inFAMOUS: Second Son Picks Up 7 Years After Previous Games

Nestled firmly within Sony’s PlayStation 4 vanguard, inFAMOUS: Second Son is making somewhat of a departure from previous instalments in the series.

First off, you’ll no longer be taking the helm as super-charged poster-boy, Cole McGrath.

Instead, players will assume the role of Delsin Rowe, a hot-headed Seattle native who has never had much respect for authority. Even less so after being imbued with superpowers and hunted by the Department of Unified Protection (DUP) as a suspected “bio-terrorist.”

Seven years have passed since the resolution to Cole McGrath’s story and, as a result, super-powered humans have been cropping up here and there all over the world. Fearing the worst, the DUP is immediately formed in order to detain or destroy anyone who might threaten the safety of America’s people.

Unlike Cole, Delsin commands the power to manipulate, create, or even transform into smoke constructs. How this will transfer into actual gameplay remains to be seen, though the debut trailer suggests that there could be a heavy focus on both stealth and melee.

Finally, Sucker Punch has confirmed that the central themes of Second Son are both liberation and value of freedom, as touched upon by Nate Fox during the game’s announcement.

Expect to hear more in the coming months, leading into E3 2013.

  1. The first to games for me were amazing. Im soo glad they have opted to go for a fresh take on the game. Too many squeals are just the same with a little extra. However this looks unique!
    Cant wait

  2. I believe Sucker Punch should just go crazy with InFAMOUS(i always thought it was spelt Infamous not InFAMOUS)Second Son as they have a decent reason to. It would make the game a lot more fun. The first one was fun but had some annoying flaws, such as Cole grabbing onto every ledge and being repetive. Haven’t play the second one.

    Hmm, i wonder if ISS is influnced by Xmen and heroes? As i think X-men had a storyline where a government department viewed all mutants as terrorists. And the one in heroes seeked to control all superhumans.

    If this uses a certain ending, i suspect Cole will be the main villian. If they’ve decided to go for the fallen hero angle.
