Seattle is the city in which  Infamous: Second Son and Infamous: First Light take place, based on the real city.

Role in Second Son

Taking place seven years after the events of Infamous and Infamous 2, the Department of Unified Protection locks down the city of Seattle to make sure the events of Empire City and New Marais never happen again.[1]

The game's main protagonist, Delsin Rowe, grew up just outside Seattle, in a Akomish Reserve across the 520 bridge in Washington, and after he gained his powers saving a "Bioterrorist" named Hank Daughtry from a burning bus, Delsin had to enter the city to get Concrete powers to save his tribe.[2]

The game takes place in Seattle, and Delsin acquires Neon, Video and Concrete powers within the city limits.

The 520 Bridge is a concrete and steel bridge that Brooke Augustine destroyed during the start of Infamous: Second Son. It is located near Salmon Bay.

It is a long bridge lined with many wrecked cars. Some parts of it have fallen into the water; some are unstable and will collapse if walked on.

This was where Delsin Rowe first acquired the Car Boost and Smoke Thrusters ability. After leaving Salmon Bay, Delsin was to make his way across the wrecked bridge to find his way into Seattle. He had to use his newly acquired abilities to make it safely across. Once he made it to the end, he met up with his brother Reggie Rowe. Here, Reggie almost fell to his death when he nearly found himself dangling from a ledge, but Delsin managed to save him.

  • This is the first real life city where an InFamous game has been set in. Although, locations have been changed to make it more fitting for the Game's Map, e.g. The Crocodile.
  • Although this is the first real life city to be featured in the series, Washington D.C. has been mentioned several times in earlier entries throughout the franchise, and Abigail is from New Jersey, although she doesn't say which city she's from.
  • Like in Infamous, trains are present, but now are monorails.
  • Sucker Punch Productions co-founder Chris Zimmerman has revealed that many of the pedestrians in the game are real Seattleites, and that Sucker Punch held auditions for ordinary citizens to get 3D scanned and their faces put in-game.
  • As First Light reuses assets from Second Son, many of the steam vents, and radio dishes Delsin could use to get around the city are present in the DLC, although they are not usable as Abigail is a Neon-based conduit only.
  • Many of the city's stores and businesses reference previous Sucker Punch games before Second Son was released.
    • There is an electronics store chain named Cole McG's Electronics, a reference to Cole MacGrath and his electric powers.
    • In the public playground, there is a mural depicting three cartoon raccoons; one carrying a bag of money, one wearing a blue-hat and a third carrying a brown and gold cane. Next to the mural are crude graffiti pictures of Sly, Bentley and Murray.
    • In the Lantern District, there is a bank called Cooper and MacGrath, named after Sly Cooper and the aforementioned deceased Cole MacGrath.
    • A gas-station in the Lantern District is named Panda King Gas, named after the Sly Cooper character of the same name.
