Remember that Ultimate Rapture Edition we reported on back in June? It looks like that’s finally happening. Publisher 2K recently confirmed that the special edition is on the way and will bring with it everything but a demo for BioShock: Infinite. That’s unfortunate. Full details after the break.
The Ultimate Rapture Edition will release on January 14th for $29.99 — a fantastic deal even if you’ve already played the games — and will include everything below:
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.
A Museum of Orphaned Concepts — an in-game museum of concept and character art.
I’m bummed there won’t be something related to Infinite, which releases on March 26. Even still, this is an amazing bundle for any BioShock fan who owns a PS3 or Xbox 360 and is itching to return to Rapture.
