Tomorrow’s inFamous: Second Son patch introduces Photo Mode

Posted on April 16, 2014 AT 12:15pm

Earlier this month, Sucker Punch announced that they were working on a patch for inFamous: Second Son that would allow players to change the time of day, disable the HUD, and cap the game at 30 frames per second. That’ll be out tomorrow, but it’s bringing a few additional surprises, too.

The biggest is Photo Mode, a suite of tools designed to make taking cool looking screenshots with the Share button even easier. Once it’s been enabled in the options menu, you’ll be able to click the left stick to pause the game, then adjust the camera position, zoom, and depth of field. You can even throw some Instagram-style color filters on top of it, if you’re into that sort of thing. Judging by the above walkthrough video, it’s every bit as deep and useful as it sounds.

The other previously unannounced changes are a little less glamorous. In addition to a handful of bug fixes and localization tweaks, the game will now pause when the controller runs out of batteries, and you’ll get an alert letting you know whether or not you’re eligible to earn the “Unstoppable” trophy when you switch the game onto the expert difficulty setting. (Apparently, some folks were setting it too far into the prologue, playing through the entire campaign, and then not getting it. Bummer.) Like I said, not exactly flashy, but solid additions nonetheless.

All these fixes and additions should be pleasing a lot of people, too—Sony recently announced that Second Son reached 1 million copies sold in just six days.
