The Cult of Rapture
has word that the Protector Trials
DLC for BioShock 2
should be released for free tomorrow, which will presumably end a long saga that included plans for the Windows version of the DLC being scrapped
and later revived
, and an incident last month
where it mistakenly appeared on the Games for Windows Marketplace. The announcement also has word that a patch will accompany the DLC release and that they are still working on the PC release of the Minerva's Den DLC. Here's the deal:
I'm happy to announce that the Protector Trials are headed to PC on March 14th - which means that on Monday morning, you'll be downloading away and back in Rapture. (And yes, the Protector Trials are completely free!) Monday will also bring a small patch that fixes, among other things, the mouse sensitivity issues many of you have reported (the full patch notes are below.) We're still working on Minerva's Den and I'll be making a similar announcement to this one as we get closer to a firm launch date for that pack.
Thanks again for your patience, and I look forward to hearing how you fare in the Trials.
- Fixed unlocalized text in Customize Controls screen.
- Player mouse functionality no longer drops out when the Video Card Driver Warning appears.
- User.ini no longer overwritten when game loads. This should address mouse sensitivity issues as well as many v-sync option bugs.
