2K Games announced today that Dark Sector developer Digital Extremes will be crafting the multiplayer experience for its engrossing underwater FPS, BioShock 2.
“The fans asked for a multiplayer experience and we answered,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “With Digital Extremes delivering a multiplayer experience for BioShock 2 that features all of the things that make BioShock unique, we’re holding ourselves to a high standard so that we can deliver the depth and variety that fans of the BioShock universe demand.”
Multiplayer is disparate from BioShock 2's campaign. As with all things in the franchise, the mode has story and context. Set during the downfall of Rapture, gamers assume the role of a plasmid test subject. As players progress, they'll acquire experience points which can be used to purchase new weapons, plasmids and tonics. Veterans will recognize locations like Kashmir Restaurant and Mercury Suites, though they'll be adapted to work in the multiplayer arena.
Look for more on BioShock 2 soon.

When MAG comes out and if it's successful most online player will be in it, decreasing the online players for other games massively

@6 I've thought about that alot, like when I'm playing waw and I think about playing Killzone2 or COD4 then I think about games like bad company and that bond game or the orange box or lbp or RE:5 or MGS4 or fallout3 or GTA.. there are alot of games that people are playing online..... dont worry theres no shortage of online players.
