Infamous: Second Son coming exclusively to PS4 from developer Sucker Punch

Infamous: Second Son is in development exclusively for PlayStation 4 by Sucker Punch Productions, game director Nate Fox announced at the Sony PlayStation Meeting 2013 today.

"Our security comes at a high price: our freedom," Fox said prior to the game's reveal. "Picture how things would change, how the world would react if a handful of people suddenly developed superhuman abilities capable of unleashing incredible carnage ... these people would be living, breathing weapons."

"Which of us would have the courage to fight to get our freedoms back?" Fox asked.

The game's trailer, which you can watch below, does not feature previous protagonist Cole MacGrath, but an unnamed man in a red hat. An unidentified person watches chaos erupt on security cameras just before the hat-wearing man lifts a broken camera and says, "You are not in control."

According to a post on Sucker Punch's website, Second Son takes place seven years after Cole's story. The game will follow Delsin Rowe, a 24-year-old who is "absolutely convinced that he's destined for greatness." Players will explore Seattle, with decisions affecting the way the game plays out.

Infamous 2 was released in 2011 as a PlayStation 3 exclusive. The game was a direct sequel to Infamous and resumed the story of Cole. The team was spotted checking in for the Sony event yesterday.
