How we loved every second spent in Rapture. There’s no doubt the original BioShock earned every bit of its Game of the Year award upon its release and its sequel BioShock 2 looks to be delivering more of the goods we’ve come to love and then some. Don’t believe me? Check out the new trailer for the game dubbed, “Siren Alley”.
Set on New Years Eve of 1970, ten years after the events of BioShock, Rapture is now under the control of a woman named Sophia Lamb, whose ideas of human progression contrasts with the city’s founder, Andrew Ryan. While Ryan believed in the genius of the individual, Lamb believes in collective effort and the power of the community, as well as a philosophy surrounding butterfly imagery, indicating some kind of rebirth. This message is spread by a deranged ex-priest, who has created a cult-like religion around Sophia. Additionally, to maintain order in the city, Lamb has created an army of Big Daddy-like enforcers called Big Sisters. Sophia has dispatched these Big Sisters to abduct little girls from towns on the Atlantic Coast and bring them back to Rapture to create new Little Sisters. On New Years Eve, the prototype Big Daddy from the original production lines re-activates with no re-collection of what’s happened in the past ten years. After scouring the city in a vain attempt to find the Little Sister he was originally paired with, he realizes that Sophia Lamb will lead Rapture even closer to destruction. This leads him to form an uneasy partnership with Doctor Tenenbaum and the former CEO of the plasmid company Sinclair Solutions Augustus Sinclair, in order to overthrow Lamb and her army of Big Sisters.
Look for this title on shelves for the XBox 360 and Playstation 3 and PC on February 9th, 2010.
