Infamous: Second Son PS4 Screenshots Revealed
Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
Sony and Sucker Punch Productions have just revealed some fresh new screenshots from the upcoming PlayStation 4 title Infamous: Second Son. The game is set in a virtual replica of Seattle and continues the Infamous series which has seen Infamous and Infamous 2 so far. The game introduces a new protagonist Delsin Rowe.
The newly released images can all be seen in this article. Click on each image to open up a full sized 1080p image of the screenshots. One thing that strikes me is that the graphics look pretty amazing and they certainly give me hope about the capabilities of the next generation of consoles.
Sucker Punch have briefly described Infamous: Second Son on their website for those who are interested in the game and its story.
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, Washington, 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 teenagers he pulled from the wreckage?
Setting the scene: It’s been 7 years since the Cole MacGrath 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. Benjamin Franklin once wrote “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase 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 that the gameplay and story take will depend on the decisions you make along the way.
