Turn the HUD on or off, and cap the game at 30 frames, too.

inFAMOUS: Second Son

An upcoming update for inFAMOUS: Second Son will add the ability to change the time of day, turn on and off the heads-up display, and cap the game at 30 frames per second, Sucker Punch announced.

Here are the details on each:

  • Change Time-of-Day - Once you beat the game, a new entry will appear on the options menu to allow you to select the time of day! A very popular request indeed, and one we’re excited to enable for you all.
  • HUD On/Off - Especially for those amazingly talented screenshot taking folks, we’re including an option to let you turn the HUD on and off.
  • Cap at 30FPS - Internally we prefer the unlocked frame rate, but we recognize that some players find it distressing. So we’ll provide a way to ensure the game is not bumping up over 30FPS, if that’s how you prefer to play.

Sucker Punch is trying to have the update out within the next two weeks.

    Awesome update!

    Pretty interesting that they are adding an option to cap the FPS. Don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like that in a console game. Honestly wouldn’t mind seeing more of that in the future on unlocked games.

    • DarthBrian

      Killzone:SF had one too I think.

      • Sevyne

        Oh? I didn’t know that. Well I hope devs keep doing that.

      • Unretributed

        I think the original Bioshock had that too on PS3.

  • Wolf Star

    This is amazing update :3

  • Elvick

    All my screenshots are now obsolete! No HUD ftw

  • DarkLegacy

    Cool update!

    Well that is kind of cool I guess. lol Does time naturally pass in the game though? I didn’t think it did.

    • Zancrow

      Nope.
      That’s the very reason they implemented it now.

        They could make it pass naturally too… but ok.

    sounds a little April Foolsy to me. I shall wait til tomorrow.

    I’m glad they added the ability to cap the frame rate.

  • Karysonson

    They couldnt do 60 fps so they make a 30 fps cap to limit you even more…….
    wat

    • uhawww

      You’d be surprised at the number of people who would rather play at a locked 30 as opposed to a fluctuating FPS. It was most likely their most requested feature

      • Karysonson

        I guess I can see where people are coming from with wanting a more consistent Fps

      • sunK1D

        30 or 60. No variable FPS pls.

  • Zackasaur

    I’ll totally use the first two.

    I like the free FPS.
