inFAMOUS: Second Son: Two Time of Day Settings We Can’t (Yet?) Select Unveiled (Mild Spoilers)

on April 21, 2014 9:07 AM

The latest patch of inFAMOUS: Second Son allows us to select seven different times of day after clearing the game, but something always bugged me. Before release developers always told there were eight or more sky settings in the game.

Turns out that’s true, but we just can’t select at least two of them. Lead Tech Artist Jason Connell posted a few pictures of the skies he made on his personal portfolio, and two of them, named Vortex and Vandal are indeed not present in the newly introduced menu. You can see them below.

The Vandal sky setting is none other than what we see during the prologue of the game, and seems to be somewhere in the middle between Hazy Sunset and Candy Sunset. It’s very possible that the developers decided not to add it because having three different sunset settings was considered redundant.

The Vortex sky settings, is used during a boss battle. If you have finished the game, you know which one I’m talking about. If you haven’t, you don’t need to know.

I went ahead and asked Connell if there’s any plan to make those two beautiful skies he made available in the menu, and I’ll keep you posted if he answers. More options are always good to have.

Update: Connell replied to my question, and unfortunately we might not get to use those skies for our pictures:

Hi. I’m glad you like them, may be unlikely they will show up in an update. They are made differently than the other skies!
