Sucker Punch comes to Sony's next-gen console.

Sucker Punch’s latest game is a PlayStation 4-exclusive about people with super powers. And it’s not inFAMOUS 3. It’s inFAMOUS: Second Son.

Second Son stars new character Delsin Row. He’s a 24-year-old “absolutely convinced he’s destined for greatness,” according to Sucker Punch Productions’ Brian Fleming. “Though so far his greatness has managed to elude him.”

Delsin grew up just outside of Seattle, Washington—the game’s setting—where after rescuing occupants from a fiery bus wreck, he discovers he has the ability to direct, manipulate, and transform into smoke.

The game takes place seven years after “the Cole McGrath episodes” and the world has “clearly changed.” Anyone showing signs of being a “bio-terrorist” is immediately handed over to the Department of Unified Protection, a government agency created to ensure a repeat of the series’ previous events never happen again. And Delsin, not a fan of authority, gets caught in the agency’s dragnet.

“Along the way, Delsin is going to ask questions that are not just relevant to the world of Second Son – but to the world we all live in today,” said Fleming. “A world where we are often instructed to surrender our freedoms to help improve our security. Ben Franklin once wrote ‘Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.’ Is he right?”
