Fresh Details On InFamous: Second Son
inFamous: Second Son may be the third game in Sucker Punch’s highly successful franchise but it’s starting from zero and going with a new protagonist, new setting, new powers, new mechanics, new everything really. It also looks so good you’ll want to marry it. Okay, time to bury my inner fanboy and get down to business.
The latest issue of Game Informer offers up fresh details on the PS4 exclusive. the game will follow Delsin Rowe, a 24 year old street artist with the obligatory anti-establishment outlook. Rowe can control smoke and absorb the powers of enemies which come in the form of the Department of Unified Protection.

The DUP is a government defence branch created to control conduits, people with powers. In Second Son all conduits are regarded as bio-terrorists and highly dangerous. Anyone else getting a Nazi Germany/genocide feeling yet?
Like Cole from the first two games, Delsin will be able to manifest his powers in many different ways including smoke projectiles, fiery smokeballs, smoke dashing and more. Of course no set of smoke powers is complete without a smoke-screen which can be sued to distract and confuse enemies. These powers will be replenished by absorbing smoke from chimneys and wrecked cars.
This game game is starting to sound like the biggest pro-smoking campaign since the Marlboro man was around.
Delsin will traverse a slightly altered version of Seattle created in the developer’s own image and will get around via a network of airducts. Second Son is due out at the end of 2013 and I’m pretty excited or at least I would be if there were any degree of certainty over whether I’ll have a PS4 by then or not.
