Sony has snagged the domain name, Infamous2TheGame.com, which cements the fact that there will be a sequel to last years surprise hit. If you own a PS3 and haven’t played Infamous yet, I highly suggest checking it out. It’s a new take on a superhero game, and one of the only open-world genre games I’ve ever fully played through. Basically, some crazy stuff happens and your character, Cole, gets some sweet lightning powers similar to Emperor Palpatine.
The story is decent and you have karma implications, either becoming a savior or the scourge of the city. I’m actually considering throwing it in for old times sake, and to clean up on some trophies. I’m still looking for my first complete game for the PS3, and I’m quite close on Infamous.
There aren’t any details on Infamous 2 yet, just the domain name purchase. There’s nothing on the site, so don’t worry about checking it out. I’d imagine it’ll be dropping sometime in 2011, as most sequels take about two years to complete these days. Stay tuned for more information only on the E.B. You’ve been zapped…
