BioShock 2 PC gets 'Minerva's Den' release date

2K finally sets arrival date for long-time-coming PC DLC

The wait is almost over, PC gamers. 2K Marin is finally pulling its finger out and getting the BioShock 2 Minerva's Den DLC expansion released on the mouse/keyboard platform on May 31.


"Minerva's Den will be headed to Games for Windows Live! Within the next day, some of you may notice new achievements appearing - and on May 31st you'll be able to download the final chapter of BioShock 2's story," confirms 2K.

Minerva's Den is a self-contained story taking place in the Bioshock 2 universe. The DLC will allow players to control a new character who has teamed up with Dr. Tenenbaum to liberate a district in Rapture.

As well as new areas, weapons and plasmids the DLC will also introduce Splicers with the ability to "command the power of the elements. It'll cost 800 MS Points.

2K Marin's handling of BioShock 2 on PC has been questionable to say the least. The initial launch was marred by proposed plans for controversial DRM measures, which were subsequently 'scaled back' when the community went mental. Then last October 2K Games caused a bigger stir when it scrapped plans to bring BioShock 2 DLC packs Protector Trials and Minerva's Den to PC due to "timing and technical issues", only to quickly change its mind.
