BioShock 2 details confirmed

You're a Big Daddy. They showed us.

2K Marin give you control of a Big Daddy roaming Rapture in the upcoming BioShock 2: Sea of Dreams for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

You're not just any Big Daddy though - you're the very first one, and you've somehow acquired the ability to inject plasmids, like Jack in the first game.

Unlike the first game though, you will choose between harvesting a Little Sister for ADAM and adopting her, after which you will have to protect her while she harvests ADAM from corpses strewn around Andrew Ryan's failed utopia.

As previously leaked, you're up against the Big Sister, who has been kidnapping little girls from coastal towns and bringing them to Rapture.

The game will also feature multiplayer, although there are no details on that side of the game yet.

All that's courtesy of a Game Informer preview hitting subscriber's hands in the US at the moment, but it's also courtesy of our own recent trip to see BioShock 2 in action at 2K Marin's headquarters just outside San Francisco. Due to the nature of print and online embargoes, you'll have to wait a few weeks longer to read our and other internet thoughts, but they are coming.

We can also tell you that rumours of Soviets, co-op and, er, rhinos are wide of the mark. We'll get in trouble if we spill any other beans, but hey, we like getting in trouble, so we will say this: that Bouncer drill's a bit of a riot.
