Cole's Legacy DLC for Infamous: Second Son revealed

Content will cover what happened between the events of Infamous 2 and Infamous: Second Son.

by

Sony today announced two new Infamous: Second Son bundles that will be available when the game launches in February 2014 exclusively on the PlayStation 4.

The Infamous: Second Son Limited Edition includes the previously announced in-game vests for protagonist Delsin Rowe, as well as the Cole's Legacy DLC.

This expansion, which will not be available for purchase separately, will explain what happened between the events of Infamous 2 and Infamous: Second Son.

"Cole MacGrath’s actions in New Marias set in motion a chain of events leading to the now forceful occupation of Seattle by the oppressive Department of Unified Protection. Cole’s Legacy bridges this gap in time with a series of missions Delsin Rowe must complete that reveal unique insights into how the world of Infamous: Second Son came to be."

All past and future preorders for Infamous: Second Son will be automatically upgraded to the limited edition at no extra cost

The $80 Infamous: Second Son Collector's Edition contains a copy of the game, an exclusive cover, an in-game vest, a replica of Delsin's beanie, a set of pins, decals, a DUP patch, and the Cole's Legacy DLC.

Infamous: Second Son is currently in development at Sucker Punch Productions. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

"This expansion, which will not be available for purchase separately,"

So if you don't get one of these special editions, you won't be getting the extra content?! That's BULLSHIT!!! This means I'm going to have to buy the game before I even buy the console!! How fucked up is that!?!

I'm interested in the DLC, but don't give a damn about all the stuff that is coming with the CE. I hope the DLC will be available on its own.

If you want to put an end to stuff like this then stop falling for it and supporting it. Wallet does the most talking.

people seem to be missing this, thers 3 editions, standard, LE, and collector's, if you pre-order the game u get the LE at not extra charge, that comes with the DLC (the missions, vest, and cole's jacket) so why are people complaining, just cuz they have to pre-order?

Should have been included in the game. It's a incomplete story without it.

"This expansion, which will not be available for purchase separately...."

Yeah, yeah. At least not straight away.

"All past and future preorders for Infamous: Second Son will be automatically upgraded to the limited edition at no extra cost"

Interesting. So it sounds like this limited edition will be the basic version of the game upon initial release. It'd be daft not to go for it.

urgh, pre-order bonuses need to die. 

I'm not against DLC, but i hate this forceful push for people to pre-order.

in a weird twist, i guess it would be recommended to play the DLC before the actual game?

The console it's meant to be played on isn't even out yet for christ's sakes.

Good: Single Player DLC

Bad: Day one DLC

Sounds like this should've already been in the game to bridge the gap. Don't like the sound of it

Well, it sounds like a decent value - the game is like $60 alone, and you're getting DLC that they'd probably charge you $10 or $15 for, a beanie you'd probably pay at least $10 for, and some other junk - probably a reasonable price at $80.

Still, I dislike that we're talking about DLC for this game already.  But what are you gonna do?

I don't think I'd buy this special edition of the game personally, since I just want the game.  I might get the DLC later on.

Guess this gives a good reason to preorder then.

Damn, DLC announced before the game even comes out....I hate that shit so much. So happy I used my $400 to do minor upgrades to my PC then put money down on a PS4. This DLC shit is getting way out of hand and is only getting worse.

Hope the dlc is available later, don't want to spend $20 more for a set of pogs and some dlc.

You really need better editors...a sentence withouth verb the subtitle: 

Content will cover happened between the events of Infamous 2 and Infamous: Second Son.

and its New Marais not New Marias:

Cole MacGrath’s actions in New Marias set in motion a chain of events leading to the now forceful occupation of Seattle by the oppressive Department of Unified Protection.

Regarding the DLC, very low Sucker Punch

I'm happy to hear the preorders have been updated, but it seems a little iffy to make people who didn't preorder pay extra just to figure out what the hell is going on.  I'd imagine they explain everything well enough and the dlc is just a little extra but they way it's described still seems a little off.


Either way I'm very excited for this game to be released, I just wish that it was a launch title.

You'd better get your pre-order in then. : P

DLC announced before the game's release. Modern day marketing in gaming just blows my mind.

Pretty funny. The connecting story between Infamous 2 and this one is considered DLC. Why not just start off with it ?

DLC before the game is out...would it really hurt for devs to wait to announce this?

Already offering DLC months before the release! Still looking forward to get this game somewhere in a couple of years. 80 dollars seems a bit cheap for a real vest, beanie etc?

@visionedorange  

Because normally DLC like this is available to buy separately after the game is released. The DLC here will not be. So if you don't pre-order it, you aren't getting it. Simple as!

Which is annoying because this is such an important part of the story of the overall series. The end of the last game was left wide open. And only certain peolpe are going to get closure for it.

@shingui5 Like it or not, I have a feeling they're here to stay. From the developer's standpoint, the more sales they can lock in during development, the better. Think of it kind of like the trends in crowd funding games. "If we get x number of backers then we can make an even better game." It's easier to justify investing more money in a project when you can show there is already interest in it.

@josh7845 I was thinking exactly the same thing. I'm not opposed to DLC, I have bought quite a lot. However, I do hate been asked to pre-order DLC or buy a Season Pass when it isn't clear what the DLC is, let alone if it's any good. 

It's all a bit of a buzzkill for the console launches.

@frylock1987 only for the limited edition. if you don't want to pay for the dlc....................don't get the limited edition. Its not being forced on you in any way shape or form.

@Scorpion1813 You do realize that people will post their gameplay of the DLC on youtube and twitch. So even if you miss out on the DLC you still can get the closure. In infamous 2 I went good side and youtubed the bad ending because I was too lazy to replay again and got my closure.

@gabrielperry @shingui5 I have feeling people will come up with a way to access it through unofficial means. I mean, day one DLC is usually on the disc, right? Who's to say something like a PS4 jailbreak a code from a cheat engine won't give people access to it later? I know it can be done because there were warp to legendary Pokemon island codes for Pokemon Emerald version, which allowed people to get Deoxys and Mew without taking their game anywhere or trading with someone who had them. At least Sony should consider the possibility of giving late PS4 adopters the change to get it officially over resorting to those measures.
