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.
