About three months ago, 2K Games officially announced BioShock The Collection following the rumors, and leaks related to the game in recent past months.

According to the 2K Games, the Collection will be included with all the single player DLCs, running at 1080p and 60 frames per second on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while those who own the original game on the PC will be getting remastered edition for free.

Below are the minimum and recommended system requirements for the collection along with a comparison trailer of the remastered version with the original game;
