inFAMOUS 2: The Beast is Coming

Nate Fox's Avatar + Posted by Nate Fox on May 24, 2011 // Game Director, Sucker Punch Productions

Here at Sucker Punch we’re tired. We’re whipped. Game development is a sprint. You run as hard as you can, then keep running. The problem is the goal line sometimes move mid-race. When you set out to make a game you sort of have an idea of what it’ll ultimately be… but that’s not what it ends up being. You only know what you’ve made once it’s done. Like you guys we experience the game, the real game, for the first time at the end of the road. And it’s exciting. It’s crazy to be playing the game and forget that you made it because you’re busy ducking an RPG rocket. You know that feeling you get when you actually dodge in your seat? Get that all the time. Cole and his friends have stopped being polygons and actors and have become real people. And it’s this reality that makes today’s post cool. Now that we’re so, so close to being done we can finally really talk about the “Big Bad” that pushes the whole story forward.

What’s the Beast, you ask? Like a meteor from outer space it’s a force of destruction too powerful for humanity to contain. At the end of inFamous, Cole MacGrath was given a vision that the Beast would arrive into the world and that he alone could stop it. The safety of our species was put on his shoulders. No pressure right? As you might imagine Cole would do anything in his power to get ready for the fight. He’s desperate to win, to save the lives of his friends and neighbors.

But at the start of inFamous 2 he fails. The Beast arrives and Cole isn’t strong enough. He’s forced to run south to New Marais and prepare for a second, final encounter while his home, Empire City, is swallowed in flames.

Have you ever failed at anything? Ever been dumped or fired or beat up? Ever tried your hardest and still lost? It’s sucks, right? Makes you feel hollowed out, weak. Like you don’t matter. Of course it’s exactly those moments that forge you into in a stronger person. I believe that we are defined by our failure more than our successes. Once you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and OVERCOME the thing that beat you, that’s when you really win. That’s when you’ve surpassed your past self. In inFAMOUS 2 you, help Cole get there. You guide him through New Marais; searching for new, stronger powers. Along the way you’ll meet potential allies who could help in your fight against the Beast. And you’ll need the help… the monster is moving down the coast, burning the landscape, getting stronger as it centers in on New Marais. Your back is against the wall, with only a few days to prepare for that second chance. Soon it’ll be time to overcome the things that have beaten you in the past. Are you up for it? After all, the Beast is Coming.

Thank You God for Sony and sucker punch and just the whole world!!!!!!!!!!!

But ya looks friggin awesome graphics and all!! Great Job!

@159 Probably not. Cole has only a few days until the beast comes to New Marias. If days actually went by in free roam, it wouldn’t make sense, considering the Beast would be there by now. From what I’ve seen, there’s a lot of night time in this game.

Man… after seeing this, I can’t imagine how powerful Cole will be once he faces the Beast again. O.O I wish I could get the Hero Edition for all that sweet stuff but I don’t have the money for it… Oh well… an epic game like this without the cool merchandise with it is better than nothing, right?

Loved inFAMOUS 1. I can’t believe it’s almost here! ^^ I CAN’T WAIT!!! THAT BEAST IS GOING DOWN!!!!!

I’ve been excited about this game since hearing of it’s development, but since actually paying attention to the games Karma System, I noticed how it  reinforces negative racial stereotypes, I still want to play it, but I have no intention of putting any money in Sucker Punches pockets this time around. Instead of buying new I’ll purchase used from amazon or  Gamestop.
