Now here is a pleasant surprise. 2K Games have released a brand new update for BioShock Remastered and BioShock 2 Remastered. These patches come after a whole year since the release of the previous patches. So yeah, it’s kind of cool that 2K Games is still supporting them, though we’d expect to see them… you know… when the games were more relevant?
I mean seriously, I immediately cringed when I saw this official statement:
“Since the launch of BioShock: The Collection, we’ve heard from some of our players about issues some of you have encountered. We hear your feedback and have made several title updates – today, Dec. 5, we will be issuing a third update to PC. “
But anyway, the new patch for BioShock Remastered improves stability on some lower-end machines. Moreover, it fixes an issue where the title will suffer from a fatal crash after the User transitions from level to level throughout the game, as well as an issue where the game would crash when opening any Gene Bank during gameplay. It also corrects the problem where dialogue subtitles cannot be changed when using a mouse in Gameplay Options.
On the other hand, the patch for BioShock 2 Remastered fixes a crash that could occur when pressing the space bar prompt on the loading screen. It also comes with stability improvements on some lower-end machines.
As always, Steam will auto-download these patches the next time you launch its client.
