Possibly the last piece of DLC for Bioshock 2
, Minerva's Den, will be available August 31st for 800 MSP. This DLC is focusing on the single player campaign by introducing new locations and characters. A quick primer from the amazing DavieMarshall's article a month ago:
[Minerva's Den] introduces new characters, locations and mystery to the fiction-rich world of Rapture. Minerva’s Den is a self-contained narrative experience that puts players in the role of an all-new character who has teamed up with Brigid Tenenbaum to unravel a dictator’s stranglehold on a key district in the distinctive city under the sea.
Prepare to explore Rapture Central Computing, a never-before-seen district of the undersea city, and uncover the dark secrets hidden in its founder's past. Wield new high-tech weaponry and a devastating new Plasmid to best the towering threats in Minerva's Den: more dangerous Splicers that command the power of the elements, upgraded Security Bots that throw rockets and lightning bolts, and even a never-before-seen type of Big Daddy.
The never-before-seen Big Daddy is named the Lancer.
