Bioshock 2 gets released on October 30 respectively November 3 - New screenshots
With a mysterious website Take 2 announced Bioshock 2. The sequel of the popular game will be released in Q4 2009.
Bioshock 2 will be released to PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 on October 30 in Europe and November 3 in North America. This has been confirmed by publisher Take 2 during a business report.
New details about Bioshock 2 are rather rare though since Take 2 released the some information about the multiplayer part. Take 2 also updated the Bioshock 2 teaser website but didn't deliver any trailblazing information. In our Bioshock 2 preview you can find a lot of details and get an impression of what Bioshock 2 will be like.
Update: June 10, 2009
In the course of the E3 developer Take 2 has released new screenshots of Bioshock 2. Those pictures show impressions of the multiplayer and the single player part. Our comparison below shows the defensive usage of the "Geyser Trap”, a weapon that can be used either defensively or offensively in multiplayer matches. In this case the Geyser Trap is used to evade the Big Daddy.
Furthermore a version labeled with pre-release has been awarded a mature rating by the German rating board USK. Thus the game may only be sold to persons who are at least 18 years old. Actually this is not very surprising since Bioshock 1 also received this rating level from the USK and the ESRB as well.
