inFamous: Second Son hasn’t even been available for a day and already Sucker Punch is delivering the free content. Patch 1.01 will be adding 19 new episodic missions to uncover in the next-gen rendering of Seattle, and altogether, these new missions will add an additional 5 hours to the game’s running time.

Sucker Punch says these new missions will form the “Paper Trail” storyline, an “innovative online and in-game story arc” based on “web-based investigations.” New content will be delivered for six weeks directly into the the game, and  Sucker Punch recommends you visit before sitting down to enjoy its latest idea. Sounds like this storyline carries over into the real world.
