Infamous: First Light officially set for August 26th

Following an unconfirmed PlayStation Store listing that claimed standalone DLC expansion, Infamous: First Light would be releasing on the PlayStation Store for PlayStation 4 on August 26th, Sucker Punch has just confirmed the release date via Twitter. They’ve also clarified that the expansion will arrive for Europe the following day, on August 27th.

Infamous- First Light - Gameplay 1Announced during Sony’s E3 2014 press keynote, Infamous: First Light stars Abigail “Fetch” Walker, a supporting character from PlayStation 4 exclusive, Infamous: Second Son, who has the ability to harness and manipulate neon light energy. The expansion allows players to play through a prequel story involving Fetch’s escape from super-powered prison, Curdun Cay, while taking revenge on the people who captured her and led to the murder of her brother.

Infamous: First Light doesn’t require players to own a copy of Infamous: Second Son, similar to other recent standalone DLC expansions such as Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon or New Super Luigi U, as well as a previous standalone expansion for the Infamous series, Infamous: Festival of Blood. Those with Infamous: Second Son save files on their PlayStation 4 however will receive exclusive content in Infamous: First Light, though it’s currently unclear what exactly these perks will entail.

Infamous: First Light is already available for pre-order on the PlayStation Store. It will be one of the first PlayStation 4 game offerings that can be pre-loaded in advance of its release date, and immediately unlocked to play at midnight without any installation mandate upon its authorized public release. The standalone expansion is priced at $14.99.Infamous- First Light - Gameplay 2
