BioShock 2 Special Edition unveiled

LP, CD, artbook, posters, all sorts.

2K has unveiled the official BioShock 2 Special Edition, which is due out "in most countries worldwide" along with the regular edition on 9th February 2010.

Along with a copy of the game, obviously, the special edition comes in a 13-inch square box with "special art" on the slipcase as well as the box cover, and inside is a mixture of old-school trinkets.

Indeed, you'll be able to transform your home into a corner of Rapture, sort of, thanks to three rolled posters featuring vintage ads (e.g. "Tomorrow's promise... kept today!") and a pair of soundtracks.

There's an actual "vinyl 180g LP" containing the orchestral score from the original game, along with a CD of the BioShock 2 equivalent. Play them both at once!

Elsewhere, there's a 164-page, 8x11-inch hardbound artbook, which promises to be "full of developer commentary".

The Special Edition, pictured below, will cost $99.99 for PS3 and Xbox 360 and $89.99 for PC.

Utterly hot. Check out our BioShock 2 hands-on preview to see what all the fuss is about.
