InFamous is an action-adventure video game developed by Sucker Punch Productions and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for PlayStation 3. The game was released in May 2009. In Infamous, the player controls the protagonist Cole MacGrath, a bike messenger caught in the center of an explosion that devastates several city blocks of the fictional Empire City. The explosion sends the city into chaos while Cole finds himself with new electricity-based super powers. Though the game's story follows Cole using his new abilities to restore some semblance of order to Empire City, the player is given several opportunities to use these powers for good or evil purposes in the game's Karma system. These choices ultimately affect character growth, the reaction of the City's populace towards Cole, and finer elements of gameplay and the story.

Configuration

Options that deviate from RPCS3's default settings and provide the best experience with this title are listed below.

CPU configuration

Setting Option Notes
SPU xfloat accuracy Accurate Fixes disappearing enemies and game crashing when a giant conduit is killed.

GPU configuration

Setting Option Notes
ZCULL accuracy Relaxed Improves performance, especially in Historic District.
Resolution scale threshold 256x256 Reduces visual artifacts on areas with bloom when using resolution scaling
Multithreaded RSX On Improves performance a little.
Asynchronous texture streaming On Can improve performance depending on the GPU.

Advanced configuration

Setting Option Notes
Sleep timers accuracy As Host Improves performance.
RSX FIFO accuracy Atomic Helps with stability.

Debug configuration

Known Issues

Broken visual effects - Issue 11149

Fire or smoke effects currently don't render correctly and will appear pixelated or translucent depending on the area you are in.

Refraction effects from abilities (most notably glide and shield) or from world objects like air vents do not currently distort the image properly.

Special Notes

Mesh Trimming

  • Using resolution scale above 100% will result in culling of polygons in complex models. Small triangles that would not be visible at certain distances at 720p will be culled, affecting most notably the main character's face and NPCs at long distances.
