Replay value: 2K Games remasters ‘BioShock’ in high-res

Get ready to revisit the depths of Rapture and the skies of Columbia, as BioShock: The Collection has been confirmed.

In a press release, publisher 2K Games has confirmed that all three BioShock games will be remastered and bundled together for a release later this year.

All three games will include all single-player DLC previously released. While the press release stated that the collection will include higher resolutions, there may be more to it than that. Considering this collection is also being released on PC, models and textures will most likely be updated to give it a newer, more pristine look.

BioShock: The Collection

A never-before-seen director’s commentary will also be included with the first BioShock title, Imagining BioShock. It will feature insight from series creator Ken Levine and art director Shawn Robertson.

The collection is being remastered by Blind Squirrel Games. The team already has experience with BioShock Infinite, as it worked alongside Irrational Games to help with optimization, design, UI, and bug fixes. It seems that quite a few publishers turn to Blind Squirrel to help finish games. The studio has also worked on Disney Infinity 3.0, Evolve, Sunset Overdrive, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and Borderlands 2.

The BioShock series has been lauded by critics for its gripping worlds and storytelling. Its game worlds also inhabit very realistic and empathetic characters, like Elizabeth, your companion in BioShock Infinite. Sadly, after the release of Infinite, Ken Levine downsized Irrational Games to just 15 employees, as he was seeking to create more concentrated experiences, ones that didn’t have the stresses of a massive studio. As of now, the team is working on a new sci-fi shooter.

BioShock: The Collection will release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via digital download on September 13, 2016 and will retail for $60.
