BioShock 2 getting ‘extensive’ DLC soon

If you have already played through BioShock 2, you won’t have long to wait to have more content. 2K Games announced today an “aggressive post-launch downloadable content plan” for BioShock 2 to extend and enhance both single player and multiplayer experiences.

The first DLC is the Sinclair Solutions Test Pack, which will be available in March for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The pack contains a number of customization features to allow you to further develop your character in the multiplayer modes. The new features include a rank increase to level 50 with new rewards, new playable characters Louie McGraff and Oscar Calraca, 20 new trials, a third weapon upgrade for each weapon, and five additional masks. Some of the items will only be available after a player achieves a rank of41 or higher.

"The fans who waited in the snow, rain and cold for the midnight launch of BioShock 2 have spoken and their message is that Rapture still has many fascinating stories to tell," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "Downloadable content is a key part of our efforts to continue to entice the fans that have made 2K a household name – we intend to deliver single and multiplayer content that respects and expands upon one of the greatest fictional worlds ever created."

Future DLC includes extensions of the single player campaign that will provide new insights into Rapture. You can expect new narratives, new tools, and new challenges to further the lore and fiction of Rapture.

The first DLC will be out in March and will cost $4.99 USD. More DLC packs will be out in the months to follow.
