We’ve heard many adjectives used to describe DLC. This, however, we think is a first. “Aggressive” DLC doesn’t sound like something we’d purchase, so much as we’d restrain it by luring it onto our PCs using money as bait. Then, with its fury temporarily caged, we’d try with all our might to beat the content before it could burst free from our hard drives and swallow us whole.
We don’t think that’s quite what 2K has in mind, however.
“2K Games announced today an aggressive post-launch downloadable content plan for BioShock 2 that extends and enhances the single and multiplayer experiences by adding more glimpses into the award-winning world of Rapture,” said the publisher in a press release.
Coming down the Bathysphere first is the Sinclair Solutions Test Pack, which brings a number of improvements to the multiplayer side of BioShock 2. These include new weapon upgrades, a rank increase to 50, new playable characters, five additional masks, And More ™! It’ll run you 400 Microsoft Points, or $4.99, and is launching in March.
Honestly, though, we’re more interested in the forthcoming single-player DLC, which promises “more narrative, new tools and new challenges that extend the lore and fiction of the failed Utopia under the sea.”
Still, though, a little something for everyone is better than nothing for no one, right? Regardless, it looks like BioShock 2 is here to say, and that’s a-okay with us.
