It is now official, the Bioshock collection is headed to North America later this month. 2k Games has confirmed today that the Bioshock Ultimate Rapture Edition will be hitting store on January 14th for $29.99. This collection will include both games (Bioshock and Bioshock 2) and all accompanying downloadable content.
Here's a full breakdown:
Now that is quite a lot, but that's to be expected from a collection. However, I do like the added bits, the Museum of Orphaned Concepts and the Bioshock Infinite stickers. I'd get this collection just for those two items and who knows I probably will.
Museum of Orphaned Concepts: Take a tour of a never-before-seen BioShock museum and view early concept art, character models and more set within the halls of Rapture. Plasmids Pack: Includes four additional Plasmids and Gene Tonics – Sonic Boom, EVE Saver, Vending Expert and Machine Buster – for use in BioShock. Challenge Rooms Pack: Previously exclusive to PS3 and now available for Xbox 360 for the first time, the pack tests the player’s mettle by requiring them to utilize the skills learned while traversing the halls of Rapture to survive three separate puzzle rooms in BioShock. Sinclair Solutions Tester: Contains a number of customization features that allow players to further their character’s development in BioShock 2 multiplayer modes and provides a deeper multiplayer experience. Rapture Metro: Includes six additional multiplayer maps, an additional multiplayer gameplay mode and a rank increase to level 50 for BioShock 2 multiplayer. The Protector Trials: Features frantic combat and fast-paced action designed to push players’ mastery of weapons and Plasmids in a BioShock 2 single-player experience spread across six maps. Minerva’s Den: A substantial narrative experience that puts players in the role Subject Sigma and introduces new characters, locations and mystery to the world of Rapture in BioShock 2. Set in a new environment, Rapture Central Computing, Minerva’s Den adds a gripping new story line to extend the BioShock 2 experience. Also included, is an exclusive collectible sticker pack from BioShock Infinite’s world of Columbia to get gamers ready for the next chapter in the BioShock universe.
