It’s a sequel to…

BioShock, a first-person shooter video game developed by 2K. It was released for the Windows operating system and Xbox 360 video game console on 21 August 2007

Set in an alternate history 1960, the game places the player in the role of a plane crash survivor named Jack, who must explore the underwater city of Rapture, and survive attacks, by the mutated beings and mechanical drones that populate it. The game incorporates elements found in role-playing and survival games, and is described by the developers as a “spiritual successor” to their previous titles in the System Shock series.

The game received overwhelmingly positive reviews, being particularly well-reviewed in the mainstream press, which praised its “morality-based” storyline, immersive environment and Ayn Rand-inspired dystopian back-story.

BioShock 2 Story

Storyline

The player takes the role of “Subject Delta”, the first Big Daddy and prototype for the Big Daddies seen in the original game. The character possesses superior speed and intelligence to other Big Daddies, as well as free will. As such, the player uses the Big Daddy’s drill and rivet gun as weapons as well as some other weapons found across Rapture, though the drill does run out of fuel.

The weapons in the game will have several types of ammo, similar to the first game. Alternatively, in contrast to other Big Daddies, the player may also use plasmids, while “upgrade trees” will provide unique ways to upgrade them. A new feature added is the ability to dual-wield plasmids and weapons at the same time. Further Big Daddy abilities found in the first game, such as performing a shoulder dash, will also be an option.
