Infamous: Second Son is an upcoming open world action-adventure video game, developed by Sucker Punch Productions and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 4 video game console. It will be the third main game in the Infamous series. It was revealed at the PlayStation Meeting on February 20, 2013. It features a new protagonist, Delsin Rowe, and takes place several years after the events with Cole MacGrath and the Beast from the first two titles. The game is to be set in Seattle, and is schedule for a early 2014 release. In the June Game Informer cover story, Sucker Punch stated that while Delsin's powers appeared to be smoke based in the reveal trailer, his true power is the ability to copy the abilities of other conduits.
The game takes place seven years after the events of Infamous 2, where a network of security cameras throughout U.S. cities allows the government to keep a good eye on the population. The government claims that these are used to hunt "bioterrorists" (more specifically, people with Conduit powers like Cole MacGrath), while events from the game indicate that they might be using the cameras for other reasons. The government has created a special force for capturing "bioterrorists", called the D.U.P. (Department of United Protection).
The story begins when graffiti artist Delsin Rowe (Troy Baker) discovers he has the ability to absorb other Conduit powers after he tries to save the people in a burning bus, inadvertently absorbing the power of a conduit who is able to manipulate smoke. The D.U.P. immediately name him a bioterrorist and attempt to arrest him. However, Delsin resists, and uses his powers to fend off the D.U.P. agents. Like previous titles in the series, Delsin's moral choices will affect the story's progression, as well as the abilities he gains access to.
