Original Story: According to an updated page on the PlayStation Store, InFamous: Second Son‘s standalone DLC First Light will be launching on August 26.
When the DLC was first announced at E3 earlier this month, the listing, first spotted by an IGN user, narrows it down to a specific day.
It’s possible that the date is simply a placeholder but also unlikely, since those are usually the first or last day of a given month. Also telling is the fact that that Sony hasn’t pulled or revised the date nearly 24 hours after it was first noticed. Still, until we hear official word from Sony, nothing’s final.
First Light serves as a prequel to Second Son, putting you in the role of the tough-talkin’, neon-shootin’ Fetch Walker, who played a supporting role in the main game. While you don’t need a copy of Second Son to purchase and play First Light, Sucker Punch has said those that do own it will gain access to exclusive new content in the main game.
