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!

What’s with the new voice for Cole? He sounds like a geeky teenager with zits! Couldn’t you have found someone in the caliber of Nathan Drake?

I’m still sold to these guys, but I really think they should release UGC content to improve on the levels that people play. Just so things don’t get boring in the next year or two because there should be something new around the corner.

I also think that the Hero Edition should be released in the UK.

+ RafiTsantsiper on April 12th, 2011 at 4:15 am said:

With all the respect , I really think we’ve seen enough of this game. Don’t get me wrong , I LOVE this game and I finished the first game 3 times and I plan on pre-ordering the hero edition but I want to be surprised when I play this game :(

Goin’ on a Media Blackout for this game, I already know it’s gonna be amazing and I don’t want any spoilers :).

Had to stop watching about half way through.

You guys really need to learn to not spoil major things. :/

Anyway, looks totally awesome. xD

+ Link01 on April 12th, 2011 at 8:14 am said:

I seriously hope I get into the beta today. I signed up day one. Anyways, looks amazing guys. Love the addition of challenging enemies versus the repetition of the first one. The only thing that worries me, is the fact that the evil electricity kind of looks like fire at first. I think this is off because you guys actually do have a fire power. I’d just tune the colors though, shouldn’t be a hard fix right?

MY GOD! You can clearly see the cinmatic presentation is much improved on the level of Uncharted series! The visuals and everything is almost as big of a leap as a next-gen :\

1 question: Custom soundtrack?

I am seriously in love with this game….
June 7th cant come fast enough!!!!!!!!!

+ that-acmilan-guy on April 12th, 2011 at 11:51 am said:

The best thing about infamous 2 thanks to user generate content is that its an open world game and you access those missions from the world without any menus. This makes for a living breathing world.

I’m loving the new location so much,
this New Orleans-like setting is absolutely brilliant!
We’re tired of all kinds of New York rip-offs, glad to see that some developers have taken notice and exploring new (and gorgeus) locales!
Sucker Punch!

as a musician myself…. i LOVE the music soundtracks so far. dark, intrigued, violent but well-implemented, love the string on the half part of the video with the good Cole show up.

Definitely a soundtrack that I WILL buy for sure :oD

With this and Uncharted 3, my year is complete. Already have the Hero Edition pre-ordered through Amazon for release date delivery. Can’t wait? That’s an understatement!

I can’t wait for this game to come out!!!!!! I think I would be okay with SP never moving to a new franchise, lol… just keep finding ways to make this one more awesome with each iteration!!!

Honestly guys/gals… I grew up on the original nintendo. And you all have succeeded in making the type of game I used to fantasize about when I was a kid.

The user generated content actually looks like it may be the coolest implementation of it I have seen this gen too! Beta invite, yes please!
