The Beast is coming

We’ve been following supernatural blast-‘em-up Infamous 2 for a while now, and liking the look of what we’ve seen so far: you shoot monsters with your hands – what’s not to like?

Anyway, developer Sucker Punch has released a teaser trailer for their upcoming sequel, and it reveals some plot details, namely that ‘the Beast’ is coming. But what is the beast? Ah, well you’re going to have to wait until they release another teaser, aren’t you? (Our guess is that it’ll be some sort of grotesque looking giant monster, to be honest.)

‘What's the Beast, you ask? Like a meteor from outer space it's a force of destruction too powerful for humanity to contain,’ said the developer in a somewhat melodramatic press release. ‘At the end of inFamous, Cole MacGrath was given a vision that the Beast would arrive into the world and that he alone could stop it. The safety of our species was put on his shoulders. No pressure right?

‘As you might imagine Cole would do anything in his power to get ready for the fight. He's desperate to win, to save the lives of his friends and neighbors.

‘But at the start of inFamous 2 he fails. The Beast arrives and Cole isn't strong enough. He's forced to run south to New Marais and prepare for a second, final encounter while his home, Empire City, is swallowed in flames.’
