Sony Computer Entertainment and Sucker Punch have just announced an official North American release date for the pair’s electrically charged action game, inFamous 2, while revealing special editions and pre-order bonuses for both North America and Europe.
inFamous 2 is ready to release on June 7th in North America, but no official date has been announced for Europe and the UK. Judging by normal tradition, we could expect the game to become available in these regions on June 10th, but crazier things have happened.
Also revealed was a ‘Hero Edition’ of inFamous 2 (going for an MSRP of $99.99 in the US), which includes the following items:
- a highly detailed 8.5” Cole MacGrath statue
- a sportable sling pack modeled after Cole’s own in-game gear
- the inFAMOUS #1 mini comic from DC Comics
- the official inFAMOUS 2 HERO Edition Soundtrack
- a super voucher code for a collection of in-game content
In Europe and PAL regions, a Special Edition inFamous 2 package is also planned which features a “stunning HD 3D lenticular cover,” with both ‘Good’ and ‘Bad’ variants, both of which contain download codes for these exclusive in-game items:
- Electrocution Grenade’ limited edition power
- ‘Original Cole’ skin
- ‘Golden Amp’
You’re also able to pre-order the regular edition of inFamous 2, and at certain retailers around the world, you’ll be eligible for the following in-game items and accessories:
24K GOLD AMP
“Cole’s nasty new weapon definitely delivers the pain, but when you pre-order at Amazon.com you can get a gold (in-game) version to dish it out in style.”
“Experience inFAMOUS 2 as Cole’s super-powered nemesis from the first inFAMOUS story if you pre-order from Best Buy.”
“GameStop fans can unlock this special power with their pre-order, an electro-kinetic tether that lets you snare and pull enemies and objects towards Cole.”
“Visit Walmart and pre-order to get powerful grenade that ties enemies down with arcing electricity before going BOOM.”
“Music lovers can download the official musical soundtrack to Cole’s latest adventure if they pre-order from participating retailers.”
You should of course look over El33tonline’s previous coverage of inFamous 2 for batches of incredible screenshots, a couple in-game videos, and more information on the newly unveiled morality system in the game.
