Infamous Second Son patch coming to PlayStation Network April 17

The patch for Infamous Second Son, Sucker Punch Productions' open-world action adventure game, will be available to download via the PlayStation Network April 17, co-founder and producer Brian Fleming announced via the PlayStation Blog.

The patch for the PlayStation 4 title introduces the option to select the time of day from the game's option menu after completion, turn off the HUD and cap the game at 30 frames per second. Fleming adds that this is a cap, not a lock, and it "won't eliminate the rare instance of a dropped frame during gameplay." All settings will be reset to the game's default, however, when players restart the game.

"We chose to not disturb our game save file format with this patch in order get these features to you as quickly as we could," Fleming wrote.

In addition to the previously promised updates, the patch also includes bug fixes and tweaks to various gameplay options.

"If your controller runs out of batteries in the middle of gameplay, your game will pause," Fleming wrote. "Our art director pulled a hamstring scrambling to get his second controller mid-boss-battle, so we needed to fix this."

A new photo mode also allows players to take screenshots in-game when players have free reign of the camera. A tutorial of the new mode is available above.
