In August, the Games For Windows LIVE service marketplace closed and some of you wondered what would happen to BioShock 2 on PC. We remain committed to supporting BioShock 2 on PC and are excited to announce that starting today the game is available via Steam. Not only that, but the Steam version of BioShock 2 includes all available multiplayer downloadable content, as well as the single player Protector Trials DLC!
With the help of our friends at Digital Extremes, BioShock 2 on Steam fully supports popular features of the platform, including controller compatibility, Steam achievements, and Big Picture mode. Matchmaking is easier than ever now, allowing you to search for any game, as opposed to having to select your game mode. Leveling up is also quicker and easier, as weve fine-tuned the multiplayer experience to be better than ever.
If you have already purchased BioShock 2 through a different digital partner, weve got you covered. Simply take the same game activation key you already own and activate it within Steam. Doing this will grant you access to BioShock 2, all of its multiplayer and Protector Trials DLC, as well as Minervas Den the single player story-driven add-on that includes new weapons, enemies, and plasmids!
