Rapturites (and parasites), rejoice. 2K Marin announced today that the first single-player downloadable content for their nightmarish follow-up BioShock 2 will be surfacing August 3.
"The team at 2K Marin has been working hard ever since the launch of BioShock 2 to develop ways for gamers to extend their time in the single-player world of Rapture," president of 2K Christoph Hartmann said in a statement to the press. “This is just the beginning. More single-player content is on the way that will deliver more of the intense action and story-driven gameplay that fans have been craving."
The Protector Trials pack includes six maps inspired by various locations around Rapture, across which players, as a formidable Big Daddy, will, as always, have to protect their little sisters against waves of vicious Splicers. The pack will also include new items, videos and art to unlock, along with new achievements and trophies.
As for the next round of DLC, 2K says it will be more story-driven and will “expand the narrative, and introduce new tools and new challenges.” Sounds good to me. Any reason to dive back into Rapture is reason enough for me.
Protector Trials will cost $4.99/400 Microsoft Points.
