Today the Epic Games Store free title promotion is saying farewell to Borderlands 3, and hello to the twin cities of sub-marine Rapture and cloud-soaring Columbia. Yes, BioShock: The Collection has joined the Epic Games Store and is free as part of their weekly promotion.
BioShock: The Collection consists of remastered versions of BioShock and BioShock 2, their DLC, and BioShock Infinite. Both BioShock 1 & 2 have been remastered with higher quality textures, broader resolution support and improved UI scaling; BioShock Infinite remains relatively untouched as the same title that so controversially launched in 2013.
This version of BioShock Infinite is also bundled with the critically acclaimed Burial at Sea DLC (parts 1 and 2), which delved more deeply into the character of Elizabeth Comstock and Rapture before the fall. The age of all three titles should mean silky-smooth 60fps gameplay on even relatively modest PC hardware.
A word of caution however: some players reported frequent crashing with the Remastered originals when the titles released on Steam a few years ago. There is no word on if the stability of these game versions have been improved for their Epic Games Store launch. Either way, BioShock Infinite is still a game well worth playing (and Burial At Sea is arguably a modern classic).
As a reminder Epic's Mega Sale is still ongoing, with big savings on games running the gamut of small indie through to major AAA title. Check them out here, and we've made a few gentle recommendations here.
