BioShock: From Rapture to Columbia deluxe book now available in English

-

We usually sit here telling you about videogames, but just occasionally we’ll also bring details regarding exciting formats outside of the standard scene. What with BioShock being a massive deal in many gamers’ lives, it is only right that we tell you more about the deluxe book from French publishing house, Third Editions – that of BioShock: From Rapture to Columbia.

Becoming available for the first time in English, BioShock: From Rapture to Columbia explores the development of the series, the iconic locations found within and takes in some deep analysis of the entire BioShock lore.

Designed in a high quality hardcover bound book, it also reveals secrets hidden within the mysterious and magnificent cities of Rapture and Columbia, anecdotes on the creation of each game, from the initial concepts to the unforeseen developments that happened throughout production, shaping the franchise into what players know and love today. The book details the series’ connection with real-world history and mythology, the trilogy’s complex and interweaving narratives, and examines BioShock’s inspirations and legacy.

If you are interested, then you can find BioShock: From Rapture to Columbia available on Third Editions’ official website for £22.90 / $29.90 / €24.90. In addition, you’ll also find Third Editions’ growing range of English-language books, following recent translation and publication of French-language titles covering the Zelda, Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy and Dark Souls series.

“When we first wrote BioShock: From Rapture to Columbia, we wanted to make the book as exhaustive as possible, while also bringing our personal point of view and experience,” states Mehdi El Kanafi, Third Editions’ co-founder. “It sums up our editorial line perfectly: ‘be personal to be universal’. We are very excited to finally be able to offer an English version for all BioShock fans to read.”

“BioShock: From Rapture to Columbia continues our vision of what these kind of books can be: comprehensive and relatable, and fantastic accompaniments to the games themselves,” continues fellow co-founder Nicolas Courcier. “This is an ethos that we’re taking forward into our next projects – and we’ll be able to reveal what those books will be, very soon.”

BioShock: From Rapture to Columbia, written by Nicolas Courcier, Medhi El Kanafi and Raphael Lucas, is available now for £22.90 / $29.90 / 24.90€. A Collector edition can also be purchased on the official Third Editions store only, for £27.90 / $34.90/ 29.90€.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
