Bioshock 2 PC to finally get Minerva's Den DLC May 31

PC owners of 2010's first person shooter sequel -- BioShock 2 -- will finally be able to purchase and download the final single player chapter for the game in a couple of weeks. Publisher 2K Games announced via the Cult of Rapture community site that Minerva's Den, previously released for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game, will be made available for the PC port on May 31. The release will be made via Games For Windows Live and will cost 800 Microsoft points (about $10). The single player only campaign puts the player inside another one of the "Big Daddy" creatures as he explores and takes part in an adventure in another part of the underwater city of Rapture.

Minerva's Den was previously released for the Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles on August 31. At the time a PC release was also planned but later 2K Games announced that the PC port would not be released due to the development team at 2K Marin team running out of time and moving on to other projects. There was a massive outcry from BioShock 2's PC players against this move and a few weeks later 2K Games reversed their decision and announced that Minerva's Den (and another DLC pack, Protector Trials) would be coming to the PC after all. The Protector Trials was released for free for PC owners on March 14.

Of course the next chapter in the BioShock saga is BioShock Infinite from the series' original creators Irrational Games. That title was first announced last August and will be released by 2K Games sometime in 2012.
