SPOILER ALERT!!!

Some confirmed details.







Actual BioShock 2 Details: You Are Big Daddy, Multiplayer Confirmed (Updated) - Shacknews - PC Games, PlayStation, Xbox 360 and Wii video game news, previews and downloads

Quote:
The sequel has players assuming control of "the first ever" Big Daddy, according to creative director Jordan Thomas. Players will be armed with a drill, and will also be able to upgrade their weapons and various plasmids.

As you liberate Little Sisters from other Big Daddies, you'll be able to either Harvest or Adopt them. Adoption apparently lets players escort a Little Sister around levels, fighting off splicers as the Little Sister harvests the all-powerful Adam from corpses.
The information surfaced over at the GameSpot Forums, and was backed up by blurry pictures of the article. The posters there and at NeoGAF also a provided wealth of other details, apparently coming from the same source as the pictures.

While the below details were once unconfirmed, Shacknews has since verified that all of the following information is valid. Additionally, a few points have been updated:
  • The game is set 10 years after the first BioShock.
  • There will be a multiplayer mode, but no details were given.
  • The Big Sister is a grown-up Little Sister, and she's hunting you.
  • Some levels take place on the sea floor outside of Rapture.
  • The Big Sister will periodically pop up after you kill enough Big Daddies. Her arrival is apparently signaled by a Little Sister singing a song.
  • The Big Sister is described as fast and "the hardest thing in the game." She'll utilize telekinesis to throw objects at you or use them as shields.
  • Your drill overheats, and cannot be used constantly.
  • As a Big Daddy, you'll be able to do that nifty shoulder bash move.
  • Upgrade trees are now more diverse.
  • The Incinerate plasmid allows you to throw a fireball or shoot a stream of fire, depending on upgrades.
  • Plasmids can now be combined. For example, mixing Incinerate and Cyclone Trap will result in a flaming trap.
  • Weapons and plasmids can be used at the same time.
  • You can now heal damaged turrets and bots.
  • Players will explore Fontaine Futuristics, which is where the Adam energy is harvested from Little Sisters. Through this, you will learn how the Adam is recovered.

you know I was kinda hoping the "rumored" storyline was the correct one. It seems to fit the www.somethinginthesea.com info more. Would make sense that of the many people that had there Daughter's kidnapped someone would go looking and be crazy enough to stumble onto rapture. Fighting Splicers and Russians would be cool as would watching them fight each other. Then later in the game you could be fighting Russians who have just started to splice. Would be cool to fight Plasmid using enemies thats aren't batshit. And a little spoiler for those who haven't played or beat the first game..... (Highlight to read) In last level don't you pretty much become a big daddy? I know you don't get all the moves that they have or the drill arm but yeah. I hope that I am totally wrong and that the core game will be awesome but for some reason the valid info doesn't make alot of sense to me. But I get we will see later in the year.

The graphics in the original were awesome ... The sound was incredible (very creepy in 5.1) and the game itself was quite unique. We can only hope the second installment is as good and the graphics are, again, cutting edge.

I finished Bioshock a while ago - LOVED the game ! This is the very first DX10 game I played soon after isntalling my new 8800GT OC 512MB and 4 GB of RAM back then and it ran smooth as silk - make sure you have at least 2Gb of RAM for best results......the game is very demanding. I love the water effects.....

Also I'm happy to learn that Bioshock 2 will be developed for the PC as well ! that is great news........ Also Bioshock 3 will be developed as well ! Think they are going to turn this into a successful franchise.

In case anyone wants it I found a site with Scans of the pages of that latest game informer. Though not the clearest you can actually read all the text. After reading everything the storyline seems like it will make Way way more sense than I thought. I am back to being completely stoked about this game again. YAY!

Bioshock 2 All ? Games ? Beta Enjoy everyone!

Ya I'll have to check it out at home. Maybe something on the page isn't agreeing with FF on Mac or my corp. firewall.
