nFamous: Second Son will launch digitally at midnight over on PSN, Sony’s European Community Manager has confirmed.
Sony’s Chris Owen confirmed the midnight launch on Twitter
today, stating that "the digital version of inFAMOUS Second Son will launch at midnight on Friday morning on the Store." Sadly though PlayStation 4 players outside of America are unable to access the pre-purchase option, meaning Australian digital gamers will have to wait until midnight to actually purchase the title.
In related inFamous news, Sucker Punch audio director Brad Meyers has taken to the PlayStation Blog
to reveal a further look at the audio behind inFamous: Second Son. In it, Meyers reveals the methods that the audio team took to capture all the specific power sound effects, including recordings of "fluorescent tubes, electromagnetic interference, and a very long induction coil" for the Neon power.
Another area we knew needed to come alive was the ambience. Since our game takes place in Seattle, what better way to capture the bustling city than running around with microphones, capturing the subtle nuances from birds, sirens, and car alarms, to rain and traffic? We took things to extreme measures with our ambient design, setting up unique audio events based on the neighborhood, the time of day, and whether or not Delsin or the D.U.P. is in control of a district.
