BioShock 2 Rapture Metro Pack details

 

I’ve been getting some questions about the upcoming Rapture Metro Pack, the next DLC for BioShock 2 that’s coming to Xbox 360 and Games for Windows -LIVE, so I thought I’d help clear up some details.

 

Rapture Metro Pack (800 Microsoft Points):

 

· Six all-new maps built, some built from the single-player portion of the game

· Three new Achievements/Trophies

· Rebirth Feature – Players who reach rank 50 have the option to rank down to Level 1 and receive a special mask

 

And just to update: the content will not be available this week as previously reported.

 

I’ll have more details on timing in the very near future.

  1. Wow. They took the prestige mode from CoD, and managed to make it even more worthless. I /NEVER/ pay attention to masks.

    And further dividing such a sparse community is a horrible idea.

  2. Only time I tried the multiplayer it sat and sat and sat trying to get a game going at about 8pm PDT (so pretty active time). We got up to 5 players once, before it dropped off down to 2 or 3 for about 15 minutes and I gave up.

    Moral of the story…I’m not going to be buying any multiplayer content for this game.

  3. Fail might be thinking Bioshock 2 released “a few weeks ago”…Feb 9th was almost 3 months ago. Not too big on DLC based multiplayer achvs…and everything about Bio 2 has been a slap in the face to anyone who bought it at launch. Broken multi right off the bat, Sinclair solutions was overpriced and really not worth it, and now, to add insult to injury, Gamestop has a promotion where a NEW copy of Bio 2 is $39.99 and includes a promo code for Sinclair for FREE. That deal is the only reason I am considering a purchase, as $39.99+ space bucks for the game and both DLC seems a lot more reasonable…well, it would be if it weren’t suddenly delayed! Hopefully the achvs in BFBC2 are working now, and if not, there is always SSFIV and Agarest.

  4. lol

    So if you cheer after wasting your time to get to Level 50, if you want the mask you need to lose ALL of your status. Excellent! Anyway, I sold Bioshock 2. Never gonna play Single Player again and the multiplayer is still FULL of glitches.

  5. I would have purchased any DLC that was single player for the game, no way I’d waste my cash on multiplayer DLC. Kinda moot now anyhow since I sold back the game a while ago. I wish these companies would realize that they don’t need to tack on MP to games just make a great SP game, focus everything into that.

  6. I really wish they would add some more single player to this game. I enjoyed the game but it felt more like DLC for the first game to me than a game that stands up on its own. It lacked the depth, variety and beauty of the level design that the first game had.

    Sure you can argue its because its recycling the same story much of the time, but I still think it could have been made a deeper game. There just wasn’t really the twists and turns the first game had, the story at the beginning was pretty much the story at the end. The first game had plot twists, this one just ended right where an average game would end. I just hoped for more, but do not get me wrong, I really REALLY enjoyed the game none the less. But the first game was just more “fun” in some ways, even replaying it again later.

  7. @AmsterdamRocks: Oh, I absolutely love the multiplayer component. But I’ve gotten well over 24 hours in at this point. It’s broken in a lot of ways, they have yet to make a single patch, and the community is small enough as it is. Today at 4pm EST, it took me several minutes to get into a game. And usually after a game or two, everyone leaves and you have to wait several more minutes until the game fills up again. Now there is going to be a $10 pack for the already sparse community. We are going to split off into a new game mode and some people will have new maps and some won’t. How will that work? Will there be a new game mode for the new maps? Or will it only use them when everyone has them? Because it’s never going to happen that way. It’s just an extremely bizarre decision, IMO.

  8. After that Sinclair Solutions fiasco it could also turn my 360 into a coffee machine and I still wouldn’t buy it. The fact the mutiplayer sucks is just further nails in the coffin.
    Maybe if it had been offered for free more BioShock 2 owners would go back to the game, now these DLC-specific achievements make me not want to play the MP at all.

  9. I’ve never played MP on Bioshock 2. I’m not going to any time soon since I don’t see a point with all the lag I har about. Another SP playthrough maybe.

  10. r3dreck – so?? I still enjoyed it. I just happen to have a ton of other games to get through so I haven’t been able to get back to it. My son has been playing it for several weeks and he really enjoys it too.

    Anyway, all I was saying was that I enjoyed it and I’m surprised to see that everyone else on this thread didn’t seem to like it.

  11. I found the netcode of the MP the worst thing ever seen in a MP game.
    I managed to reach level 50. I won’t waste a minute on this never again in my life…

  12. What are these, “Trophies” you speak of?

    😛

    Also, is this content also hidden on the disc and will unlock with a download of 120kb or whatever? But I do echo that DLC should be substantial, especially if it’s going to be 10+ dollars. I guess it’s hard to expect all DLC to be like Borderlands and Fallout 3, for example.
