Infamous: First Light, the standalone DLC for Sucker Punch’s Infamous: Second Son is coming to the PS4 on August 26, according to a tweet from the developer.
You might remember the First Light trailer from its E3 2014 debut: the expansion puts players in the role of the super-powered Abigail “Fetch” Walker, a Conduit similar to the game’s hero, Delsin Rowe (she’s the one with the neon-based powers).
Sucker Punch explains why you’ll want to check out First Light:
“Played once again by the brilliantly talented Laura Bailey, Fetch is back — and her story is not an easy one to tell. There is heartache, drug abuse and abandonment. Playing as Fetch, you’ll experience the events that transform her into the conduit you met in Second Son. You’ll see her cope with life in Curdun Cay (the high alpine prison) after being captured by the DUP, and experience what happens when her brother Brent goes missing – and how far she will go to find him.
In First Light, you will be able to explore new environments, such as Curdun Cay itself and the beautiful snowy mountaines around it. You’ll also revisit the city of Seattle, this time through the lens of Fetch’s neon-tinted glasses. Of course, it wouldn’t be an inFAMOUS game without awesome powers. This time around, you’ll see firsthand that Fetch has her own flavor of neon that is unique to her character and tone.
In Second Son, we made great progress on our lighting engine, particle effects, and our ability to give characters richer personalities using facial motion capture techniques. We’ve continued to use these tools to not only develop Fetch more as a character, but also to bring you to new environments as well. And for those with a photographer’s eye, I’m pleased to confirm that Photo Mode is included in First Light. I’ve been super impressed by the quality level of screenshots shared with #PS4share on Twitter. The details that fans captured are impressive, so I’m excited to see what gets shared when people start playing!”
You can preorder First Light now for $15 in the PlayStation Store.
