Step back into the unforgettable world of Rapture in BioShock® 2 , the next installment in the franchise that has won more than 50 Game of the Year Awards and has sold more than 2.5 million units worldwide. Developed by 2K Marin, 2K Australia, Digital Extremes and 2K China, BioShock 2 features the perfect blend of explosive first person shooter combat, compelling storytelling, and intense multiplayer to form one of 2010's most highly anticipated titles.         

Set approximately 10 years after the events of the original BioShock, the halls of Rapture once again echo with sins of the past. Along the Atlantic coastline, a monster has been snatching little girls and bringing them back to the undersea city of Rapture. Step into the boots of the most iconic denizen of Rapture, the Big Daddy, as you travel through the decrepit and beautiful fallen city, chasing an unseen foe in search of answers and their own survival.    

Multiplayer in BioShock 2 provides a rich prequel experience that expands the origins of the BioShock fiction. Set during the fall of Rapture, assume the role of a Plasmid test subject for Sinclair Solutions, a premier provider of Plasmids and Tonics in the underwater city of Rapture that was first explored in the original BioShock. Use all the elements of the BioShock toolset to survive, as the full depth of the BioShock experience is refined and transformed into a unique multiplayer experience that can only be found in Rapture.

  • Evolution of the genetically enhanced shooter: Innovative advances bring new depth and dimension to each encounter. New elements, such as the ability to dual-wield weapons and Plasmids, allow you to create exciting combinations of punishment.
  • Return to Rapture: Set approximately 10 years after the events of the original BioShock, the story continues with an epic, more intense journey through one of the most captivating and terrifying fictional worlds ever created.
  • You are Big Daddy: Take control of BioShock's signature and iconic symbol by playing as the Big Daddy, and experience the power and raw strength of Rapture's most feared denizens as you battle powerful new enemies.
  • Continuation of the award-winning narrative: New and unique storytelling devices serve as the vehicle for the continuation of one of gaming's most acclaimed storylines.
  • Genetically enhanced multiplayer: Earn experience points during gameplay to earn access to new Weapons, Plasmids, and Tonics that can be used to create hundreds of different combinations, allowing you to develop a unique character that caters to your playing style.
  • Experience Rapture's Civil War: Step into the shoes of Rapture citizens and take direct part in the civil war that tore Rapture apart.
  • Rapture before the fall: Experience Rapture before it was reclaimed by the ocean and engage in combat over iconic environments in locations such as Kashmir Restaurant and Mercury Suites, all of which have been reworked from the ground up for multiplayer.
  • Veterans add their touch to the multiplayer experience: Digital Extremes brings more than 10 years of first-person shooter experience, including development of award-winning entries in the Unreal® and Unreal Tournament® franchise.
