It would be cool if you can switch between this dude and Cole ala Batman and Catwoman in Arkham City.

Posted by brighteye

Thank god it's not Cole again, but that means there's no Zeke :(

Why would you assume that ? Suckerpunch must know how popular that dude is , right ?

Favourite moment of Infamous 2: Zeke and Cole just chillin in front of a western and a couple of brews...

@needforswede: His death in the good ending wasn't exactly conclusive. The lightning hitting his grave in the ending was clearly done to leave enough wiggle room for bringing him back if they want to.

I'm glad they're just going with a new protagonist personally, but I'll be surprised if Cole doesn't show up at some point.

Exactly. It's only been 7 years so it's not that far from inFamous 2.

Looks good to me. I'll be keeping an eye on this.

What dark future? It is taking place in present time, sonys event to be more precise if you look at the right corner of the surveillance camera footage you see its says 20 of february 2013.

I thought it was great that, after an hour or so of people going on about the online connectivity of the console and ease of sharing information, the guy introducing this trailer took to the stage and starting spouting off some big brother dystopian shit.

But whatevs, I'm sure the game will be fine.

The setting seems interesting, but I'm not sure about all the intro...

As a major comic fan I root for the underdog X-men, but no less than Hank McCoy (ie a founding X-man) has said that people have EVERY right to be afraid of a neighbor that was basically a walking atom bomb. A person that could kill them and their families on a whim with no possibility of resistance. It's why he's been an Avenger at times and not strictly engaged in what we as comic fans know is a noble endeavor.

In real life, I would ABSOLUTELY support mutant registration. If you need to be registered to legally drive, you damn well ought to be if you can blow up a building by clenching your fists real dramatically.

EDIT - That said I'm all for more inFamous, though it doesn't look like we are straying too far from the Cole model which is sorta disappointing.

Who played through inFamous 2 and thought that the next game could possibly feature Cole as the protagonist again?

With Cole, they couldn't go the prequel route, as before the first game he had no powers.

I don't think much time passed in the story between 1 and 2 to yield a full story.

And I had assumed that, while the series was built around moral dilemmas and choosing between "good" and "evil" actions which altered your appearance, abilities and ultimately the game's ending, inFamous 2's story picked up where the "good" ending of the last left off.

Yet both of 2's endings quite firmly rule out Cole as the possible protagonist. If you were "good," Cole dies. If you were "evil," Cole essentially does what an inFamous villain would want to do...if I remember correctly his actions save himself and every conduit on Earth, but kills off every non-super-powered individual. I guess it would be kinda cool if they took this ending and made Cole the main antagonist, I thought that they might do that but found it more likely that they just started fresh with a new character. And I don't think anyone thought that 2 would end the series, most game franchises seem to stay well after they've worn out their welcome. The only way they could bring back Cole I guess would be to do a non-canon thing like they did with that Festival of Blood DLC, but to do it as a full-fledged sequel wouldn't make sense.

Wow, I just spent way too much time thinking about the inFamous storyline. The stories in these games aren't really that important, they're fun to play which is all that should matter.

Posted by Undeadpool

I guess this answers all those "How can they possibly choose a 'canonical' ending" questions. I'm interested in this.

Brad is the one that initially sold me on Infamous so if he is sold then I am sold.

The main dude seems way more evil than the DUP

Posted by Giantstalker

For once I'd like to play as the totalitarian future-cops, is that so much to ask for? Goddamn insurgencies.

Posted by haggis

I can't help but chuckle a bit at the headline. "Dark and Nasty Future." What game doesn't these days? Every game is a paranoia-infused dystopia. It's getting dull. This ground has been tilled a few thousand times. Can we have something different, please? Devs seem to be caught in a rut.

This actually interest me more than the other two. Only infamous I could get into was the Halloween downloadable one. The shorter length suited how much I dislike the tone and characters of the first two games

I have played both and finished the first one, but yeah while I understand some of the design choices given the nature of their respective plots, it really was weirdly empty and sterile for how grimy everything was. And I never really cared about gravelly Cole.

Posted by PokeIkzai

Consider me hyped. I think a new protagonist is really what the series needed. From that little clip I like the voice over work better than Cole's but I know there's hardly anything to go over at this point.

I don't know, this protagonist seems way too edgy for a conformist like myself.

This is pretty much my only misgiving of what (little) we seen so far. I don't have any attachment with cole per say, I just fucking hate 'edgy' protagonists like this (see DMC)

Posted by Cold_Wolven

Looks really good and I can't wait to see some actual game play to match those visuals.

I like Infamous

Posted by AgentZigzag

Seeing too many sequels to not that great franchises I have no desire to play... like Infamous. Guess that's just modern high-end games though huh?

I kinda had my fill with the first two inFamouses, but I can be convinced otherwise as well.

I think the fact they went with a new protagonist with dramatically different powers will really help. As much as I loved 1 & 2, 2 was a bit stale.

Posted by Rodin

Honestly while I was impressed with the while show, this trailer though made me want to buy a ps4. I hope this turns out great.

doesn't seem to be the popular opinion but another infamous game is enough in its own for me to get a ps4 i loved those games. really dont get the prototype comparison

I am good with more InFamous since it's got a new protagonist and setting.

Edited by ScruffMoney

This whole presentation was great! From the super serious, out of left field, conspiracy theory dude to the game trailer itself. This trailer made me forget how much I disliked the second half of inFamous 2.

Edited by kennybaese

I'm also kind of scratching my head as to how the ending of inFamous 2 would allow for another inFamous game, and then I remembered that they really wanted a video game version of a comic book and shrugged it off. Besides, I was always going to be down for more inFamous.

Doesn't both endings make this sequel kinda hard to make? Cause depending on the ending either everyone with the special genes are dead or all normal humans die due to the disease. I'm very curious how they'll write around this.

I thought Cole survived in both of the endings. The evil one obviously has him survive, but the good ending features a lightning bolt striking and opening Cole's casket. I figured that was blatant sequel bait, and seeing as Cole is featured in PlayStation All-Stars, it would seem weird to suddenly get rid of him.

Also, the subtitle for the new game is "Second Son", a clear reference to the main gang in the first game, the "First Sons", which was established by Kessler for the specific purpose of turning Cole into a more powerful superhero (and a superhero in general I suppose).

I'm assuming that the Second Son refers to the main character being the second attempt at creating a "better Cole". Perhaps this time by making an actual son and not a time-traveling, transmigrated Cole.

I guess that's possible. At the time all we saw was a lightning bolt in the form of a question mark, with could mean a lot of things. It would be lame though for those that liked the good ending, if it turned out that all other super-powered humans died except him.

Glad its a new Protagonist. Bringing back Cole would feel really lame and kind of insulting based on what happens in the good ending of 2.

Doesn't the good ending of 2 kill off everybody with super powers though, not even the people who are aware they have powers? So shouldn't this new game still be lame and insulting because of that? They could always get around that by having this set before the end of the second game though. And don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on the game at all. I loved the first two, so I'm on board, no matter what excuse they use for a third.

The ending for the bad side had everyone with the potential for super powers gaining them.

The actual game won't have cinematic camera angles. It will probably be almost indistinguishable from the last game when you see it being played.

I actually was working and watched this live from the street that blew up there and today was the date. Freaky! Seattle hasnt blown up lol

Yeah, it's pretty cool to see a game set in Seattle made by people who actually live here in Washington. Should be interesting, hopefully it's more than just the hate for "the man" and the Space Needle. It'd be really cool to get to see a place like Pike Place Market. And The Troll has to be in there.

It'd be neat to be able to find your way around the city based on knowing what actual Seattle is like, ahah.

Looks sharp. Really liking this new leap in particle effects. That stuff looks really great.

I hope it's more fun than Infamous 2. Based on the way this dude's tearing shit up, seems like it'll at least be different.

I felt the complete opposite. I actually thought a lot of stuff about the original Infamous was kinda boring and uninteresting, but I Infamous 2 felt like a notable improvement all around. (Not perfect, but definitely better than the first.)

More InFamous is always welcome! I just hope Sucker Punch has learn't some valuable lessons about making characters who aren't big pieces of shit.

When the guy was giving the opening address, I seriously thought he was going to tear up.

And I seriously thought that I, myself, was going to tear up.
