Concrete Powers

Jarrod Garripoli

As the last power obtained by Delsin, Concrete doesn’t get to shine much outside of one big instance. It is definitely the strongest power in the game, but it is lacking in a few aspects. It doesn’t have any ability to subdue enemies, is also missing a Karma Bomb and the upgrades don’t do much outside of making its basic abilities stronger. To drain Concrete in the environment, you must get it from defeated DUP enemies.

It’s been seven years since the Cole McGrath episodes and the world has clearly changed. Anyone showing signs of being a so-called “bio-terrorist” is immediately handed over to the Department of Unified Protection (DUP) – a government agency created to ensure there is never a repeat of the catastrophic events of Empire City and New Marais. So Delsin, who has never been particularly respectful of authority, finds himself caught in the DUP dragnet, and decides he’s not going to go quietly.
