It won’t be long now until PS3 owners can put their hands on what’s arguably one of the best and most uniquely awesome shooters in the last five years (or so) — I am of course talking about the PS3 version of BioShock. 2K Games has sent out word that all development on the title has now stopped, as in the game is finished, and that a demo will hit PSN with the weekly update this Thursday.
It’s unknown what the demo will contain but since there really isn’t a single bad level in the game, there’s little reason to worry. If 2K goes the Xbox 360 demo route though, then it will be the very first level.
The full game will hit European shelves on October 17 and a US ones on October 21, bringing with it Trophy support, a new difficulty mode called Survivor and “the addition of all-new Add-On Game Content that will be available for download shortly after launch,” the pricing and availability of which will be specified at a later date.
According to Metacritic, the Xbox 360 version of BioShock is still the one of the highest rated games ever released on the system — it shares the second spot with Valve’s The Orange Box and is second only to the critics’ favorite Grand Theft Auto IV.
