You Can Access the Second Part of inFAMOUS: Second Son's Free DLC Right Now

Posted by Kell Andersen

Papers please

You may not know it, but recently released superhero sim inFAMOUS: Second Son has six weeks worth of free DLC incoming. While some might decry this as a calculated attempt at keeping the game's disc in your tray, they're probably also the sort of person who hates candy, puppies, rainbows and all other things universally regarded as empirically brilliant.

Regardless, the new Paper Trail missions see you searching over the city of Seattle in an attempt to solve a sinister murder. Interestingly, the free downloadable extra will also require you to trawl real life websites to solve the case. If you need reminding, the first section — which released in a patch last week — can be accessed by returning to Fetch's billboard hidey-hole, while the second can be found on the bridge connecting the city's two islands.

Did you play the first Paper Trail mission, or do you plan to wait until the full saga releases? Moreover, are you a fan of this style of free post release content, or would you have preferred for the missions to have shipped with the game? Go on a manhunt in the comments section below.

Hmmm. I'm still working on the main quest (not as much time as I'd like) but I think I will wait until it is pretty far along. I think I heard somewhere that the first part of it had glitches, so I want them to iron it out the best they can.

I started part 2 last night. Still trying to unlock the dead guys phone. This is the best ARG implementation in a game iv ever seen. I love it.

Sweet. The whole website and conduit test they've set up is pretty sweet. I loom forward to exploring the rest of it.




I'm 32% in to my expert/evil playthrough, still have my 'done everything' 100% save for finishing off the Cole and Paper Trail missions.

I'll hang on to it, enjoying it a lot. More is good.

Until that Han Solo table hits for Zen2 at least.

How far into the game do I need to be to access the first and second DLC missions? I just cleared Queen Anne of DUP control by finishing the District Showdown and received my first Fast Travel point. Can I access either of the DLC yet? I assume each subsequent DLC mission requires you to be further into the game?

@JaxonH the first paper trail cannot be accessed til you get neon, I believe. I think I saw Coles legacy pt 1 shortly after Queen Anne.



ztpayne7 said:

@JaxonH the only concern I have with the game is I feel like it's gonna be shorter than the other games. I feel like I'm almost towards the end, but I want a lot more. Still have tons of side things to do.

But yeah. I was super hyped for the game, and for the most part I feel like it has met expectations.

Accessed it last night. Wasn't sure about this paper trail stuff at first, how it would work out, but it's great so far. Looking forward to the next four weeks of content.


Unfortunately, it is short. That's my only gripe with the game. I'm thinking Sucker Punch was a little rushed to get this one out the door so the end product, while great, isn't exactly that huge, game-changing leap to next-gen, outside of the awesome visuals. Still a must-buy for current PS4 owners though. I think I read on this website that SP's next game isn't going to be another inFamous but hopefully there will be another at some point and hopefully the devs will make the main story a bit longer (I'd say bump it up to at least 28 missions from the current 16) and add some more interactivity to the open world. We should be able to go inside buildings and such.

I really really like the paper trail missions and having to use a PC to do it. it reminds me of the days I had to put pen to paper to accomplish old NES and SMS games for some reason. something in Second Son we will never forget because it's so different and requires me to adjust my fat old ass from the chair to access the website



Gamer83 said:


Well, for one, the other inFamous games were longer. It's not anything that ruins the experience but the game is short. Don't really see what's 'omg' about saying that.




I felt the length was spot on personally.

Longer than it is would've felt like a grind to me to play through again as evil.

Releasing further story weekly is a nice move for those who want more.
