The lights are on
After the events of Infamous 2, the series needs a new hero. Learn all about Second Son’s protagonist.
Earlier, we explained the events that took place between Infamous 2 and Infamous Second Son, but since Infamous 2 left the series without a main protagonist, developer Sucker Punch had to go back to the drawing board and create a new hero for the third entry in the series.
The studio came up with Delsin Rowe, a 24 year-old Native American male who is struggling to find his place in the world as he deals with his newfound superpowers. At the beginning of the game, Delsin doesn’t even know he has superpowers, but after saving a man from a wreck, Delsin discovers that he has absorbed the man’s smoke-based Conduit powers.
But who is Delsin, and what makes him tick? Before you spend an entire game with him, here are six meaty facts that will help you understand Second Son’s protagonist better.
Be sure to check out our cover hub for more details on Infamous Second Son.

i loved the infamous games, but something about this character bugs me a little. not the information about his character, perhaps just the smug expression?
i guess i miss cole mcgrath. though i understand how the last game finished wouldn't really lend itself to him coming back.

that right there makes me proud of being native american :)
Sucker Punch, just take my money already!!!
He sounded a heck of a lot like Troy Baker(Booker Dewitt/Joel from The Last of Us) in the trailer. Another reason to get hyped!
Too many good next gen games are coming out, it's going to destroy my wallet... I've got this, watchdogs, the evil within, and thief to buy now.
Is it just me or does the hat make him look like an extreme ******
he has a beanie? oh this has GOTY written all over it
I *** a little when I heard he could absorb powers lol. But after a moment, unless there's lots of different types of powers and it branches on... it might just sound better than it plays. The buttons (controls) would put limitations on the game anyway.
The more I hear about this, the more my anticipation builds. I feel like I'm in high school coming on the field, or stepping off the Chinook in Iraq, for a second time. Still, this game, and many others, are shaping up to be a good start for the next-gen console era.
Much better than Cole
