There are few moments in gaming that put players in awe as much as their introduction to the world of Rapture. These are the memories that Bioshock and the continuing series have given us over the years. Hopefully, more of these great moments will come with future titles. For now, however, it is time to go back and relive everything the Bioshock series has brought us so far.
After many signs of this being a reality, 2K Games has now officially announced Bioshock: The Collection. This bundle will include the 3 main titles in the series. The first two will feature enhanced graphics, as opposed to Infinite which already meets the present console standard. Nothing will be missed here as each game will also be equipped with all the single player DLC that was released. Bioshock 2 will not come with its online multiplayer.
For those who want an in depth look behind the scenes of this masterful franchise, the collection will also have a video series telling the story of the development process with direct commentary by creator Kevin Levine. There will also be a Museum of Orphaned Concepts, showing off design concepts that eventually led to the final cut. Anyone who wants even more gameplay will get just that as well. New Challenge Rooms are being added to give players a chance to try out new puzzles and fight off a slew of enemies.
Steam has also announced that Bioshock 1 and 2 remastered will be free for anyone who owns them on Steam already. Minerva’s Den is being counted as separate from this. Bioshock: The Collection will be released on September 13th for Xbox One, PS4, and PC at $59.99.
