BioShock 2 Multiplayer Details Surface
While 2K Marin develops the Campaign for BioShock 2, 2K Games has signed Digital Extremes to craft the game's Multiplayer portion.
BioShock 2's Multiplayer will be set before the events of BioShock during the civil war leading up to the game. Players play as a Plasmid test subject for Sinclair Solutions and can battle in familiar environments around Rapture using a combination of both Plasmids and Weapons.
Overall, this all sounds very interesting and it's rather genius that these details have placed BioShock 2 as both a proper sequel and a prequel all in the same box. I wonder if the game will be mainly team-based Multiplayer, with a few major factions such as Ryan's loyalists and Atlas' rebels. Only time will tell.
I also like how a completely different developer is crafting the Multiplayer experience, allowing 2K Marin to focus solely on an epic Campaign experience. A solid move by 2K Games in my opinion.
