Question about pre-order exclusive characters.
Alright, so there was an article on Kotaku a while back (here) about how the multiplayer aspect of the game will have storyline tied to it.
Now I'm planning on getting the game but I was planning to wait until I was done with my finals. However, if there's some sort of plot related to Zigo and Blanche that's only available if you have them, that's going to make me want to pre-order.
So is there any official word if there will be anything special for having these two characters? Or are they just more or less unique skins?
Yup, Zigo and Blanche both have stories, you should definitely pre order.
So wait... each playable character has a unique story attached to the game? I just thought it was 1 general story for multiplayer. Does anybody know if the people that pre-order on steam get these unlockable characters??
aren't Zigo & Blanche Gamestop/EBgames exclusive ? If so I wouldn't think they would be on Steam....
From what I've been reading, I just assumed that every character had the same basic story: They wake up after having injected themselves with Plasmids, they fight and acquire more ADAM and then they die at the end (I'm just guessing on that last part). But I might be wrong because I've tried to watch close to no gameplay videos in fear of spoiling something. It would be amazing if every character had a specific story though.
I think this whole separate story thing for separate characters is just a wild rumour that has got out of hand. I think there is one MP story and the characters are just skins.
Pretty sure this is it. The characters might have a back story but nothing playable and all that.

There is a preview video from a Polish website floating around that shows the feature in use.
So there is at least some incentive to play through each character.
Here's what the Bioshock wiki has to say:
"Each different character that a person chooses in the game will also have some character development, as in cut scenes"
"Jacob will wake up in his apartment, which is located close to Hephaestus" which suggests each character will have a different apartment.
"the player will be given a choice about what they will pick to use first". Didn't know this, I thought you just start with electrobolt, incinerate and winter blast.
And... "Some of Jacob's possible unique clothing options in the game will be a welder's mask, a thick welder's jacket, a muscle shirt, a heavy Hazmat suit type, and a full bodied wetsuit". Again, I didn't know about this. I thought the only customizable clothing for characters was masks.
I honestly don't know if any of that is true, but it was off the Bioshock wiki which seems like a pretty reliable source of information. If it is true, it seems like each character has an incredible amount of depth, which is groovay
Dev confirmation on any of the above points?
