  • Dev Explains Why Infamous: Second Son Is Not Running At 60 FPS on PS4: "Compromise On Particle Effects"

    Sucker Punch's upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive title, Infamous: Second Son will run at glorious 1080p but 30 FPS resolution. Nate Fox, Creative Director of inFamous: Second Son explained to our friend at Sixthaxis, what all things the game would have lost if development team would have gone for 60 FPS instead of 30 FPS.

    Infamous: Second Son"I wouldn't want to compromise any of the particle effects, as I think that's what makes Delsin's powers look alive and real… and you can't sacrifice any of that" said Nate, suggesting these higher FPS would have caused harm to these particle effects.

    "Cruising around town and using those abilities is the chief joy of the game, so that's not going to be it, and we're certainly not going to cut down on the details in the world."

    Later on Nate asked Sixthaxis: "What would you expect would go away in a game? Resolution seems like the obvious thing."

    T o which he received the reply: "how they might have to reduce the people on the streets."

    "You need people on the streets, or you don't feel like the hero, unless you're saving people, you're just some crazy super killer." Nate ended the conversation.

    Sixthaxis has promised to published the full interview soon.

  • Sony Compares Infamous: Second Son Gameplay With Previous Infamous Games, Explain Differences

    Sony's Social Media Manager Sid Shuman recently made a comparison between gameplay element of Infamous: Second Son with that of previous two infamous games and also detailed what exactly are the differences.

    Infamous: Second SonIn a recent Blogpost, Sid Shuman stated that development team polished and refined various elements of first two infamous game and incorporated them in Infamous Second Son.

    Furthermore, the PS4 title seems more accessible as the controls feels more like a third-person shooter.

    "If you’re a fan of like a ‘Crackdown,’ I think this game is one you want on your radar. This definitely takes the stuff that ‘inFamous’ does well but it was just polished and refined. It was really accessible, the controls work really well. Little bit of a shooter feel, like a third-person shooter feel, but you obviously don’t have a gun. You’re using neon and smoke but it just meant that you can just immediately hop in and it was just very fluid."

    Sid then went on to talked about differences between projectile attacks, he revealed that in first two infamous game, players have to aim down the sights, but now in Infamous: Second Son they are allow to fire from the hip and this makes Delsin Rowe more versatile in combat and traversal.

    "They kind of like open the floodgates for all these powers. In the other games you have to sort of aim down the sights, so to speak, to really shoot. In this game, you can essentially fire from the hip. You are just much more versatile I think in terms of combatant and the ability to traverse. So I was really, really digging that."

    Infamous: Second Son was initially thought to be a launch title of PS4, but Sucker Punch at PS4 All Access event announced that Infamous: Second Son will launch on March 21, 2014.
