While hearing Sony say inFAMOUS: Second Son last night was nothing new, the in-game footage that they showed us was. In fact, it marked our first introduction to Reggie Rowe, main character Delsin’s brother, who just so happens to be a cop. According to Sucker Punch, he’s an important player in the upcoming PS4 behemoth, assisting his younger brother on his trek to Seattle.
During the trailer’s two minute-long runtime, we were also given some great looks at Delsin’s new and enhanced powers. The moves shown ranged from basic bolt shooting to an extravagant uppercut, and even some sort of a teleportation takedown. Neat stuff, to say the least.
Take a look:

So are you excited for E3? All of us at Sucker Punch are, as we’ve just put the finishing touches on our first LIVE gameplay demo we’ll be showing off in the PlayStation booth, and our latest trailer unveiled tonight at the press conference. The new trailer introduces Delsin Rowe’s older brother, Reggie, who will accompany Delsin on his journey in Seattle. Reggie is voiced by Travis Willingham, who interestingly is close friends in real life with Troy Baker, the voice actor for Delsin. You’ll get a glimpse into Delsin and Reggie’s relationship, and also see how much fun Delsin has being a superhuman, especially when using his awesome Orbital Drop maneuver shown at the end of the trailer.
Underneath the hood, we’ve been hard at work making use of the power of PS4 to bring Seattle and the superhuman experience to life, with everything from real-time reflections on the water to some amazing effects for Delsin’s smoke powers. But don’t take our word for it; check out the trailer and come by the inFAMOUS Second Son Experience Chamber in the PlayStation Booth to see the live gameplay demo in person. Who knows, you might even run into me giving the demo. Enjoy!
