Watch 5 minutes of destruction in new inFamous: Second Son footage

New PS4 footage recorded off-screen at a recent press tour for the upcoming open-world adventure.

by

Taiwanese news site ETtoday has uploaded off-screen footage of upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive inFamous: Second Son to its YouTube channel (via VG247).

The footage, of a mission requiring players to take out an armoured vehicle, also shows a greater emphasis on destruction than in previous games in the series, with Delsin easily blasting guard outposts into clattering piles of rubble. Delsin then absorbs neon out some nearby lights, giving him access to a fresh suite of purple-tinted powers--a feature new to Second Son--and the ability to run up the sides of buildings.

Developer Sucker Punch says that the neon powers will offer a more precise way to play the game, whereas the smoke powers will be more suited to those with a less patient inclination.

The DualShock 4's touchpad is also shown, with players required to press the controller in certain areas to unlock doors and switch off a power source.

inFamous: Second Son will be released worldwide on March 21, 2014.

It looks good, but the effects look a bit 'animated' compared to the rest of the graphics, which look photo-realisitic.  It's a little off putting.  It's difficult to describe.  It's almost as though it's how the fire and lightning 'behave'.  Perhaps my issue is a physics issue?  I don't know.

'Cartoonish' effects didn't detract from games so much in previous gens when the graphics didn't have as much fidelity, but they seem more glaring the more realistic graphics get.  Perhaps this won't be an Infamous issue itself, but rather an unforeseen hurdle in general from the advances in GPU tech?

The game looks awesome, my only concern is the camera. It looked like it had issues keeping up with the action in certain areas. So it looked like you could get into fire fights then waste valuable time and life trying to adjust the camera to find out who's shooting at you.

I have a feeling this one isn't going to live up to the hype.

Woah Woah, wait a second, is the voice actor that plays the main character in this game also did the voice for Kanji in Persona 4? If it is, awesome, one more reason to buy the game, if it's not, I'm buying it anyway

Looking pretty boss. Deslin's a stupid name, but his powers are looking pretty awesome and the animation is looking pretty cool also. Looking forward to this game quite a bit.

Looking great so far. This better not bomb. It was why I got a PS4 first but then it was delayed to late March which bothered me alittle.

Is it just me or do the light and smoke powers seem kind of identitical??

I loved inFamous 1 and thought inFamous 2 was pretty good aswell (didn't like the city though). This game looks awesome! Can't wait.

I can't wait that game is one of the reasons I went with PS4 I loved inFAMOUS 1 and 2 and the Festival of Blood PSN game.

Just go look up IGN's off screen footage, it is much better IMO and doesn't have the annoying announcer guy.  Either way this game looks more and more amazing every time I watch some of it's footage.

I really liked the Cole character in Infamous 2, but this Deslin guy looks too much like Keanu Reeves.

Looks boring, if the game is good, they release it for Xbox One. Nobody will play that, a hipster with super-powers.

Could barely hear Delsin's one liners.

"No wait! I come in peace!" (While blasting a tower)

"Hey, you're suppose to be protecting them from me! (DUP shooting at crowds of people)

A must buy. This is the game I am waiting for. Two months nearly to wait. That is a long time.

Dont know why people think this game is going to be any good the mission is to destroy a bus with panels on it really inventive there and your enemies are call of duty AI. Also the combat is like playing spiderman but with fireballs instead of webs.

I dont see anything beautiful about it... not that the game isnt but that video doesnt show its beauty.

@Baconelite I really liked Infamous 2 as well, but the setting wasn't to my liking. It's just the whole New Orleans vibe. I don't like Jazz music and I hate Jumbalaya. I also don't care for horns in music.

@Baconelite Yeah I preferred Infamous 1 over 2. However, the smoke and neon powers sucks. Electricity was shown to be very creative in the previous games and that's what made it fun.

@saeculi_umbra Unlike IGN's footage though...this guy can actually play it. IGN's has him fumbling around getting shot for ages because he keeps trying to destroy the truck without getting rid of the enemies. It's a bit frustrating to watch.

@Diegoctba It will get a great review from GS since the main character is a hipster, just if character had full beard.

@Diegoctba if it were to come out on the XB1 (which it never will since Sucker Punch is is a Sony owned Dev) then it would be right at home considering the XB1 is a console for Hipsters.

@Diegoctba What? You know it's not coming for Xone, because it's developed by one of Sony owned studios and not because if the game is good or not?

@jttwister9 Which is basically just like the previous two Infamous titles and people liked them too.
