Infamous and Injustice leading the line for PlayStation Plus freebies in December / January

Sony have revealed the leading lights of their PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection across the next couple of months, with Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition and Secret Ponchos coming to PS4 in December, and Infamous: First Light and The Swapper replacing them in January.

Injustice, despite being a last-gen title, marks the first triple-A appearance in the PS4's monthly freebie collection, and it'll be interesting to see hoiw Secret Ponchos stacks up on consoles. You can click here to see the PC version in action, but it's been a little sparse. Hopefully its release on PS4 will garner a bigger audience.

Infamous: First Light is a cracking standalone expansion, and a great way to test the waters for Second Son, and you can read my review of it here, and The Swapper is an absolutely brilliant, atmospheric puzzle platformer. Looks like PS4 owners are in for a good, wallet-friendly Christmas.

VIDEO | What's New in Infamous: First Light?

Infamous: First Light is out in the US today, and our review went live earlier. Here's what we said about the game:

Infamous First Light packs a whole bunch of content in at a decent price, and fleshes out Second Son's most interesting character in fine fashion, with a sibling story that tugs at the heartstrings thanks to another great performance from Bailey. It's an extension, perhaps, more than an expansion -- more of the same sort of thing, but with a slightly different flavour -- but given how much fun Second Son was, that's no bad thing.

But if you're still uncertain whether or not to buy the standalone prequel to Second Son, here's a little look in more depth at some of the changes you can expect to find playing as Fetch rather than Delsin, along with a video of the game's opening 10 minutes.

Infamous: First Light Review | Go Fetch

I had a blast with Infamous: Second Son. For me, it was probably the best game in the series thus far, a polished experience that did the basics incredibly well, delivered some cracking performances from its leading stars, and dazzled the senses with a gorgeous Seattle sandbox and plenty of interesting abilities. It didn't seek to really break new ground or reinvent the wheel, but Second Son was supremely satisfying because Sucker Punch managed to nail things where they counted -- combat, traversal, scale, story. Would it have been nice to have Seattle live and breathe a little more rather than simply being an obviously gamified sandbox? Perhaps. But frankly I was having too much fun to really care.

Given the hot topic of female protagonists in the gaming industry, it's not surprising really that Sucker Punch were asked in the run up to Second Son's release about the possibility of a female playable protagonist. That questioning only became stronger when we were introduced to Abigail "Fetch" Walker -- a Neon-powered Conduit with some serious baggage in her past and a heavy chip on her shoulder. That Sucker Punch followed through and have given us a fat slab of Fetch's backstory to play through here in First Light is admirable.

More importantly, it's pretty damn good.

Laura Bailey is back to voice Fetch, and once again, the strength of Sucker Punch's performance capture really comes through. Anyone familiar with her story in Second Son will already know the end state of this prequel, set two years before the events of the original game. Fetch is making a living on the streets with her brother in First Light, making ends meet by doing unsavoury jobs for unsavoury people. By the time we meet her in Second Son, she's lost a huge deal, not least a sense of control, and First Light tells the story of how she goes from being a woman trying to hide her powers to being a Conduit fixer and assassin, to eventually becoming a powerful renegade filled with rage and anger.

Standalone DLC Like Infamous: First Light Must Become The New Norm

Standalone DLC Like Infamous: First Light Must Become The New Norm

Games are expensive. Add in the fact that new-gen games are £10-£20 more expensive than they were on PS3/360 and it’s not surprising that many gamers opt to trade in their games as soon as they’re done.

With multiplayer orientated titles like Battlefield or Titanfall, they may keep hold of them a little while longer if they’re still fun or reliable online. The promise of extra maps to download further down the line make trading them in a risky proposition, after all nobody wants to miss out.

But what about games like Infamous: Second Son? With no multiplayer component and a Platinum Trophy available over two playthroughs through less than 20 hours of play, there isn’t much reason to keep the game. It makes much more sense to trade it in or make even more money back by listing it on eBay. Even if you really enjoyed a game, it’s worth noting that you could sell for a high price soon after launch and then buy again for a quarter of the price in a few years’ time when you fancy reliving the experience.

Standalone DLC Like Infamous: First Light Must Become The New Norm

But that’s not exactly music to the ears of game publishers who deem every second-hand copy of their game sold as missed monies. Thankfully, most of the big houses have ditched their online passes to put off preowned sales. For years we’ve seen expansion DLC for single player games to enhance the experience and ensure we keep the game but decent ones have been quite rare. Fallout 3 had some great (but horrendously buggy) expansions, Burnout Paradise had a great blend of free and paid packages that ensured no racing fan would ever be able to part with their game. The lack of a sequel has also helped there.
