Collin Moore's Avatar + Posted by Collin Moore on Sep 01, 2011 // Communications Manager, Zombie Studios

Greetings from the deck here at Sucker Punch Productions! As many of you may have heard we had an excellent panel at PAX Prime last weekend about creating our 2D cutscenes. Those lucky enough to attend got a sneak preview of a cutscene from inFAMOUS 2: Festival of Blood, and a free inFAMOUS 2: Festival of Blood t-shirt to boot. We can’t wait to share more details about Festival of Blood, so here’s the sneak peek. Let us know what you think in the comments!

If you want to know how we created these sequences you can read our detailed summary of our PAX Prime panel, A Panel on Panels: Creating the Comic-Inspired Cutscenes of inFAMOUS 2, over on SuckerPunch.com. For more updates, be sure to follow us on Twitter, @SuckerPunchProd, and ‘Like’ us on Facebook.

Collin, the artwork is amazing. Is there anyway to purchase the t-shirt? Or are we the unlucky ones? Either way, most impressive!

Those cutscenes are awesome! There were not enough of them in infamous 2, story was not as good as infamous 1.

But this little “add-on” will be fantastic I think.

+ burningwind on September 1st, 2011 at 8:22 am said:

Still don’t like the idea of vampires mixed with Infamous or this being a stand alone game. Should really make some sort of expansion for Infamous 2. Even if it has to take place before the ending rather than after.

1) is festival of blood right after Infamous 2 and

2) will i be able to choose right off the bat whether we want to be good or evil cole, or will the dlc detect my latest I2 save file and load that data.

3) will all powers from I2 be carried over to this awesome dlc

This game looks sweet ..im so NOT GETTING IT! i cant wait for it to be released!! I dont care about this game at all..

+ Phillyblunz on September 1st, 2011 at 8:45 am said:

@4 thats what she said.

Infamous is sweet.

I have part two but feel I need to replay through Infamous 1 as evil first.

What do you guys think?

As of now I’ve beat the game as good, and dont know what to do now?
Do I have to delete the game to play as evil cole?
Or can I continue after the boss has been beaten?

As such I havent touched the game since I beat it, but I want to, just dont know exactly what the next step is???

@18

are u on drugs or something?

+ Phillyblunz on September 1st, 2011 at 8:59 am said:

This is funny, just the other day I was thinking, all these games are going Zombie, Zombies are slow and dumb and easy to kill, only really a threat in big numbers.

So I thought back to a game on the Ps2, its a FPS where you are a Vampire and have awesome jumping ability that added a lot to the game.

Then I thought why dont more games go the Vampire route? Now here we are.

Cole would demolish hordes of Zombies, but flyin, superfast, blood thirsty Vampires are appropriate nemesis’s for his verticallity, as well as his distance and area attacks.

Good show SP, now how about a discount for owners of Infamous 1 and 2???

And as said here previously using our Karma from part 1 or 2??

Or throw a spin on it, let us choose to either join the Vampires and become one with hybrid powers, or join the weak humans in a more survival horror type resistance force.

You know what happens when a Vampire gets hit by lightning? The same thing that happens to everything else.

+ ekjeffrey on September 1st, 2011 at 9:58 am said:

@Phillyblunz:

Option 1: Start a new game as Bad Cole (after you have played through Infamous 1 as Bad Cole) or
Option 2: Just a fresh start and be bad; be very bad…

Game should know that you have played though both good and bad sides at the end and you will be handsomely rewarded. The second playthough on both games, taking the bad(evil) side always went a lot faster, too.

Festival of Bood: Got to have it; day 1 for certain!!!

Collin & Scout: of course I’m getting this & anything else Infamous.

Did I hear a rumor that I2 would get Move support? If so, I’ll hold off on the evil kharma play through for Move.

When does this DLC take place in the infamous universe? or is it an alternate timeline sort of deal? Looks radical btw!

Can’t wait vampires plus conduits, it would be great fun. Question where does it place in the inFamous mythology? or is it like a “what if” thingy?

alright, i’ve been seeing sad questions here. infamous 2: festival of blood is a stand alone game, which means you dont need the other infamous series to have this game. it takes place in new marais. so at #17, this takes question 1 out of the picture. for your 2nd question, the game focuses on a more eviller cole and the other part of the question, my comment/answer on your first question. and for your 3rd, im not sure either. what im thinking is that there might be similar but different powers. i think i’ve seen a video somewhere(here on playstation blog) and it showed that cole drinking blood from some person(dont ask me how because its really hard to explain, and for the person, [i believe that the storyline goes that vampires flood the streets of new marais and has to kill the leader before the night ends to save the town and himself from destruction(i believe it said "to save the town and himself". i think i've seen this in another blog)] not sure if the person was a vampire or not), as for the power similarities, you can press R1 to lock on and press, lets just say triangle, to suck blood from a person(im not saying this will happen).


44

+ D-Squad3 on September 1st, 2011 at 12:57 pm said:

So is this stand alone or do we need to also have inFAMOUS 2? I don’t really mind cuz I already have inFAMOUS 2.
