Cole Strikes With Fire and Ice in Latest InFamous 2 Trailer

Cole Strikes With Fire and Ice in Latest InFamous 2 Trailer

InFamous 2 will add fire and ice-based powers to main character Cole's repertoire.

Sucker Punch gave fans a slight hint that the Cole in InFamous 2 would be able to wield more than electricity, and now that idea has been 100% confirmed. The latest "Quest for Power" trailer reveals that Cole will not only be able to control electricity in the sequel, but fire and ice as well.

The trailer features Cole talking to (mostly) trusted friend Zeke about how he's going to infiltrate an area to acquire new powers. While some of these expand on the electricity-only theme of InFamous, others take Cole into a whole new realm.

Cole is able to quickly generate an ice stalagmite at his feet to propel himself through the air, and also generate a field of these stalagmites to take down enemies. In the spectrum of fire, Cole can dive into enemies like a phoenix to create an explosion, or perform a "fire suck" move that appears to disable enemy weaponry. Cole has new electricity-based powers too, with the trailer showing Cole hurling cars and throwing around electricity like a track star to cause massive damage.

The end of the trailer features Cole and Zeke saying: "Half as long, twice as bright." This quote appeared in Blade Runner in reference to a candle whose life will end more quickly the brighter that it burns. If this exchange means anything, Cole may face a similar end by taking in so many new powers.

InFamous 2 is scheduled for release on the PlayStation 3 on June 7, 2011.

Looks good. I honestly wish I had a PS3 at this point. I mean, fire and ice are nothing new for video games, but in a free-running and combat game, that could be pretty interesting. It does alleviate the concerns about inFamous' protagonist being a one-trick pony, but I wonder how they'll explain it in the story.

And now, back to Prototype.

Cant wait, so many awesome games coming out I'm gonna have to pick carefully.

Dr Watson: What are Cole's new powers?
Sherlock Holmes: Elementary, my dear Watson

Huh, despite my love of the first game, this one was kind of under my radar as a "might buy".....That may have just changed. We'll see.

Holy shit, I haven't seen much on this game (then again I really haven't been looking) but damn that's cool. I gotta scrape together some cash, I've got a lot of games coming out that I want to buy and the list just keeps growing.

Had to be done.

This game will give me a reason to touch my PS3

Sounds like Zeke's voice actor has had lessons - colour me impressed.

Looking forward to this.

Cole has no chin.

Also, do want!

Animation looks alot better done than the first game.

Do want, do want much much...

Crap, based on just that little bit it looks like fire powers are evil and ice is good. I like fire. I also like playing good guys. Please don't make me choose.

Iceman. Power-Cole. My assault on the world begins now.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm, that's good InFamous!

Being an animation-nut, I absolutely love how they've revamped the character animations. If anyone remembers the original InFamous's ingame cutscenes, you know how much of an improvement this is.

Fucking hell, why do all the games I want have to come out so soon?

Damn!

Now thats what I've talking about.

inFamous is THE super-hero game.

Dak_N_Jaxter:
Damn!

Now thats what I've talking about.

inFamous is THE super-hero game.

Well, there is also Arkham City coming out this year as well, so it looks like we'll be getting two awesome superhero games this year. Damn, my wallet is crying thinking about how many great games are coming out this year, and I'm already low on funds...

kinda hoped they wouldn't succumb to the whole "you can do a whole lot more shit in Prototype" argument (largely cuz thats false, you really had the same skill just wrapped in different skins), and throw in extra powers, additional characters with powers maybe but eh.

i'll still pick this up either way.

Can't friggin wait for this game. Loved the first and this looks so awesome!

it's so pretty...

what do you mean two more months?!

but it's so pretty!

On the fence before this. Now, I am actually looking forward to it. I have played the fuck out of the 1st one and was one blast shard short. Sucker Punch trumped me and I will NOT LET THAT PASS! I WILL STOMP THIS GAME!

I heard that past decisions will affect your playthrough so I will have to start a new file. Darn the yellow rings. Also, I love the voices and the looks. They were right to change Cole's appearance.

It has been a while since I saw creativity work its way into super-powers in games. I thought I didn't want anything else besides electricity but ice actually looks good. 3rd ice shooting. Whoop.

If you still have the game, your last blast shard might be on the NE side of the Neon District, past a broken dock that goes out into just a bunch of pole sticking out of the water. That one was mine cause it was so out of the way; that or the one atop the pinnacle of the skyscraper right by the blast crater.

Thanks for the tip, Auron, but I already got both of these. It seems like Cole's sense is attuned to a specific height. That's why I am so upset. I got the hardest 2 out of the way and I am still one short!

yeah i had this problem myself. just take a map and do a Block by Block sweep of the city. if that fails then go nuts on the place.

I can't wait. That was the best game trailer I have seen in a LONG time.

I can't wait for this game. I played the first one through multiple times as both good and evil and still have my save files ready to import for this. DO WANT!

Actually, I'm kind of excited about getting the new powers, that one where he boost-jumps off a self-conjured stalagmite actually has some interesting possibilities, especially if combined with the glide or the charge-drop. Plus, the lightning tornado looks fun to use.

Bring it on!
