BioShock PS3 Challenge Rooms Dated and Priced


2K Games announced that consumers will be able to download the vaunted Challenge Rooms for BioShock on PS3 on November 20 th .

Unfortunately, the additional content will cost $9.99 and include just three rooms. Thankfully, from what we saw at E3 2008, the Challenge Rooms are probably worth the price tag even though it was originally slated to be included with the retail release.

Press Release:

November 3, 2008 – 2K Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc., announced today that the PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system exclusive Add-On Game Content for BioShock will be available for download worldwide on November 20 from the PlayStation Network. Consisting of three unique Challenge Rooms that take place outside of the main storyline, the BioShock Add-On Game Content will be available for $9.99 in North America. BioShock for the PLAYSTATION 3 system was recently released to critical acclaim from critics across the industry, earning perfect scores from PlayStation: The Official Magazine and GamePro Magazine, as well as the Editor’s Choice Award from IGN.com.

Each of the three Challenge Room environments was designed specifically for the PLAYSTATION 3 system release and feature new locations, objectives and artwork not seen anywhere else in the game. Additionally, each of the new Challenge Rooms offers new Trophies that can be earned through smart thinking and resourceful playing.

The included rooms are:

  • A Shocking Turn of Events – A Little Sister is trapped atop a Ferris wheel in an undisclosed location in Rapture. Using only the tools and environment around them, players must use their wits to create electricity to power the Ferris wheel and bring the Little Sister to safety.
  • The I in Team – Using limited resources, and an even more limited arsenal, players must negotiate traps and find a way to defeat a Big Daddy using their wits instead of raw firepower.
  • Worlds of Hurt – Step up and take on the most grueling challenge offered in the world of Rapture. Players must battle through eight rooms of Big Daddies, Splicers and the worst that Rapture has to offer. Accumulate Adam, build an arsenal of Plasmids, Tonics and Weaponry, and fight through to rescue the Little Sister.
