inFamous Second Son runs at 60 FPS on PS5, allows save transfer

The developers at Sucker Punch have confirmed that not one, but two of their games from the PlayStation 4 library have been enhanced for PS5.

We already knew that Ghost of Tsushima would receive a patch boosting the game’s framerate on Sony’s next-gen console. What we didn’t know is that smoke-belching superhero sequel, inFamous Second Son, would also get a PS5 upgrade.

According to Sucker Punch, Second Son will run at a silky 60 FPS on PlayStation 5 while also benefiting from improved loading times.

For those who never got around to playing inFamous back on PS4, you’ll get immediate access to Second Son and a superb collection of other games included with your PlayStation Plus subscription. See below for the full PS+ Collection list.

When we reviewed inFamous Second Son at launch, here’s what we had to say:

While the narrative might not have the same impact as previous games, it’s somewhat more of a down-to-earth tale of an ordinary man with extraordinary powers, and that’s an exciting new direction for the series to take.

We recently took a look back at 10 years of inFamous, reflecting on the series and discussing a potential comeback in the future.

  1. I really enjoyed Second Son on PS4, it looked and played awesome. I’m just surprised i’ve never gottten around to replaying it .. yet.

    • It’s definitely one of the console’s most underrated exclusives, simply because it was one of the earliest.

      Hopefully a lot of people go back and play it now it’s in the PS5’s PS+ Collection.

  2. I wonder if this would apply to First Light, too.
