To sucker punch productions hello my name is austin and I am a huge fan of the infamous franchise and would like to give some ideas for a game. Now I know you probably get a lot of people saying this but I hope you consider this as I put a lot of time, and thought into it.
This is just one story line idea. A missile is launched at a unsuspecting nation from some where in the ocean when the missile detonates the it releases a pulse of energy that activates a large group of conduits. The region is sent into unrest and the American government offers to send a D.U.P. agent that will investigate the explosion and defeat the rouge conduit the twist is that the agent is a clone of Delson Rowe who was made by Augustine as yet another plan to make people fear conduits and the D.U.P. seem needed however no one not even the agent knows that or what his current mission really is. He then runs into a massive fight between conduits. This is where you get your first set of powers after which all other conduits run away for fear that their powers would be stolen. Throughout the game you encounter drones, choppers, boats, tanks, and even mech suits powered by blast shards that give special powers to the machine like mech suits that can heal them selves with electricity, tanks that shoot ice, and helicopters that become smoke tornados( this is where you gather a lot of your blast shards).
You encounter several people and factions that depending on your karma will be friends or enemies to you. This also determines how you gain your powers. Throughout the game you uncover a mystery that tells the main story you already know you play as Delson's clone but without Augustine pulling the strings so you don't know what's going on over time you discover that the person that launched the missile and started this whole thing was the leader of the nation your currently in who was working with the Americans to stage a war in the region to help develop new weapons one of those weapons being you!!!!!!
On good karma you fight back to prevent a war that would lead to billions of conduits in a arms race that would likely destroy the world. And on evil you take over the project and start the war on your own.
