We were told the PC would indeed be treated to Bioshock 2 The Protector Trials (whatevs multiplayer stuff) and Minerva’s Den (a really rather good standalone new singleplayer chunk), despite initial plans to axe it. WE WERE TOLD IT.
Then it didn’t happen. It didn’t happen for so long that 2010 became 2011. So we gave up. I know I did, anyway.
Now, four months later, we’re told it’s still happening. Well, okay then. Hell, sounds like we might even get that patch we were promised 20 years ago or whatever it was.
Said 2K community overlord Elizabeth Tobey on the official forums last week, “As of today, we’re tracking to submit the Protector Trials to certification at the end of January. Minerva’s Den has some more work to be done on it still and is tracking to submit to certification in the beginning of March.
“I’ll let you guys know when we do submit but our release date will change depending on how that process goes (which is why I don’t have a firm release date for you guys yet.) I don’t have a final patch list for you yet, either, but one item I know many of you will look forward to: we have fixed mouse sensitivity issues and many v-sync option bugs.”
March, eh? Only six months later than the promise we’d be getting it. Better late than never, but it seems a shame to do it when interest in the game has surely evaporated. Maybe this’ll reignite it, what with Minerva’s Den being a very conscious System Shock tribute and all.
Any of you play Steve Gaynor’s SHODAN-riff on the console toys?
