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.

How big is this game world compared to previous inFamous games, or other open world games, such as the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim? Is it gated sections of the world per story progress or is it all open right off the bat?
Could we hear a little more about the inspiration behind Delsin's character? Like is he an all new idea for the team, or were parts of him inspired by Cole's old concept art? How have the events of the past two games, and the current state of the world affected Delsin as an artist, and will that come into play in the game? Is there any particular story behind the crow (or raven?) motif he seems to have going?
You guys have a fantastic vision going on already, and I'm greatly looking forward to experiencing Delsin's story!
Is there going to be an alert system, like prototype or Jak 2? Cause chaos and the DUP comes after you?
I posted a question earlier about how Karma might work in relation to the Powers Delsin will gain (just go see the oldest comments if you're curious) but I would also like to ask: Is the name supposed to imply Delsin having something to do with the First Sons? The whole thing between Cole and the First Sons was a huge thing in the first game, but weren't they a larger organization? Will there be a different and more advanced division of the First Sons in Seattle?
Will Delsin have something equivalent to Cole's Static Thrusters? Honestly, that power is why I continue to play after I beat the game(s).
Are there any plans to release an Infamous/True Hero crossover of any sort, such as an Infamous of Blood type thing?
You mentioned something about Seattle having unique weather as a cool reason to set the game there, so since Seattle is known for it's rain and one can presume Delsin won't have the same issues with water that Cole had, what types of rain and other weather effects will the game have and how will they add to the experience...also how sweet will they look on PS4?
In the other games you had melee attacks so will you be able mix powers with your melee attacks in second son
What kind of political issues is this game going to hit specifically? Last I checked we aren't at war with any mutants.
How did each previous game influence the next? How did Rocket: Robot on Wheels influence Sly and how did Sly influence inFAMOUS?
I joined GI just to be able to ask sucker punch 2 questions =D:
1: I've heard and read that Sony is actively pushing for 1080p 60 fps this gen. Being first party you must've noticed this, did you give in to pressure? 60fps would be a nice new standard, propably an unlocked 60fps so the game can dip when things get too fun. Will it be 60FPS??
2: Infamous was comic book inspired so naturally there are a lot of comic booky elements to the games. I felt especially with infamous 2 though that there was a large contrast between the impressive graphics and the cartoonish enemy/boss designs and the comic booky story. The giant ice monsters f.ex is a good example of the cartoonish influence.
So: With more processing power and more realistic graphics than ever, will you give it an equally realistic and maybe more grounded, relatable story and universe?
In Infamous 2, you had to have good karma to make a good morality choice, and bad to make an evil one. Is this system going to be in place in Second Son, because I felt that it limited freedom, making players choose all one way or the other. Thanks, and keep making great games!
Can we get a Telekinesis Power Set ?
And are they thinking about developing features outside of the main story and side missions ? (Like customization options, changing clothes/haircuts/beanies, etc..)
Will Second Sons be a follow up from the First Sons storyline from inFamous 2?
Did u guys change the way side missions change the behavior of the bad guys? I hate the fact that when I beat a side mission in infamous 2 nothing else happens there..., I would love to just play around and there always people to fight even with all the missions done
Is there a multiplayer.
