inFAMOUS 2, To Be Released June 7th, 2011

without comments

I only just recently completed my first playthrough of the first inFAMOUS, but I’ve been waiting to hear the release date for the second. After seeing some of the videos, the graphics look vastly improved, as does the gameplay… which is tight. And also sweet. So swight (see what I did?), in fact, that I actually marked this date on my calendar.

On top of the June 7th release date, Sucker Punch! has also revealed the special edition, “Hero Bundle,” and it’s contents. Aside from the game itself, the bundle will include:

  • Cole’s sling pack
  • An 8.5 inch Cole statue
  • a DC mini comic

On top of those three physical items, it will also come with a download voucher that includes the following:

  • In-game Kessler skin
  • 24K gold amp weapon
  • Electrocution Grenade power
  • The game’s soundtrack
  • Lightning Hook power

Specific retailers will offer preorders of the standard edition that will include one of those items. Amazon gets you the gold amp weapon, Best Buy is the Kessler skin, GameStop will allow you to use the Lightning Hook power, and Wal-Mart will carry the voucher for the Electrocution Grenade. All of the mentioned outlets will offer the soundtrack as a bonus as well.

The Hero Bundle will set you back a cool $100. Is it worth it? It depends on how much you like the game. Myself, as well as others, have been somewhat interested in Cole’s sling pack since the release of the first game. As I discussed with Aaron, about the durability and overall quality of the sling pack, however, you must realize that the game itself is $60. Then you have to add on the statue and comic. How much does that leave for the sling pack? We’ll have to wait and see.

Again, inFAMOUS 2 will be released on June 7th, 2011, exclusively to the PlayStation 3 console.
