BioShock: The Collection rated for PS4, Xbox One in Taiwan

2K’s BioShock series will soon make a remastered appearance on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms, a recent Taiwanese content ratings submission revealed.

Taiwan’s Game Software Rating Regulations board additionally outed box art for BioShock: The Collection depicting both the series’ original under-sea setting and the floating city seen in BioShock Infinite, suggesting that the release is a series-spanning compilation.

Though its existence has not yet been confirmed by publisher 2K, BioShock: The Collection will likely feature 2007’s BioShock, its 2010 follow-up BioShock 2, and 2013’s BioShock Infinite, in addition to a slate of previously released downloadable content for all included games.

BioShock, originally released for the Xbox 360 and PCs and later ported to the PlayStation 3, features a twisting narrative in which players navigate the dark halls of Rapture, a once-prosperous underwater city. As players discover the truth behind the city’s downfall, they must grapple with the choice of either freeing or slaying captive children, altering the course of the game’s storyline in the process.

2K Marin took over development duties for BioShock 2, which takes place eight years after the events of the original game. BioShock 2 featured an array of new weapons and supernatural powers for players to collect, and introduced underwater navigation scenes that bridged Rapture’s unstable and collapsing architecture.

BioShock Infinite took the series in an entirely new direction, swapping out the familiar undersea trappings of BioShock and its sequel for the floating city of Columbia. In BioShock Infinite, players wander an expansive cityscape that seems harmless at first glance, but soon reveals itself to be full of corruption and injustice.

All three games hosted several batches of downloadable content and add-ons after their initial release, giving players access to new items and gameplay areas. BioShock 2 is notable for its narrative-focused campaign expansion Minerva’s Den, while BioShock Infinite‘s Burial at Sea featured an alternate-reality take on the events of the game’s original storyline.

A release date for BioShock: The Collection is not yet known.
