Do you know what it’s like to be in Rapture, the city that lays in the watery depths of the ocean? Or in Columbia, the floating city in the sky? For some they may be familiar with one or both and for others they may have the slightest clue. Rather you’re looking to experience these two cities for the first time or looking to pay another visit, on September 13th, BioShock: The Collection will be released. This collection will include a remastered version of BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite and all available DLC. Speaking from experience, this video game series is a must play.
The BioShock series is a first person shooter role playing game where you also have various powers through these things called Vigors. Vigors include powers such as Murder of Crows, Devil’s Kiss, and Shock Jockey. You’ll have to use these powers along with various firearms in order to get through the cities of Rapture and Columbia. It’s no walk in the park though because there will be enemies trying to stop you in your tracks such as Splicers, Motorized Patriots, and of course the infamous Big Daddy.
What really gives the BioShock series the praise it has earned throughout these years is the story. In BioShock, you play as Jack who ends up being in a plane crash and finds himself in the city of Rapture and is trying to find his way back to the surface. In BioShock 2, you play as Subject Delta who is a prototype of Big Daddy that is on the task to protect these orphan girls called “Little Sisters.” And in BioShock Infinite, you play as Booker DeWitt who needs to find this girl in order to clear his outstanding gambling debt. What’s interesting about the BioShock Series is that they are all connected, but not in the way that you may seem. I would be giving away too much if I tell you how and anymore so I’ll save that for you to discover.
The BioShock series is definitely some of my favorite games I’ve ever played. When I found out that it would be coming to next-gen consoles I knew I had to pick it up for my PS4. I think it will be cool to play through these games again because you never know what you may have missed on the first play through. Overall it’s just a collection that should be in my gaming collection and yours if anything here peaked your interest. Therefore if you’re looking to pick up the BioShock Collection you’ll have less than a week to wait for it because it will be out September 13th. It will be available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
