After several rumors and leaks; 2K Games has confirmed that BioShock: The Collection is happening and includes the original BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock: The Infinite.
Now we have some more details related to the remastered games’ FPS and PC version. According to 2K Games, BioShock: The Collection will run at a native resolution of 1080p and 60 Frames per Second across Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
This is not all! The studio has also confirmed that PC players who already own the original BioShock, BioShock 2, or Minerva’s Den DLC will be able to get their hands on the remastered version without any additional cost.
Given that BioShock 2 is only for $3.99 USD and Minerva’s Den is about $2.00 USD in the on-going Steam Summer Sale, you can get your hands on them right now and upgrade to remaster later in case you do not have them.
In addition to this, 2K Games has also confirmed that the PC version of BioShock: The Collection will not include BioShock: Infinite remaster as the game already meets current-gen console standards and runs smoothly on high visual settings:
BioShock Infinite is not being remastered on PC because it already meets current-gen console standards and runs smoothly on high visual settings.
Moreover, BioShock: The Collection will not include BioShock 2 multiplayer, but will have all previously released DLC content and a documentary called Imagining BioShock starring the director Ken Levine and Shawn Robertson. All in all, the collection will net players more than $100 of content for only $59.99.
