Dan Webb

According to an e-mail that's been doing the rounds this afternoon from Microsoft, BioShock 2 will be receiving a batch of DLC next week. April 29th to be precise.

The DLC, called the Rapture Metro Map Pack, will feature six new multiplayer maps, a new "Rebirth" feature, two new multiplayer masks, a bonus "Kill 'Em Kindly melee mode" and three new achievements. If that's not enough, the DLC will also raise the multiplayer rank to 50.

The Rapture Metro DLC will be available on April 29th for 800 Microsoft points.

  • Wow.. just sold the game after getting all the achievements. Thanks 2k.
  • Nice might get this as I loved bioshock
  • Very cool, hopefully no "rank 50" achievement though.
  • I might get this. Isn't there supposed to be DLC. For the single-player as well though? Or am I wrong?
  • Isn't the multiplayer rank already 50? And really, new achievements? Ugh, I really wish there were no new achievements. The multiplayer, while fun, is too buggy to not bother fixing.
  • its your own fault for selling it. dont blame them.
  • Too little, too late, I'm afraid.
  • Any sign of a fix for the multiplayer turbo-crashing? Aside from that - awesome!
  • Includes a ton of stuff thats already on the disc plus the fact that this should be free anyways for only 800 disneybucks!
  • Is this one already on the disk too?
  • Figures this is 800 points. I hate that shit. Oh well, at least this multiplayer is casual fun.
  • I don't think this one will be on the disk, and whilst it was a shitty stunt to pull, you have to appreciate the diplomatic side-step of what they said in their article. To paraphrase; If it wasn't on the disk, people who didn't buy it wouldn't be able to play online with people who did. So you can sort of see their point. But I would like to see what they do for this one if that was indeed the case.
  • So they weren't put off by only selling 4 copies of Sinclair Solutions?
  • So does that mean that people who buy it won't be able to play with the people who don't, you know, given their shitty explanation to charging us for the first DLC.
  • getting this. i need a return to rapture
  • i want more single player! still going to get this though because i love bioshock.
  • Multiplayer is fun but not fun enough for me to try to reach rank 50. I want single player DLC!!!
  • Hell yeah, the melee mode should be pretty fun!
  • YAY finally dlc they had it on the dlc bit for ages and please please more story or maybe big sister suits :D
  • 2k games = gay...
  • Sweet. I want single player more than I want multiplayer though. I'll buy it, if only just for the achievements though. And because I love Bioshock and it would kill me knnowing that there is a DLC for it I do not have.
  • It's probably on disc DLC anyway. cough*RIPOFF*cough.....I'll pass
  • Level caps already 50, hope that isn't a typo for 60, not that I really mind lol. Woot for more DLC and achievements love Bioshock so need another fix. And #13 I'm guessing with the sheer amount of people who are above level 40 then more than "4" people bought the Sinclair Solutions pack, cheaper than a McDonalds for more stuff for multiplayer, yes please!
  • I thought Sinclair Solutions already raised the cap to 50?
  • Bugh, multiplayer? Please. Bioshock is a singleplayer game. Period.
  • Bioshocks strengths was single player, so they ditch that idea and try to make a multiplier game that tops everyting else, when that fails they release pointless DLC. Why not release co-op survival or something, 2K just ditch the multiplayer it dosent work..
  • So 2 DLC packs of shite now and still no fix to the MP freezes. This DLC can kiss my scrotum. Very poor show from 2k.
  • The SP wasn't nearly as epic as the first. Didn't like the idea of multiple Big Sisters. Just my opinion tho. It was great, not epic. The MP however was a wild surprise. Was skeptical due to the "MW2 Ripoff" but they did it alright (mainly b/c not everyone is f'ng noob-tubing everyone). It could use some patch work but I think it's [email protected] for now. Picked up the first DLC but will wait on the second for at least another couple weeks. Damn bills :(
  • Really dislike the multiplayer, the campaign was great but definately will not be getting this.
  • This doesn't make sense. The rank is already 50 for anyone that got the first DLC mode. Shouldn't it be 60?
  • Does anyone really care about multiplayer DLC and a few shitty maps? The multiplayer is crap.
  • aw too bad I sold mine cause it's broken and they still haven't fixed it.
  • LOL at completely invalidating the sinclair solutions DLC by having this raise the level cap to 50 anyway. It's 800 points but atleast it has some CONTENT. 6 maps, a new melee mode, a new rebirth feature (whatever that is), raises level cap to 50, and 3 new achievements. I really enjoyed this game's MP so I'll be picking this up because it seems like a good value.
  • Might purchase it, still to buy the 1st DLC too, and MW2 Stimulus, then the L4D2 stuff later in week, and Mass Effects Kasumi dlc, my oh my, the list goes on =)
  • Where's the single player DLC? I think I might sell this game since they all they want to support is the lame Multiplayer.
  • for the love of god don't let one of the achievements be to reach level 50! I already grinded to 40 and I'm sort of tired of the MP, it was fun but too much grinding!
  • 800MSP for maps on a game that nobody is playing online anymore and is still broken? No thanks 2K.
  • The cap is already 50... but now that i see new cheeves ill have to buy this :(
  • I wasted Microsoft points on the first BS DLC, only because I thought their would be achievements since it increased the level limit and prior to that every ten levels earned a cheevo. I got hosed. Now they introduce another DLC this time with cheevos. I really dont want to play this games MP anymore, but I guess if I want that 100% I have to, oh the pain.
  • Is the cap of 50 for everybody or just for the people who bought the sinclair pack? Maybe that's why they include it as a feature, because not everybody can get to 50, I believe.
  • @35 Off course they are doing. That was clear from the beginning. MP-Maps are always quicker to create and take less effeort than SP-Content. MP-Maps=More money than SP-Levels.
  • Just what I wanted, more multiplayer DLC... Multiplayer is bearable until around level 15 then it's boring. Just want more SP DLC rather than this. (Especially if there's more bloody MP achievements). Also, like others have said, I thought the previous DLC raised the level cap for you. Haha, if one of the achievements is for getting to a certain level, I can already see that backfiring on them with folk that are already above/at that level. Sure, it might work, but it does seem like one of these things that could easily cause a mess up with the achievements.
  • Yay...paid DLC. And I was just 4 achievements away from finishing this game.
  • honestly with the bullshit they pulled with the sinclair upgrade pack i wouldnt be surprised if this map pack was also on the disc....fuck that...this shit should be free...and i will not be buying it...cause i probably already own it...
  • No more MP mode achievements please...ugh.
  • Awesome so now I won;t have to get that first DLC and still lvl up to 50^^
  • THREE NEW ACHIEVEMENTS? SON OF A BITCH! Now I need to re-burrow this game. They'll be multi-player too. With the exception of the achievement that required me to become the Big Daddy which was in the standard Death Match mode, all I played was Capture the Sister. This DLC is going to make me play something I don't wanna!
  • I thought the rank was already capped at 50 with the previous dlc? sooo maybe 60 now?
  • @47. Then don't buy it, I like to get 100% completion on games also. But if you are not going to enjoy it, there is no point. The multiplayer in this game gets boring fast, by the time I got to level 20, I decided enough was enough - it just isn't worth the hassle and pointless level grinding to max out your gamerscore.
  • [Comment deleted]
  • Wow. Now all they have to do is fix the goddamn multiplayer so we can actually play it without it freezing every 10 minutes. An absolute slap in the face that they would even consider releasing DLC for the multiplayer and not fix the major problems with it - especially after the game has been out for over 2 and a half months. What a joke.
  • Seriously think it's got to do with some of your connections. I've only been "booted" from one game b/c of lag and Host Quitting. THAT'S what's killing it. It just needs a patch. I find it much more tolerable than Modern LagGlitch 2 where EVERYONE runs nothing but akimbo shotguns and noob tubes. I play with about 5 other people and we always get right into matches and usually finish them.
  • @4 yes there is sp dlc coming just not sure when!
  • @people wondering why the level cap is the same as the last dlc I think it basically means you can reach lvl 50 without having to buy the sinclair solutions dlc.
  • ugh so sick of this damn game.. i'm happy with my 1k and doubt i'll pay any attention to any additional multiplayer. Additional single player in the future may be interesting though.
  • 800 points for 50 achievement point you gotta be out your fucking mind
  • i mean rank 50 and 3 new achievements.
  • Multi-player is trash. Single player story wasn't up to snuff of the first BioShock, and too short. I'll pass on the shitty DLC.
  • Would you kindly make some single player DLC? I'd buy that; not this multiplayer crap.
  • pass.
  • pass at this crappy multiplayer !!!
  • No one cares about the crappy multiplayer!
  • The multiplayer in this game was crap crap crap. I'll pass until they release some actual "playable" DLC
  • Absolutely disgusting, more MP achievements.
  • Boring, add single player stuff if you're going to add anything.
  • The rankings goin up to 50 so i think that means youll only fight 50s...or atleast i think thats what it means.
  • Please not reach rank 50. Please not reach rank 50. Please not reach rank 50. Please not reach rank 50. Please not reach rank 50. Please not reach rank 50. Please not reach rank 50. Please not reach rank 50. There's going to be a rank fifty achievement isn't there? -_- See y'all in the boosting lobby.
  • been playing bioshock 1 alllllllllllllll day, cant wait to get this game, idk about the mp tho
  • @#25 I completely agree I just hate when game developers do that, adding new achievements when you have already achieved 1000G in the game... nevertheless I am looking forward to this, I do enjoy the multiplayer and everything, but... it is originally a single player game
  • 2k u cheap twats the mp sucks hard and 3 new achievements thats rubbish will they every learn
  • as long as we buy it theyl make it whether you like it or not, you dont have to buy it.
  • I wouldn't be so pissed about DLC achievements if MS didn't link them to your game if you didn't buy it. Right now I've got a pointless 90 or so tagged on to Brutal Legend that I'll never get...and now likely these three as well...
  • yay
  • 6 maps for $10 isn't too bad, even if they are rehashes or pre-existing environments.
  • That's awesome if you ask me. Compared to 3 new maps and 2 recycled ones with NOTHING else (cough). New mode, new masks new feature and 6 maps. Schwing.
  • that last content should have been free. and this seems like 400 pts too much. dont know if i will get this seeing that im not to much into the multiplayer.
  • Ugh I fucking hate MP achievements, especially when you need to buy them. Why not just add more single player content or a cliche defend the sister horde mode or something? You know, something that doesn't suck as bad as the MP. I might actually buy something like that.
  • Please GOD fix the freezing issue! That's the only thing stopping me from playing multiplayer again. I'm level 32 and I want to get to 40 before the new maps come out!
  • Wow sucks for anyone who paid for the first dlc. Now they have to buy this one just for the achievements. They should half price it for anyone who bought the other joke of a dlc.
  • Nice, psyched to hear this. Loved the multiplayer. Glad that terrible SP isn't getting supported. The only thing that would make this better is if they raised the level to 60 if you bought both DLC's.
  • until they stop this games shitheap of a multiplayer from crashing constantly then whats the point of bringing out dlc.
  • God damn it 2k stop with the shitty multiplayer and come out with single player dlc cuz thats the only good thing about this game
  • Any takers on betting this is also hidden on the disc?
  • pls god no lvl 50 :(
  • Not getting, the only DLC i'm getting for bioshock is SP.
  • It's actually been confirmed that there are 6 missing maps listed on the disc. I don't know if they are full maps or if, in this case, they are just placeholders, but part of them are definitely on the disc. I actually enjoy multiplayer, lol. I am actually interested in some of the potential maps. If this was real, and not more rip-off shit, it would actually be worth the $10 in comparison to other DLCs for similar things. And normally, I agree with the rage of "BAW ACHIEVEMENTS FOR MULTIPLAYER", but I liked the MP achievements for BS2. They are so piss easy to unlock.
  • if thats a typo for level 60, i will kill someone
  • Everyone can moan but it will still sell by the bucket load. extra trophies/achievements=$$$$
  • @87 i think it is because a previous DLC raised it to 50. I want to know what the achievments are for this but im gueesing they have one for reaching the new highest level.
  • I loved the story in Bioshock 2. But the multiplayer wasn't good enough to keep me around. I'll guess I'll buy this to get the achievements and complete it a second time.
  • Why waste time on multiplayer DLC? Most of us hate playing the multiplayer anyway.
  • mp rocks if you dont agree fine stfu about it already!
  • Wouldnt it be crazy if they made a coop survival mode where everybody is a big daddy and is killing big sisters. Or if htey added Big sister to MP
  • It would be retarted if they added an achievement finish all trials. If they did only 36 more to go. I also agree MP on this game is amazing.
  • great multiplayer so im getting this map pack and it comes with a new gametype and 3 achievements and 6 maps so good deal ive already got my lvl 50 took me about a week to get so i dont have to worry about getting to lvl 50 so i hope one of the 3 achivements is getting lvl 50 so i would get it out of the way
  • i noticed the sinclair solutions tester pack isnt on the marketplace anymore. i searched for it and all i found was avatar items. could it be that it will be included in this dlc? it still depends on my lvl of interest in the multiplayer on wether i will get this or not.
  • idk if I'll get this, but it's not because the multiplayer is crap. the reason why you whiners are complaining is because: - you suck - have a bad connection hell, if I can find this game's MP more enjoyable at times than MW2, then it's pretty good I say.
