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

Chuck Lacson's Avatar Posted by 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).

20909Hotspot-SingStar-80:Layout 1

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?

If we don’t purchase the Hero’s edition, are we missing out on in-game content completely?

Mattsta001 said:

February 18th, 8:11 am

Who is that guy on the front cover? Doesn’t look anything like the Cole from Infamous.

KAPADO said:

February 18th, 8:11 am

Well there view my money to another good game , may the blu-ray glow upon you Sucker Punch developers

Lord Jack Tretton be praised

I love the Kessler skin, but does it actually help to charge you up or anything? Or is it just for looks?

    Chuck Lacson said:

    February 18th, 9:38 am

    It’s a skin, not aware of any extra power advantages, but just look at him…bad ass.

Haze_OMGWTF said:

buying this on first day
but that cover box art is really awful

eagandale4114 said:

February 18th, 8:11 am

@11 I second that…..
We need a demo

DonDrix said:

February 18th, 8:11 am

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.

    If you get the HERO edition, you get all the pre-order exclusives so you are taken care of!

Feonando said:

February 18th, 8:11 am

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). :)

Viggorrah said:

February 18th, 8:11 am

Hell yeah finally a solid release date! THANK YOU for not making us suffer and wait that much longer!

    Sorry for the wait. Only 4 months away!

Stingger said:

February 18th, 8:11 am

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…

I won the Hero edition through the Subway Footlong contest. I am so excited.

TomHoang said:

February 18th, 8:13 am

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!

Veridis_Quo said:

February 18th, 8:13 am

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!

    I have to say the statue is pretty sweet. We’ll post more pics soon so you can enjoy the detail.

joseph2411 said:

Awesome! Just marked my calendar, getting it day one for sure! :)

Virgo21Child said:

February 18th, 8:14 am

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

Nader-Abudiix said:

February 18th, 8:15 am

WOW the EU cover is way better then US and they get original cole skin. this is so sad really

chaoszero14 said:

February 18th, 8:15 am

First day buy for me! Also does the sling pack have a pocket in the front to put your cell phone?

Kamino_3 said:

February 18th, 8:16 am

I see more soundtracks of the games nowadays…nice. Always a great touch.

Whoaness said:

February 18th, 8:16 am

Yeah, I want to know more about the Sling Pack. How big is it in litres?

    Chuck Lacson said:

    February 18th, 9:44 am

    litres? It’s a good size, you can fit a laptop in it.

David2Crazy said:

February 18th, 8:17 am

I hate separate pre-order items for different places. By the time they are available on PSN I will be finished the game and have never checked them out.

DaWolf619 said:

February 18th, 8:17 am

@22, check the pic of the Hero Edition, you will get all of the in-game content.

esko said:

February 18th, 8:18 am

    Take her out to a nice dinner before you break the news to her.

DonDrix said:

February 18th, 8:20 am

@38, it’s not really made clear that ‘a collection of in-game content’ is the same content that’s supposedly retailer-exclusive.

Ecko_25 said:

February 18th, 8:21 am

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

i.e.
Kessler skin= Infamous 2 Character Skin
New Powers= Infamous 2 Power Enhancement?

    Chuck Lacson's Avatar

    Chuck Lacson said:

    February 18th, 9:48 am

    Nope. It’s different. :)

Spidey817 said:
