2K Games has told Eurogamer that BioShock 2 will still be subtitled Sea of Dreams, despite contrary reports late last week. Someone has been telling porky-pies.

The news arrives amid the first scrapings of media coverage on the sequel. Impressions from our trip to developer 2K Marin are embargoed for a few weeks more.

Nevertheless, we do know you will play as a Big Daddy in BioShock 2, which takes place around seven years after the first game. And not just any Big Daddy, but the very first prototype, which has somehow gained the ability to use ADAM and associated plasmid powers.

As a Big Daddy, you'll stomp around new areas of Rapture choosing either to harvest or protect Little Sisters - a new stock of girls kidnapped from coastal towns by wicked arch-villain the Big Sister.

Plus, there will be multiplayer, although little else has been said on the matter.

BioShock 2 is due out simultaneously on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC later this year.
