Sucker Punch has released a day-one patch for inFamous: Second Son that’s sure to make fans and newcomers alike happy, as the patch will add 19 new missions to the game, which is about 5hrs of additional gameplay.
The content forms part of a new ‘Paper Trail’ storyline, a side-story described by the developer as an “innovative online and in-game story arc” that sees players attempting to discover the full story behind the D.U.P.’s occupation of Seattle through a series of 19 new missions and corresponding “web-based investigations”.
Players will be given access to new content each week for six weeks, delivered directly via the game and, Sucker Punch suggests, enjoyyourpower.com. The content is said to have been co-developed by Sucker Punch and ARG company 42 Entertainment, and provides additional gameplay and backstory on the world of Second Son.
On top of Paper Trail, the 300mb update also includes the Cole’s Legacy Content Pack available for free to pre-order customers, as well as a variety of tweaks and improvements, including tweaks made to the difficulty, increased pedestrian and traffic density, and graphical improvements.
