'Have you got your authentication number sir?'

Remember when we were all fussing about the copy protection on Mass Effect, and then there was that compromise where EA said you’d need to authenticate for downloadable content? Well, it’s time to put it all to the test, as the first lump of new content is available: Bring Down The Sky.

Bioshockier and Bioshockier

By Kieron Gillen on October 18th, 2007.

I'm drunk on the floor again, yeah?.

Still-Irrational-To-Us’ Ken Levine has been talking to America’s Games For Windows about possible downloadable content for Bioshock. 1UP have only lobbed up a couple of teaser quotes. Here’s the big one…

“Diablo II, to me, was a great model for an expansion, because it enhanced the original game, but also extended the game, too. I’m not a really big fan of expanding things just by linearly adding to the experience, adding a new campaign, as much as I am of enhancing the original experience and adding replayability to that experience,” said Levine in a post-release interview in the latest issue of Games for Windows Magazine. “I think that certainly BioShock’s combat experience is great, but it could be broader. I’m a little more confused as far as how to expand the narrative experience.”

They also reference the Plasmids that were cut from the game as possible extras. May RPS also remember the other Big Daddies that disappeared in the development route, and suspect that introducing new Splicers would be a welcome addition to Rapture’s ecosystem of Biff.

Anyone got any other ideas for extra content they’d like to see?
