In inFamous, Empire City is quarantined following the Ray Sphere explosion. Following the explosion, three major gangs emerge: the Reapers led by Sasha, the Dust Men led by Alden Tate and the Kessler-led First Sons. In the explosion, bike courier Cole MacGrath earns superpowers, which he uses to defeat the gangs and return Empire City to some of its former glory.[1]
