It’s been rumoured for months, but now there is solid confirmation that all three BioShock titles will be making their way to Xbox One, PS4 and PC – gloriously remastered!
BioShock: The Collection will arrive on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in North America on September 13, Australia on September 15, and internationally on September 16. That’ll mean you can get your hands on all three Bioshock games, all of the single player DLC and a ton of remastery for modern day machines in one huge value packed bundle. There will also be a never-before-seen video series, “Director’s Commentary: Imagining BioShock,” which includes insights from Ken Levine.
With a ton of awards behind the Bioshock franchise including topping numerous ‘best of’ lists, the series of games are must players for each and every gamer. It may be nine years since we went on the original terrifying journey, five years since we returned to Rapture in the sequel and over three years since we went skyward with Infinite, but chances are you’ll want to play through each experience yet again.
The bundled content for BioShock: The Collection includes:
o The video series, “Director’s Commentary: Imagining BioShock,” featuring Ken Levine, creative director on BioShock and BioShock Infinite and Shawn Robertson, animation lead on BioShock and animation director on BioShock Infinite.
o Museum of Orphaned Concepts: Walk through a Rapture-inspired virtual museum that gives you a behind-the-scenes look at discarded concepts that never made it into the original game.
o Challenge Rooms: Outside the story of BioShock, tackle puzzles, splicers and Big Daddies. And achievements, of course.
- BioShock 2 (**Multiplayer will not be included)
o Minerva’s Den: A self-contained BioShock story, presenting a side of Rapture you’ve never seen before. Use expanded combat abilities with the experimental Ion Laser and chaotic Gravity Well Plasmid, unique to Minerva’s Den, as you face off against the Lancer Big Daddy.
o Protector Trials: Take control of an Alpha Series Big Daddy woken out of hibernation just before the events of BioShock 2.
- BioShock Infinite
o Burial at Sea – Episode 1 & 2 Add-On Packs: This major two-part DLC pack completes the BioShock trilogy by taking the series back to where it all began. Return to Rapture just before the events of the original BioShock!
o Clash in the Clouds Add-On Pack: Face 60 waves of challenges across four additional maps for leaderboard glory and unlock areas to explore in The Columbian Archaeological Society hub museum.
o Columbia’s Finest Pack: Combines the contents of the Industrial Revolution Pack and the Upgrade Pack and includes 500 Silver Eagles, five Lock Picks, six unique Gear items, and two weapon upgrades: Comstock’s China Broom Shotgun and Comstock’s Eagle Eye Sniper Rifle.
