New Marais is the main setting of inFamous 2, based on New Orleans, Louisiana. Developers have stated that the city is much more diverse, populated, and dangerous compared to Empire City in the first game. Concept art showed sections with clock towers, a church, a swamp, a cemetery and an abandoned mansion. Cole states that four years before the game's events, he came to New Marais to practice his parkour, even Zeke having an attempt at it, due to the recent flooding and the police's leniency compared to other cities.The main enemies in this city are the Militia, a group of human purity enthusiasts who wish to eliminate all super-powered humans. They are led by Bertrand. Also, ordinary humans have began to transform into Corrupted; nightmarish, rabid creatures that attack Cole and the citizens alike, forming a pseudo-gang of their own. Later on within the game, the player will encounter the Vermaak 88, a South African private military firm that have been given Cryokinesis by Betrand's Transfer Device.
