inFAMOUS: Second Son Coverstory Reveal + Details

Game Informer has gotten hands-on the newest inFAMOUS game, Second Son, that’s set to PS4. In addition to Second Son being their featured as their 10 page coverstory, GI goes in depth detailing the game’s plot, setting, and new protagonist Delsin Rowe. Apparently inFAMOUS: Second Son draws many parallels with post 9/11 America with the set up of government institutions to “protect us” from terrorism but however in this universe it is the Conduits, which are actually known has bioterrorists in this game. Delsin admires anti-authoritarian street art and with his smoke manipulative powers he isn’t ready to give up his liberty for safety.

– Security vs. freedom theme

DUP guards

 

– DUP guards feature behavior similar to that of SWAT teams/trained military police
– Others have a seemingly supernatural ability to shield themselves and move around quickly
– Sucker Punch won’t elaborate on this further

 

Protagonist

 

– Stars 24-year-old Native American Delsin Rowe
– Delsin is the artistic type with a chip on his soldier
– Fan of anti-authoritarian street art
– Likes tagging buildings with his own art
– Very much an average guy until the conduit-transport vehicle crashes

– Soon realizes that he can control smoke
– Natural power lets him absorb other conduits’ power
– Can use more than smoke power
– Delsin is excited about his power unlike Cole

 

Gameplay

 

– Delsin can take down different forward-operating bases run by the DUP around Seattle
– Can get through these areas with force, but eliminating security systems is more effective
– Smoke projectile at Delsin’s disposal
– Also can perform a smoke-dash maneuver somewhat like Nightcrawler
– Air ducts found all across Seattle
– Can use the ducts to get around or climb like Cole
– Another technique lets Delsin throw smoking fireballs
– When Delsin descends, he can perform a “move” like Cole’s thunder drop
– Forests act as the edge of the game world
– Another move: smoke cloud; immobilize enemies
– Can restock on smoke from chimneys, destroyed cars, and even tear gas canister
– Can also use Delsin’s chain as an alternative weapon
– Absorb smoke by pressing both thumbs down on the touchpad
– Touchpad can also be used to free conduits in cells
– Team wants to simply the controls; inFamous 2 actions required multiple button presses
– One moment of the demo lets players make a decision about killing a DUP officer or not
– Can switch between entire sets of power that complement each other

 

General

 

– Sucker Punch recreated the city’s feel instead of specific road layout
