Earlier this year we reported on the announcement and subsequent announcement trailer of BioShock: The Collection (read more here). In anticipation of the remastered game’s imminent international release in September, 2K Games has released a new comparison trailer, demonstrating the vast graphical improvements made to the BioShock trilogy.
The game will be remastered at 1080p and will run at 60fps on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, according to 2K Games, watch the brand new comparison trailer below:
Available on current-gen consoles in Australia on September 15 2016, BioShock: The Collection will feature all three games from the BioShock franchise; BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite as well as additional downloadable content, excluding BioShock 2’s multiplayer component.
The remastered editions of the first two instalments will also be made available for Windows PC players as a free upgrade to those who have already purchased BioShock and BioShock 2. 2K Games has decided not to remaster BioShock Infinite for Windows PC as the developers believe that on its highest settings, it had already met the equivalent graphical standard of the updated console version, stating that Infinite “already meets current-gen console standards and runs smoothly on high visual settings”.
The retail copy of BioShock: The Collection will be comprised of two discs and will feature a new director’s commentary titled “Imagining BioShock”, starring creative director and co-founder of Irrational Games Ken Levine.
