BioShock Infinite

There’s no denying that the BioShock franchise has made quite an impact on the gaming scene. The first two games have made several “best of” lists and the upcoming sequel, BioShock Infinite, is one of the most anticipated games of 2013. For those who have yet to discover Rapture and the series’ highly thought-provoking storyline, 2K games has an awesome surprise for you — BioShock: Ultimate Rapture Edition.

The latest collection bundles the first two BioShock games together the wallet-friendly price of just $29.99. In addition, you’ll be getting a ton of bonus content. Here’s the list of extras you’ll be getting with the package:

  • 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.

2K Games says that the bonus content alone is valued at $40 so you’re getting quite an awesome deal here. It’s also a great way to initiate people into the world of BioShock to prepare them for BioShock Infinite when it finally drops at the end of this quarter (fingers crossed).
