2K has announced that Bioshock 2 will get its first piece of DLC next month. The “Sinclair Solutions Test Pack” will be multiplayer focused, extending the level cap to level 50 with more rank rewards thrown in.

Two new playable characters, Louie McGraff and Oscar Calraca, will be lining up to get shot in the face whilst concurrently being set on fire. Plus, there will also be 20 new trials, a third weapon upgrade for each weapon and five additional masks.

The DLC will go for 400 MS points on Xbox Live and Games for Windows Live, and £3.19 on PSN. No exact release date has been given, but we’re sure it won’t be long before one is.

If you’d rather have more single-player content then 2K assures you that some will be on the day. This will include “more narrative, new tools and new challenges that extend the lore and fiction of the failed Utopia under the sea.”

This Week’s New Releases (7 – 14 February)

This is a day late because a monkey jumped into my computer and stole my original copy. I spent the rest of the day tracking him down through the wilds of the Internet jungle, seeing sites (see what I did there?) no sane man should ever see and having to escape from a tribe of furries. I finally dived into a river of spam and ended up in Nigeria, where I was scammed out of all my money and had to ride the Internet home clinging to yet another wannabee’s YouTube videos. I finally gave up and stumbled into my bedroom, clothes torn to shreds, to write a new post. So, when you read this, I hope you’ll realise just how much trouble I went to for all of you.

A more simple (and, erm, true) explanation would be that I simply forgot, but that wouldn’t make for an interesting story now would it?

Bioshock 2 is your only big release this week, and it’s also a game I’ve just been playing before throwing it into an ever-growing pile of games I have to complete. I should be happy to be a gamer right now, but it’s time like this where you realise there’s just not enough hours in the day.

Here’s the full list of this week’s releases:

  • Bioshock 2 (PC, PS3, X360)
  • Rollin’ Rascals (DS)
  • Safar’Wii (Wii) – Possibly the lamest pun I’ve ever had the displeasure of reading.
  • Reel Fishing: Angler’s Dream (Wii)
  • Sonic & Knuckles (Wii)
  • Frogger Returns (Wii)
  • Big Catch Bass Fishing 2 (Wii) – Two fishing games in one week? Those three fans are going to be ecstatic!
  • Overturn (Wii)
  • Flips: Percy Jackson (DS)
  • Jonas (DS)
  • Karaoke Revolution (PS3)
  • Memento Mori (PC)
  • Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes (DS)
  • Star Ocean The Last Hope: International (PS3)
  • Phantasy Star Zero (DS)
  • Ninja Blade (PC)
  • Bleach: The 3rd Phantom (DS)
  • Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll (Wii)

2K Games have announced that Bioshock 2, the sequel to critically-acclaimed first-person shooter Bioshock, will be released on the 9th February 2010.

Unlike its predecessor, BioShock 2 will be available on all formats (360, PS3 and PC) when released.
Set ten years after the events of the original BioShock, a monster has been recently been snatching little girls and bringing them back to the undersea city of Rapture. You will then have to step into the boots of the most iconic of figures, the ‘Big Daddy’, to make your way through the decrepit city, chasing an unseen foe, and also marking the debut of the ninja-quick ‘Big Sisters’.

Multiplayer will also be available, as the player acts as plasmid test subject for a company called ‘Sinclair Solutions’.  As the player progresses through the multiplayer maps like Mercury Suites and Kashmir Restaurant they will either have the ability to hack security bots or search for the Big Daddy suit.
