Sucker Punch hasn’t confirmed or denied the presence of multiplayer in Second Son. Despite being only a couple of months away from the game’s much anticipated release, we don’t know if it’ll have nothing but single player mode, online multiplayer or something similar to inFamous 2’s user generated content.
We still don’t know for sure, but the listing for the game on PlayStation’s Japanese website has dropped a bit of a hint. Tucked away, with the game’s other important information like developer and price, there’s the following Japanese text: オンライン：対応
That Japanese, according to Google Translate, means “Online: correspondence” which doesn’t make much sense. However, the part that means “correspondence” also means “support”. So the Japanese text appears to say that online is supported in inFamous: Second Son.
That still doesn’t tell us whether its some previously unannounced multiplayer mode or whether it might be a system similar to inFamous 2’s player-created missions. That listing is not there for single player games with no online component though, like Knack. So it’s reasonable to assume that it isn’t referring to sharing options or anything as sneaky as that. The same info panel also lists the number of players as “1” but don’t let that sway you – it says the same about Killzone: Shadow Fall.
