New inFamous 2 Details: New Marais, Amp, Fresh Skills
inFamous 2 is gonna be a blast. In fact, it'll be so much fun, we really want to fast-forward time so we can play it now.
But in the meantime, we'll just have to make do with more details. Sucker Punch's impending piece of action awesomeness made a big splash at GamesCom last week, and Kotaku learned more about Cole's new look and fresh location. If you didn't already know, inFamous 2 will take place in the bayou-like city of New Marais, which is why Cole sports a t-shirt and jeans; the leather he wore in the original would sorta be suffocating in that environment, right? Then there's that new melee weapon, which is called the Amp; we saw it on display in that explosive piece of gameplay we saw earlier. So in the sequel, there will be more of a mix of long-range and melee combat, as Cole can now juggle baddies in the air and lay the smackdown from a distance of two feet or two hundred feet. Personally, I like sniping, but whatever.There's also mention of one of Cole's new skills: the Kinetic Pulse.
Basically, you'll just be chucking very large objects at nasty enemies. It's sort of like Telekinesis on steroids and it's an example of one of Cole's new non-elemental powers. ...the more we know, the more excited we become.
