Ken Levine, creative director on Bioshock Infinite, has stated in an interview that multiplayer has still not been confirmed for the title.
Probably for the best, Bioshock 2 multiplayer was crap, only reason I played it was to get the trophies.
So did I! But I gotta admit the multiplayer was fun eventually. You just had to think outside of the box. Laying around traps with the plasmids offered a few very interesting moments in the game. :) But I dont think Bioshock needs multiplayer. I think they should just focus on giving us a good single player and then offer some DLC like Minervas Den a few months after the game is released.
They should put something like "Horde mode" at least that would be fun and would keep people playing. And Bioshock 2's multiplayer was fun, the SP aspect of the game was the problem, not the mp aspect of it.
Same here. Ken Levine did a fantastic work with BioShock 1. It was beautifully done, so twisted and amazing, packed full of stuff to discover. I was actually kind of surprised to hear that there was a BioShock 2 in the works. We didn't really need a sequel for it, but I was curious to see how it would turn out. Although it wasn't as good as the first, it wasn't a bad game either. I say they concentrate more on the single player aspect of the game as Infinite is looking more and more awesome.
IM more likely to buy it if it has no multiplayer.
Rather than have multiplayer, they should just offer free DLC for a few weeks after launch. That will stop people from trading the game in.
That would be quite a good idea actually, Burnout gave free DLC for ages, and I still have that game even though I don't play it now.
Good I don't want a tacked on multiplayer mode.
So this doesn't have any big daddies at all? I've been wondering since they announced it.
Please leave it out and focus completely on the sp like bioshock 1.
So I think we can all agree that it does not need multiplayer.
they already said they were NOT putting it in....stupid people wanting stupid things
And they will find a way to complain when it's not there even if the sp is amazing. I suppose the world would be dull without idiots though.
I really doubt this will get MP and good on Irrational. Levine knows what he's doing !
looking for hits! Ken Levine, already stated that there will not be any kind of MP for B.Infinite!
Then why exactly did he say what he said now? Did you even read the article, he basically said that they're thinking about it, but it's unlikely.
I would rather they focus their energy on developing a great single player experience than pull resources away from the campaign to create a lackluster multiplayer mode for the sake of having a multiplayer mode. Maybe it is because I started gaming in the 80's, but I don't think every game needs a multiplayer mode.
Much like Starhawk doesn't need a tacked on single player campaign (also the reason why I'm waiting until it's $30 and hopefully on a digital download; I'd rather just have the multiplayer for a cheaper price as I won't touch the campaign anyways).
Bioshock is a great SP experience and does not need some crappy MP glued on to increase sales versus rentals. Just scrap the MP and concentrate on awesome DLC content and this will push sales versus rentals.
BOO! No MP. However, if you were so inclined to do so, have co-op specific challenges, seperate to the story, for both the chick and Booker.
