InFamous 2 to add oil and ice based powers

InFamous 2’s NPC “consciences”, Kuo and Nix, come equipped with ice and oil based super powers along with moral harangues.

MTV Multiplayer discovered the new, non-electric powers during a demonstration.

MTV mentioned a wall of ice to boost the power of force push, and an oil power that drains life from nearby enemies.

While the new powers are normally restricted to NPC support, Cole will occasionally be offered a one-time-only chance to obtain one of these new abilities for himself. Choosing between two options seals off the other forever.

As in the first game, Cole’s appearance will morph depending on his actions; in this case, choosing the “good” option, Kuo, will create an heroic auro, while the “bad” Nix will give our protagonist an evil image.

Sucker Punch revealed an upgraded karma system for InFamous 2, which sees two NPC’s accompanying Cole on his journey and offering suggestions as to how he might proceed.

The superhero action game will release exclusively for PlayStation 3 in June.
