BioShock 2 PC Widescreen Bug Fixed

2K Gamers released a patch on Tuesday that addresses the widescreen issue for BioShock 2 on the PC.

As promised, 2K Games has released a patch that addresses a visual bug with the PC version of BioShock 2. Gamers were complaining that the game was altering the vertical field of view rather than the horizontal out of the box. The end result looked like a letterboxed version of the 4:3 aspect ratio, cropping the top and the bottom.

But as of Tuesday, that problem is no longer an issue. "You'll be able to download the patch starting at 2 AM PST on Tuesday, February 23rd," the company said here. "This patch is small because we focused on getting it out quickly to fix a couple high priority issues the community had, rather than roll them in to a larger patch that would take longer to reach you."

Outside fixing aspect ratio issue, the latest patch also fixes an issue where holding the M1 button would not register in Multiplayer gameplay. 2K Games said that it's working on a larger, "more extensive patch," with testing nearing finalization.

The latest patch will be released via Games for Windows.

    I have been playing Bioshock 2 for the past week on a 1920x1080 display and it looks great. Maybe it only effects 16:10 display ratios?

    Its the type of thing you dont notice unless your looking for it.
    I got this on PS3, wonder if the console versions are affected too?
