BioShock 2 Multiplayer Trailer

BioShock 2 is one of the most anticipated games of the year, and for good reason. The first proved to be surprisingly good and scary, and the gameplay was fantastic. This time around, there will be a multiplayer option, though from what I've heard, a different company altogether is handling the multiplayer facet. Often, when games introduce multiplayer, suddenly the single player option becomes an afterthought. That's obviously not what's happening here, since the design team for the game is able to focus on the game, and the multiplayer team is able to tackle multiplayer.

In its ongoing drip-feed of BioShock 2 details, 2K has let loose the first details of the game's multiplayer campaign. For such a deliberately single-starring narrative experience as the original game was, multiplayer might have seemed an odd choice, but developer Unreal co-developer Digital Extremes are promising something entirely uniquely modeled to capitalize on the game's fiction -- thankfully not simply giving us a Big Daddy Arena.

2K says the multiplayer segment of the game will work in parallel with the single player experience that will be set "during the fall of Rapture," prior to 'Jack's arrival in the first game, with users taking the role of test subjects for the then-experimental bio-enhancing Plasmids.
