    2K Games announces “Minerva’s Den” addition to “BioShock 2″ single-player

    “Minerva’s Den,” a brand-new single-player adventure addition for BioShock 2, was confirmed by 2K Games today. It will be available for all versions of the game, and you’ll have to have the disc to play it. In Minerva’s Den, you’ll play as a brand-new character who is working with Bridgid Tenenbaum to bring down a dictator in the Minerva’s Den area of Rapture. This is a self-contained narrative that 2K president Christoph Hartmann considers a “fitting conclusion to the BioShock 2 saga.” In Minerva’s Den, you’ll explore Rapture Central Computing, wield new weaponry and a new Plasmid, and take on even more new Splicers. Adding to the fun, you’ll also face a new Big Daddy type and upgraded Security Bots that throw rockets and lightning bolts (ouch). No word on pricing or a release date yet.

    The official sequel for “Batman: Arkham Asylum” is “Batman: Arkham City”

    Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, along with DC Entertainment, announced today that Batman: Arkham City will be the sequel to its incredibly awesome Batman title, Batman: Arkham Asylum. The title is expected to ship for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in Fall 2011. Arkham City comes from the same developer as Asylum, Rocksteady Studios, and has you playing in the latest maximum security facility for Gotham’s thugs and baddies – a sprawling “city” in the heart of Gotham itself. So, we’ve got a brand-new story, with some of the same crazy characters, and quite a few new ones to boot. They also claim that they’ve improved the gameplay experience. (What I’m wondering is how that works, since the original was pretty high on the excellence scale.) If you want more information, go to www.batmanarkhamcity.com. There, you can sign up for updates on the game’s progress. Here’s a trailer for the game, first
