Since the Games for Windows Live marketplace closed this August, many people started wondering what would happen with their PC games. In the case of Bioshock 2 the answer was easy: the game would be released on Steam.
Canadian studio Digital Extremes was in charge of porting the game to Steamworks. This recently released version features a handful of improvements, including controller compatibility, Steam achievements and Big Picture Mode support.
The Steam version of Bioshock 2 includes all multiplayer DLC, the Sinclair Solutions test pack, the Rapture Metro map pack and single-player “Protector Trials” DLC. The game and all of its downloadable content cost $19.99. Expansion Minerva’s Den is available separately for $9.99. It’s worth pointing out that if you bought the game via Games For Windows Live, you can use that activation key on Steam to unlock the full package.
