Seeing as the last blog didn't give too much details about the DLC available for Bioshock 2, I shall post up details here for anyone who wants to know what they are getting
.Single Player DLC:Protector Trials:
Released on August 3rd 2010 for both Xbox 360 for 400 MS Points and Playstation 3 for $4.99
This DLC pack gives the player a set of maps, each with 3 challenges and a bonus challenge once all have been completed. The goal for these challenges is simple, protect the Little Sister while she gathers ADAM from a corpse. The way that these challenges become harder is that you only have a certain set of Weapons, Plasmids, Gene Tonics and Ammo. This means that the player needs to consider what they have at their disposal and plan out how they are going to defend their Little Sister. At the end of each Challenge the player is given a score depending on how much ADAM the Little Sister gathered.
There isn't much story in this DLC pack except for that you play as unnamed Alpha Series that was taken out of hibernation by Tenenbaum to defend the Little Sisters as they gather ADAM to weaken Sofia Lamb's plans. The whole pack is set just before the Events of the main game.Minerva's Den:
Released on August 31st 2010 for both Xbox 360 for 800 MS Points and Playstation 3 for $9.99
This DLC pack gives the plater a whole new storyline set in a previously unexplored area of Rapture, Rapture Central Computing, It also gives the player control of another Alpha Series called Subject Sigma. The story for this DLC pack is that Subject Sigma regains consciousness in Rapture Central Computing during the events of the main game. Brigid Tenenbaum and Charles Milton Porter help Sigma to combat Reed Wahl and his control on The Thinker, a supercomputer which controls the computer systems of Rapture.
In this pack is a new weapon and a new plasmid for the player to use against Splicers and other enemies, The Ion Lancer and Gravity Well. The Ion Lancer is a high-tech laser developed in Rapture Central Computing and Gravity Well pulls enemies into a area and then blasts them back out, during which the player can easily attack them using other weapons or plasmids. Instead of players finding Power to the People machines around, players will instead find upgraded versions of weapons around Rapture Central Computing.
There are also some new types of enemies to face in Minerva's Den, such as the Lancer Big Daddy, Fiery Brute Splicer, Wintry Houdini Splicer, Rocket Security bots and Electric Security bots. There are also Little Sisters and Big Sisters present in the area as well, although unlike the main game they will not affect the ending of the DLC story in anyway.Multi-Player DLC:Sinclair Solutions Tester Pack:
