InFamous 2 Festival Of Blood Revealed At Gamescom

Hello there PlayStation Blog readers! Sucker Punch has some exciting news for you all. Hopefully, all of you inFAMOUS fans have had a chance to play plenty of the UGC missions since our June launch. Players have spent a total of 451,251 hours or 51 years playing those UGC missions. While those missions have kept you entertained, its now time for a major DLC announcement.

inFAMOUS 2 Festival of Blood will be a brand new standalone single player DLC for download via PSN. Vampires swarm New Marais, and revered superhero Cole MacGrath has been bitten. To save his soul and city, he has just one night to find and kill the head vampire. Featuring new missions, themed environment settings and new characters/enemies, Festival of Blood explores the darker side of the inFAMOUS universe. Previous inFAMOUS games are not needed to play this DLC.

The DLC will swarm PSN in October, in time for Halloween. In the meantime, here is a new piece of key art for your desktop background, and a new video teaser trailer during Pyre Night in New Marais.

This better comes to Germany … and I hope he doesn’t sparkle!

I’m a huge infamous fan but… let’s just say I’m extremely apprehensive…

So many games have gone with zombies that the idea of vampires instead is brilliant. Keep up the good work Sucker Punch and I hope there’s plenty more great ideas to follow after too! :-D

I really hope we can neck-bite random people, like the Bio-Leech move. That’s gonna be quite addictive ;-)

awesome!

I kind of want this and don’t, I love the inFamous series and I really hate evil Cole (which I think we’re meant to (so even more of a great job)). I will be picking this up even though I’ll have to play evil but I bet it’s going to be awesome! I take it this is a complete spin-off and is no way part of the story/inFamous 3 prequel? Since inFamous 2 ended nicely in a way for the series. Trying not to leave any spoilers :/

It is confirmed by Sucker Punch that NO DISC for inFamous 2 is needed, yeah!

As long as he doesn’t sparkle, I’m all over this :D

looks like a undead nightmare-ish spin off. i like it. and i love the idea of singleplayer dlc that dont need the original disc. will buy this for sure!

@Everyone; Cole sure doesn’t fit the “Sparkling” Persona.

—– Previous inFAMOUS games are not needed to play this DLC. —–

^ Thanks for this. LOVED inFAMOUS 2 but after the Platinum Trophy I’ve prefered to sell the game and buy it again later.

not like

infamous 1- 2 was great .

inFAMOUS 2 Festival of Blood will be a brand new standalone single player DLC for download via PSN.

i

Uhm, I don’t get it. How do “Standalone” and “DLC” fit together?

Either it is a seperate game on its own, or it is content for the main game. Both together seems rather impossible.

will we be able to use the ugc feature in this?

@ Golwar

Because DLC stands for “Downloadable content”, which covers everything ever.

Problem is that in recent trends plebs decided that “DLC” actually stands for “Add-on” or “Expansion”, which it doesn’t.

Seperate content on it’s own can also be downloadable content.

Will there be a day 1 discount for ps+ users????

This looks brill, can’t wait to play it

GO BUCKS!

Looking good…

If it’s not zombies, it’s vampires at the moment. Hasn’t anyone got any other ideas? I got Infamous in the “Welcome Back” deal and have really enjoyed playing it (Twice! once as good Cole, once as bad), I’m looking forward to getting Infamous 2 but I probably won’t be picking up this version.

sorry but scee you seriously suck balls vita uncharted 3 and a infamous 2 dlc? what the hell you should all get fired scea had vita,bioshock infinite,uncharted 3,dust and many more you make me ashamed to be british

26

Hi Ken. Festival of Blood looks like it be perfect for Halloween.

How many hours playtime can we expect from the game?
Will we get to play on both islands from inFamous 2?

I love inFamous so definitely will be getting this.

INFAMOUS 2: RIOTS OF LONDON!

That’s what it looks like to me!

SDounds like a way to get some money cause its Halloween to me -.-

Mind you. I do want it. XD

This looks like it’ll be incredibly dumb. I love it.

@24 yea i agree, there is nothing exiting about this! what about some scary clowns or friendly looking teddy bears that hack you to bits if you get to close! its time to think outside the box and stop playing it safe all the time.

hw abt also adding another update fr infamous2 abt multiplayer!!!

Thats Sweet but really funny cuz I sometimes think cole as a vampire

35

I hope we can get other DLC to come with this one. Maybe new skins, amps and powers for inFAMOUS 2 ? Vampire Cole with that weird looking sword-stake ?

…E32010 Cole ?

WAREWOLFS! NO WAIT…DRAGONS!!!!! NO WAIT….GODS!!!!!!!NO WAIT….KRATOS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Umm! Vampires??? Q: Who thought of this, I mean, how do you think of vampires from an electric superhero!!!
A: I don’t care I WANT THIS! How much will it cost? lol

This is a good idea i’ve got the platinum on both 1&2 and can’t wait for some new content,i use the ugc but it’s not the same as all new missions and powers maybe? i brought the dlc yesterday and the skins and weapons are descent but i’ve completed the game twice i need fresh content and this halloween themed dlc looks like a step in the right direction i’ll be buying this defo.
