Sucker Punch Has “Big Ambitions” For New PS4 Exclusive, Aims for “Jaw-Dropping Character Visuals”

inFAMOUS: Second Son was probably the first game that made people really appreciate graphics of the current generation of consoles, but Sucker Punch, that is currently known to be working on a new PS4 exclusive, wants to push the envelope even further

I'd be ok with either to be honest. Tho, from what we've heard so far, I'm inclined to think it's just a new infamous.

BitbyDeath851d ago (Edited 851d ago )

As long as inFamous isn't just more of the same then i'm good for a new one. They need to start going into a lot more detail though like GTA games IMO.

Abriael851d ago

@BitbyDeath: ultimately it's a very different game from GTA, the detail is in the superpowers and abilities.

Ultimately, how many good superhero games are there, besides infamous?

"Ultimately, how many good superhero games are there, besides infamous?"

Batman... and the LEGO superhero franchise :-)

Abriael851d ago

@lelo2play: that's one. I'd say there's plenty space for more.

(besides, Batman is a VERY different kind of superhero).

pivotplease851d ago

Very different though in that bat man is like a stealth/brawler and infamous focuses on explosive superpowers. I always considered bat man more of a hero than a "super" hero because he's far more grounded.

BitbyDeath851d ago

I just mean in terms of detail.
You don't need to drive cars or anything but adding a bit more life to the civilians or adding in some wildlife or even let you get more destructive with your powers by blowing up buildings/fauna when you become god-like.

There is a lot more they can delve into that won't take away from the game.

Still to this day Killzone Shadow fall is the game that made me appreciate the graphical power the ps4 has. The strange thing about killzone is some levels look far greater than others, its like playing two different games in the campaign.

Infamous has excellent character models but overall not as good as killzone.

bouzebbal851d ago

inFamous has a lot of potential, i don't mind another episode.

mikeslemonade851d ago

Infamous Second Son already had jaw dropping visuals when it came out.

The stupid gamer community gave it the wrong score, an 80 meta. It's another example in the list of wrong meta scores.

UltraNova851d ago (Edited 851d ago )

Stsonic,

I'm inclined to agree with you but I would be wrong too, even though I too, thought KZSF was looking better when I first played IFSS. Why? Because one is a tight FPS and the other an open world game.

With that said, for Infamous to even get close to KZSF's visuals is undeniable proof that Sucker Punch have what it takes steal the show from Guerrilla! If Guerrilla doesn't kill it with Horizon that is....

SmielmaN850d ago

I would be perfectly fine with another infamous. All those games are awesome IMO.

subtenko850d ago

Welcome back Sucker Punch.

Maybe Sucker Punch should worry about making a better game (with better gameplay and better story), instead of worrying about great graphics. Their last game Infamous Second Son, wasn't that great.

As for their new game, hope it's a new IP. Let Infamous rest for awhile.

"But it's one of the most fun games in years."
Infamous Second Son is repetitive as hell with a lame story. If you find that fun, then good for you.

WeAreLegion851d ago

But it's one of the most fun games in years.

itisallaboutps851d ago

I agree with you. I got it off redbox for a week. Payed 7 bucks finished it and didn't regret it.the game looked great, but not enough customization or story

jznrpg851d ago

For a first year game it was pretty good , could have been more but I enjoyed it.

-Foxtrot851d ago

I have to agree in a small way

inFAMOUS Second Son is a good game but compared to the past games it's inferior EXCEPT for visuals/graphics. The other games just have that certain spark Second Son didn't have, not top mention it felt a little rushed.

They are an open world studio, graphics isn't something they should have to focus on the most. I felt that was Second Sons problem.

Crimzon851d ago

Yeah, honestly I'd rather hear about jaw-dropping gameplay than jaw-dropping visuals. Graphics alone just don't cut it.

Dangiroud851d ago

Go play with your lego games

remixx116851d ago

Well its not like they aren't great devs, all the sly cooper games and the first 2 infamous games are indicators I guess. Second son I felt was a "we did the best we could with the time we had" kinda thing.

Give them time and we wilk be surprised.

Testfire851d ago

I haven't played second son, but I hope one day devs will start saying that they're working on ground breaking gameplay rather than visuals. I've had enough of the focus on graphics.

Flipgeneral851d ago

Agreed..

Besides the visuals, the game felt rushed. Void of any variety, character and substance. What a forgettable experience that was!

I hope the gameplay is better than Infamous Second Son.

pivotplease851d ago (Edited 851d ago )

I thoroughly enjoyed the gameplay and the neon powers in particular felt really well balanced and were amazingly fun (this is why I loved first light). What needs work is the content and the variety of content. It felt like there should be more side stuff, more character customization, and less repetition of the same tasks. It would also be cool if they focused on the exploration aspect more by giving you entry to areas if you use the right super power kind of like Zelda.

ThanatosDMC850d ago

Yeah, im comparing Infamous SS to Infamous 2. Infamous 2 was way more fun and gave you lots of powers. Comet powers was my favorite.

Against Infamous 2, Infamous SS's gameplay was extremely limited.

tradeitems851d ago

I'm hoping it plays good. Doesn't care much about the graphics. Weren't PS4 players got disappointed with various games such as The Order 1885 lately?

Gaming journalists should stop hyping about graphics and focus more on how a fun a game plays.

Dangiroud851d ago

Order 1886 was a good game, when u compare it with broken games like assassin creed or cod who no matter how many bugs or how little gameplay changes they make year in year out,they still get get 8 or 9 out of 10
LMAO

pivotplease851d ago

Man AC is so boring. Bought and played one of the games. It was the most repetitive and mundane experience ever. The combat is just terrible and is so easy and dependent on counters that you never feel a sense of tension. The entire game is just an automated formula.

News4Noobs-851d ago

Nowadays all we hear is "jaw-dropping visuals" but what about jaw dropping gameplay/story -_-
that's the main focus of developers now and that's why we get so many dissapointments.

_-EDMIX-_851d ago (Edited 851d ago )

.....why can't we have both?

Soooo because they didn't tell you about the gameplay, it must be a movie with nothing to do?

Have you considered they are merely just telling you about 1 aspect?

and I don't know what you mean by "focus" the folks making the game look good are not the same ones actually making the gameplay....

No matter how real the game looks, the programmers, directors etc still are in charge of the game play lol.

The game isn't being made by 1 person that can't do 2 things at once you know. A team makes games, not just 1 or 2 dudes (not that can't happen, just that its not typical in terms of game design)

Lamboomington851d ago

For a moment I thought this was the same RPG that Guerilla games was working on, then I realized it was sucker punch. I guess it could be another Infamous.

If that's the case I just want them to bring back electricity somehow.
