The lights are on
If you've been following our month of Infamous Second Son coverage, you know we're excited for Sucker Punch's Playstation 4 debut. The studio is taking the superhero franchise to a new console with a new protagonist, and his powers have a ton of potential. Now we want to know what questions you have for the team.
We'll be talking to Sucker Punch very soon for our next podcast, and we'll be asking them questions directly from the Game Informer community. What do you want to know about Infamous Second Son? Let us know in the comments below.

With the choice to a new protagonist for Second Son, I understand that this decision came about due to the trophy data from inFamous 2 indicating that ~78% choose the good ending leading to Cole's sacrifice in the end as opposed to the bad ending leading Cole to becoming the Beast. I also recall there was a lot of controversy with the initial design changes for Cole in inFamous 2 resulting in reverting his design back to his original look from inFamous 1.
I'm wondering if the desire to lead with a new protagonist for Second Son afforded Sucker Punch the freedom to make these creative design changes without fear of upsetting the community with changes to Cole or was this chance necessary in order to explore additional avenues to take the inFamous story to new places that couldn't have been done within Cole's story arc?
Will stealth be part of the game since smoke is a very mysterious type of ability that he'll start out with?
Hmm, so what's the deal with sandbox elements? They in, or out?
Will we see characters from Infamous 1 and 2 make a return or will we be introduced to a colorful cast of brand new characters?
What improvements have been made regarding the fighting system, especially the melee combat?
Will there be any kind of multiplayer or will you stick to user generated missions?
Or are there any new features?
What type of activities, such as side missions, can we do when we're not on any main story quests?
Will we be able to use delsin's fists just like cole in infamous 1 and be able to alternate between both the fists and his chains just like in infamous 2 where we were able to swap different powers into different combinations?
where is zeke
Will we see free-running/climbing abilities make a return? If so, will Delsin start with these abilities, or will he acquire them progressively through main/side missions?
I played on the evil side in infamous 2 and like that ending better. What will you be doing to impress those of us who played the dark side? Also will the lead character and his powers change visually depending on choices like they did for cole?
Will we see any characters return from previous games?
what was the biggest obstacle in the development of Infamous: Second Son on the ps4? and do you see yourselves making bigger and better games long into the ps4's life(due to the hardware)?
Can't wait to pre-order the PS4 and Sucker Punch's new adventure :D
Will there be a visual distinction representing your moral standing ( example: red or blue lighting and tattoos )? And what kind of changes are you making to the karma system?
Is the Dunbar Beam going to make a comeback?
Will Second Son have more of a grey area in its moral choices or will they stay with the red and blue areas that the series is known for?
Infamous secon son is a PS4 Game but will be a PS3 vesion of second son?
