Day One Patch Gives Second Son Five Hours of Content


Infamous: Second Son  releases tomorrow and like most games these days, it will have a day one patch of around 300 mb.

But alongside the standard fixes the patch will include, it will also include over five hours of gameplay not on the disc.

The additional content will include not only the Cole’s Legacy DLC that is free to players that pre-ordered Second Son , but will begin a series of sidequests related to the Paper Trail  storyline.

Sucker Punch describes Paper Trail  as an “innovative online and in-game story arc” that will delve into the backstory of the Department of Unified Protection, the antagonist organization of Second Son .

Paper Trail  will be connected to, the site Sucker Punch used in creating a meta game for Second Son , through which players will be able to access new content for the six weeks following the game’s release.
