BioShock: The Collection Trilogy Takes Us Back To Rapture As 2K Confirms September Release
So what exactly will fans receive in this latest gaming bundle? You’ll find BioShock, BioShock 2, the latest addition to the series, BioShock Infinite — all of which have been remastered in 1080p and run at up to 60 fps. And just in case you get tired of simply trundling around with just the original content offered in the games, you’ll also receive all single-player add-on content. Also included is a director’s commentary track featuring Ken Levine and Shawn Robertson.
It should be noted that PC gamers have the opportunity to obtain BioShock the Collection for free. If you’ve already purchased BioShock and BioShock 2 via Steam, you’ll receive a complimentary copy of BioShock the Collection. Please note that PC gamers won’t receive a "remastered" copy of BioShock Infinite, because “It already meets current-gen console standards and runs smoothly on high visual settings," according to 2K Games. It will, however, include Clash in the Clouds, Burial at Sea and Columbia’s Finest packs.
The BioShock series was originally developed by Irrational Games, but the remastered collection is being developed by Blind Squirrel Games. If you recall, Blind Squirrel Games also working in conjunction with Irrational Games to develop BioShock Infinite.
BioShock the Collection will be priced at $59.99 at release. While the U.S. will have access to the game on September 13th, it will be released on September 15th in Australia and September 16th for the rest of the world.
