The lights are on
In the wake of the Second Son reveal, Sucker Punch producer Brian Fleming took to the PlayStation blog to give us a clearer understanding of what the game has to offer.
Rather than rejurgitate the information, we'll just post what Fleming had to say:
"Delsin Rowe is the star of Second Son, and you probably know someone like him: A 24 year-old who is absolutely convinced he’s destined for greatness; though so far that greatness has managed to elude him. He grew up just outside Seattle, where his great – if accidental – calling comes crashing into his life. After rescuing occupants from a fiery bus wreck, he discovers that he suddenly has the ability to direct, manipulate and even transform into… smoke. Could he have absorbed this power from one of the passengers he pulled from the wreckage?
"Setting the scene: It’s been seven years since the Cole McGrath episodes and the world has clearly changed. Anyone showing signs of being a so-called “bio-terrorist” is immediately handed over to the Department of Unified Protection (DUP) — a government agency created to ensure there is never a repeat of the catastrophic events of Empire City and New Marais. So Delsin, who has never been particularly respectful of authority, finds himself caught in the DUP dragnet – and decides he’s not going to go quietly.
"Along the way, Delsin is going to ask questions that are not just relevant to the world of Second Son – but to the world we all live in today. A world where we are often instructed to surrender our freedoms to help improve our security. Ben Franklin once wrote “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Is he right?
"As you play Second Son, you’ll explore lots of Seattle’s familiar landmarks. As with all games in this series, the path the gameplay and story take will depend on the decisions you make along the way. Of course, we are creating all these characters and locations at a remarkable level of detail – made possible by PS4. In fact, this trailer was produced in-house using our game engine – can you tell we’re having fun with the new GPU, tools, and our new VFX system?"

Looks great... but somehow I'm just not feeling it. I loved Infamous 2 and its ending.... but this less freedom to me. Maybe when I see more gameplay that will change... but right now... eh....
Yowzers! This looks amazing! Very interesting. Gonna keep my eye out for this one.
Bamf! (Both meanings, hopefully.)
I am actually excited for this game. It looks wonderful.
I guess the only way for this game to make any sense is if the Evil Cole failed to take over the world and the D.U.P is wiping out the conduits. Kinda bad but good to have a sequel. If it's half as good as Infamous 2 then I'll be in line day one.
I hope this will be GI's cover story soon
Please, please, please, Sucker Punch. Don't take away the Improved Static Thrusters.
I'm sure you meant 'regurgitate'...
Well if u go off the good ending. U can say the conduit gene happens again. The RFI killed all of yhe conduits that wrre on the planet. Whos says conduits cant happen again. Or gov't testing. I dont know. Just throing ideas out. Seven years. Alot can happen in seven years
so far so good
The PS4 is gonna be awesome
Oh, wow... between this and Killzone I'm just about itching for the holidays. Definitely like how they're using a new element this time around. About time, to be honest.
hmm well sense this takes place in Seattle this means there is still a good possibility that cole survived i mean you dont put a lightning bolt at the end of infamous 2 if you dont want the main character to come back alive
I hope this a launch title.
Awesome series. Really looking forward to this game.
