Latest inFamous: Second Son dev diary gets soaking wet

Posted on January 27, 2014 AT 11:08am

Sony and Sucker Punch have released a new dev diary for the upcoming PS4 exclusive inFamous: Second Son, focusing on the game’s rain effects.

The three-minute video, visible below, features a behind-the-scenes look at some of the technology Sucker Punch is using to bring Seattle to life in all its depressing dampness, alongside some in-game footage showing off its gorgeous weather effects.

“Our goal was to create an urban playground for the player as they experience Delsin’s amazing superhuman powers, so it was paramount that we capture the essence of the city,” explains art director Horia Dociu in an accompanying PlayStation Blog post.”We wanted to give the player the feeling of walking down an alleyway and seeing the rain accumulate between the cobblestones, and the reflections of the rain-streaked, brick buildings and neon market signs.”

inFamous: Second Son will be out on March 21, 2014.
