On February 9, gamers will return to Rapture, and 2K Games is rolling out the red carpet for fans. Return to Rapture will feature tons of midnight openings and also for those who order the sequel to the Game of the Year in 2007 bonus characters, Blanche the Actress and Zigo the Fisherman, for use in the multi-player mode. More than 2,500 GameStop and Best Buy stores will host fans of the latest offering in the BioShock series and for late night fans, the Launch trailer will debut tonight on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon during the first commercial break on NBC.

“One of the most exciting aspects of the original BioShock was how our fans responded with adoration for the game, from creating homemade Big Daddy suits to their own BioShock-inspired art and videos,” said Christoph Hartmann, president, 2K. “We felt it was only fitting to reach out to those passionate fans with nationwide Return to Rapture midnight openings where they can pick up their copy of BioShock 2 as early as possible.”
