That’s right, you read that correctly. You thought zombies were the in thing? Well apparently vampires are still cool too. Sony and Sucker Punch announced the first official piece of DLC (non-user generated) for InFAMOUS 2.

The DLC called Festival of Blood features the terrifying creatures of the night. In it we will get to see our hero Cole McGrath bitten by one. In order to save the city of New Marais as well as his own soul, Cole will have one night to hunt down and destroy the leader of the vampire clan that’s infesting the city. At this point it is unknown if the game is direct DLC onto the main game of Infamous 2, or if it is a standalone downloadable adventure. It hasn’t been detailed yet if Cole’s transformation will grant him any new powers, but one can expect that it will. Festival of Blood may seem like a wacky idea, but it is certainly a good thing to see a great game like InFAMOUS 2 get some post launch support.

Festival of Blood is supposed to release this October (just in time for Halloween), exclusively on the Playstation 3. Check out the trailer from Gamescom:
