2K Games have announced that they are to release the Protector Trials and Minerva’s Den DLC for Bioshock 2 on PC, having previously stated that they have no plans to do so.
The change in decision was caused by a mass of disappointment from the community, and whilst it won’t be released until December, both are to be made free of charge to PC players.
Such news was made in a lengthy post on the developer’s forums, with select quotes as follows:
"When we announced that Protector Trials and Minerva’s Den would not be coming out for the PC due to technical and timing issues, we received a lot of feedback (much of it understandably expressing disappointment and anger) about our decision."
"Over the past two weeks, we’ve decided to go back and finish the PC patch and Protector Trials. Currently, we are patching the final bugs in these two pieces of content and then will submit everything to certification.
"The cert process can take anywhere up to four weeks, but as we hit major milestones (passing cert or otherwise included) I’ll tell you guys. We are projecting that the patch and the Protector Trials will be ready to cert in December and I’m happy to announce that they will be available free to the community.
"When we stopped development on Minerva’s Den, it was not in a workable state and needed significantly more dev time to complete.
"As of now, we are not certain how much longer it would take to complete the project to our standards, but we have reallocated resources to work on completing the project so PC gamers can have this experience in Rapture along with 360 and PS3 owners."
