The final DLC that will be available for BioShock 2 will be called Minerva's Den and be available this fall.  Minerva's Den features and all new single-player experience where you play a brand new character. The game takes place in a different district of Rapture so you'll see some new spaces and play with new wepaons as well as new Plasmids.

What DLC would this be without new enemies to fight as well as new Splicers will be there to try and end your life. You'll also have to deal with a brand new Big Daddy as well as dodging rocket shooting and lightning throwing Security Bots.

The DLC does sound kind of cool and I'm all for seeing new parts of Rapture.


2K Games Announces Minerva’s Den - Narrative-Driven Single-Player DLC That Expands The Storied World Of BioShock® 2
Final installment of DLC introduces new characters, locations and enemies to the world of Rapture later this fall

Thursday 5th August/... 2K Games announced today Minerva’s Den*, an all-new single-player focused downloadable game add-on for BioShock® 2 that introduces new characters, locations and mystery to the fiction-rich world of Rapture. In development for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Games for Windows-LIVE, Minerva’s Den is a self-contained narrative experience that puts players in the role of an all-new character who has teamed up with Brigid Tenenbaum to unravel a dictator’s stranglehold on a key district in the distinctive city under the sea.

“Minerva’s Den is a substantial addition that will give players more of what they’re looking for: more story, more narrative, more gameplay and more of Rapture,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “The core team has created an exciting product that further enhances the mystery and allure of the world of Rapture. Minerva’s Den will be a fitting conclusion to the BioShock 2 saga.”

Prepare to explore Rapture Central Computing, a never-before-seen district of the undersea city, and uncover the dark secrets hidden in its founder's past. Wield new high-tech weaponry and a devastating new Plasmid to best the towering threats in Minerva's Den: more dangerous Splicers that command the power of the elements, upgraded Security Bots that throw rockets and lightning bolts, and even a never-before-seen type of Big Daddy. Developed by 2K Marin, Minerva's Den offers new twists on the story-driven experience that drew players into BioShock 2 when it launched earlier this year.
