BioShock 2 and its downloadable content are now available on Steam
Authored by Williams Pelegrin
Microsoft announced that the marketplace section for Games for Windows would be no more back in August, and as a way to still be able to sell the game to users, 2K Games saw fit to have it available on Steam. Thankfully, the Steam release comes with everything users expect, such as Steam achievements, Big Picture mode and full controller compatibility.
BioShock 2 contains a multiplayer mode, which its developer, Digital Extremes, and 2K saw fit to improve upon it. Users will notice several improvements to matchmaking and multiplayer leveling, a nice gesture seeing as BioShock 2 was released in 2010..
Purchasing BioShock 2 through Steam will net users all of its available DLC, which include the Sinclair Solutions test pack, Rapture Metro map pack, and the single-player add-on The Protector Trials. While the bundle normally retails for $19.99, until October 7, it will go for 50 percent off. Minerva’s Den, the game’s single-player expansion, is also on sale for 50 percent off until October 7, when it will revert back to its $9.99 price tag.
For users who already own BioShock 2, activating the game with Steam will allow them to download the game’s DLC, including Minerva’s Den, free of charge.
