One thing is certain -- 2K Marin’s BioShock 2 isn’t a rehash of the original BioShock. If you’re a Rapture purist, however, it’s safe to turn that frown upside down -- tone, style, and yes, even music is very much in the spirit of the source material.

When asked specifically about the soundtrack or mood of the music being retained, the response from 2K Marin was quite positive in that regard.

"The same composer [Garry Schyman] is doing the score, and we’re still figuring out our license and music situation, but it’s going to be all period [1940s] music," developer Hogarth de la Plante said.

"It’s a super important part of the to the BioShock 'soundscape'," developer Zak McClendon quickly added.

Even though BioShock 2 takes place roughly eight years after the original, there’s a reason the music will stay the same -- Rapture is in a bubble ... literally.

"Rapture is a time capsule so even though there’s been a few more years, you’re still hearing the old pretty haunting stuff," developer J.P. LeBreton said. "We’re just looking for a wider variety of it."

So, it’s much more of the same? Sign me up.

It looks like 2K has some more BioShock up its sleeve

Many made the reasonable prediction that with the closing of Irrational Games earlier this year, we'd probably seen the last of the BioShock franchise, at least for a bit. That line of thought may prove to have been a bi...more

These PlayStation demakes transport you to a simpler time

It's never been all about the graphics for me. I can appreciate slick environments and the ability to watch sweat roll down my rugged protagonist's brow. But truth be told, I've always had a thing for PlayStation-era graphics...more
