When is the DLC including narrative-exanding single player coming?
I was just wondering if 2K was going to release a DLC schedule for us. I am not sure if that is the norm, to release a schedule, but I am personally very excited for the "narrative-exanding single player content that delves deeper into the lore of Rapture and its inhabitants." (source of quote: Kotaku; link to article)
I understand that 2K has "an 'aggressive post-launch downloadable content plan' for BioShock 2" (Ibid) and I would love to have access to a few more details regarding that plan.
Anyone else curious? If you are anything like me, you may have to pick and choose your downloads, and I want to be sure that I have the points for what I really want.
yeah i would also like to know when the SP DLC is planned to come out money is low and i need to know when i need to have money on my account to buy it
I heard they are releasing something on March 4th.
First DLC is the level cap increase for MP to 50.
There has not been a specific date for the SP DLC. I'm guessing the SP DLC would be around 800 microsoft points (for Xbox) which would be what...like $10?
So plan accordingly based on your budget I guess.
I would be interested to know what the SP DLC entails. There have been essentially no details.
Quick! Check SiTs! Just kidding (sigh)
I would like to know as well but the announcement made it seem like April or later... "In the months ahead" or something like that... I'll pay 50$ if they fix the story.
"fix" why fix??
ten bucks, the SP end version will come out for about 60 bucks...
lets wait for a word from Liz
Because there were many interviews even just before the game's release with statements like "You won't see it coming." and "There are definitely some things that I guarantee are going to surprise players..." and those claims did not hold true for anyone. There's no way the entire community is too stupid that it's right under our noses and just didn't "get it." So I figure it must be in the DLC. Also have you noticed how Jordan Thomas and the Devs log on but have completely stopped answering people's questions? We're all probably hitting close to a nerve they can't respond on because it would ruin their big plans.
Virtues, would kindly explain to me...
i know that BS2 seemed poor when put together the first game, are u talking about new monsters, new SP narrative using the flashback and stuff... like huge "fallout 3" way
I think the big "Twist" was that Delta dies, I mean how many people expected that? Certainly not me. That was quite a big shock for me tbh.
I think the game-play was improved, the decor does not disappoint, the story is deep and thought provoking(compared to most games), but the story just wasn't anything "Amazing." And I really wouldn't care but the developers made some very bold claims and now I feel lied to. I kept up with all of the news and I'm a hardcore fan, even bought the special edition and listened to the LP with friends like a total geek. However, if there is any way for 2K to redeem themselves, it is in the form of this SP DLC. I have faith that it is within their power, and I hope it happens.

thank u Virtues
i share ur point of view, is like the trailers that 2k showed, they had a lot of stuff, but nothing like the game itself...
Seriously guys... this is a thread about when the upcoming DLC will be released. If there's nothing further to be said about the unknown date then don't say anything all. Talking about your opinion of the story of BS2 is irrelevant.
On that note, I would have loved for this MP DLC and SP DLC to be bundled together or atleast released at the same time. Some people don't care about the multiplayer (I am not among them) and just want more single player action. Hopefully the first SP DLC comes out some time next month as well or in April.
It was relevant to the DLC, don't get your panties in a twist. At least we kept the thread higher up so someone at 2K might see it and give an answer. Jeeze... Skim the page for 2K staff if you want a solid date because I can guarantee you no one else is going to know. If you don't want to read it then you don't have to!

I think that threads often act like conversations and another point may arise and therefore discussion may digress a bit . That being said I do hope dates are announced soon.

but they say we'll see flashback scenes
now check the date !!
february 4... 5 days before the release
so i guess we'll be seeing flashbacks on the sp dlc...
but this also kinda tells me that most of it is already on disk
There was flash back scenes in the original SP, that would be what they were refering too.
