Infamous: Second Son gameplay details

Infamous: Second Son was announced at the PS4 reveal event and will be a launch title for the system.

We have some new details on the game and how it plays. Delsin is the main protagonist of the game which we all saw in the reveal trailer. He has powers just like Cole from the first two Infamous games.

He is a conduit and can control smoke. He can use more powers and is very excited about them unlike Cole. You could see the grin in his face in the trailer. He can also absorb other conduits’ power.

In the game he can either use force to take down forward-operating bases run by the DUP around Seattle, or eliminate security systems.

He can perform a smoke-dash maneuver and use air ducts which are scattered all across Seattle to get around places. He can also throw smoking fireballs. He has the same “thunder drop” move like Cole had.

He also has a move called the smoke cloud which can immobilize enemies. He also has an alternative weapon in which he can use his chain. Delsin can absorb smoke by pressing both thumbs down on the touchpad, and this is like a way to use the extra input provided on the DualShock 4 controller.

The game will be released along with the PS4 sometime later this year. Please buy the latest issue of GameInformer to read more details on the game.
