Update: Looks like the DLC will not hit this week as promised, according to the Major, who says he will post an update and more information when he gets it. Bummer, little Splicers.

Original: Just a friendly reminder in case you missed the announcement last week – BioShock 2′s getting some multiplayer DLC lovin’ on Thursday with the Rapture Metro Map Pack.

There’s supposed to be some single-player DLC in the works, and hopefully we’ll hear more about that soon, but until then, here’s what you’ll get.

A couple masks, three Achievements, six maps, a new Rebirth feature, a bonus “Kill ‘Em Kindly melee mode” and the nicety of the multiplayer rank being raised to 50.

It’s out on April 29, and will run you 800 MSP /$9.99.

    Prices going up is never going to be something to celebrate, and steeply priced DLC feels like a ripoff, but I can’t help but wonder about the guys who take offence to all of that.

    You’re dealing with businesses who are always trying to grab what they can, and obviously 5-10 euros extra isn’t stopping us from buying their stuff, so where exactly is the crime? Obviously the prices aren’t too unreasonable.

    People don’t seem to be as outraged by “Deluxe Editions” or “Collectors Editions” even though they either offer cheap crap like this sort of overpriced DLC (Like Mass Effect 2) or significant parts of a game that actually completes it (As with Dragon Age or Settlers 7).

    It’s also interesting to ponder how many of the people offended by it are pirating their games, because that’s the sole justification behind raising prices and introducing abrasive DRM.
