BioShock: The Collection announced, launches September
BioShock: The Collection will launch on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in September, the game’s publisher has announced.
2K Games revealed that they had been working with Blind Squirrel Games to bring remastered versions of BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite to the current generation consoles.
According to 2K, the weapons, plasmids, levels and character models have been reskinned and retextured to look “better than ever”.
BioShock: The Collection will contain all three games, as well as all single-player DLC and a never-before-seen video series titled “Director’s Commentary: Imagining BioShock”. Further details can be found below.
The video series, “Director’s Commentary: Imagining BioShock,” featuring Ken Levine, creative director on BioShock and BioShock Infinite and Shawn Robertson, animation lead on BioShock and animation director on BioShock Infinite.
Museum of Orphaned Concepts: Walk through a Rapture-inspired virtual museum that gives you a behind-the-scenes look at discarded concepts that never made it into the original game.
Challenge Rooms: Outside the story of BioShock, tackle puzzles, splicers and Big Daddies. And achievements, of course.
BioShock 2 (Multiplayer will not be included)

Burial at Sea – Episode 1 & 2 Add-On Packs: This major two-part DLC pack completes the BioShock trilogy by taking the series back to where it all began. Return to Rapture just before the events of the original BioShock!
Clash in the Clouds Add-On Pack: Face 60 waves of challenges across four additional maps for leaderboard glory and unlock areas to explore in The Columbian Archaeological Society hub museum.
