BioShock has been a series for the ages. Between the original, the sequel, and BioShock Infinite, countless fans have been made. BioShock the first released in August of 2007, a surprising ten years ago. Time really does fly when you're playing great games, doesn't it? BioShock's creators, Irrational and 2K Games are celebrating the series history in a variety of ways.
First, there's a really beautiful video published on the BioShock YouTube channel that is definitely worth checking out. It's a heartfelt thank you to all the fans over the years. Past that, there are two exciting events taking place, and a collector's edition for the ages. The first event is a sale! 2K has dropped the price of BioShock: The Collection. It's available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and has all the BioShock games, DLC, and behind-the-scenes features. Check out local retailers for pricing on this.
An even bigger event for BioShock is going to be happening at PAX West.
