Infinite what? Oh you’re assuming another bit of news on Irrational Games’ newest entry in the series? Nope, come January 14th everything BioShock 1 & 2 wraps up in a nice $29.99 retail package. Dutifully named Ultimate Rapture Edition, look below and see what a meager $30 grants you.
- Museum of Orphaned Concepts: Take a tour of a never-before-seen BioShock museum and view early concept art, character models and more set within the halls of Rapture.
- Plasmids Pack: Includes four additional Plasmids and Gene Tonics — Sonic Boom, EVE Saver, Vending Expert and Machine Buster — for use in BioShock.
- Challenge Rooms Pack: Previously exclusive to PS3™ and now available for Xbox 360 for the first time, the pack tests the player’s mettle by requiring them to utilize the skills learned while traversing the halls of Rapture to survive three separate puzzle rooms in BioShock.
- Sinclair Solutions Tester: Contains a number of customization features that allow players to further their character’s development in BioShock 2 multiplayer modes and provides a deeper multiplayer experience.
- Rapture Metro: Includes six additional multiplayer maps, an additional multiplayer gameplay mode and a rank increase to level 50 for BioShock 2 multiplayer.
- The Protector Trials: Features frantic combat and fast-paced action designed to push players’ mastery of weapons and Plasmids in a BioShock 2 single-player experience spread across six maps.
- Minerva’s Den: A substantial narrative experience that puts players in the role Subject Sigma and introduces new characters, locations and mystery to the world of Rapture in BioShock 2. Set in a new environment, Rapture Central Computing, Minerva’s Den adds a gripping new storyline to extend the BioShock 2 experience.
Turns out a massive collector’s edition of Rapture isn’t “dead in the water?” (Thank Curtis “Zabu_San” Stone for that one). One sizable chunk of new content is The Rapture Museum, consisting of early ideas in the development process . Heck, those cretins holding off on the series since 2007 will have no excuses now, as your humble author takes tremendous grief in the fact that he hasn’t meddled with Plasmids or Big Daddies.
