Games that have choices revolving around morality sometimes will demand a second playthrough so that gamers can experience the outcomes of their decisions had they gone a different route. Infamous: Second Son, the third iteration in the Infamous franchise, also seems to be shaping up to be this type of game.
Infamous: Second Son‘s Director, Nate Fox, explained in a recent interview with VG247 that the develoeprs have done their, “damnedest to make it fun in both directions, but in my opinion you’ve got to play the game twice to really experience inFamous: Second Son. I know from watching people play the game, that most of them play first as a good guy because we’ve been conditioned by society not to speed and help old ladies cross the street.” Even though the complete experience can be gleaned from two playthroughs, each playthrough is essentially fulfilling in itself. He further added that, “they play through again, and they’re the most evil sons-of-guns you’ve ever met. They enjoy being evil, but they’ve got to get the good guy experience out of their systems before they allow themselves to be the jerks they are in their heart.”
Infamous: Second Son is being developed by Sucker Punch Productions and will be published by SCE for the PlayStation 4 on March 21st, 2014.
