Both 2K Marin and Bioware announced their downloadable support plans for their hotly anticipated titles. Kent Hudson of 2K described the company’s “aggressive” DLC plans for Bioshock 2 in a recent interview with Destructoid. No specific details have been mentioned, but the later port of the original Bioshock got a collection of challenge rooms and a new difficulty level when it arrived on the PS3 in 2008.

“Absolutely,” says Hudson,  “We are working on pretty aggressive plans for DLC and that’s actually something that is already underway. That is something that is mostly being run out of the Marin studio because like I said the Australian studio is already ramping up on the next big thing.”

On the less surprising Bioware side of affairs, a company twitter laid out some preliminary information on its planned Day-One DLC for Mass Effect 2.

“Addressing rumors: BioWare will not be charging extra for any new Mass Effect 2 content on launch day. More DLC details next week,”

With the company’s other RPG titan, Dragon Age: Origins, receiving such dedicated support, fans can expect that the science-fiction sequel will fare a lot better than its predecessor in terms of post-launch support.
