BioShock 2's first single-player DLC is coming next month

Remember BioShock 2? In case you’ve forgotten, it was a pretty great game. Hell, so far it’s one of the seven best games of the year. But to be honest, the multiplayer aspect of it never really caught us, and since that’s been the focus of all the post-release DLC, we haven’t really gone back to the amazing title. But after this news, maybe we will.

The Protector Trials is the first single-player DLC for the title, and it’s based around defending the Little Sisters as they collect Adam, one of the more fun diversions in the Campaign. It contains six new maps with three levels of difficulty on each, plus new Achivements/Trophies and unlockables, which all sounds like a fair deal for $4.99/400 Microsoft Points. You can check it out when it launches August 3.

    I just pulled out my copy of Bioshock 2, and started playing again. I'm trying to get all the achievements, and I'll buy the DLC for sure.

    Paying for a "protect the sister" mode? Haha! No.

    I really goddamn loved Bioshock 2's storyline... in fact, I honestly felt it was stronger and more effective than the cliche storm that was the first Bioshock games story, but I digress. The fact that it managed to tap into that inner "Papa Wolf" drive in me when it came to protecting the Little Sisters made it effective too especially considering I don't HAVE any children. Anywhoo, and ironically, this DLC does nothing for me... I was hoping for a full DLC chapter but instead got a fairly glorified "Horde Mode". reCAPTCHA: unshaven the (seriously... WHAT!?!?)

    At least it's not 800 points.

    If there are new weapons and plasmids I will get this

    Goddamned it!! Is 2k trying to piss me off?? Bioshock 2 is one of the finest games ever made and they insist on giving us this crap! While I'm glad it's not supporting their terrible dying multiplayer I want something that will enhance the fantastic single player mode.

    What lame DLC. Give us new plasmids, new weapons, and maybe a new "world".
  • JohnnyMaverik - July 1, 2010 7:35 p.m.

    Sounds... dull.
  • NotBraze - July 1, 2010 7:31 p.m.

    This DLC is begging to be a co-op horde-type mode. I wonder why 2K is making it only single player.

    Damn I already sold my copy months ago. Sounds like its just objective based so is it more like the spec ops in MW2?
