Early inFamous: Second Son Details, Set For PS4 Launch?

If it does indeed launch alongside the PlayStation 4, I know what game I want most.

Game Informer has revealed the game that will grace the June cover of the publication: inFamous: Second Son.

And as a little teaser, we've got some baseline information. Former franchise protagonist Cole MacGrath is gone and the country is on high alert, as the search is on for other conduits. In order to hunt down these dangerous citizens, the government has created the oppressive Department of Unified Protection. The new main character is Delsin Rowe and he will have to find a way to fight the powers that be, and perhaps further unravel the mystery behind conduits. Admittedly, I'll kinda miss Cole.

Second Son joins the 30-page spread that focuses entirely on the upcoming PS4. Info on new indie titles (Hohokum, Counterspy, and Doki-Doki Universe), Media Molecule's latest, Knack, Destiny, DriveClub and Killzone: Shadow Fall is also on the way. Can't wait!

I thought it was common knowledge that inFamous: Second Son would be a PS4 launch title.

I'm going to miss Cole too, hopefully he will show up again at some point. Not crazy about this new guy at this point (knit hats are gay) but I'm really looking forward to this game, more than Killzone.

Even if it doesn't come out at launch maybe we can expect it for xmas when I'll probably throw down for a PS4 anyway.

I wear a knit beanie in the cold when I go boarding up in the resorts but I personally don't like the knit caps with the visor. Looks good on some chicks though.

HEY!!!!!!
I LIKE knit hats!!!!
Seriously though I'm excited for the PS4 and most of the launch games But I just did an assessment on the games and probable cost of the system and I realized I'm going to spend over $1000.00 between now and December :-(

I'm not a hat fan at all but fedoras are by far the worst.

Not at all, they have a very rich history and multiple social functions as well as allowing gentlemen who wear suits to be expressive and avoid melting into the a sea of suits.

Posting this picture out of sarcasm and for (maybe) a laugh.

Using gay as a derogatory slur? Nice one...

I hope its not a launch title, cuz then I'll be forced to get a ps4 at launch and i don't have that kinda money! Kidding aside, this is shaping up to be the best launch ever, kz shadow fall and drive club should be enough for big first party titles, then watch dogs ac4 and probably cod9 And bf4, and then there's more third party titles to be revealed, Sony's really going h.a.m. this time around. Hopefully it'll be enough to move units off the shelf.

bit skeptical about this.
infamous was such a brilliant unique well designed game.
2 just felt like a utter mess, and the story was so poorly put together!
and this, well, WTF does this have to do with infamous?
ok it has conduits, but thats about it.
its set in a real city infamous has never done that.
the choices are gone, infamous has always run on a choice system but this assumes the good ending from 2 as if the bad ending never ever happened betraying the franchises ideals.
then theres the totally different powers.
this seems to be FAR more CQC focused and hand to hand combat, rather than powers at a distance.
again betraying the ideals of the franchise.
REALLY starting to get sick of developers creating new IPs and slapping well known franchise names onto them for the simple sake of sales!
next were going to have a racing simulator and its going to be called FIFA, a snowboarding game called NBL, and a third person mindless shooter called Xcom!
oh wait..........

I keep expecting this new protagonist, "Yo, Mr. White! Science bi***!" Looks like Jessie from Breaking Bad. I'll miss cole too, I heard they're going with the good ending as cannon, which is disappointing. The bad ending would have set up something special for Second Son.

Give the smoke powers a chance, I think there could be some amazing teleportation moments and some incredible powers to use with smoke.

Smoke is apparently not his actual power, it's one he picked up and will probably be his default. His actual power is similar to Peter from Heroes where he can take on other conduit's powers/abilities.
