June 13, 2010 Written by Christopher Gordon-Douglas

When inFamous was released in 2009, it was met with high critical acclaim with some calling it one of the best PlayStation 3 games to ever be released. Among those who critiqued the game, several said that the presentation of Empire City was a significant factor in the success of the game – continuing to say the parkour gameplay was well done and avoided a “frustration-fest” that other recent game have brought about.

In details published by Eurogamer, they detail what’s to come from the upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive, inFamous 2. Developer Sucker Punch is aiming for a “more emotional, more personal, more physical, more visceral” sequel, according to game director Nate Fox. The game starts off where the original left off, with Cole taking on a new enemy named The Beast which arrives in the ruins of Empire City. Sucker Punch have also included new powers such as the ionic vortex, which creates a tornado that can even be used to take down helicopters. Cole may also get to master non-electric superpowers, although electricity remains the focus.

With Sony’s E3 press conference due on Tuesday it will be exciting to see what inFamous 2 has to offer for fans of the first, also during Sony’s E3 conference they are expected to showcase the likes of Killzone 3, Gran Turismo 5, and Motorstorm Apocalypse.
