inFAMOUS: Second Son’s “Mind Boggling” Unannounced Power is Something Everyone Uses Every Day

on March 11, 2014 12:41 PM

A few days ago inFAMOUS Brand Development Director Ken Schramm teased an “absolutely mind boggling” power part of a yet unannounced power set that will be included in inFAMOUS: Second Son.

Today,  during a preview event I had a chance to have a chat with Schramm, and asked him more about that mysterious power set.

Turns out that it really must be something hard to guess, because he mentioned that during all the interviews he ever had so far about the game, no journalist (me included, and I tried for a while) ever managed to name the power or the power set it belongs to.

But there’s more, as Schramm gave me a further interesting and brain-teasing detail: the power set is something almost everyone uses every day.

What could be so common and at the same time so hard to guess? And “mind-boggling” to boot?

My personal guess is radio waves, but that is just my own speculation. Everyone uses them every day with their cellphones, after all. Feel free to throw your own guesses in the comments below.

One thing is for sure: we’ll soon know, as inFAMOUS: Second Son is only ten days away from its release in North America and Europe. To help you with the wait, you can also expect to read more coverage and interviews from today’s event very soon.
