This Is How You're Supposed to Play inFAMOUS: Second Son on PS4

Posted by Sammy Barker

Dual shock

It’s never easy to wrap your head around a game in a busy showfloor environment. As such, the response to a slew of inFAMOUS: Second Son videos firing out of events such as CES has been tepid at best. Fortunately, we predict that the feedback to this developer helmed demo will be a bit more positive. After all, the game looks absolutely spectacular.

The five minute off-screen clip – captured at the Taipei Game Show – focuses on the same drizzly sequence that we’ve seen before, but this time highlights much more variety in protagonist Delsin Rowe’s moveset. It’s still early in the campaign so we suspect that you’ll unlock plenty more abilities throughout the game, but some of the traversal looks absolutely fantastic regardless.

For starters, one sequence sees the flamboyantly dressed hero using his smoke powers to shoot up a drain pipe and boost through the air, before slamming down on his foes. Later on, the character employs his recently announced neon skills to sprint up a wall and gain a vantage point over his pursuers. It seems that the latter option will augment you with greater precision than its fiery counterpart.

While the developer’s keeping the star’s other powers under wraps for now, this clip should surely put to bed any complaints about the title’s combat looking dull. And even if you never felt that way, we still recommend sitting through the video for a glimpse at some of the outrageous particle effects on display. Are you hyped yet?

This will be my reason to buy a PS4. Couldn't justify it previously, but when this drops, I will be buying one!

Was never a fan of these power-trip action games. I'll just keep on waiting for FF15. ^_^

That's more like it. I hope the opportunity to fight endless battles like this one is present throughout, though. I hated how enemies disappeared (often for good) in the first two games.

I love that Delsin doesn't grab onto a single ledge in any of these videos...that's the one thing that makes me HATE the other two games, the fact that I can't do anything without Cole grabbing and attaching himself to every little object in sight. Can't wait! >:0
