"Sea of Dreams" It Is for BioShock 2

That leaked trailer and title for 2K Marin's followup were legit, just in case you thought they weren't.

A few minutes ago, 2K dropped a nice high-def version of the BioShock 2 teaser that's included with the PS3 release of the original game. That's the same one that leaked out not too long ago, but just in case you doubted its authenticity (we didn't), here it is all official-like. It also confirms that Sea of Dreams is the game's subtitle. What do you think of that? Sounds like an Ink Spots song title or something, so I think it's appropriate to the setting.

Oh yeah, the trailer.

  


GameSpot extracted this quote from 2K on the game's platforms.

BioShock 2 is destined for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC platforms.

You probably saw that coming. No word on what order they're coming out in, or anything, but I'd be surprised to see a timed exclusive scenario like we got with the first one. BioShock is a pretty huge property, but also sort of a known quantity at this point. Brad Shoemaker on Google+

Squeal nice, this should be interesting. The first game was amazing.

I'm curious as to when they think this may be released... I was a pretty huge fan of the first game, and am pretty stoked about any sort of sequel... prequel? Sequel? Little Sister-quel? There's so much we need to know!

So, people actually doubted the authencity of it? Ok.

Sweetness.

Probably me favorite video game IP.  So much there to work with the possibilities are pretty much endless as what they could do with another game.  A sequel should be interesting because oddly enough that is the least expected of the routes to take.  I am already amped for this one but I'm suspecting to not see it until 2010...maybe I'm wrong.

Sea of Dreams.. don't know if I like the Subtitle that much. On one hand I think it fits the era of Bioshock really well, but on the other it may and probably will come off as highly corny to an uninformed audience, which might not be the majority of the people buying Bioshock, but any extra players is always appreciated.

It's also on Xbox Live Marketplace as of today.

Geo-Mod plasmids in Bioshock 2. You heard it here first.

I'm curious to know if Bioshock 2 will show us first hand the revolution within Rapture, but in a different perspective, before the aftermath that we've seen with the first game? A prequel of sorts.

Wish I knew the title to that song.

Posted by sado

HORAY! Song title is Dream by Ella Fitzgerald for those wondering.

So isn't BioShock going to be a trilogy since the original was so successful?  I thought I read that somewhere...

sea of dreams is NOT a sequel to the first BioShock

Posted by lordofultima

Still have to play the first one 2K, so take your time.

I thought Bioshock was extremely overrated.  Game sites like 1UP raved about the plot when RPGs like Xenogears and FFT had better plots years ago.  It wasn't a bad game, just not as good as I was expecting.

Fitting name imo. Can't wait for the sequel.

Posted by Johnny5

Im curious how the continuation will work or if its like  a prequel or something.

Prequels are the thing atm.

Now thats Offical

That trailer gave me goosebumps. Didn't really enjoy Bioshock that much though I have to say.

By the way Sado, although Ella did perform a version of 'Dream', this version I think is performed by The Pied Pipers.
