BioShock: Ultimate Rapture Edition

Posted on January 4, 2013 at 12:15 pm by Justin Cavender


2K Games announced today that BioShock: Ultimate Rapture Edition will be available for Xbox360 and PlayStation 3 in North America on January 14, 2013. This edition includes BioShock, BioShock 2, and $40 worth of add-on content. This also includes the Museum of Orphaned Concepts, which is a look at concept art and character models that didn’t quite make the cut.

Add-on Content

  • 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 storyline to extend the BioShock 2 experience.
  • Also included, is an exclusive collectable sticker pack from BioShock Infinite’s world of Columbia to get gamers ready for the next chapter in the BioShock universe.

I would like to point out Steam is currently offering a BioShock Collection which includes the first two games for $9.99. However, this flash sale ends tonight at 8PM PST. Either way, both games are excellent and we would recommend you play them as soon as possible.

BioShock Infinite is scheduled to be released on March 26, 2013 and we can’t think of a better way to get in the mood than starting the series from the beginning. It’s worth mentioning the events in BioShock Infinite are not related to the first two games.
