Sony made the new trailer for inFamous: First Light part of their Gamescom conference, and now they’re opening up a bit more about what exactly is included in this first DLC pack for inFamous: Second Son.
To begin, First Light is a prequel and takes place about two years prior to Delsin smashing his way on to the scene. You play as the neon-weilding Fetch from Second Son (you knew that), and you’ll experience progression very similar to that of Delsin when you take the reigns. Fetch has her own side quests to complete separate from her critical path, and she even has her own version of blast shards to collect, which are used to upgrade her skills and powers in the same way it worked for Delsin.
Although Fetch’s story is said to take around five hours to complete, only a portion of Seattle will be playable, which is likely a limitation caused by making the DLC playable without Second Son.
After you finish the story, you’re not done with First Light. It also includes a brand spanking new arena mode, where you take on multiple waves of enemies inside Curden Cay, which you may remember is a prison built specifically for conduits. As you complete these waves, the layout of the arena changes, and the enemies and objectives become more difficult.
The end goal is to clear every level in the most efficient way possible, which grants you a score that shows up on a leaderboard for all your friends and the rest of the world to see. As a nice little touch on the side, Sucker Punch added the ability to play through the arena as Delsin, but only if you own Second Son. If that wasn’t enough, they also included an entire collection of new trophies, including a platinum.
inFamous: First Light launches the week after next on August 27th in the UK, and the day prior in North America.
