Infamous Second Son Video Looks At The Motion Capture Process

The PlayStation 4 is a powerful piece of hardware, and Sucker Punch, the developer behind Infamous Second Son, are putting it to good use with new motion capture processes.

We were able to take a detailed look at the scanning process used to create the diverse pedestrians of Second Sons virtual Seattle, but the latest video from the developer dives deeper. This video looks at the process of capturing the performance of the actors in the game, and though it's not quite gameplay, you do get to see a little bit of the game running. At the very least, it will give you an idea of what kind of visuals we can expect to see from the game.

Infamous Second Son is coming exclusively to the PlayStation 4.

  • Wow, maybe I should get this...
  • I want to play this game... but I don't think I'll be getting a PS4 at launch. There are still so many good PS3 games to play.

  • I miss Nolan North.. I don't hear him as much in games anymore.. It's all Troy Baker now :\ It isn't a bad thing but I consistently hear the same voice in everything and it isn't as cool as Drakes. However I do like the evolution of the Mo-cap in games, they are definitely getting closer towards cinematic quality.. Which can be a good or bad thing, y'know because I do like it when a game acts like it is a game and not a interactive movie.
  • I like what I am seeing, and I am interested to see how other developers use similar tech to drive emotion home in their games.  

  • Where is this month's cover reveal?!

  • Ironically the last time I saw a video like this was the DmC video. Its ironic because most folks are saying the new protagonist looks like Donte....yes I spelled that right.
  • Last week we got a mocap video for Watch Dogs (which I was already excited about) that got me even more excited. This week we get a mocap video for Infamous: Second Son, same thing happened again. Interesting age we're living in.

  • I love behind the scenes videos like this. The amount of detail they have captured is astounding, and it is great to see how the industry is progressing. I think we are finally at the level where we can capture the intricacies of an actor's face and thus truly present a moving performance in its entirety. That makes me very excited for future narratives.
  • This is some epic mo-cap.

  • where is the native american actor?  

    is the main character mixed then ?

  • Currently replaying Infamous 2.. Sucker Punch and Naughty dog are THE BEST developers.

  • Man, that most take SO much time!

  • Looks pretty cool. But I feel like I'm not going to like the main character.

  • Cool beans.

  • Is that the same actor that did Booker's voice in Infinite? They're faces look really similar.
  • I'm not a fan of Infamous, but the advances in mo-cap technology are pretty exciting. I can't wait for it to be used in a more story driven game like Mass Effect.

  • Was that Troy Baker in the video? If so, then I remain unsurprised.

  • Exciting. I can't wait to get a PS4 in my home.

  • It's getting to the point that people will begin to be recognized on the street for their face work in a video game. The detail is becoming phenomenal.

  • Awesome.
