First Look At BioShock 2 DLC

BioShock won't be out until this February, but that doesn't mean it's too early to talk about the game's downloadable content. Far from it.

The game's developers already announced that it had "pretty aggressive plans for DLC". The fist BioShock game only had DLC for the PS3 version, and it consisted of a few extra plasmids and challenge rooms.

The first DLC will be two downloadable characters for the game's multiplayer mode: actress Mademoiselle Blanche de Grace and sea dog Da Costa. The actress came to Rapture seeking new audiences, while the fisherman, born on a whaling ship, wanted to see the ocean from a different point-of-view. While BioShock 2 is set 10 years after BioShock 1, BS2's multiplayer is set one year before the first game. Players fight their way for survival as they test new Plasmids in Rapture's Civil War.

So far, these characters have only been announced for Japan as part of an initial, special offer to players to introduce them to the game's multiplayer mode. The offer from D3 Publisher, the game's Japanese distributor, and no word whether BioShock 2's Western publisher will offer something similar.

BioShock 2 will be released in Japan on March 4 on the PS3 and the Xbox 360. It will be released on February 9 in North America and PAL territories.

    is the dlc free?

    If you head to ebgames.com.au website and have a look at thier bioshock 2 preorder bonus, its actually these two characters.

    Horse armor anyone?

    Or is it just me?

    Um, no, the first Bioshock game had DLC for the 360 as well. It was free and came with the plasmids and stuff, but not the challenge rooms, that the 360 version did not contain.

    If it was, it'd be in the game already. They're milking for money. This is stupid.

    Boooooring. Who gives a crap about BS2 multiplayer? Let alone having to download DLC for it before it's even popular, though I doubt it ever will be.

    Adding multiplayer just tells me, someone high up at the game company has no idea what sold the original game. "Ohhh, you know, modern warfare is selling well, and it has multiplayer, we should add multiplayer to this game too."

      Anon, you are dead right. This is like Far Cry 2 multiplayer.... *insert deflating balloon noise here*

        FARCRY 2 MULTIPLAYER WAS SHITTTTTTT

    Um, these characters are available from EB (Australia) if you pre-order the game there. And they're available from GameStop in the US.

    Methinks they won't be available to everyone anytime soon.

    EB have the code as their pre-order bonus too

    BioShock 2 will be released in Japan on March 4 on the PS3 and the Xbox 360.

    No PC? We're not dead yet guys :(
