inFamous: Second Son Trailer Featured Gameplay Footage

Following this week’s surprise reveal, Sucker Punch has coughed up some more information about its smoky superhero spin-off, inFamous: Second Son. Reacting to a discussion on Twitter, the Bellevue-based developer explained that the title’s debut trailer was constructed primarily from gameplay footage.

“What did you think most of [the footage] was?” the studio said in response to a fan’s request for some in-game action. “We just used [a] different camera to make it more cinematic.”

inFamous: Second Son is set seven years after the conclusion of inFamous 2, and follows the foggy footsteps of Delsin Rowe, a 24-year-old tearaway armed with smoke-based powers. With the events of Cole MacGrath’s narrative still raw, those suspected of “bio-terrorism” are immediately being apprehended by the government – but the protagonist is not so keen on playing ball.

You can check out the first trailer in the space below. Let us know if you’re excited for the next entry in Sucker Punch’s supercharged series in the comments section.

Very interesting. It'll be fascinating to see how this and KZ:SF look when they launch.

@Sanquine I'll have it soon! I'm confident it'll be the best game I've played on Vita.

So hyped for this!! Looks like it will be the best Infamous game and hopefully they will nail the story.

#Sanquine Hopefully the game will drop in my mail tomorrow :)

I think the smoke powers are going to add some really interesting traversal mechanics. I loved how in Festival of Blood you could transform into a group of bats and basically fly around the city. I could imagine them doing something similar here.

@get2sammyb Yeah thats a great point. Im thiking we may see the return of Moya from inFamous 1, She could be the red haired lady in trailer. If that is what the game will look like then great! Im really hoping for a flushed out, large, GTA style open world wiht more varied side missions.

@Sanquine I'm on my second play through and still loving it.

Back on topic, it makes sense that it was in game. I first realized that it was an InFamous game when he started to take guys down and his animations were identical to Coles.

@get2sammyb Graphically, the game looked great and a huge step up from anything on the PS3. But his fighting looked very much like InFamous, which is far from a bad thing.

I had a feeling that they were showing in-game footage, and hopefully it looks that good when it hits shelves. Smoke powers could open up some very interesting and fun ways to move around and fight.

Thats exactly what I was thinking. I really like how creative Sucker Punch has been with the powers in this series, I have no clue how smoke powers could work but I can't wait to find out what they come up with.
