With more and more news concerning Bioshock 2 floating around every day, Deeko have gathered the best “leaked information” and “rumours”. This is information apparently being released in the April Edition of Game Informer. Read on for details.
Spoiler Alert… Maybe.
This information comes directly from Deeko, this will apparently be revealed officially in Game Informer:
-You play as Jake Abbott a private investigator searching for one of the girls kidnapped by Big Sister.
- Jake won’t be the only one investigating Rapture. At some point in the story, Soviet agents arrive from a submarine, hoping to acquire Adam and use it to gain an advantage over the Americans in the Cold War. Soviet enemies will be much smarter than splicers, using cover and flanking maneuvers and working in groups. As the game progresses they will begin splicing themselves and be able to use plasmids against you. The Soviets and splicers will fight against each other and the player can use that to their advantage. ”
-Game takes place in 1967, 7 years after the original
-A cutscene starts the game off In New York City as Jack intercepts the Big Sister kidnapping his daughter in his beachhouse. He follows it to the near by shores as it submerges into the water
-Epic boss battles and underwater gameplay. Much of Rapture is now flooded and you will need to don a diving suit to explore these areas as well as venture outside Rapture itself. An underwater boss fight was shown with a gigantic squid, which can cloak itself and use its massive tentacles to smash into Rapture and hurl debris. One of the concept artworks hinted at a boss battle with a mutated, spliced rhino in Rapture’s zoo.
Solving the whole Big Sister debate:
-Only one Big Sister (Mastermind of game)
-Big Daddies are no longer in the game, but new enemies include dogs and soviets
Some other goodies
-Completely new levels of Rapture, including a fully explorable zoo.
-Underwater exploration levels
-New weapons and plasmids (Including a telepathy and time control)
-2 Player co-op. (No mention on who second player is)
-New Health and Revival System
Now this all sounds well and good, but it’s all a little bit iffy to me. Co-op doesn’t sound like the sort of thing that would get leaked, it’s the kind of info that would be kept under lock and key. As well as the extinction of the Big Daddy and the fact there’s only 1 Big Sister. What do you think readers? Does this sound like reliable info to you?
I guess we’ll have to wait for Game Informer to release to understand what’s real and what’s not. 2K have denied the rumours, to a degree. Check out the scoop here: Game Informer
