'inFAMOUS 2' (PS3) Gets Prequel Comic Book Series

Cole MacGrath makes his electrifying return in inFAMOUS 2, taking the franchise to all-new heights in an immersive open world action adventure that offers a more visceral, emotional and powerful take on the true superhero experience.

Blamed for the destruction of Empire City and haunted by the ghosts of his past, reluctant hero Cole MacGrath makes a dramatic journey to the historic Southern city of New Marais in an effort to discover his full super-powered potential - and face a civilization-ending confrontation with a dark and terrifying enemy from his own future. Gifted with extraordinary god-like abilities, Cole alone has the power to save humanity, but the question is- will he choose to do so?

inFAMOUS 2 opens in Empire City as a massive explosion rips through the town signaling the birth of a new evil. Nearly escaping death by the dark entity known as “The Beast”, Cole flees the city. Upon leaving, Cole discovers that “The Beast” has destroyed Empire City and is heading down the coast annihilating everything in its path.

In an effort to stop “The Beast” from destroying mankind, Cole heads to New Marais in search of a scientist who is believed to hold the key to defeating this dark entity. As the mystery of “The Beast” unfolds, Cole must learn to harness his powers for the sake of mankind.

In celebration of the upcoming release of inFAMOUS 2, today Sucker Punch Productions and DC Comics announce brand new chapters in the inFAMOUS storyline.  Penned by William Harms and illustrated by artist Eric Nguyen, the series bridges the story between inFAMOUS and inFAMOUS 2 and chronicles Cole's struggle to save Empire City before fleeing to the Southern city of New Marais.  Spanning a heart stopping 6 volumes, the series will reveal sinister motives, dark secrets, and introduce a new threat to Cole and all of mankind.

The inFAMOUS comic series will be available at retailers everywhere for $2.99 per issue and playstationcomics.com beginning March 2011.

  • True Superhero Experience – Wielding god-like superpowers, discover what it means to be a true superhero with powerful cinematic sequences, stylized graphic cutscenes and epic boss battles which help bring Cole’s story to life.
