InFamous: Second Son will miss the PlayStation 4 launch by a couple of months, but it was on show at the PS4 review event in New York overnight, and these new screens and details arrived as a result.

The PlayStation Blog reports the game’s playable demo begins when protagonist Delsin and his brother Reggie, a police officer, are stopped at a Department of Unified Protection security checkpoint.

As well as melee attacks with a chain, Delsin has access to superpowers. His early powers are all smoke based and include shotgun-like smoke blasts, a ground-pounding area of effect attack, and teleporting around obstacles in smoke form. A variant of this power can be used in traversal, launching off cars.

Delsin can also absorb neon from signs to become a streak of light, using this to climb walls.

Take a look at the new InFamous: Second Son screenshots below. It’s due on PS4 in February.
