Takes full advantage of the new hardware
inFAMOUS: Second Son may just be the most intriguing PlayStation 4 exclusive set to release over the coming months. Its stunning visuals, fascinating morality system, and deliciously angsty protagonist are giving us frissons of excitement. It's also about superheroes, which is always a good thing. And it seems that our excitement is justified, as developer Sucker Punch has been hard at work attempting to craft a game that truly makes the next-gen machine sing.
At a press event in Taiwan, brand development big-wig Ken Schramm was on hand to answer media questions in regards to the upcoming open world title, and his comments were quite illuminating. In particular, he stressed that the superhero sim would only be possible on the shiny new box. The ability to implement intricate lighting effects and advanced artificial intelligence were given as examples of complex systems that simply wouldn't have been feasible on the PlayStation 3. This declaration, along with a short gameplay demo, was met with raucous cheers and thunderous applause, and rightly so, as the release looks absolutely terrific.
Are you a sucker for the inFAMOUS franchise? Do you think that its action gameplay is lightning in a bottle? Perform some pathetic parkour in the comments section below.
