51 second read


Have you been itching to return to the rapturous world of…err…Rapture? Did you feel slighted when it – like so many other games – was moved to a vague 2010 release? Hopefully this’ll bring a smile to those of you’ve who’ve been submerged in the delay-fuelled depression.

Bioshock 2, from developers 2K Marin and Digital Extremes has been given a solid release date – and it’s it’s not too far away. The game will see a a worldwide, simultaneous release on February 9 2010. That’s right folks – al three versions – PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 – will emerge on the same day.

As a refresher, the single player component of the game has you playing as the first Big Daddy, battling a Big Sister nemesis and takes place 10 years after the original, while the multiplayer component acts as a sort of prequel, allowing you to see the fall of Rapture.

    Wait… how can it take place 10 years AFTER the original if you’re the FIRST big daddy?

    Maybe the first Big Daddy went in to hibernation? Who knows? 😀

    We’ll have to wait until Feb 2010 to find out.

    So we’re 100% sure it’s after the original? For some reason I thought it was a prequel.

    Also, I’m not sure I want to play as a big daddy. I really struggle to see how they’ll capture the spirit of the first one.

    On a related note, I only just finished the original 2 weeks a go, and OMG! What a game! If anyone at all interested in the “Games as art” argument hasn’t finished it, “would you kindly” get off your arse and do so.

    I see what you did there… :happy:

    Yeah, from all the press releases and whatnot it is set 10 years later than the original, with the multiplayer component acting as a prequel of sorts.

    I musta got the MP confused.Shot for the info. Now the question remains Xbox vs PC? Bioshock 1 is honestly the first FPS that I preferred on Xbox over PC, so might have to pay up for it again (assuming it plays the same).
