Infamous Second Son is the "third" (fourth if you count Infamous: Festival of Blood) installment in the Infamous (sometimes stylized as "inFAMOUS") franchise. Infamous: Second Son is a sequel to Infamousand Infamous 2 and takes place in Seattle seven years after the events in New Marais documented in Infamous 2. Infamous: Second Son is exclusive to Playstation 4 and was officially revealed at Sony's Playstation 4 reveal event in NYC on February 20th, 2013. Official PlayStation Blog.
The "DUP" (Department of Unified Protection) is a police and monitoring group dedicated to keeping order and capturing Conduits, which are the people with superhuman powers. With Cole McGrath no longer returning, the game features a new protagonist called Delsin Rowe whose main ability is being able to absorb the power of other conduits.
Similar to the original Infamous, Delsin starts-off as a regular human until a life-changing event happens. Having saved some passengers from a fiery bus-wreck, it's then that he gains his abilities, with Sucker Punch hinting that he absorbed his powers from one of them.
Sucker Punch also confirmed that decision-making (Karma) mechanics will appear in this game, similar to the previous two Infamous games. Karma will affect cutscenes, the visual appearance of your character, in-game events and the Endings.
