inFAMOUS: Second Son is the "third" installment of the inFAMOUS franchise, after inFAMOUS and in FAMOUS 2. It takes place in Seattle and stars Delsin Row, a 24 year-old hero (or anti-hero) who is convinced he's destined for greatness. After rescuing occupants from a fiery bus wreck, he discovers that he suddenly has the ability to direct, manipulate and even transform into smoke.
It’s been seven years since the Cole McGrath episodes and the world has clearly changed. Anyone showing signs of being a so-called “bio-terrorist” is immediately handed over to 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. So Delsin, who has never been particularly respectful of authority, finds himself caught in the DUP dragnet – And decides he’s not going to go quietly.
