BioShock PS3 Challenge Room DLC Pack Coming Nov. 20th


When 2K Games announced that BioShock was being ported to PS3 and would get exclusive downloadable content to enhance the experience, I always assumed it’d be free content. You know, to make up for coming a year after the original PC and 360 versions. Boy was I wrong.

2K has fully detailed the BioShock PS3 DLC today and sadly it doesn’t sound like it’ll be worth all the hype. The add-on pack will release on the PlayStation Store worldwide come November 20th and feature a measly three challenge rooms containing puzzles and challenges completely seperate from the main storyline, in addition to new trophies and never-before-seen areas within Rapture. Thing is, it’ll cost you $10 to get this content. Depending how involved the challenge rooms are, they may be worth that price, but judging from the following descriptions it doesn’t sound like they’d take that long to complete.

BioShock PS3 Challenge Rooms:

A Shocking Turn of Events – A Little Sister is trapped atop a Ferris wheel in an undisclosed location in Rapture. Using only the tools and environment around them, players must use their wits to create electricity to power the Ferris wheel and bring the Little Sister to safety.

The I in Team – Using limited resources, and an even more limited arsenal, players must negotiate traps and find a way to defeat a Big Daddy using their wits instead of raw firepower.

Worlds of Hurt – Step up and take on the most grueling challenge offered in the world of Rapture. Players must battle through eight rooms of Big Daddies, Splicers and the worst that Rapture has to offer. Accumulate Adam, build an arsenal of Plasmids, Tonics and Weaponry, and fight through to rescue the Little Sister.

So, whatcha think?
