Rejoice, inFamous fans: your Second Son is arriving soon (and trust me: I didn’t even pre-order a PS4 yet and I’m right along-side you rejoicing)!
Sony has announced that inFamous: Second Son, their upcoming PS4-exclusive and the third entry in the inFamous series, won’t quite be making the PS4 launch timeframe this year, but will instead be releasing in February 2014 – not too long after the PS4’s presumed November launch date. As the next chapter of the inFamous series, Second Son was announced this past February during Sony’s PS4 reveal event as an exclusive and in development by Sucker Punch, the same studio of the previous inFamous titles and the Sly Cooper series.
inFamous: Second Son will reportedly take things in a different direction for the series, as series mainstay Cole McGrath won’t be in the upcoming sequel, but players will instead follow a new character in the inFamous universe in an entirely new location. Playing as Delsin Rowe, a young and budding Conduit with powers to manipulate smoke and fire, the game will take place seven years after the events of inFamous 2 in Seattle, while also implementing the morality-based choices of good or evil that the series has been known for.
inFamous: Second Son has been confirmed to release in February 2014 for PS4: stay tuned for more details as release approaches.
