BioShock 2 PC DLC/patch lands tomorrow

Rapture Metro Pack and more finally turn up

Mouse-keyboard types will soon get their fair share of BioShock 2 download shenanigans tomorrow, as 2K confirms the late arrival of the Rapture Metro Map Pack and other goodies as well as a heft fix patch.

"The new BioShock 2 [PC] downloadable content will be available for download on Tuesday, May 25th," says 2K. "This includes the Rapture Metro Pack for 800 MS Points, Zigo and Blanche's Character Pack for 160 MS Points, and the new, free Kill 'em Kindly MP mode. The BioShock 2 PC patch will also be out on Tuesday."

The Rapture Metro Pack offers six new maps based on areas from the single player, a rank increase to level 50, three new achievements/trophies and a 'Rebirth' feature that will give players who have reached the top rank the option to rank down to level 1 and receive a special mask.

It's already available on both Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network. It will set you back 800 Microsoft points on Xbox or £7.99 on the PSN.

Here's the full official PC patch notes:
