30 frames cap, day-night change, photo mode, and more.

inFAMOUS: Second Son

A new inFAMOUS: Second Son update launching tomorrow will bring the ability to disable the HUD, change the game time to day or night, and cap the frame rate at 30 frames per second.

The update will also introduce a new photo mode, which will allow you to use a “suite” of internal tools (such as setting depth of field) to take better screenshots.

Other additions include:

  • A handful of localization text changes, and a couple of fixes for rare crashes in the game (Thanks to all of you who uploaded reports on those, they were extremely helpful!).
  • If your controller runs out of batteries in the middle of gameplay, your game will pause. Our art director pulled a hamstring scrambling to get his second controller mid-boss-battle, so we needed to fix this.
  • If you’re choosing expert difficulty, we let you know within the options dialog if you’re qualified for the “Unstoppable” trophy the moment you opt in.

Watch a video of the update in action below.

Thanks, PlayStation Blog.

    The photo mode is pretty awesome. Can’t wait to see what people come up with.

      People do some really lovely stuff with that in ACIV: Black Flag.

      So this is definitely going to yield some stunning results from our virtual photographers.

        Wait, that’s in ACIV too? Sweet! I’ll have to fiddle around with the game more to figure it out.

        Rayman Legends has it as well, it’s super nice.

    I’m still waiting for a price drop :/

    • Paul Rodriguez

      The game has a while to go before a price drop. Sony has no reason to do so this early.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Especially since it’s apparently selling rather well.

  • Paul Rodriguez

    I need to go back and play the game. I bought Second Son the day it came out and only played about 40 minutes.

    • Bobby Jennings

      Same here.

  • Elvick

    Photo mode! <3

  • DarkLegacy

    Can’t wait to use the update. My favourite one is Photo Mode. Really intrested in using that :3

  • shogunknight

    This is a very impressive feature for the game, truly

  • SuperLuigi

    Beat this game yesterday. 2 is still my favorite but I love the whole series. I’ll use this feature on my evil playthrough.
