Bioshock The Collection

Also 'Minerva's Den.'

Announced today for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, 'BioShock: The Collection' will be a remastered version of the original trilogy and the single player DLC. For the console versions, this is all about getting the games up to a 1080p standard. On PC, 'BioShock Infinite' is being left alone as it fits the "current-gen console standards and runs smoothly on high visual settings."

But 'BioShock,' 'BioShock 2,' and 'Minerva's Den' is being remastered with new textures and hopefully some Windows 7 & 10 love. Plus, there will be some nice commentary and concept art extras for the first game. Fortunately, current owners of the PC versions are already in good shape, and by that, I mean they will be getting the upgraded versions for free.

And if you already own BioShock, BioShock 2, and/or Minerva’s Den on Steam, you will be able to upgrade to the remastered version of the respective title(s) for free after release. It’s a circus of values!

So yeah, while PC players already have enjoyed nice versions of all three games, any incoming upgrades will not cost any extra money.
