BioShock 2 Special Edition Announced

BioShock 2 Special Edition

2K games announced today that they will be releasing a Bioshock 2 Special Edition for the hardcore fans(and the rest of you) of the series. The Special Edition will retail for $99.99 for Xbox 360 and PS3, $89.99 for the PC and will be available February 9th, 2010.

2K games also gave some juicy details on what fans can expect in the Special Edition:

The Special Edition will come in 13″x13″ premium packaging with special art on both the slipcase and the box cover. Inside, you will find three posters featuring vintage ads from Rapture (rolled), a vinyl 180g LP featuring the orchestral score from the original BioShock, a CD containing the BioShock 2 orchestral score, a 164 page 8″x11″ hardbound artbook chock full of developer commentary and, of course, a copy of BioShock 2.

With a lot of publishers looking to make an extra buck with Special / Collectors Edition, this announcement comes as no surprise and gamers can expect a huge hole in their pockets with a few other big games(Splinter Cell: Conviction, Mass Effect 2, God of War 3, Final Fantasy XIII) also launching in the first quarter of 2010. What a great start to the year!

Oh we almost forgot, 2K has also released the Boxart of Bioshock 2 for Xbox 360, PS3 and the PC versions (Click to enlarge)
