Sucker Punch has announced inFamous: Second Son exclusively for the PlayStation 4.

The game takes place seven years after the events of inFamous 2, with Seattle under the control of 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.

However, humans with otherworldly powers are resisting the DUP's Orwellian grip.

The protagonist is Delsin Rowe, a 24 year-old who discovers he has the ability to direct, manipulate and even transform into smoke.

As with the other games in the inFamous series, the path the gameplay and story take will depend on the decisions the player makes along the way.
