2K Games has outlined its plans for the announced downloadable content coming to BioShock for the PlayStation 3.
On November 20, fans of splicing can pay $9.99 for three self-contained Challenge Rooms. The new rooms also offer PlayStation Trophies for clever solutions to the problems they present. The description of the rooms straight from 2K Games follows:
A Shocking Turn of Events - A Little Sister is trapped atop a Ferris wheel in an undisclosed location in Rapture. Using only the tools and environment around them, players must use their wits to create electricity to power the Ferris wheel and bring the Little Sister to safety.
The I in Team - Using limited resources, and an even more limited arsenal, players must negotiate traps and find a way to defeat a Big Daddy using their wits instead of raw firepower.
Worlds of Hurt - Step up and take on the most grueling challenge offered in the world of Rapture. Players must battle through eight rooms of Big Daddies, Splicers and the worst that Rapture has to offer. Accumulate Adam, build an arsenal of Plasmids, Tonics and Weaponry, and fight through to rescue the Little Sister.
$10 is becoming a standard price for meaty downloadable content, but we'll have to see just how much substance there is to these three extra challenges.
Eager Trophy collectors will no doubt be excited, but it may end up too expensive for the casual BioShock player, especially since the game just came out for the PS3 and new players probably haven't finished the main story. More PlayStation 3 News...
