'BioShock' (X360/PC) Gets Rockin' Three Song Remix CD

by Rainier on Aug. 17, 2007 @ 7:20 p.m. PDT

BioShock will forever change the expectations for the FPS going beyond run and gun corridors, monster-closet AIs and static worlds, creating a living, unique and unpredictable FPS experience. The GameStop and EB Canada exclusive Limited Edition version of BioShock will include an EP remixed CD by Moby and Oscar The Punk.

The three remixed tracks on the CD include Beyond the Sea, God Bless the Child and Wild Little Sisters, variations of which appear in their original format in the game. Music luminaries Moby and Oscar The Punk have joined forces to remix them with the game’s atmosphere in mind.

“While these classic songs from the 40’s and 50’s evoke a happier time, they take on an eerie aesthetic in BioShock’s decaying art deco-designed underwater city of Rapture,” said Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K Games. “Moby and Oscar The Punk have captured that disparity with these remixes and added a new spin to these indelible classics.”

Fans of the game and the music will be able to obtain the CD as part of the Limited Edition version of BioShock, which also contains a figurine of one of the game’s hulking “Big Daddy” creatures, exclusive packaging and a behind-the-scenes DVD.

The CD is also available as a pre-sale gift-with-purchase from video game retailer, Game Crazy.

After your plane crashes into icy uncharted waters, you discover a rusted bathysphere and descend into Rapture, a city hidden beneath the sea. Constructed as an idealistic society for a hand picked group of scientists, artists and industrialists, the idealism is no more. Now the city is littered with corpses, wildly powerful guardians roam the corridors as little girls loot the dead, and genetically mutated citizens ambush you at every turn.
