2K Games has been quiet about the “Protector Trials” and “Minerva’s Den” add-ons for BioShock 2 — namely, why they haven’t released for PC yet. Sadly, the truth of the matter is that they never will. Elizabeth Tobey, the senior manager for 2K’s interactive marketing branch, gave an update on the situation.
“We will not be adding vending machine sounds into any version of BioShock 2 and we will not be adding playlists for the multiplayer DLC maps — we did look in to both options but due to technical and timing issues, these two fixes are not feasible,” she writes. “We are planning patches for the 360 and PS3 to fix some functionality issues, but they will not drastically change gameplay (and I’ll post the patch notes when I get them — these two items are still in with QA.)”
“We will also not be offering ‘Protector Trials’ and ‘Minerva’s Den’ on the PC in the future — and I want to say that I’m sorry for the disappointment this will cause to PC players out there. As always, if any of these issues change in the future, I will update you guys first, but at this point in time I don’t want to make you wait any longer and these are the most definite answers I have and you guys should deem them final decisions.”
Unfortunate, especially considering the quality of “Minerva’s Den.” At least now we aren’t left wondering
