Written by: / / 4 Comments

The verdict is out and it’s very good indeed: While inFamous: Second Son may not be absolutely perfect, it’s a brilliant showcase of the PlayStation 4’s abilities, and the talent of Sucker Punch, and is more than a worthy addition to your PS4 collection.

Don’t trust those words above? Then maybe you’ll trust Tom’s inFamous: Second Son review. He says the game features “beautiful visuals, fluid controls and an engaging narrative,” and that’s not even the whole of it!


In a day one inFamous: Second Son patch, however, developer Sucker Punch aims to add even more things to do in and around the city of Seattle with a reported extra five hours of content, for free, with nineteen new missions to complete while discovering the other side of the story behind the game’s antagonistic faction, the DUP. This new content will be delivered over the next six weeks and will appear directly in the game.

The patch is said to weigh in at 300MB, and in addition to the extra ‘Paper Trail’ missions contains a few improvements for the game overall – find out what’s included in the first inFamous: Second Son patch in the full notes below:
