As is the case with most games released these days, BioShock 2 will extend its life beyond the single-player and boxed multiplayer modes with additional downloadable content (or DLC), which 2K Games announced today would be hitting the game "this March".
Sinclair Solutions Test Pack, the first of several planned downloadable packages, contains a number of customisation features that will allow players to further their character's development in BioShock 2's multiplayer modes and provide a deeper multiplayer experience. The pack includes:
  • Rank Increase to level 50 with Rank Rewards
  • New playable characters Louie McGraff and Oscar Calraca
  • 20 new trials*
  • A third weapon upgrade for each weapon
  • Five additional masks*

  • *Some items are only available after a player achieves a rank of 41 or higher.
It's good to see a developer/publisher still backing their game so aggressively, and a setting such as Rapture certainly deserves a bigger story to tell. The DLC, which will be available for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, is the first of many planned additions to the game. We've also included three new screens from the pack, and for anyone who missed it, you can check out our BioShock 2 review right here.

Buy now from Green Man Gaming for only GBP£13.99 (USD$19.99 on Steam)!

Ahh yes, good old DLC available so close to the games release you know it's stuff they cut just to sell to you again.

A game goes gold almost a month before it is released. Also, animators, level designers, etc. are usually not that heavily involved with fixing bugs, so they could start work on DLC before the game goes gold.

Say, how active is Bioshock 2 online?

I've been thinking of buying it, but the only real draw for me will be multiplayer, otherwise I'll just rent it or something

Haha, judging from the small screenshots on the front page it looks like the Na'vi had invaded the Bioshock universe!

Mantorok: To say they started working on this well after the game was finished is hearsay. It could quiet easily have been planned from the start and work was done on the DLC along side the game.

Also is 2 months really enough time to complete and refine a DLC?

Is this argument going to happen in every thread about DLC? Its like the new "sif pay a monthly subscription for a game" argument.

DLC is s***

Khel as long as people argue one way or another without any proof, then yes.
