Second Son Update Incoming: Change Time of Day, HUD Off, 30FPS Option

Brian Fleming's Avatar + Posted by Brian Fleming on Apr 01, 2014 // Sucker Punch Productions

Ten days.

That’s how long it’s been since I went to the midnight launch of Second Son here in Bellevue, Washington (just outside Seattle). I must have talked to over 100 people there, and so many more on social media and forums, Twitter, NeoGAF, etc. since then. It’s been amazing to see the excitement and passion of inFAMOUS fans, new and old. I want to let you all know how much your enthusiasm and support means to us, how it renews us, and readies us to go try to make even better games in the future.

inFAMOUS Second Son

We also want you to know that we listen to your complaints. Some big, some small, but we take them all to heart. We never want to lose sight of how important it is that we listen to all of you. We can always be better.

So to say thanks, not just for all the support but also for your passionate requests to make the game better, we’ve started work on a few small features which we’ll be delivering in the weeks to come.

Change Time-of-Day

Once you beat the game, a new entry will appear on the options menu to allow you to select the time of day! A very popular request indeed, and one we’re excited to enable for you all.

HUD On/Off

Especially for those amazingly talented screenshot taking folks, we’re including an option to let you turn the HUD on and off.

Cap at 30FPS

Internally we prefer the unlocked frame rate, but we recognize that some players find it distressing. So we’ll provide a way to ensure the game is not bumping up over 30FPS, if that’s how you prefer to play.

Of course, our coders and QA team are working to try to identify and resolve key bugs, and we’ll look at incorporating important fixes in the patch too. And who knows… if we’re inspired enough, we may sneak a few other little things in too. Time will tell!

We’re all working hard to release these updates as soon as we can. Time-wise, the earliest we could have the patch and new features ready is about two weeks from now, so stay tuned for another update — we’ll let you know as soon as they’re ready to go live. Until then, keep fighting the D.U.P., keep sharing your awesome screenshots (#PS4share on Twitter), and enjoy your powers!

this game is awesome, easily the funnest game ive played i Very!!! long time. but im hoping to see that they make an update so you can turn on\off all the smudges and the screen when lights shine around you, like it on the screen the smudges and blurry affect of the camera when looking at lights, and i really like the outfit at the start of the game when your in the sick bay without the vest on so i hope the will give us that outfit i really like it. And i feel like there should be more powers i mean concrete is pretty useless since you cant use it through out the game story but sadly only for free roaming, but my fav powers in order would have to be NeoN, Video, Smoke, Concrete but yeah thanks Sucker Punch For this amazing game Ive Completed it 3 Times so Far And have no intention to stop there, keep making cool stuff for inFamous cause you guys know your stuff!!! :)

I had a question. I’ve beaten the game on the good side and would like to start on the evil side. However, I don’t want to lose the progress in the Paper Trail. If i switch over and start the evil side, will i lose my progress in the Paper Trail missions? On a side note, this is the best Infamous game in the series, my opinion. The game is beautiful to look at and so much fun to play. I do wish it was a little longer. But the fact that it was so addicting from the start probably didn’t help make the game last much longer either. LoL.

Just beat the game yesterday sadly still havn’t 100% and gotten the DLC. Anyways it’s definitely going to be my most replayed InFamous game. Since the game feels a bit shorter then the other two if I decide to replay it I know I can finish it quickly. Similar to the Pikmin series where a lot of the fun is doing better then your previous runs. I think some sort of New Game Plus where you get to keep all your powers would be cool but it might be hard to implement.
Loved all the characters in this game to besides Reggie they all had cool back stories that made you feel for them. I thought Eugene’s was really nice for you guys to do for the gaming community.
Can’t wait to see what Sucker Punch comes out with next!

Hello.
It is great that you are going to provide us with fps cap option as it may solve the micro stuttering caused by frame drops issues.
But how about texture/object pop-up. Draw distance is very low :(
I mean this issue:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRZFNQ-EuDY

Is this going to be solved as well?

Can you comment over ps4 pop-up issue and close draw? I ntices Killzone is suffering the same problem, I hope it is not a nature of ps4 and therefore will not stick to other ps4 games in the future :(
I would prefer lack of details on texture than this sudden object draw.
However, the same comes to people and cars that suddenly disappears.

What about ps4 that is unable to deliver 60fps in 1080p resolution.
Is the console really that weak?

No matter what, no matter graphical glitches and bugs, the game is very good.
Thank you suckers!

This is me checking in again cause I didn’t get my question answered.

@SuckerPunchProd Thanks for listening and giving us these updates, but is it really that hard to have a daytime/nighttime cycle added in #inFAMOUSSecondSon?

I mean Siderman2 the videogame had a daytime/nighttime cycle and that game came out in 2004. You guys said it yourselfs you guys wanted to set the bar for games on PS4, but I hope no dev copy you guys in making their open-world game without a daytime/nighttime cycle(IT’S WHAT’S EXPECTED FOR A OPEN-WORLD GAME). It’s the standard.

Like, I can’t think of one openworld game that doesn’t have a daytime/nighttime cycle in it expect #inFAMOUSSecondSon

If they wanted 30fps they should’ve bought an XBox one! Keep up the good work Sucker Punch. The game could’ve been longer though for an exclusive next gen release, so I’m looking forward to some future DLC.

I wish there would be an option to go back to Salmon Bay in the beginning after you beat the game

I beat the game 100% but the “change time of day” option is not there. Any idea? Also it was a fantastic game.
