InFamous 2 officially announced

We've known it was coming for a while now, having heard endless rumors about it through unofficial (but reliable) channels. But just in case there was any doubt, InFamous 2 has been officially confirmed as real, thanks to the cover of the upcoming July issue of Game Informer.

The GI teaser story linked above also offers up a few details about the game ahead of its 10-page preview, revealing that - in addition to the less distinctive look sported above - hero Cole McGrath will head off to defend a new city, with new powers and a new enemy to fight. That also means there's a good chance the game will be at E3 in some form, and while we thought the first InFamous had problems, we can't wait to see how developer Sucker Punch is expanding on its enormous potential. We'll know more in just a couple of weeks.

    The only bad thing with inFamous was the generic lead Cole. Sad they haven't fixed the lead this time, but who cares I'm buying !

    The first game was so horrible. As much as I'd like to say that I wish this game well, I honestly hope this one is just as terrible. Not since God of War has any game bored me so much that I just turned it off mid-level without being stuck or having prior engagements at the same time.

    And what the hell is Sony saving for E3? That's another major exclusive out of the bag. I hope they know what they're doing.

    Oh boy, Cole looks even more generic than before. Is that even him? The first game was good, but not that great. I'm sure some of the problems I had with it will be fixed, but there's still a sinking feeling that it won't live up to the potential of the superhero sandbox concept.

    Squeeee! I wonder what flavours of lightning will be available now...

    I thought inFamous was a really good game and actually thought it was better written than most sandbox style games(and made Prototype look like a pretty sick joke, imho)and am pleased to see it confirmed. Thing is, doesn't anyone else wonder exactly what the eff MS,Sony and Co are going to try and shock us with come E3? Everything's announced already! Hoping for a Warjhawk2/Starhawk or SF5 showing, mind, from Sony. I know work has been done on a SF for PS3 but would really like to know if they were/are doing more than just investigating it over at bend.

    made me mad* stupid fingers. Nice article by the way.

    Like most of the commentators, I really enjoyed inFamous, and it made mad. I really should have hated it but it really drew me in. Sucker Punch really needs to fix the way Cole walks and the way that inFamous is spelled. God I hate the spelling.

    you may want to sit down for this phieagles20, but your crazy
  • Cyberninja - June 4, 2010 8:48 p.m.

    i wonder how they will start it because being to use a bolt of lightning from the sky to begin would be to easy
  • phieagles20 - June 4, 2010 8:13 p.m.

    I loved how in the first Infamous, Cole moved so similar to Sly Cooper. It wasn't exactly the same but i could see some similarities, or maybe I'm just crazy.
  • loonyman978 - June 4, 2010 8:10 p.m.

    I really liked the first, apart from the odd moments. It was one of those 'average' games that were good to play but not mind blowingly brilliant. I hope SP make getting platinum easier though, that last silver was stupdly difficult
  • RebornKusabi - June 4, 2010 7:40 p.m.

    I loved the first game, despite it's problems which didn't keep me from liking it more than I liked Prototype, which I absolutely hated for several reasons... though I have said before that maybe it just wasn't my type of game to begin with. I'll be keeping an eye on this one just to see where they take the story after the ending of the first inFamous.

    Yay, he has hair!

    Damn it! Sucker Punch needs to make Sly 4!
