2K Games announced DLC for Bioshock 2

2K Games has announced DLC plan for Bioshock 2 that will be available over the coming months. The first one, Sinclair Solutions Test Pack, will be released this March for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Three screenshots inside.

Press Release:

Monday 22nd February/... 2K Games announced today an aggressive post-launch downloadable content plan for BioShock®2 that extends and enhances the single and multiplayer experiences by adding more glimpses into the award-winning world of Rapture. Downloadable content will be made available soon, beginning with the Sinclair Solutions Test Pack, available this March from the Xbox® LIVE Marketplace for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Games for Windows–LIVE for 400 Microsoft Points and from the PlayStation®Network for £3.19. Future expansions into the world of BioShock 2 are slated to arrive over the coming months and will continue to expand on the stories of the denizens of Rapture.

“The fans who waited in the snow, rain and cold for the midnight launch of BioShock 2 have spoken and their message is that Rapture still has many fascinating stories to tell,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “Downloadable content is a key part of our efforts to continue to entice the fans that have made 2K a household name - we intend to deliver single and multiplayer content that respects and expands upon one of the greatest fictional worlds ever created.”

Sinclair Solutions Test Pack, the first of several planned downloadable packages, contains a number of customization features that will allow players to further their character’s development in BioShock 2’s multiplayer modes and provide a deeper multiplayer experience. The pack includes:

• Rank Increase to level 50 with Rank Rewards
• New playable characters Louie McGraff and Oscar Calraca
• 20 new trials*
• A third weapon upgrade for each weapon
• Five additional masks*
*Some items are only available after a player achieves a rank of 41 or higher.

In the coming months, 2K Games will also be publishing downloadable extensions of the single player experience that provide new insight into the world of Rapture. These packages will include more narrative, new tools and new challenges that extend the lore and fiction of the failed Utopia under the sea.

Man this generation it's all about the DLC. I wonder who keeps buying all of this stuff because you must be a tool if you do.

So, the game comes out in February and we already have DLC in March?

the increased rank to 50 seems a fairly exploitive move to me.. like you say, the game only hit 2 weeks ago, they known competitive players take ranks seriously.

Also not liking dlc that offers a competitive edge, given this is aimed purely at the multiplayer i would assume a "third weapon upgrade for each weapon" would offer an advantage.

Skins, characters, maps - all fine for multiplayer dlc.. weapons, upgrades? no

Blame the 7million+ MW players who buy the DLC packs. Seriously shame on you for buying the game and double shame on you for buying the DLC.

I have no shame for people who bought MW and enjoyed they game

I have shame on the DLC, dont get me wrong i have also bought DLC for LBP but only because they continue to support so long after its life (and not planning on a second because of it)
Untill they told me i cant play my content offline....ammount of times the PSN store is down and when it is i cant play my DLC for LBP screw you.

DLC 2 minutes after release .. i will make it simple "FUCK and OFF"

Huh? since when has MW had DLC? CoD4 only had the one pack. Which I got free with the GotY Edition, and the second one hasn't had any.
