Bioshock: The Collection

How Bioshock: The Collection will work on PC

PC specs, how to upgrade, and time of launch.

When Bioshock: The Collection was officially confirmed we were told that you'll be able to upgrade to the remastered version of the respective title(s) for free if you own them on PC. Now we know how this will actually work.

If you already own BioShock, BioShock 2, or Minerva's Den on Steam, the remastered version for the corresponding title will automatically show up in your Steam library as a separate game. You can expect to see the remastered titles begin rolling out in Steam libraries starting at 12am CEST / 11pm BST.

It gets a bit more complicated if you own a physical copy of BioShock or BioShock 2 on PC, or a Games for Windows Live digital copy. To get BioShock remastered on Steam, you must provide your Steam profile information and proof of purchase of the original PC game to 2K Support.

For BioShock 2, you have to find the Games for Windows Live key that was with your digital or physical copy. Activate this key through Steam.

After this it's time to see how much better the remastered versions looks. Will you be able to run them on max?

REVIEW. Written by Magnus Groth-Andersen

"We would've liked a bit more from this collection, but if you've never played Bioshock you owe it to yourself to take a look."
