Take Two's nailed down a date of August 31st for Bioshock 2's final slice of DLC, "Minerva's Den"
The $9.99 extension builds on the single-player narrative of Bioshock 2, and plunges players deep into Rapture once again. The additional campaign adds three new areas to explore, aswell as six new Little Sisters. The DLC's narrative runs alongside...
With the announcement of Bioshock: Infinite, many people are asking the question as to why the series' creator, Ken Levine, skipped on Bioshock 2
The answer's simple, he told Joystiq that he "felt like we said what we wanted to say about Rapture". He continued: "That's one of the reasons Bioshock 2 wasn't the right project for us and, as we agreed with the company, we didn't have..
2K Games has confirmed that Bioshock 2 will be getting new single-player focused story content
The add-on, titled Minerva's Den, will see players taking on the role of a brand new character and teaming up with Brigid Tenebaum to fight a dictator's district in Rapture. "Minerva's Den is a substantial addition that will give players more of what they're looking for: more story, more narrative,..
2K's lifted the lid on the first set of single-player DLC that is headed to Bioshock 2 this August
The pack riffs on some of the best moments from the game's campaign, where you're tasked with protecting a little Sister from a host of Rapture's nasties. The new "Protector Trials" DLC will include six maps "based on favorite...
It seems to me that every video game has multiplayer these days
More or less. And even when it's debateable whether a game should have multiplayer (Bioshock 2 springs to mind), the resulting component tends to be rather impressive. But that causes its own sub-set of problems, particularly for someone like myself who has to play through multiple...
There's new DLC incoming for Bioshock 2
And while the first batch is totally all about the multiplayer, 2K's promised there is single-player DLC incoming too. 2K described the "on-the-horizon" single-player pack as a means to provide more narrative, new tools and new challenges that extend the lore and fiction of the failed Utopia under...
Another week and another shooter has taken the crown from Ubisoft's current Wii phenomenom, Just Dance
Amazingly for Rebellion, Aliens vs Predator has become the fastest-selling game in 2010, topping last week's record holder, Bioshock 2 (now in third). Of course, they're both gonna get crushed by Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Either way, big congrats to SEGA and Rebellion, though we do have an issue..
Apparently Bioshock is still a big deal, as Bioshock 2 has shot straight to the top of the UK charts, removing previous leader Mass Effect 2
Interestingly, after a slew of price-cuts (and perhaps that Playstation 3 patch), Bayonetta has re-entered the charts in number 10 (up from 36). Elsewhere, Fifa 10 and Modern Warfare 2 are still strong propositions. Check out the full list after the jump..
Bioshock 2's Michael Kamper has told CVG that there are many stories to be told in the franchise's universe, mainly thanks to the uniqueness of Raptures setting
Rapture is probably one of the most unique places ever invented. I have to imagine that there are many stories that could be told within its walls. But right now were just focused on making a successful launch for BioShock..
It's a pretty big week for video games this one, as it officially starts the Q1, 2010 phenomenon commonly referred to as Game-ageddon; where one big title drops practically every week until way into April
PushSquare's Playstation Pick Of The Week: Bioshock 2 Perhaps the most unnecessary sequel of all time, Bioshock 2 may seem surplus to...
This epic 3-minute Bioshock 2 launch trailer is properly the best trailer we've seen thus far this year
It's totally all CGI but it captures the game perfectly. We'd forgotten how subtley creepy the universe of Bioshock is too. If you weren't hyped for the game, you probably will be now.
If you fancy rolling up to the Playstation Home bowling alley dressed as a Big Daddy then, erm, you can
All you need to do is preorder the Bioshock 2 Special Edition (on Playstation 3 obviously) from Amazon. The outfit is exceptionally detailed, and comes from Heavy Water (the folks who also make really good Home personal spaces and the like).
Bioshock 2's probably going to be awesome
But even with a trailer this explosive, we can't help but feel underwhelmed. Don't get us wrong, it's a good trailer, and the game looks good. But still, we don't feel anything for it.
Geoff Keighley's back folks
And he's brought tons of new stuff from Bioshock 2 with him. There are some mild spoilers in the embedded video, so watch at your own peril. Still, news on Bioshock 2 has been so thin, we doubt anyone will be passing up on this content. Plus Geoff Keighley's in it. Did we mention that?
GameTrailers TV haven't had a big ass exclusive for us to post about for a while
That changes this week though, when host Geoff Keighley tackles the secrets of Bioshock 2, and finally reveals exactly who is running Rapture these days. According to Keighley there'll be plenty of new "single player footage and info" — something that's been missing for a while. You can catch the episode..
Bioshock 2 may be being developed by about 20,000 different developers, but those guys are finally gearing up to release the product
In fact, the game will hit retail fairly early into 2010, on February 9th. To be honest, scepticism is pretty high across the gaming sphere for a game that many argue shouldn't exist in the first place. We'll happy to see more of it though.
When this trailer for Bioshock 2 kicked in, we remembered why we fell in love with the first game
That pseudo-retro feel packs the game with charm, and while it's not as fresh now as it was when the first game launched, it still had us smiling during the first few moments of the trailer. Then the gameplay kicked in and our smile drooped. We haven't played Bioshock 2 yet, so feel free to..
Take-Two have announced that Bioshock 2 will be pushed back until the "first half of 2010"
Concerns have been raised over the game's direction and "too many cooks" development approach over the past few months - surely some reasoning behind the delay. Take-Two's Chairman Strauss Zelnick publicly apologized about the setback in a press release:"We recognize that our revised outlook..
Bioshock 2 is a bit like video game pass-the-parcel
A fourth development house has joined the Bioshock circus today. Lyon-based Arkane Studios joins lead developer 2K Marin (in California), its collaborator 2K Australia, and multiplayer specialist Digital Extremes (headquartered in Ontario). It's like Around The World In Four Development Houses. Goodness knows how Bioshock 2 as a product will..
Thank goodness for no "timed exclusive" garbage - Bioshock 2 will be heading to 360, PC and most importantly Playstation 3 on October 30th (EU) and November 3rd (US)
So there you have it, now you know.
Take Two have confirmed that one of the most anticipated sequels this year, Bioshock 2, will release in Europe on Friday, October 30th; with the US version landing a few days later on November 3rd
The platforms are still listed as TBA so it's possible there may be some "timed exclusivity" deal for Microsoft someone to buy secure, but we guess anything like that will be announced at E3.
Did you know Bioshock 2 had multiplayer? Well it does
We're not quite sure how it will work in the context of a franchise that is entirely story-driven and has some, well, admittedly lame gun combat. Regardless, it's there and is being developed by Digital Extremes, the team that worked on Dark Sector. In the multiplayer you'll play as a Plasmid test subject working for Sinclair Solutions during..
Kotaku just posted a set of new screenshots for Bioshock 2 which remind us that the game is pretty much looking exactly the same as its little sister
.. do y'see what we did tharr? Would you kindly check them out.
Another exclusive from last night's GameTrailers TV with Geoff Keighley
This time Bioshock 2, which interestingly didn't have the "Sea Of Dreams" subtitle of the original trailer. The game looks extremely similar to the original Bioshock, right down to the HUD and narrative. However, the footage that is teased is a good reminder of why the original game was so good. There's a lot of..
