InFamous: Second Son is the third release in the InFamous Saga, developed by Sucker Punch and published by Sony. This action-adventure installment has a new protagonist. Replacing our beloved hero (or hated villain) Cole MacGrath, we will play as Delsin Rowe, a 24-year-old conduit who has the mimic superpower. This means that you will be able to absorb the special abilities from other superhumans. However, the first powers he acquires are based on smoke and embers (We miss you Nix!), and he will be able to transform into smoke and travel quickly around the city, or to throw smoke with his hands. Unlike in previous games, electricity is not your friend.
Replacing our beloved hero (or hated villain) Cole MacGrath, we will play as Delsin Rowe, a 24-year-old conduit who has the mimic superpower
The storyline starts seven years after the events of New Marais. The developer takes the good ending of InFamous 2, (Spoiler Alert!) where all conduits have supposedly been eliminated by the RFI (Ray Field Inhibitor) that MacGrath activated. Nevertheless, those who were far from the epicenter, or who had a natural resistance to the RFI, survived. However, after the destruction of Empire City and New Marais, society fears superhumans, and they have been classified as BioTerrorists. Now the DUP (Department of Unified Protection) monitors conduit abilities.
Here starts the story of our new protagonists. In an Akomish reservation in Washington, Delsin witness a crash of a truck that carries Conduit prisoners. The prisoners scape, but one is traped in the truck. Delsin goes and helps him, and after coming into contact with the conduit, Delsin's powers are awakened. His Akomish community is tortured with the conduit powers of leader of the DUP, Brooke Agustine, to get information about Delsin. The only way to save his friends is comming after Agustine and absorb her powers to undo what she has done.This way, he goes to Seattle to fights against the oppressive government and to catch Agustine, with other superhumans, such as Abigail "Fecth" Walker. The brother of Delsin, Reggie, is apolice officer that at first wants to help Delsin, but depending on your Karma, he can be an ally or he can fight to stop your revenge.
Enjoy your superpowers in gameplay
In this release, you will not be as free as you were in Empire City and New Marais. Taking into account that the DUP is looking for conduits, you will be ruthlessly hunted and caged if you are not smart enough. Seattle is filled with security cameras that follow the steps of whoever shows supernatural ability. Like in InFamous and InFamous 2, Karma will have a great influence on the storyline. Karmic choices will make a difference in the ending of the video game. Depending on the nature of your Karma, citizens may flee in horror or, conversely, ask you for an autograph when they see you.
He will recharge his powers by absorbing chimney smoke, from gas canisters or cars, just as Cole absorbed energy from lampposts, panels or cars
As mentioned, in this release, Deslin’s powers will be based on smoke and embers, and he will be free to absorb the powers of other conduits. This offers great possibilities for varying your superpowers. However, the basics of the gameplay remain the same. As Cole with the amp that Zeke designed, Deslin has a chain, which he uses as his main melee weapon. He will "recharge" his powers by absorbing chimney smoke, from gas canisters or cars, just as Cole absorbed energy from lampposts, panels or cars. The Karma Bomb is other one of his abilities. It is even more impressive than the Thunder Drop of our previous protagonist.
