Releasing February next year, inFAMOUS: Second Son is one of Sony’s premiere launch window exclusives for PlayStation 4, and Sony’s just revealed that, following the trend of so many other AAA titles, the game will be receiving some special editions, in this case being of the Collector’s and Limited varieties. You can get the the Limited Edition by pre-ordering or already having pre-ordered in the past, and you can get the Collector’s Edition for the bumped up price of $79.99 while supplies lasts.

As potential later-adopters will certainly be a bit irritated to find out, both special editions come with exclusive DLC which will be (arbitrarily?) kept from those who purchase the standard edition, as ”
it’s only available through these offers here.” Both have altered covers as well, the Limited Edition with a foil version of the original artwork and the Collector’s Edition with special, exclusive special artwork plus a pretty box.

The exclusive DLC goes by the name of Cole’s Legacy and is said to ”
bridge the gap” between inFAMOUS 2 and inFAMOUS: Second Son, which, for those unaware, features a different protagonist than its two series predecessors. The description given for Cole’s Legacy is a bit small, so here’s a transcription:

“Play through a series of missions to uncover what happened between the devastating events of
Infamous 2 and Infamous Second Son. Complete the mission and unlock Cole’s jacket in-game.”

And without further ado, here are the images shown by Sony alongside the reveal:

Complementing the bits I’ve already explained, the Collector’s Edition has a few other trinkets that may be of interest to
inFAMOUS‘s more enthusiastic fans. According to the bullet points on the image below, inFAMOUS: Second Son Collector’s Edition comes with a “premium replica of Delsin’s beanie,” a “set of 8 pins from Delsin’s in-game vest,” an “official DUP patch,” and “exclusive digital content: Delsin’s ‘Legendary’ in-game vest” alongside a retail copy of the game itself. Here’s the picture:

Pre-order DLC—really DLC of any kind, but
especially pre-order DLC—is something I’m always incredibly skeptical of, but if that’s your thing, then it looks like you’re going to want to pre-order Sucker Punch’s inFAMOUS: Second Son on PlayStation 4. Are any of you planning to?

Our Verdict

Barry Herbers
I write editorials here at Gamnesia and occasionally some news (though far less often than I used to). Here's some of my work, long-form game essays, if you have any interest in that sort of stuff: The Amount of Content in a Game Has Nothing to do with its Price A Game's Atmosphere is Defined by its Mechanics, Not its Aesthetic The Witcher 3's Introduction is Terribly Paced and Too Restrictive of its Players I'm looking forward to The Last Guardian (had it pre-ordered since 2010), Rime, Night in the Woods, and Vane. If I had a niche, it would probably be the somewhat higher fidelity indie games, as take up most of the spots on that list. I'm also developing a no-budget video game with a friend, and you can follow me on Twitter (@TheVioletBarry) to hear about that and anything else I feel like saying. Film, games, it's that sort of stuff.
