BioShock: Ultimate Rapture Edition launching later this month

BioShock Infinite is set to be one of the biggest games of 2013, but if you’ve yet to experience the BioShock franchise, then boy does 2K Games have the package for you. Officially announced today, BioShock: Ultimate Rapture Edition packs together the first two games in the series, along with their DLC and some interesting bonus content. We’ve known about BioShock: Ultimate Rapture Edition for a while now, as the British Board of Film Classification first revealed the pack back way back in June 2012, but this is the first time we’re hearing any official word about it.

With BioShock: Ultimate Rapture Edition, you’ll be getting the original BioShock along with its Plasmids Pack and Challenge Rooms Pack DLC. One interesting thing to note: the Challenge Rooms Pack DLC was originally exclusive to PS3, but with BioShock: Ultimate Rapture Edition, it’ll be available on Xbox 360 for the first time. Next up we’ve got BioShock 2 and all of its DLC, which includes Minerva’s Den, Sinclair Solutions Tester, Rapture Metro, and The Protector Trials.

In addition to all of that content, players will also be getting the “Museum of Orphaned Concepts,” which offers a glimpse at concept art and character models that never made it into the final product. Finally, you’ll have a BioShock Infinite sticker pack to get you pumped ahead of the game’s March release. BioShock: Ultimate Rapture Edition will be launching in North America on January 14, with an international release set for an unannounced later date. It’ll cost $29.99, which isn’t too bad considering all of the content you’ll be getting.

Then, it’ll be time for the highly-anticipated release of BioShock Infinite on March 26. Fans have been waiting for BioShock Infinite for quite some time now, so here’s hoping it doesn’t get delayed yet again. Are you going to pick up BioShock: Ultimate Rapture Edition, or is 2013 all about BioShock Infinite for you?
