Celebrate good times
It’s been a long time coming, but Minerva’s Den for BioShock 2 is worth the wait. The beloved DLC is now yours if you already owned the core game on PC — otherwise, it’s on sale for $4.99. What’s more, Steam Achievements, Big Picture Mode, and full gamepad support are in. And Games for Windows Live and the SecuROM DRM are out!
“If you have already purchased BioShock 2 through a different digital partner, we’ve got you covered,” reads a post by publisher 2K Games. “Simply take the same game activation key you already own and ‘activate’ it within Steam. Doing this will grant you access to BioShock 2, all of its multiplayer and Protector Trials DLC, as well as Minerva’s Den.”
Multiplayer now uses Steamworks and is said to be tweaked. Matchmaking allows players to search for “any game” and character leveling is “quicker and easier.” Hey, some of us actually liked the multiplayer for what it was. Now that this version of BioShock 2 is where it needs to be, if you’re looking to buy, hold off momentarily — there’s a 2K Games sale on Steam this weekend.
