inFamous 2: Festival of Blood Announced for PSN

Leeching electric blood.

inFamous 2 is getting a kind of spin off vampire tale. Festival of Blood is set over the course of one night in New Marais in which Cole must find and defeat the head vampire in order to halt the threat to the city.

It’s not DLC for inFamous 2,as far as we can ascertain, but a standalone title. It seems to be attempting a similar model to the Dead Rising episodic downloads Capcom put out on XBLA. A separate game with several hours of gameplay using assets from the full disc release and put out at an affordable price.

It’s a bold move but they seem to have nailed the look and feel of a vampiric New Marais and we’re always ready for a bit more inFamous, right?

    Can’t anything not be tainted by vampires these days? They’re everywhere.

    As a game though it should be good fun I have faith in Sucker Punch to deliver.

        True that, i haven’t heard of vampires in a while, and even in F3 they weren’t as pronounced.

    bloody hell, that was quick.

    anyway, interesting concept, i hope it’s not as big as uncharted 2 though, that was like 16 gigabytes.
    and just one night?
    well, we’ll find out more in time i suppose.

    I’d pick it up but rather it was an expansion.

      it would be nice if that was an option, especially if it could save a bit of hard drive space.

        i think it would be better if both dlc and stand alone versions were available.

    More InFamous is all good in my books, plus vamps make a nice little twist in the formula.
