Press release:
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe is putting the fate of humanity in your hands as inFamous 2 lands on PlayStation 3 today.  One of the most eagerly anticipated titles to hit stores this year, inFamous 2 is the follow-up to 2009’s hit inFamous, which proved itself as one of PlayStation’s most exciting new franchises.  Developed by Sucker Punch Productions, inFamous 2 takes the original adventure to dizzying new heights in an immersive, open world action adventure that offers a more visceral, emotional and powerful take on the true superhero experience.

Take on the role of Cole MacGrath, who has fled Empire City only to find himself in New Marais, a lawless and violent city.  His mission is to defeat The Beast, a dark force hell-bent on destroying humanity.  Like every hero armed with a serious arsenal of superpowers, he faces a myriad of challenges along the way – but it’s up to you to decide whether to take the moral high ground, whatever the personal cost, or blur the lines as the end justifies any means.  Wrestle with your conscience time and time again as each mission pushes your moral framework to its limits.  The upgraded karma system means every choice you make along the way will send your story spinning in its own direction.

Whatever moral path you choose, the journey is guaranteed to be a dark one as you cross New Marais, a city riddled with underworld criminals and infested with militant mutants.  Take to the mean streets and battle through the carnage – all delivered in intricate detail and texture in a feast of stunning cinematic visuals.  Or take advantage of Cole’s parkour skills to escape the mayhem below and scale buildings and cross the city in true superhero style.

You’ll have a completely overhauled power system – literally at your fingertips – ready to unleash on anyone who crosses your path.  Call down electric tornadoes or pick up and hurl cars at your enemies with the Kinetic Pulse power.  Then harness the forces of ice and fire from allies you meet along your journey.  And with an all-new close quarters melee system giving combat an unprecedented intensity, you’ll be right at the heart of the action as you wield your devastating new weapon: The Amp.

But your story doesn’t end with the script.  There are infinite opportunities for you to exercise your moral judgement with the inFamous 2 Mission Creator mode.  A plethora of in-game characters, creatures and props will be at your disposal for you to build everything and anything – from stealth missions to mini games – editing dialogue, objectives and rewards.  Fully customise your missions and then put others to the test via the PlayStation Network.

inFamous 2 comes with some great offers.  From the [8th/10th] of June, inFamous 2 fans everywhere will also be able to get hold of two special edition DUALSHOCK 3 Wireless Controller bundles containing, alongside a copy of inFamous 2, a choice of a limited edition red or blue DUALSHOCK 3 Wireless Controller: red for evil; blue for good.   Dedicated superheroes can get their hands on the “Special” and “Hero” editions of the game and enjoy a whole host of electrifying content and accessories.  And finally, for those of you that are new to the concept of shaping your own destiny, you can now pick-up a special 320GB PS3 bundle and prepare to hone your superhero skills.
