Well, that did it. I’m sold.

The first trailer for Bioshock 2‘s multiplayer mode has popped up exclusively on Gametrailers, check it out!

While everyone’s probably sick of the cutesy 50s-style educational videos now (especially after putting in 100s of hours in Fallout 3), the gameplay footage more than makes up for it.
When multiplayer was first announced most gamers thought it was a silly idea, since the first game had such a stunning single player campaign. There was simply no need for more distraction! But this looks frantic and fun as hell, and you see how perfectly all those plasmids and environmental hazards could work in multiplayer.

Love the character models that you can play as. Plus, battles against the Big Daddy with your friends? It looks almost too perfect…

Bioshock 2 hits stores in early 2010.
