Infamous Second Son's Delsin Rowe is unrepentant about his newfound powers, even as society fears and vilifies his kind. As we saw in a new gameplay demo, it's easy to understand how a person could grow attached to being superpowered.

In the gameplay video, Rowe infiltrates the Space Needle and surrounding science-museum grounds to take out surveillance equipment. His fire and smoke-based abilities allow him to do things like phase through chain-link doors, which makes his mission easier. Once inside, he takes out Department of United Protection guards by warping near them and either overwhelming them with smoke or flailing them into submission with his fire-imbued chain. His opponents are clearly outmatched; the DUP agents can't seem to draw a reliable bead on him thanks to his constant evasion.

Rowe is a threat at a distance, too, hurling fireballs that knock cover aside and blast through armor. In the rare moments when things get too hairy, Rowe rockets skyward, leaving a fiery trail behind him.

After working his way through the compound, Rowe demolishes a surveillance van and shuts it down. The move attracts a heavy amount of backup, though Rowe remains unconcerned. From ground level, he leaps up to the height of the Space Needs, pausing to smirk at the camera before smashing down to the ground. All visible DUP threats are taken out in the resultant destruction, and the demo ends with a literal bang.
