In the aftermath of an urban disaster, an everyday guy finds himself with extraordinary powers. What he does with them is up to you. This is inFamous... a superb new title for PLAYSTATION®3

If society collapsed tomorrow and you found yourself with unique powers that could either help people or hurt them, which would you do? That’s the question at the centre of inFamous, the exclusive PLAYSTATION®3 title from Sucker Punch Productions. The open-ended, free-roaming game puts you in the shoes of Cole McGrath, an everyday guy and urban explorer, in the aftermath of a huge disaster that destroys his hometown of Empire City. As Cole, you must first learn to use new found powers and then decide how you will use them.

After the explosion, Empire City falls into chaos and Cole must use his new powers and climbing agility. Along the way he will unravel an evolving mystery, experience fame and/or infamy and battle powerful, iconic villains. inFamous gives you the freedom to play how you want, whether that’s aggressively, tactically or stealthily (or indeed as a true-blue Hero (like Captain America/Superman/) or do you play as the Anti-hero guy (like Frank Miller’s Batman/Daredevil or Wolverine/ Punisher/Ghost Rider) who simply “gets things done” irrespective of the cost - be warned, however, that the city’s people and environment will react to what you do. Events will unfold based on the role you take in them and your actions will create broader reactions in the citizens and landscape around you.

Developed by Sucker Punch Productions, the studio who gave PlayStation the acclaimed Sly Cooper franchise, inFamous brings you a new type of superhero – an uncertain man with the weaknesses of a normal human being. What will you turn Cole into? The choice is yours when your inFamous!?
