The Daily Five: Reasons to Buy inFamous: Second Son

March 17, 2014 | By | No Comments

Sucker Punch releases inFamous: Second Son this Friday exclusively for Sony’s PlayStation 4. Without a doubt this is the first must-have exclusive of this generation. Yes, we had Knack and Killzone: Shadow Fall at launch, but neither of those games carried with it the hype and anticipation that Second Son has. This isn’t too surprising considering how much PlayStation 3 owners loved the first two installments in the franchise. However, for those of you new to the PlayStation brand and new to the franchise, we’ve built a list of five reasons as to why you should buy inFamous: Second Son this Friday. Some of them may seem like small reasons, but they’re all part of the bigger picture.

The City


It’s beautiful, isn’t it? Sucker Punch has done a fantastic job creating a living, breathing city as an homage to Seattle. The draw distance at the start is incredible and the scope of the world we’re going to get to explore is quite astonishing. We really can’t believe this world even exists. We’ve visited this universe before as Cole and it was great and the city was expansive and offered us a lot of things to do, but this really looks like that next-gen step we’re all dying to take together.

Funny enough, our favorite part of the image above is the neon-lit owl. This latte house looks great in the .GIF and it’s going to look even better in-person when we can see it at full resolution. This is just the beginning guys. This is 6 months within release of the PlayStation 4. It’s only going to get better from here and if this .GIF wasn’t enough to reel you in, you need to take a look at the detail this game offers on the next page.
