BioShock: The Collection Finally Gets Its Official Announcement

BioShock: The Collection — Announcement

After many leaks, BioShock: The Collection has finally been announced and now we are getting all the BioShock titles in one location for the current gen

Here we go with yet another one of the worst kept secrets in the video game industry as BioShock: The Collection has now been given the full announcement, details, and release date from 2K Games. It only took five different “leaks” and ratings to show up but now we have a nice new collection put together from Blind Squirrel that puts everything in one place for new and old fans alike. All of the BioShock titles bundled up, remastered, and heading out to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on September 13th for $59.99 USD. Not a bad price for a great franchise.

Before the PC master race begins to rabble about BioShock: The Collection and the remastering of the game they should know that the remastering is only coming for the console versions. All of the titles were already spec’d out for the high quality on the PC versions of the games the first time around. This bundle will just be a way to get all of the games and single player DLC in one location for them and all of the little extras coming in the bundle that we never had before. Well, really just a few bits of commentary and challenge modes that were not included the first time around.

Hopefully you noted that above about the single player DLC only as it looks like 2K Games is not going to be bringing any of the multiplayer aspects of the franchise over here. Well, unless you count leaderboards as true multiplayer which I know a lot of you don’t. I know that I don’t. I’m just jazzed to be able to replay all of the games on my PS4 and have little care that the multiplayer was left out here. Good call and now we just need to hope that Blind Squirrel does their part perfectly and gives us the visuals and gameplay we know and expect here.
