'InFamous: Second Son' (PS4) To Get Day-One Patch, New Content - New Screens

by Rainier on March 20, 2014 @ 2:57 p.m. PDT

InFamous: Second Son is the latest installment in the super powered action franchise featuring an all-new protagonist, Delsin Rowe, with all new powers, and set in a new city.

After rescuing people from a bus wreck, 24-year-old Delsin Rowe discovers that he can control and transform into smoke. Could he have absorbed this power from one of the passengers of the wreckage?

It's been seven years since the last game, and the world has changed. Anyone who shows signs of being a "bio-terrorist" is handed to the Department of Unified Protection (DUP). Delsin is caught in the dragnet.

The path, gameplay and story depend on decisions that you make along the way. As you play, you'll explore many of Seattle's landmarks.

Day One patches are not exactly a novelty anymore and InFamous: Second Son will be no exception. The 300Mb patch will add balance tweaks, graphical improvements, and adjustments to the game (boss fights for example), but also open up 19 "free" new 'Paper Trail' missions, for a total of about five extra hours of gameplay. This bundle will further explain why Seattle has been occupied by the D.U.P.

These missions will be spread out over six weeks, with pieces unlocking every week, and will have you explore the world of InFamous: Second Son in-game as well as on the web.
