Infamous 2 vampire DLC dropping this October

Sucker Punch to release stand-alone single-player add-on for its sci-fi action title; will feature new missions, themed environments, and new characters.

In June this year, Sucker Punch released the sequel to its 2009 open-world action adventure game Infamous, giving protagonist Cole a new spate of electrical superpowers.

Cole is about to be bitten by something nasty.

He's set to receive still more powers, as a post on the official PlayStation Blog details the upcoming vampire-themed DLC release for Infamous 2, titled Festival of Blood.

The stand-alone single-player DLC will be available for download via PSN in October and will center on an invading swarm of vampires in New Marais. After being bitten himself, Cole has one night to track down and kill the head vampire in order to save both his soul and the city.

The pack will feature new missions and themed environment settings, as well as new characters and enemies. Sucker Punch has also revealed that because this is a stand-alone DLC pack, previous Infamous games will not be needed to play Festival of Blood.

According to Sucker Punch, players have spent a total of 451,251 hours--or 51 years--playing Infamous 2's user-generated content missions.

Earlier this month Sony revealed it had acquired Sucker Punch, making the Bellevue, Washington-based studio the publisher's 16th wholly owned studio.

@MamaLuigiBarrel Um, that's why I mention Let Me In and Let The Right One In and also the new Fright Night movie. Because some people don't like young adult fiction.

I didn't get inFamous 2 (too poor) but I might get the DLC because it looks awesome. :D

You are all quite epic in your responses. I'm going to see if Synthia can feature your epic responses in the next You've Been Spotted video. In the meantime, I'll see if I can get some of your comments featured on GameSpot Sync today. :)

@syafiqjabar I really don't care. I don't enjoy Twilight or anything similar to it, even the parody movie.

@MamaLuigiBarrel Other than True Blood, try watching Vampire Diaries for what happens when Twilight is made by people who are actually good and sane. And watch Let The Right One In and Let Me In (both based on the same book). And the new Fright Night is coming up, if you want to see Collin Farrel fighting Doctor Who #10.

No thanks. Sucker Punch seems to have painted itself into a corner plot-wise for the endings (no spoilers here), and so they release an add-on with a theme that's culturally relevant rather than plot-related. Surprised? Nope. Disappointed? Yes. I expected better of them. I won't be buying it. Good luck trying to explain the continuity between InFamous 2 and InFamous 3, by the way.

Ugh, a vampire story? Vampires stopped being entertaining when the Twilight movie came out.

This is actually kind of cool. Its a neat idea to take the license and put creative spin on it while having a bit of fun. It worked for Undead Nightmare. Even better that it's standalone, which is just awesome.

Cool, anything Infamous 2 is a must have in my books :P I wonder when they're going to release some more content packs for the mission editor though, I'm dying to pit some monsters against a few choppers.

I don't think it can be considered DLC if it's standalone.

@ RedHawk4 The fact that it isn't just an expansion pack shows that they want more people to try it, then go and buy the other full games. It's like paying for a super-sized demo. It may not be a FULL game, but it will give some sort of accomplishment when you finish. I only rented Dead Rising 2, but I bought the prologue and the epilogue for it. Capcom got to make a little extra money from someone who didn't want to buy the whole game, AND from people that bought the original DR2. If both of those had just been expansions, they never would have seen a dime from people like me.

As long as the vampires are more like Bram Stoker's vampires and nothing like Twilight's vampires, this will be good.

The fact that this is a stand-alone DLC might atract a few new players to the series, but I doubt it will be many at all. It might have been a better move to simply make it an expansion pack.
