BioShock 2 Metro Map Pack DLC Not Coming This Week After All

Despite Microsoft's unofficial announcement of the Rapture Metro Map Pack for BioShock 2 last week, stating it would be available April 29th, Major Nelson posted on his blog earlier on this evening stating that it wouldn't be coming this week after all.

Meanwhile, 2K have officially come out and acknowledged it on their Cult of Rapture blog, commenting exactly on what it will contain.

"The Rapture Metro Pack is coming soon for Xbox 360, PS3, and Games for Windows Live for 800 MS Point or $9.99," says the blog. "The pack includes six brand new maps including areas rebuilt from the single-player game for MP modes. We also have three new achievements and trophies and have added the Rebirth Feature for players who have reached Rank 50 - using Rebirth, you can rank your character down to Rank 1 and receive a special mask."

No word on its new official release date there either, but they did have the courtesy to give us a couple of screens to gawp at in the meantime.

Is the mask in-game, or is it an avatar award?

How joyful that we have to grind to level 50 and then lose our rank just for an achievement.This is one reason I said screw Bioshock 2.The MP ruined it for me.Freeze anyone?

I like having my games maxed out, but fuck this game's multiplayer. I'm not buying crap like this just for the boring ass achievements.

I hope one of the achievements isn't getting to rank 50. If so, is turret hacking still possible? Does anyone have info about single player DLC?

Wait a second...You lose all of your rank to get a mask? It had better be an avatar mask for all that.

As much as I would have liked to get 100% on this game, I won't.
I'm not paying 800 points for MP that is boring after rank 15 and then only has 3 achievements. If it was 400, maybe even 560, I would have considered it if I built up spare points.

Incase it's DotW sometime, I really do hope there isn't some achievement for getting to 50 then prestiging, oh, sorry, "Rebirthing/Being reborn to rank 1". (Like WaW's f-ing cheap 0 point ones).

Now, if it was single player DLC I would buy it.
It's clear that the MP is going to be dead soon, don't bother trying to revive it with stuff like this, just get the SP DLC out, that's been the best bit of both Bioshock games. (The phrase, "Play to your strengths", comes to mind).

Just so people know, there is an achievement for Reaching Rank 50. The achievement is to use Rebirth which will only unlock once you reach Level 50 so there you go.

I got my 1000GP weeks ago and traded this game in. Single play was OK, but MP was spectacular fail. Do not care about new chevos, I'm sticking with 1000/1000

So prestiging gives you a mask? Whoopdee frippin' doo! Seems dumb to me. I'm guessing ther'll be an achievement for hitting 50 for a 2nd time.
I'll wait for the inevitable goty.

Give us some single-player DLC dammit. That's what I bought the game for, not the crappy, broken multiplayer.

so basically we have to buy both dlc's, one to get to rank 50 then the other so that we will be able to be "reborn" so it'll be $15 in the end, LAME!

False, this pack will also raise the level cap to 50. Think of it as an alternative to the Sinclair Solutions Pack.

As much as I loved both Bioshocks the multiplayer was sooo disappointing and bad, they could of got rid of it and made the story longer. Just saying.

I actually thought the multiplayer was pretty fun. I mean it wasn't revolutionary or anything but I had a pretty damn good time playing it I must say. Not that I could play it for hours and hours on end but it was a good pick up and play for a couple games.

Different strokes though of course.

The multiplayer is wicked and a breath of fresh air from normal MP games by using the plasmids. Frezing is a problem although it doesn't do it half as much as it used to. Wonder if this DLC will have a patch to fix it?

I get a headache when I look at these two achievements:

Win a non-private match in each of the 6 new maps

Use rebirth to start again!

So, let's say you are at level 50 and unlock the rebirth-ability. It would be a bad idea to do so IF you do not already have "Territorial", what do you think? I mean, when you start at Level 1 again it becomes quite hard to in a ranked match without all the upgrades and everything?

Still not too hard to win the team games at low levels if you have a good team.

The main problem with the MP was it is always a case of 1 kill, DIE. 1 kill, DIE....

@27. I didn't suck at all, in fact I found the game quite easy online - it just got boring very fast, and I realized that there are a ton of better multiplayer games that I could be playing.

And when I say broken I mean the game freezing every 30 minutes, so yes it is broken and 2K still haven't fixed it.

@42. I have never had a problem with multiplayer, in fact my average kill to death ratio is 13 kills for 2 deaths. So you must just be bad at the game
