Some games need a multiplayer component to it to keep players coming back for more and keep them interested in their game for more than just the time it takes to finish the campaign. When you think of games like that, what comes to mind? I think Halo, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Battlefield and many, many more but those are some very common examples. However, there was one game that I never thought I would be talking about multiplayer for, and that’s BioShock. If I was going to talk about it, I thought it would be with disappointment, but to my complete surprise this wasn’t the case. In fact, it was an experience that was both fun and addicting, and while it didn’t bring anything new to the table, it did a fine job of keeping you coming back. With a persistent leveling system, using the camera during gameplay, all the cool things you can do with plasmids and a few cool twists on common game types. All of these things kept me wanting to play more and made me excited to see what cool new things they could do next as far as DLC or a new game.
While a new game is still probably very far off right now, new downloadable content isn’t and they have released a trailer giving a look at all the new content in this expansion. This new addition will have 6 new maps, each with their own unique feel. We have Pauper’s Drop a more open area compared to the rest, Dionysus Park a very nice looking map with a kind of art gallery look, Fighting McDonagh’s a closer quarters map with a boxing ring in it, Fontaine Fisheries a bleak looking area that has been slightly frozen over, Siren Alley which is an alley way (I know big surprise), and finally Smuggler’s Hideout which is a lair that leads into caves and looks like it will be a lot of fun to explore. Each new map has a unique look to it while still keeping that BioShock feel that many of us have come to know and love.
The only thing that I would have liked to see is a new game type along with these new maps, that would have caught my attention a little more since there’s so much potential. However, this will have to do for now, we still don’t have a confirmed date or price but we suspect that we will have more information soon.
