Please, hold your rapturous applause. After a leak made us all wise to its existence, 2K Games has come out and officially announced BioShock: The Collection, which will contain all three games and all single-player downloadable content that was released. The remastered version of BioShock 2 will not contain the multiplayer component.

In addition to all the previously available content, players will also be able to listen to commentary with creative direction Ken Levine and lead artist Shawn Robertson. There will be other new features as well, such as a BioShock virtual museum of concepts, that players can explore to see content that didn’t make it into the final product. There will also be puzzles and challenge rooms that pit the player against different splicers and Big Daddies.

The collection will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while only the remastered versions of BioShock and BioShock 2 will be coming to Windows PC. The reason for this, according to 2K games, is that BioShock Infinite had already met current standards when it was released in 2013, so there’s no reason for a remaster. However, it will come with Burial at Sea, Clash in the Clouds, and Columbia’s finest.

I can’t speak for anyone else, but I’m absolutely loving this recent trend of remastering everything under the sun. Not only does it give us a chance to revisit some of our favorites, but it also allows to catch games that we may have missed and no longer have access to. As long the remaster effort doesn’t stifle the creation of new games, I’d say it’s a good thing.


BioShock: The Collection will be available September 13th and can be pre-ordered now.
