Although an official Sony site suggested that inFamous: Second Son would feature a multiplayer component, brand development director Ken Schramm confirmed that this was not true when interviewed during the Taiwanese Taipei Game Show.
That’s not to say it won’t include online features – he also teased that Delsin will meet partners during the story, which points to something akin to Dark Souls’ online system, but there’s no traditional multiplayer in the game.
A few more details were shared in the Q&A, including that the game’s open structure meaning that quests can be completed outside of the main story without time limits, though that choosing between good or evil will lose certain situations. That doesn’t sound too different from how the first two games worked.
While they remain tight-lipped about new superpowers, these will interact with the environment heavily, perhaps in similar ways to Cole’s electricity, but Delsin won’t be able to utilise multiple elements at the same time, with a meter restricting players from switching between these.
So, what do you think? Would you have enjoyed multiplayer, or was even the likes of inFamous 2’s user generated content too much for you?
