inFAMOUS 2 Hitting Shelves June 7

The super-charged sequel to Sucker Punch’s 2009 open-world superhero blockbuster, inFAMOUS, is now officially scheduled to launch on June 7, 2011, exclusively for PlayStation 3.  

InFAMOUS 2 takes lead protagonist Cole MacGrath to a brand new location, the Southern city of New Marais, where he’ll face off against “The Beast.” This latest adversary will test Cole super-powered potential, so says Sony.

"Combining all-new dynamic open world gameplay and an evolved karma system, the second chapter in the best-selling franchise promises to bring back everything fans loved about inFAMOUS and more," said Scott A. Steinberg, vice president, product marketing, SCEA. "inFAMOUS 2 is Sucker Punch’s most ambitious game yet and is poised to once again be PS3’s summer blockbuster with a more visceral, emotional and powerful take on the true superhero experience."

On top of the release date announcement, Sony has also revealed inFAMOUS 2’s special edition plans and the content found within. The special edition, also known as the “Hero Edtion,” will launch alongside the standard retail release and will cost $99.99.
