I have a confession to make. I’ve never played Bioshock, ever. That’s about to change though as on September 16th Bioshock developers, 2K, will be bringing a fully remastered collection of the much loved series to console and PC.
You can now watch the iconic opening sequence from the original BioShock, fully remastered for modern consoles in the ‘BioShock: The Collection Remastered’ Comparison Trailer. The differences are apparent right from the start and this new trailer highlights the graphical improvements between the original console releases of BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite, and the upcoming BioShock series on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. 2K is bringing all three entries in the much loved BioShock series to PS4 and Xbox One for the first time, with 1080p graphics and up to 60FPS with new and improved textures and art assets created by Blind Squirrel Games. BioShock: The Collection will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC on 16th September, 2016.
Also, today is the release of the teaser trailer for Episode One of “Imagining BioShock”, the Director Commentary series which can be unlocked by finding Golden Reels hidden throughout Rapture in the remastered version of the first BioShock. By collecting these Golden Reels, fans can watch nearly two hours of director’s commentary, featuring Ken Levine, creative director on BioShock and BioShock Infinite and Shawn Robertson, animation lead on BioShock and animation director on BioShock Infinite. 2K will release two exclusive teaser videos every week between now and the launch of BioShock: The Collection, on the official 2K YouTube channel.
BioShock: The Collection will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC on 16th September, 2016.
