It was just a matter of time, with the game in the hands of quite a few gamers, and being streamed in several places, it was inevitable that someone finally managed to get to the point of obtaining an unannounced power, and it was just as inevitable for the information to end up on NeoGAF. It’s the downside of the revolutionary social features of the PS4 (and of the Xbox One).

Massively anticipated games pretty much always break the street date somewhere. With the previous generation video capture equipment was costly and rare, and most of those that purchased it used it for professional reasons. As a consequence, they were also those with the best interest in not breaking embargos.

Now video streaming is accessible to everyone, and the probability that a copy released in advance will end up in the hands of someone very willing to eat a ban to stream its gameplay is nearly 100%.

That said, this time Sucker Punch went above and beyond the call of duty and creativity, finding a power that not many could imagine, and let alone envision. I am surprised myself, and I’m sure you’ll be as well, which is why you probably shouldn’t go beyond this point, and save the thrill of discovery for yourself.

Since the information is out there, and there’s no way to hide it again, we’ll give you a way to see it, but again, the choice is in your hands. If you really can’t hold back your curiosity, click here.

Otherwise just know that the power is that awesome, and that unexpected. You will definitely enjoy it on March 21st.

WARNING: We put the power behind a spoiler wall for a reason, and we ask you to respect those that don’t want to read it. Any comment to this article (or other articles) spoiling the name of the power or giving any information about its nature will be ruthlessly canceled and met with a permanent ban. Zero tolerance. You’ve been warned.
