2K Games has announced that the BioShock: The Collection will be released on September 13th. 2K Games and Blind Squirrel Games have remastered the games for current-gen platforms, and you can view the debut trailer for BioShock: The Collection below.
BioShock: The Collection includes all three BioShock games, complete with all single-player DLC and a never-before-seen video series with commentary from Ken Levine.
2K Games noted that while BioShock 1 and 2 have been remastered for the PC, BioShock Infinite is not. According to the company, the original PC version already meets current-gen console standards and runs smoothly on high visual settings.
It’s also worth noting that if you already own BioShock 1, BioShock 2, and/or Minerva’s Den, you’ll get the upgraded versions free.
