PlayStation franchise inFamous will return with PlayStation 4 title Second Son, Sucker Punch and Sony have announced.

The game is set seven years after events featuring Cole McGrath, with the game's protagonist named as Delsin Rowe. He's a 24-year-old who, after rescuing occupants from a fiery bus wreck, discovers that he suddenly has the ability to direct, manipulate and even transform into smoke.

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. Delsin, who has never been particularly respectful of authority, decides he's not going to go quietly.

Sucker Punch says the debut trailer has been created in-house using the game engine, which shows off some of the capabilities of PS4.

Look out for more on the game in the coming months.
