Defend Little Sisters in First BioShock 2 Single-Player DLC

PROTECTOR TRIALS ANNOUNCE SCREEN I.JPG

After two fairly uninspired multiplayer DLC packs, 2K Games is finally shifting its attention to expanding upon BioShock 2‘s single-player gameplay. Protector Trials, the first DLC add-on for Rapture’s solo visitors, will be released on August 3rd for 400 MS Points / $4.99 on Games for Windows-LIVE, PSN and Xbox Live. For the fiver, you’ll get six challenge maps in which you will once again suit up as a Big Daddy and defend Little Sisters safe from waves of Splicers while they harvest ADAM. Oh, and you’ll also get unlockable concept art and videos, three difficulty levels, and new Achievements/Trophies.

So yeah, it basically takes exactly what you did throughout the entire single-player campaign, strips out the storyline, and recycles it for a condensed survival mode. It’ll surely be a fun challenge, but I was expecting more than this when 2K announced it would be expanding the game’s solo experience through DLC. But hope isn’t completely lost, as 2K promises that “the next package will expand the narrative, and introduce new tools and new challenges that extend the lore and fiction of the failed utopia under the sea.”
