BioShock 2 to Receive Free DLC

2K Games has confirmed that the PC version of BioShock 2 will receive "The Protector Trials Pack" and "Minerva's Den" downloadable content. Already released on the consoles, the DLC will come to the PC for free in conjunction with a large patch.

The Protector Trials Pack is a single-player DLC that allows players to defend Little Sisters against swarms of enemies throughout a variety of challenge rooms. Minerva's Den, on the other hand, extends the breadth of BioShock 2's single-player by offering a three to four hour campaign side story.

Due to "technical and timing issues," the aforementioned DLC wasn't supposed to make its way to PCs; however, after some criticism from the game's PC community, 2K Games decided to follow through with the port.

"…One of the core principles of the 2K Games community is to keep an open dialogue with gamers and listen to what they have to say," said 2K Games forum representative 2K Elizabeth. She added, "We are a company of gamers making awesome experiences for gamers - and given the conversations we've had over the past two weeks, we've decided to go back and finish the PC patch and Protector Trials."

While there is no specific release date for the downloadable content, the DLC is currently going through the last stages of Microsoft certification.
