inFAMOUS 2 Countdown Begins: Release Date, Pre-Orders & HERO Edition Announced!

Chuck Lacson's Avatar + Posted by Chuck Lacson on Feb 18, 2011 // Product Marketing Manager, SCEA

Last Friday, an inFAMOUS 2 post broke down the power of choice in inFAMOUS 2 and spawned some very energetic comments on not just the Karma system, but another topic as well -

“Release date please!”- TomHoang

“Please give us a release date already! Geez!”- DeviantBoi

“PLEASE TELLS US THE RELEASE DATE SO I COULD MARK IT ON MY CALENDER AND SAVE MONEY FROM NOW !!”- MilaNumber14

Well to Tom, Deviant, Mila, and the rest of you amazing fans, we are happy to announce that inFAMOUS 2 will be launching in North America exclusively on the PlayStation 3 on June 7th, 2011!

In about 4 months, players will finally begin the next chapter in Cole’s adventures. (Packfront Alert!)

On top of this, we’d love to confirm that on that same day we are also launching the inFAMOUS 2 HERO Edition (aka the Best Kept Secret EVER) for $99.99 (msrp).

Short of actual electrical super powers, the HERO Edition delivers everything an inFamous fan could want including a highly detailed 8.5” Cole MacGrath statue, a sportable sling pack modeled after Cole’s own in-game gear, the inFAMOUS #1 mini comic from DC Comics, the official inFAMOUS 2 HERO Edition Soundtrack and a super voucher code for a collection of in-game content.

Starting today participating retailers kick off official pre-order programs letting you score one of the following bonus items listed below.

24K GOLD AMP

Gold_Amp

Cole’s nasty new weapon definitely delivers the pain, but when you pre-order at Amazon.com you can get a gold (in-game) version to dish it out in style.

KESSLER SKIN

KESSLER_Concept art

Experience inFAMOUS 2 as Cole’s super-powered nemesis from the first inFAMOUS story if you pre-order from Best Buy.

LIGHTNING HOOK

Lightning Hook

GameStop fans can unlock this special power with their pre-order, an electro-kinetic tether that lets you snare and pull enemies and objects towards Cole.

ELECTROCUTION GRENADE

Electrocution Grenade

Visit Walmart and pre-order to get powerful grenade that ties enemies down with arcing electricity before going BOOM.

DIGITAL SOUNDTRACK

Blending the funk and jazz of New Orleans’ own Galactic, with the rock sounds of Bryan “Brain” Mantia (Primus & Guns and Roses), we’ve created a soundtrack that is pure inFAMOUS 2. Music lovers can download this special soundtrack if they pre-order from participating retailers.

Hope this is exciting news for everyone. Look out for more great updates to come, both on INFAMOUSTHEGAME.com or right here on the PS blogosphere!

Not a big fan of the boxart. Anyway, to clarify, if you get the Hero edition, it comes with all of the pre-order bonuses from all the different retailers?

I’m so excited for this game. The only thing is, are these retailer-specific content only going to be timed exclusives?

Because I would really want to eventually have all of that content without having to buy the game 4 times, you know?

Especially if I’m going to get the HERO Edition, I feel like I’m kind of entitled to get the fullest experience, maybe not day one, but eventually.

US cover is really bad. Use the PAL cover, there’s still time and is not like you guys need to do much (copy, paste, paste ESRB rating on top of PEGI rating, print). :)

Ok, this gives me 3 months to beat the first Infamous lol… Just been busy with Dead Space 1 & 2… That collector’s set looks awesome & I don’t usually say that too often of those things…

I didn’t know these are the same guys that made the Sly Cooper games; which gave me my first platinum trophies lol…

This is awesome! Day 1 buy for me, possibly even the Hero edition since I don’t have a housing bill to pay this year :)

Note to Sony and other publishers, please release more games during the summer! I am sick of buying multiple games during the spring and holiday seasons and not having time to play them all!

I’m loving the Cole statue, it looks like it’s high quality. I was just hoping that the actual game would be housed in a steel book casing instead of your usual standard edition plastic case. I don’t know how I feel about the rest of the contents. Nonetheless I can’t wait for the game to finally release. 4 months is feels sooooo far away!

Is it true that the game continues on the previous game, for example i choose to be evil does that mean my path will stay like that when i play infamous 2?

Playstation is looking on track with exclusives and the use of move is amazing bring on KILLZONE 3

Are some of those preorder bonuses the same ones in the Subway Footlong sweepstakes or are they different?

i.e.

New Powers= Infamous 2 Power Enhancement?
