May 27, 2011Written by Zak Islam

At the end of the original inFamous, protagonist Cole MacGrath had a vision that an enemy called ‘The Beast’ would be in his world; the only person able to stop the Beast is, unsurprisingly, Cole. Sony has released a new trailer for Sucker Punch’s forthcoming sequel, inFamous 2, detailing the mysterious creature.

The trailer can be viewed below.

Sucker Punch offered some insight into the Beast via the PlayStation Blog (minor spoilers):

What’s the Beast, you ask? Like a meteor from outer space it’s a force of destruction too powerful for humanity to contain. At the end of inFamous, Cole MacGrath was given a vision that the Beast would arrive into the world and that he alone could stop it. The safety of our species was put on his shoulders. No pressure right?

As you might imagine Cole would do anything in his power to get ready for the fight. He’s desperate to win, to save the lives of his friends and neighbors.

The developer finalized the Beasts’ details with:

But at the start of inFamous 2 he fails. The Beast arrives and Cole isn’t strong enough. He’s forced to run south to New Marais and prepare for a second, final encounter while his home, Empire City, is swallowed in flames.

inFamous 2 is currently scheduled for a release on June 7th in North America. The electrifying sequel will release in European territories a day later and will launch in the United Kingdom come June 10th.
