It has only been three months since inFAMOUS: Second Son was released as, arguably, the PlayStation 4’s first blockbuster exclusive and now at E3, Sony have announced that a standalone spin-off title is coming to the PlayStation Network.
In a similar manner as inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood, a spin-off is coming to the rebooted version of the franchise. Unlike the aforementioned case, inFAMOUS: First Light will focus on a side character, Abigail ‘Fetch’ Walker.
Laura Bailey will once again reprise her role voicing the character as she takes centre stage in her prequel tale that is described as filled with “heartache, drug abuse and abandonment.” As hinted at in the trailer, the title will contain some of her time spent captive in the high alpine prison, Curdun Cay, before seeing the lengths she will go to find her missing brother, Brent.
Sucker Punch are promising new locations to explore, not just the Seattle of Second Son. As already mentioned, Curdun Cay will be a location, as will the snowy mountain surrounding it.
Photo Mode also makes a return, which will come as welcome news to the ears of a fair share of gamers judging by its success in Second Son.
inFAMOUS: First Light will hit the PlayStation Store in August, it is a standalone game – so inFAMOUS: Second Son is not required to play it. However, Sucker Punch have promised some exclusive in-game content for owners of their existing PS4 game, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
