'BioShock' (ALL) Gets 10th Anniversary Collector's Edition

by Rainier on Aug. 21, 2017 @ 2:05 p.m. PDT

BioShock: The Collection brings the three BioShock titles together for the first time, complete with all single-player DLC and a never-before-seen video series.

10 Years ago today, it started with a plane crash in the North Atlantic Ocean. A lighthouse. A man. A city under the sea.

BioShock: The Collection brings the three titles together, complete with all single-player DLC as well as a never-before-seen video series, “Director’s Commentary: Imagining BioShock,” which includes insights from Ken Levine – over $100 of content – for only $59.99.

If you’ve never experienced the series before, now is the time to play it and see for yourself why the award-winning BioShock franchise has topped countless “Best-Of” lists and garnered more than 125 awards including two BAFTA honors, as well as many Best of E3, Best of Gamescom, and Game of the Year accolades. The weapons, plasmids, levels, and character models that shocked you years ago have been reskinned and retextured to look better than ever. On top of that, all single-player DLC created for all three games comes loaded in one package.

The extremely limited BioShock 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition ($199.99) is now available for pre-order (US only), and exclusive toGameStop (PS4, Xbox One)and the 2K Store for Xbox One and PS4.

Included in the package is a copy of BioShock: The Collection and a collectible Big Daddy and Little Sister statue modeled after the game’s iconic original box art. The 11.9-inch high statue, modeled after the original game’s iconic box art, features a motorized drill and light-up components as well as Big Daddy and Little Sister audio clips from the game.

In honor of the 10-year celebration, we’re dropping the price of the recently released BioShock: The Collection. This remastered set for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One contains all the single player content, DLC, great behind-the-scenes BioShock Museum and a new documentary.

Additionally, for fans looking for the ultimate BioShock 10th Anniversary celebration, 2K announced Return to Rapture, a fan party at PAX West on Sept. 2 that’s open to the public, complete with cosplay contests, music, photo ops, themed food and drinks, and more.
