inFAMOUS Second Son Has A Day One Patch That Will Add About Six Extra Hours Of Gameplay. If You Pre-Ordered…
Usually when you hear “day one patch” it is a bad thing to hear but that it is not the case for inFAMOUS Second Son it would seem. Yes, there will be a day one patch for the game but it will be bringing more than just some tweaks and fixes to balance the game out. In fact this will be bringing five hours of extra game play for those who didn’t pre-order the game and an estimated six for those who did. All of this over a little bit of time though.
