BioShock: The Collection previewed in new set of gameplay videos

The release of BioShock: The Collection is just around the corner, and 2K Games has released a group of gameplay videos to show us what we can expect. Confirmed last month, BioShock: The Collection takes the three games in the BioShock series and remasters them for current generation console, giving them support for 1080p and "up to" 60 frames per second.

The original BioShock, which was released way back in 2007, was probably most in need of this remaster, though if you're playing on PC, the original version still tends to look decent. 2K partnered with YouTuber GhostRobo to make these videos, and he takes us through the opening moments of each game. In the video that focuses on the original BioShock, we can see the first approach to Rapture along with a few minutes of early gameplay. It likely looks similar to how many of you will remember it, though the bump up in quality thanks to the jump to 1080p is obvious.

Next up is BioShock 2, the middle entry in the series that puts players in the shoes of a Big Daddy, the hulking brutes from the first game who were tasked with protecting the Little Sisters of Rapture. Interestingly, this is the shortest video in the series. Perhaps that's because we'd already visited Rapture in the first video? Whatever the reason, 2K decided to keep things brief with its preview of BioShock 2.

Finally, we come to BioShock Infinite, the most recent game in the series. Released in 2012, BioShock Infinite is recent enough that it still looks fairly good four years later, and for many (especially those who played on PC), it won't look too much different than it did the first time around. In fact, 2K Games has announced that the remastered version of Infinite won't be included in BioShock: The Collection on PC, as the PC version is still on par with what will the remastered version will offer on consoles.

BioShock: The Collection will feature all of the single-player DLC from BioShock 2 and Infinite, and those who own BioShock, BioShock 2, and Minerva's Den on PC will be able to snag The Collection for free. BioShock: The Collection launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on September 13 in North America and September 16 in the rest of the world.
