2K showcases the improved visuals in Bioshock's remaster


2K has showcased the improved visuals in Bioshock's upcoming remaster in their new "Revisit Rapture" trailer. Here we can see improved shadows and environmental details, making the game much more visually appealing and better suited to modern gaming hardware. 

On thing to remember is that all existing Bioshock and Bioshock 2 owners on Steam will get free upgrades to the upcoming remastered versions when they are released on PC.  


 Working with Blind Squirrel Games, we’ve remastered BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite making them look better than ever*. 

BioShock: The Collection brings the three titles together for the first time, complete with all single-player DLC** and 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.

It’s a circus of values! 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! 




Bioshock Infinite will not be getting a remastered version on PC as the existing version already has the graphical options to "meet current-gen console standards", meaning that the remastered console version will essentially have the same visuals as the existing PC version of the game. 

It is great to see that  2K games are offering gamers this upgrade on PC free of charge, as I am sure that plenty of PC gamers would be glad to pay a small price for the visual upgrade. The Bioshock Remastered Collection will be releasing on September 13th on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Happy days! I know when I first played through Infinite I was already impressed, but upon closer inspection and I know I shouldn't say but they cut huge corners with the model poly counts, when you start noticing the faces and edges they can't be unseen. Simply slapping differed textures on models with 4k images won't cut it for me. I live in hope that they've fixed this.Quote

I hope they improve it and add more ammo, but yeah, huge fan of these remakes/tart ups.

With Dead Island they fixed an awful lot of stuff that was annoying about the originals. The combat is smoother, weapons don't break quite so quickly (yet more realistic IMO) and the graphics? well they're to die for. Both me and my pal, when playing co op would frequently stop to look around to take it all in.

Amazing games are always amazing, however when enhanced they become even better. For example I would much rather have seen a throwback of Fallout 3 using newer graphics than Fallout 4. Whilst I've seen and done everything there is to see and do in FO3 I would put in another few hundred hours in a heart beat if they made it look current.

I loved the original Bioshock and I got quite far in it before becoming annoyed at the lack of ammo. It literally stopped me in my tracks. I completed the latest one though Quote

My main wish is for the weapon/plasmid use to be more akin to BioShock 2's multiplayer rather than having to hard switch between modes.Quote

I know, right. I did the same. Infinite activates on Steam anyway, but isn't getting a PC remaster as it's already "up to next-gen standards".

You can redeem BioShock 2 on Steam using the retail CD key.

You can buy BioShock pretty cheap now on Steam. Shame you missed the Steam Summer Sale. I think I picked it up for ~£3.Quote
