BioShock 2 Multiplayer Extends The Fiction


BioShock 2 multiplayer is going to be much more than a tacked-on mode, with 2K Games tapping Digital Extremes to deliver a substantial experience that adds to the lore and fiction of the universe.

2K Games has tapped Unreal contributor Digital Extremes to create a multiplayer mode for BioShock 2 that is every bit as rich and detailed as the single player. Players take on the role of a plasmid test subject for Sinclair Solutions during the fall of Rapture, allowing them to experience yet another aspect of the underwater empire’s history as they progress through the multiplayer experience. Iconic locations like the Kashmir Restaurant and Mercury Suites are being reworked from the ground up in order to facilitate a fast-paced multiplayer experience.

Speaking of experience, players will gain experience as they play through the multiplayer portions of the game, earning them access to new plasmids and tonics. With hundreds of different combinations available, players will be able to develop their own particular play style, which should lead to some very interesting battles.

“The fans asked for a multiplayer experience and we answered,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “With Digital Extremes delivering a multiplayer experience for BioShock 2 that features all of the things that make BioShock unique, we’re holding ourselves to a high standard so that we can deliver the depth and variety that fans of the BioShock universe demand.” 

From the looks of it, 2K Martin is hard at work on single player and mutiplayer, i bet you guys can’t wait.
