inFamous: Second Son video shows off Delsin's bad side
Like previous games in the inFamous series, Second Son will give you the option to use your powers for good or evil. Up until now though, most of what we've seen of Delsin has been good -- so Sucker Punch has decided to give us a look at the more ruthless side of Delsin. In a brand new gameplay video, Sucker Punch shows off the potential power of Delsin as played by someone who opted for a more evil path.
"For players who choose the ruthless path, combat is fast, explosive, and lethal. Restraint is unnecessary. The faster you can obliterate your enemies, the sooner you’ll gain access to your strongest powers, and it doesn’t matter who gets hurt along the way," Sucker Punch senior game designer Darren Bridges explains. "For those who choose to be heroic, combat is about accuracy and precision. Explosions are great, but civilian casualties are not. Your rewards will come from helping citizens and from using your abilities to capture enemies alive. The standards are higher, but for those who want to be a hero, that’s exactly the point."
"The path you choose will affect every aspect of the game, from character relationships to powers development to the story itself."
In this particular playthrough, Delsin has convinced Fetch Walker, a Conduit with the power to control neon, to help him take out a group of anti-Conduit protesters. See how Delsin's evil influence convinces Fetch to exterminate the "haters."
Pretty amazing stuff, if you ask me. I still can't get over the reflections of the puddles and the way the lights from the cars shine. InFamous: Second Son is due out on March 21 exclusively for PlayStation 4.
