InFamous: Second Son – Day One Patch Adds New Missions, 5 Hours of Additional Gameplay

Sucker Punch has detailed its plans for post-launch content for Infamous: Second Son, which begins with a day one title update that will introduce a series of new episodic story missions.

The update will grant players an additional 5 hours of gameplay time but the content doesn’t end just there. New content will be released for players each week for six weeks, that will form a new “Paper Trail” storyline where players will discover the full story behind the D.U.P.’s occupation of Seattle.

In total there will be 19 new missions that will form the side-story, which is being described by Sucker Punch as an “innovative online and in-game story arc.”
