Infamous: Second Son
Sony Entertainment Europe

The PS4 exclusive Title, Infamous: Second Son, has now received a Day One patch, which adds 19 new missions into the game. This means that players are being treated to over five hours of additional content.

VideoGamer goes on to add that new episodic story missions will be added each week to form a new 'Paper Trail' storyline, which is a side-story that the developer calls as an "innovative online and in-game story arc".

It will aim at letting players explore and experience the full story behind the D.U.P.'s occupation of Seattle through the 19 new missions, apart from a series of "web-based investigations".

Interactive Content on Multiple Platforms

Players will be treated to fresh content each week for six weeks and it will be delivered directly via the game. Apart from this, the game's developer, Sucker Punch, is asking gamers to check out, since it offers additional gameplay and a back story to the world of Second Son, thereby allowing players to fill in the gaps.

Apart from Paper Trail, the 300mb update also contains the Cole's Legacy Content Pack, which will be available for free to customers who pre-ordered the game.

The update also contains tweaks, improvements and graphical improvements. Have a look the Full Patch Notes below.

Control inFamous Second Son With Your Eyes

Colin Moriarty, in a report for IGN, spoke about this recent experience at the Game Developers Conference, where he was able to control Infamous: Second Son with his eyes on a PlayStation 4 was an SMI camera.

"It sounds strange – and it is – but this technology absolutely, positively worked", he said. "Before long, I had Delsin dashing around, using the DualShock 4's left analog stick and triggers while using my eyes to rotate the camera. If I wanted to go left, all I needed to do was look where I wanted to go, and the camera panned as Delsin ran in the proper direction. It was a staggering display of what PlayStation's tech gurus are working on in secret."
