The latest issue of Game informer which will be featuring inFamous: Second Son revealed  tons of new details almost up to 10-pages cover story. The magazine will release June 2013. A few interesting details about the game from the magazine can be found below.

  • Conduits now referred to as bioterrorists
  • New area of government keeps track of the conduits: Department of Unified Protection
  • Condits have been identified, holding them without trial in containment facilities
  • Department of Unified Protection shows its power during an operation that doesn’t go as planned in Seattle
  • Transport vehicle crashes and the conduits escape
  • DUP sets up roadblocks and won’t let anyone enter/leave
  • - Lots of security systems are sent out and Seattle is turned into something reminisint of an airport
  • - There are elevated walkways with search-lights and security cameras as well as checkpoints and scanners
  • - Game has parallels to post-9/11 America setting
  • - Security vs. freedom theme
  • - DUP is like the TSA

DUP guards

  • - DUP guards feature behavior similar to that of SWAT teams/trained military police
  • - Others have a seemingly supernatural ability to shield themselves and move around quickly
  • - Sucker Punch won’t elaborate on this further

Protagonist

  • - Can use more than smoke power
  • - Delsin is excited about his power unlike Cole

Gameplay
