Who’s ready to get Raptured?
I know I am. And all of you BioShock fans will probably agree. Over the years, 2K and Irrational Games have sent us on glorious journeys. Whether immersed in the underwater scape of Rapture or flying among the clouds and buildings of Columbia, BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite have been fan favorites since they hit the shelves. And with so many other beloved titles being remastered for the most updated consoles, many of us have been wondering and wishing for another chance to take on the splicers and Big Daddies armed with the newest set of sticks or keyboards. Well, our time is coming. IGN reports that on September 13, 2016 (September 15 in Australia and September 16 internationally), BioShock: The Collection will land for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Check out the official announcement trailer below:
Of course one of the first questions is, “What’s included in the collection? Just the main games?” We are pleased to say that there is plenty of extra content available for our gaming pleasure, and it’s not going to cost a cent extra than the tag price of $60.
- Director’s Commentary.
- The Museum of Orphaned Concepts with behind-the-scenes views of discarded concepts.
- Challenge Rooms that let you go through the fun of puzzles, Big Daddies and splicers with a whole new group of achievements to boot.
- Minerva’s Den which provides a whole new side adventure with new abilities and baddies
- Protector Trials where you are a Big Daddy, fresh from sleep just before the story of BioShock 2 began
- Burial At Sea Episode 1 & 2 that brings you way back to Rapture to find out what happened before BioShock.
- Clash in the Clouds bombards you with 60 waves of challenges on four additional maps to explore and fight in.
- Columbia’s Finest Pack which takes the in game gear of the Industrial Revolution Pack and the Upgrade Pack including Comstock’s China Broom Shotgun and Comstock’s Eagle Eye Sniper Rifle.
With all of this content plus the three base games, you’d think 2K went crazy charging only $60 for over $100 worth of content. But we don’t think any of us are going to say anything bad about that. Come September, get ready to visit Rapture and Columbia all over again.
