2K Aggressively Pursuing DLC For Bioshock 2
It's definitely near the top of our most anticipated list for the first quarter of 2010 and it's now only a few short weeks away.
Bioshock 2 is set to release in the US on February 9 (alongside EA's promising Dante's Inferno) and most of you realize that 2K Marin won't skimp on the storyline, even though the game appears to be a straight-up FPS on the surface. This really is part RPG, part shooter and it will boast both a robust plot to keep single-player lovers happy and a great online multiplayer option to satisfy those fans. But what about extra DLC? Well, a 2K Marin rep confirmed to Australian Gamer that it's most definitely in the works. Said Senior Systems Designer Ken Hudson:
"Absolutely! We are working on pretty aggressive plans for DLC and that's actually something that is already under-way. That is something that is mostly being run out of the Marin studio because like I said the Australian studio is already ramping up on the next big thing."
Wherever it's coming from, we're happy with that. Remember, the PS3 version of the original Bioshock, which came out a while after the game launched for the Xbox 360 and PC, only got a few extra Plasmids and a new challenge or two. In other words, we really didn't get much in the way of DLC. But this time, with the sequel developed as a multiplatform title with the PS3 in mind, owners of the latter machine should be able to appreciate this "aggressive" approach to DLC.
