beta (on Tuesday!!!). We’ll be showing nicely created combat scenarios, a very cleverly told story mission, and a lyrical reference to an arcade game gone by. A good set overall!

It’s a pretty exciting week, I hope you all get the chance to check out a little more about these new missions! Wish us luck with the media, and I’ll be back again soon with another update!

Wow. I can’t wait! I’m really looking forward to this. That battle looked epic! Hopefully I get a UGC beta invite. Either way, I’m getting the inFamous 2 Hero Edition on day 1.

This Game looks like what Uncharted 2 did to Uncharted 1. Massive improvements on what was already an awesome game!

Question: are we going to have the option in this sequel to choose to play as either good or evil Cole as the first one had offered us?

+ Ejsponge61 on April 11th, 2011 at 8:25 pm said:

The first game was my first, and only, platinum trophy, so the sequel is a must buy for me. No one can touch what this game does with its gameplay, allowing all those powers to be accessed while keeping the movement and flow of combat fluid. I can’t wait to get my collectors edition on June 7th, but hopefully I’ll be in the beta before then.


12

+ Ejsponge61 on April 11th, 2011 at 8:27 pm said:

@Zinacef Yes, kinda. Now you choose to be either a hero of order or a hero of chaos. You still get different powers dependent on each, so ice for order and fire for chaos.

I can’t wait to take the week off for this game and savor it the way an aristocratic 18th century vampire savors a poor virgin peasant girl.

SERIOUSLY.

As a 27 year old man, I haven’t been so excited that my heart races for a video game in a long time but this one does it. Despite all the other great releases coming this year, this one has me the most excited I’ve been for years. I hope I get accepted into the story builder beta because just looks absolutely epic.

The perfect mix of super hero games with action and aventure that I’ve grown to love in Uncharted games and the creation and community experience that makes LittleBigPlanet one of the favorite titles on the system. I have to think, inFamous 2 is a serious sleeper pick for game of the year if it offers even half of what you guys are saying it will offer.

Thanks for the info…now beta please :P

i am so super excited for this game. the first was great and sweet story but i hope it is not as hard. i didn’t likethe fact that it too like 20 hits to bring down an enemy. kinda like uncharted and uncharted 2 the first one took to long to kill enemies and second seem more realistic. but i really like the user generated content idea and hope beyond all hope that i get into the limited beta to test that out. may we all be inFAMOUS

DAYUM!
This is a HUGE step up from the original. I cannot wait to try out every single awesome piece about this game! It’s almost like everything has been improved; storytelling, close-quarters combat, abilities, content, etc.

Great job sucker punch!

+ RBlaze1988 on April 11th, 2011 at 9:12 pm said:

Holy crap…you guys are astonishingly incredible. This game looks amazing. Sucker punch and Sony will be pretty godly with this release. Can’t wait to pick this one up.

+ BossmanCCrowder1 on April 11th, 2011 at 9:16 pm said:

This is incredible. Every video I watch of this game amazes me more and more.


31

+ twistedfloyd on April 11th, 2011 at 9:17 pm said:

Just wow. SP you guys have outdone yourselves 10 fold. Now to get those last two trophies in inFamous 1 so I can get my first platinum. No guide either. But, man, this could be GOTY if other developers lag behind.


32

+ LordRaoh on April 11th, 2011 at 9:22 pm said:

Just absolutely brilliant.

Can’t wait to get my hands on this game.

Truly great work, I applaud you.

Outstanding work SuckerPunch! The jump from iF1 to iF2 is incredible, really! Definately getting this


34

+ Veridis_Quo on April 11th, 2011 at 9:37 pm said:

Just about everything is improved upon from the first game. I am in complete awe of how incredible the game as turned out to be. This is one of my most anticipated games of the year! Not only does the single player bring forth an awesome boss, but I feel like I’ll spend most of my time with the custom missions! The only downside to this preview is that it makes waiting that much harder to do! ARGH!


35

+ nsnsmj on April 11th, 2011 at 9:46 pm said:

Looks so awesome! I didn’t play the first, but I really want this one….that last part of the User-Generated content video looked like one of the levels in Uncharted 2. The one where Chloe shoots the RPG from the back of a truck.


36

+ TallCrowe on April 11th, 2011 at 9:50 pm said:

Yes I will get this when it comes out. I am sold. Sucker Punch you are some talented game designers.


37

+ TM1619 on April 11th, 2011 at 9:54 pm said:

I don’t know how this game is possible. They took the first game and improved upon 100-fold – no, 1000-fold! Steady frame-rate, huge-ass monsters, impressive graphics, motion-capture cutscenes, new game mechanics, interesting narrative, endless possibilities with the UGC… This HAS to be game of the year, or at least a very strong contender. I am going to purchase the HERO edition and I will NOT regret it.

Bring on inFAMOUS 2 – the game of the century – and bring on the new info coming out along the week!


38

+ wallywallas on April 11th, 2011 at 9:58 pm said:

Only thing preventing me from preordering this game is preorder bonuses. Will Gamestop, Bestbuy or Amazon offer anything different?

Or should I just go ahead and do it already?


39

+ TM1619 on April 11th, 2011 at 10:06 pm said:

Anyone notice the Militia guy in the second video say “Hey, when do we get pie?”
Lol, Sucker Punch, you made me laugh. Can’t wait for inFAMOUS 2!

+ Butters360 on April 11th, 2011 at 10:06 pm said:

I’m all out of adjectives to describe how great inFAMOUS 2 looks.

+ bowman151 on April 11th, 2011 at 10:10 pm said:

And I thought the Devourer you guys showed off a while back was large. I think Behemoth might not be up to scale with that big fella. Anyways, game looks even more awesome with each video and bit of information and I’ll enjoy my time spent playing during my several sick days around June 7th.

+ XenoNative on April 11th, 2011 at 10:13 pm said:

as pumped as i am about this game i didnt need to see all of that. From this point on media blackout of everything infamous2.

PS- i love you sucker punch. day 1 purchase.

This looks amazing. Here’s hoping for some luck getting into the beta, inFamous is probably my favorite new IP this gen.
