inFamous 2 Gamescon 2010 Trailer

Gamescom 2010 is in full effect and along with the plethora of announcements we bring you the new trailer for Sucker Punch’s inFAMOUS 2. The trailer is set to the ‘House of the Rising Sun’ by The Animals and it takes us on a tour of Empire City in various states of chaos, ending with Cole doing his Tesla thang and bringing the house down.

Check the trailer below:

Much hasn’t changed from earlier footage of the game, however one thing you will notice in the trailer is that Cole is now sporting his buzz cut from the first game. This is a departure from earlier gameplay footage we’ve showed you depicting Cole with longer hair. This was a move from Sucker Punch to appease the fans who weren’t in love with the new “Nathan Drake” inspired look.

I personally didn’t have a problem with Cole’s new design, in fact I always welcome change as long as it doesn’t break gameplay. Apparently some did have a problem and applauded Sucker Punch in the comments of the PlayStation blog post. Other than Cole’s return to his roots, there didn’t seem to be any new info to gather from this trailer. There was the scene showing one of the game’s enemy factions fighting what could be a giant creature, possibly a new enemy type. There’s a lot of smoke and debris masking the target which could be just a helicopter, but judging by the number of rockets being fired, it seems like something much more menacing.

Ranters, do you prefer Cole shaved, with hair, or better yet an electrified mo-hawk? Are you anxiously waiting the day you can get your hands on this electrifying title?

Along with Uncharted 2, inFamous was one of those must have exclusives for PS3 and inFamous 2 is shaping up to be another day-one purchase when it releases in 2011.
