E3 2010: InFamous 2 trailer looks sweet in the flesh

We caught our first look at Sucker Punch's InFamous 2 during Sony's E3 presentation yesterday. But while it's all well and good seeing it projected onto a massive screen, you want to see it pixel for pixel, right? Well, now you can - it's right here, right now.

Looks like the sequel will give us a more atmospheric city as our playground of destruction. Then there's the fact Cole's hands are looking extra zappy these days, which will allow him to charge items and use them as weapons - and summon an 'ionic vortex' like this:

Above: Yep, that looks fun. Nothing beats an ionic vortex, right kids?

How excited are you about InFamous 2? Let us know in the comments.

    this game is going to be really good
  • ScruffMoney - June 17, 2010 1:03 a.m.

    The game looks great but the character of Cole now looks like a major extreme sports douche bag. It's like they tried to make Nathan Drake with super powers but, instead, made some extreme biker douche with super powers. The fact he's carrying around a bike part doesn't help either.

    I hope, this game is better than the first. The original had potential, but had some problems, for me at least, and Zeke, dear God what an annoying guy.

    meh. I figure it is a younger cole. I mean, (spoiler!) the last one dealt with himself as the villian after traveling through time (end spoiler!) so i figure its just another time in his life. I dunno. The first one's trailer wasnt very good, but the game was. So well see.

    did anyone catch the possible hint to ice powers? When he says "Some shit never changes.... Well, maybe it does," it pictures him standing around the ice. new ice powers hopefully.

    What's the xbox 360 version of this game called again? It's on the tip of my tounge...
  • quicksilver_502 - June 16, 2010 10:05 p.m.

    i find the variety of things cole can do with electricity hilarious:chain people, throw bombs, rez people, fly and now create hurricanes...electric hurricanes.
  • duffmanshredder - June 16, 2010 10 p.m.

    It seems like they're taking a cue from naughty dog and making a Nathan Drake type character. I'm kind of impartial to the redesign, but he may end up being more likeable
  • animeman - June 16, 2010 9:54 p.m.

    i think the new Cole looks badass. He dose sound wierd though but the acual wepon that he gets and the new frost powers look awsome. Also I dont think the grafics look that bad.
  • EnragedTortoise1 - June 16, 2010 9 p.m.

    Am I the only one who doesn't care about the character redesign?
  • Wolverine08 - June 16, 2010 8:20 p.m.

    @TheWebSwinger Couldn't agree more with you,looks to me like the things that were wrong with the original are still, uh, wrong. Graphics and voices respectively. I don't think new Cole looks right either, now he just looks like an electrified yob, over a superhero. My other concern is if they're trying to make him funny, PLEASE DON'T MAKE HIM A COMEDY CHARACTER, THAT'S WHAT ZEKE'S FOR!!!!
  • CoD4Kamikazi - June 16, 2010 7:32 p.m.

    Here's the lowdown: 1. This is Cole, he was just re-designed and re-casted 2. This is a new city. 3. He has new powers, like Induction Launch (launches Cole off the ground), and the Ionic Vortex (pictured). 4. Zeke is back.(I only have an X-Box 360, but I guess this guy was part of the story.) 5. The boss fights promise to be more epic. Thank you, Game Informer.
  • TheWebSwinger - June 16, 2010 7:22 p.m.

    I looove Infamous 1, but this trailer is pretty unimpressive... the graphics are sorta weak (again), Cole looks like a Backstreet Boy, and they went with a whole new city as opposed to refining the content from the first game? Shmeh, still interested in this one, regardless.
  • FunkSoulBrother - June 16, 2010 6:56 p.m.

    Yes of course I'm excited! How can I not be!?
  • AnonymouZ - June 16, 2010 6:46 p.m.

    is that really cole? what's he doing outside of HIS city?
  • shadowless92 - June 16, 2010 6:17 p.m.

    hmmm true he doesnt look or sound like him... plus this guy looks younger that that wrinkly bald bastard
  • Xplosive59 - June 16, 2010 6:11 p.m.

    Are we sure it is Cole in this game and not some totally different character because he looks and sounds nothing like him?
  • StoneDreadnaught - June 16, 2010 5:48 p.m.

    At least his voice isn't so obviously evil, gravly and 'bad-ass' in this one.
  • shadowless92 - June 16, 2010 5:45 p.m.

    yes it deffinantly doesnt look like him but it is him its amazing what a bit of hair can do xP also i noticed icicles on the ground and he said something about change my guess is he gains some sort of frost power or he meets someone who does also i live in britain and that looks like the sort of archetecture we have round these parts also he has a union jack (sort of) on his jeans in white but wow this game makes me wana go back on my ps3 so badly
  • Conman93 - June 16, 2010 5:44 p.m.

    This looks really good. At the moment the new Cole seems kind of generic, but i'm sure he'll grow on us. Also the inclusion of massive monster bosses always= WIN!
