Infamous: Second Son is truly going to be a new beginning for the Infamous series with a new main character, new setting, new powers and, of course, new platform: the game has been officially revealed at the Playstation Meeting last month and it looks really interesting.
Infamous: Second Son will be Playstation 4 launch titles: according to a resume from Sucker Punch’s rendering programmer the game will ship during the last quarter of 2013. This resume has been removed but Siliconera has managed to take a screencap of the page before it got removed.
Infamous: Second Son will be set after the events of the second inFamous game and follows the story of Deslin Rowe, a 24 years old man who gains the ability to direct, manipulate and transform into smoke. These new powers will open up all new gameplay possibilities while retaining the trademark inFamous gameplay. Graphics wise the game will make use of high dynamic range imaging for lightning and other graphical effects, giving it an exciting and unique feel.
With the news now out, we should expect an official release date as soon as one is given for the new Playstation 4 console, most likely coming at this year’s E3.
