"Nearly all men can stand adversity, if you want to test a man's character give him power." -- Abraham Lincoln

Rating: ESRB Teen, PEGI 16+

Released on Blu-ray Disc: OUT NOW


STORY

Empire City was a run of the mill metropolis, until one day a massive explosion rips through six square blocks of its bustling downtown real-estate, seemingly leveling everything and everyone in its path. Yet after the dust had cleared, at the center of the blast crater is a lone man, Cole. He is in a coma, but has survived the event and neither he nor the world will ever be the same.

An everyday guy doing his best to make ends meet, Cole had been a bike messenger. Just before the blast he had been sent to ground zero to deliver a package. In the aftermath of the catastrophe, he awakes to find that somehow he has gained strange electrical powers. Empire City is in shambles though. Riots have erupted, breeding chaos and emboldening powerful criminal gangs hungry for power and profit. In the panic that follows the city is quarantined from the mainland, and television broadcasts packed with damning security camera footage link Cole to the scene of the explosion. Cole is now a wanted man, but his extraordinary electricity-based powers and perhaps a semblance of responsibility for the well-being of Empire City are growing. Who is really responsible for the blast though? As an evolving mystery unfolds, Cole must learn how to wield his newfound powers as he searches for the real culprits behind the blast in an attempt to rescue Empire City from complete anarchy.

SOUNDTRACK

Created by popular underground electronic musician Amon Tobin, and composers Jim Dooley, Mel Wesson, JD Mayer and electric cellist Martin Tillman to encapsulate the gritty and decimated nature of Empire City. The contributing musicians threw out all conventional standards of traditional music production, turning instead to real-life objects and materials found in urban environments such as trashcan lids and water jugs - bungie cords were stretched across a concert bass drum and strummed, wire brushes were beat on a suspended tuba and shakers were constructed of broken glass.


CHARACTERS

"I am a mystery to myself… What made me who I am?"
COLE: Cole's transformation from urban slacker to super-human may bring him power, but it also forces him to confront difficult moral questions. As he watches his hometown unravel in the aftermath of the explosion, he finds himself torn between competing factions, some of which do not have Empire City's best interests in mind. Will he prove to be the city's deliverance – or its downfall?

ZEKE: Cole's best friend, Zeke has a taste for conspiracy theories and a deep distrust of the government. As chaos envelopes Empire City, Zeke comes to believe that it's every man for himself, and that the only way out of this mess is for everyone to get super-powers.

TRISH: Cole's girlfriend is smart, beautiful and loving – but even her fierce loyalty cannot survive the tragedies of Empire City. After losing her sister in the blast that gives Cole his powers, she's heartbroken. Blaming Cole for the death of her sister, Trish spends her time doing what she can to help the people still trapped within Empire City.

MOYA: An FBI agent, Moya tasks Cole with finding a device called the Ray Sphere and locating her missing husband, a fellow FBI agent named John. If Cole helps Moya, she will clear his name and get him out of the city.

REAPERS: Before the blast, the Reapers were a scattered group of drug dealers and street thugs. Now, with no law enforcement policing this vulnerable city, the Reapers have grouped together to take control. As a highly organized and lethally armed criminal syndicate, they are intent on spreading chaos throughout Empire City. Like Cole, some of those Reapers were exposed to the blast and have developed unique powers of their own.

DUST MEN: Prior to the blast, the Warren was home to Empire City's homeless population. After the blast, those homeless people were organized into a group called the Dust Men. Because of their lack of social status before the blast, the Dust Men are hellbent on getting "theirs" by any means necessary, even if that means the wholesale slaughter of innocent civilians.
The Dust Men, imbued with a variety of super powers and led by a mysterious and extremely powerful figure, sow havoc throughout the Warren. In addition, under the orders of their leader, the Dust Men are using slave labor to construct a massive tower that looms over the entire borough. The purpose of the tower is unknown.
FIRST SONS: A mysterious and centuries-old organization, the First Sons, fled to America in the 17th century to avoid persecution as witches and warlocks. Once in America, the First Sons continued their research into telekinesis, channeling, and other electric-based abilities. With the arrival of Richard Tate in 1892, the First Sons started merging Edison-era technology into their research, in the hope of augmenting their mentalist abilities.
The First Sons control the Historic District of Empire City and use their devastating technology to destroy anyone that challenges them.
DALLAS: Dallas, known to the scared citizens of Empire City as the Voice of Survival, began a pirate television broadcast after the quarantine was imposed. Alternating between broadcasting helpful information and propaganda aimed at undermining Cole, Dallas is a constant presence in the city.

POWERS

Cole is a living human dynamo, drawing electrical energy from the city's grid and channeling it outwards in diverse ways. He recharges his powers by directly tapping into the power grid via street lights, downed cables, car batteries, etc. But Cole is not omnipotent.

Empire City's infrastructure is crumbling and blackouts are common. If Cole strays into an area where power has been lost, his abilities dry up – and his vulnerability skyrockets.

Cole's powers include:
  • Lightning Bolt – Let fly with high voltage bolts, wounding or killing enemies, destroying objects or powering up machines.
  • Shockwave – Create a wave of high-impact energy that throws cars into the air, or slams enemies off of rooftops.
  • Bio Leech – Overpower an enemy, then use this attack to suck the electrical energy from the neurons in their brain.
  • Pulse Heal – Heal the wounded with a short burst of electrical energy applied direct to an injured person's chest from Cole's hands.
  • Contact Powers – A trio of powers that let Cole empower civilians to help him in battle.
  • Shock Grenade – An explosive ball of electrical energy that explodes with impressive force, damaging everything caught in its blast.
  • Lightning Storm – Take advantage of charged particles in the air and summon a colossal lightning strike.
  • Precision – An advanced ability that lets Cole briefly slow down time, zoom in on an enemy, and blast them with a super-charged lightning burst.
  • Arc Restraint – A non-violent way of dealing with villains, this ability uses electricity to bind an enemy's hands and feet together and pin them to the ground.
  • Thunder Drop – Leap from the top of a high building and hit the ground extra hard, creating an electric shockwave that sends people and objects flying.
KARMA

One of the most important aspects of inFamous is its Karma System. Depending on Cole's actions, he consciously shifts into either a Good or Evil Karmic State, and this is more than a superficial change. Nearly every aspect of the game, from the way pedestrians react to Cole, to the powers he can use and upgrade, to Cole's appearance, and even the story, is impacted by Cole's Karma.

By focusing on either Good or Evil Karma, Cole's body actually changes in not only appearance, but also in how it manifests and manipulates electricity. If Cole has Good Karma, his powers are more electron-based; however, if he's Evil, his powers are more positron-based. This results in wildly different upgrades for his powers.

FEATURES
  • Be a Hero: Take on the role of Cole, an everyday guy and urban explorer, who develops a wide range of electricity-based powers. Learn how to control Cole's evolving powers in an attempt to save Empire City and its people.
  • Super Powers: Unleash a wide of range of electricity-based super powers that evolve and grow based on the decisions you make during the course of the game. Play as an evil character, and the available power upgrades reflect your sadistic streak. On the flipside, playing as a good character unlocks good upgrades. Your actions dictate your gameplay experience.
  • Karma System: Choose to be as good or evil as you want to be with a six-level karma system that monitors moment-to-moment actions, allowing players to see how Cole is perceived by the people of Empire City. Starting in neutral position, players can perform good deeds and rise to Guardian, Champion and Hero ranks, or they can perform unkind acts and lower their ranks to Thug, Outlaw and Infamous.
  • Karma Moments: Discover the direct consequences of your actions with over 15 pivotal points in the story where you will be forced to make a choice and then deal with the end result.
  • Urban Exploration: As an experienced urban explorer, Cole is capable of traversing nearly any surface, whether it's the face of a skyscraper or a dilapidated tenement building. Explore Empire City in a way that no one else can, and use the city to open up a wide array of offensive and defensive combat options.
  • Epic Battles: Experience what it is like to be a true hero, taking responsibility for every action, as players battle against powerful, iconic villains.
  • Open Dynamic World: Coupling rich powers with a reactive environment and population, experience complete freedom to explore a deep, open interactive city. With over 100 missions spanning three massive islands, players will be challenged to decide if they choose to save or destroy Empire City.
  • Organic City Ecology: Watch the citizens and city react and evolve depending on players' actions. Events will unfold based on the role players take in them, creating broader reactions in the city's people and environment.
  • Graphic Novel Storytelling: Journey with Cole as he discovers what it means to be a modern day super hero. A dynamic story arc is unveiled as players progress through the game, told through a combination of graphic novel cutscenes and comic book animation.

Finally starting to get some information.

Gamespot inFAMOUS Q&A: Good Versus Evil

Quote:
GS: What's it been like working on the PlayStation 3 for the first time?

BF: For us, the most exciting part of the PS3 has been the cell processor, the SPUs specifically. In our highest density scenes right now, we are currently using about 30 percent of the SPUs' capabilities--with the SPUs doing lots of heavy lifting for us on rendering, visibility, particle systems, skinning, animation blending, and so on...this with scores of pedestrians, cars, fires, etc., all going on. And the best part? We've not made any significant attempts to even optimize the SPU code. I think it's reasonable to guess we could put 10 times as much stuff on the SPUs and still make our frame budgets. It's really pretty amazing.

I've given the first post a bit of a once-over in anticipation for this promising looking open-world game. Can't wait to see how much its improved over the E3'07 trailer.

Superheroes eh? Gotta love it. It's a time tested subject, but it so underused, unlike almost every War-Sim FPS these days (notice the world Almost)

I wonder how far apart InFamous will hit from Prototype?


Both sound pretty similar.

This game looks way cool.

Who are you to deny greatness? If you would deny it to yourself, you would deny it to the entire world. And we will not be denied.

Summary by Kintaro on the NeoGAF forums:

Quote:
Originally Posted by Kintaro

- "Infamous begins with a serene, panoramic skyview view of Empire City on the title screen, with the words "press start flashing". ..once you push start, a massive explosion rips through the heart of the city. Six city blocks are consumed by flame...in the center, a man named Dylan staggers to his feet."
- Dylan doesn't know how he got his powers and starts out apathetic. He then becomes invest in the city...or you can choose not to be at all.
- Dylan can run up rooftops, scrambles across building archtecture, and can seek cover in unlikely nooks and crannies.
- Sucker Punch striving for simple controls to do not so simple things
- Empire City has 3 islands
- After the explosion, the city falls into chaos. A plague makes the govt. quarentine the city. Gangs are formed.
- Dylan's abilities evolve throughout the game
- One fight saw Dylan and his friend Zeke against a bunch of guard. A couple of choices include zapping the mobs and flinging them off the bridge, or using your electricity on the environment (i.e. power generators that may be nearby) to create explosions.
- Sucker Punch says "The hero's powers and te storyline are in support of the gameplay."
- Dylan cannot use firearms since his powers are "always on" (meaning he would set off the gunpowder in bullets). The powers can complicate your actions within the world.
- There will be other "villians" with their own powers that come into play. As well as other normal enemies with powers.
- - Infamous isn't structured like other open world games with a marker on the mini map for your next mission. The team's goal is to create a world where events unfold naturally.
- For example, you're on your way to disarm a bomb, but you notice a woman in the street bleeding and screaming. Time is ticking. What do you do? Your actions affect the world at large. Hence "Infamous".
- Karma system keeps track of your actions ( I assume without showing you? Not sure). Your actions affect the actions of the citizens of the city. They may fight with you or ignore you or even help fight against you. Karma also factors into how your abilities develop.
Finally something more to chew on!

Don't know if there's any screenshots in the mag. Wouldn't be surprised if a new trailer was kept back for E3.

edit: I'm interested to see how Sucker Punch with their platforming experience go about crafting the controls and character moves in a game like this.

Animated GIF of awesome, from the olde E3 2007 trailer:



Yeah, I can see how that would be a problem handling firearms.
