inFAMOUS Second Son Hands-on: Great Power, Great Responsibility

Ryan Clements's Avatar + Posted by Ryan Clements on Feb 12, 2014

Delsin Rowe strolls down a shadowy length of docks with ample confidence. Caches of illegal drugs have been hidden among the houseboats moored there, which is a disagreeable notion to our super-powered, rough-around-the-edges hero.

From the start, Seattle felt like the perfect locale for Second Son.

We wanted to capture a level of detail we had never attempted before using the amazing speed, graphics processing power, and high resolution output of PS4. Not to mention, being from here, we just couldn’t build a fake city with a fake Space Needle… I mean “Galactic Tower” just doesn’t sound right to us.
