The lights are on
This holiday will mark the release of the PlayStation 4, and gamers can't wait to learn more about Sony's jump to the next generation. In anticipation of this big event, Game Informer set out to create the definitive PlayStation 4 issue. Starting with a 10 page feature on Sucker Punch's Infamous Second Son (the cover star), our massive feature doesn't stop there. We explore the future of PlayStation 4 including Sony's new indie agenda, discuss Media Molecule's upcoming project, and reveal new information and screens for Destiny, Knack, Killzone: Shadow Fall, and DriveClub. On top of all that, we also interviewed Sony's Shuhei Yoshida and got our hands on the Dual Shock 4 controller.
But enough about our 30-page PlayStation 4 cover story, let's get back to Infamous Second Son.
With Cole MacGrath out of the picture, the country is on high alert looking for other conduits. To deal with this perceived threat, the government has set up the oppressive Department of Unified Protection, and they've placed Seattle on lockdown. As new protagonist Delsin Rowe, players will be given more than enough opportunities to fight the power.
Watch our coverage trailer below for a taste of what to expect from our content. Also, check out the first information on three new PlayStation indie games: Hohokum, a creative and colorful 2D sandbox game; Counterspy, a 2D cover-based shooter steeped in the spy mythology of the '50s and '60s; and Doki-Doki Universe, a quirky tale from the creator of ToeJam & Earl starring a robot on a mission to learn about humanity.

Black and yellow black and yellow black and yellow...
CALLED IT! a friend and I were talking about Second son when it came out and I flat out told him it would be the June issue of Gameinformer, the other two were.
Very cool cover
A month finished, and still no gameplay for BAO... *sighs*
Awesome cover, can’t wait to get my hands on it!
I LOVE THIS SERIES, HOPE THEY KNOCK THIS GAME OUT OF THE PARK.
Really looking forward to this article. The blurb about Second Son in the May issue was enough to get me excited about this game.
I can't wait for this to come in.
Time to renue my subscription! I have wanted to renue it since, the last cover I remember having was the BIOSHOCK INFINITY cover, then I when I went to renuew my subscription but the cover was ASSASSINS CREED 3, so I decided not to renew because I didnt wanted to be filled with expectations for Ubisoft to broke.
I also missed the LAST OF US cover,then the GRAND THEFT AUTO V cover, but ended up preordering the 3games,now ittime to renew again
I really like that cover.
There's been a lot of issues being released with dark tones lately.
