Catch Up With The Bioshock: Ultimate Rapture Edition

Maybe you love what you've seen of Bioshock Infinite, but remain a little leery because you haven't played previous franchise installments.

Well, 2K Games has just the thing: The Bioshock: Ultimate Rapture Edition! This will be available in North America on January 14 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and it'll hold a very agreeable $29.99 price tag.

Not only does this collection boast both Bioshock and Bioshock 2, it also includes $40 worth of extra content for those titles, including a trip to the never-before-seen Museum of Orphaned Concepts, which will give you a "rare look at early concept art and character models that never made it into BioShock." The total featured add-on content is below:

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.

Lastly, there's a collectible sticker pack showcasing Columbia, the world on display in the upcoming Bioshock Infinite, which is set for March 26.

Considering that I never finished the disappointing BioShock 2, maybe I'll look into this compilation since it has all the DLC. I'll purchase this sometime in late February.

WHen I saw the Hobbit at the theater they played a trailer for this game. I thought, "hey, that looks pretty cool."

(I noticed though the footage was running on a PC. Super slick 60fps and completely jag-free edges)

Minerva's Den is like an extra game, totally cool. The museum kind of reminds me of the God of War museum in the HD remakes, that was kinda neat.

Sadly I've never seen anybody on the Bio2 multiplayer.

if you havent played the previous bioshock games, you deserve a serious slapping!
defiantly will pick this up, ive been wanting to go revisit and i never got to play 2s DLC so this works out perfectly.
wish more games would get expansion packs, who says DLC always has to be MP related?

id be nice if they did a series special collection or something though, like what ubisoft did with AC anthology except actually nice.
really disappointed by that, ubisoft use to make such sweet collectors editions but that was sh*t!
cheap flimsy cardboard, and a tin case.
wow thats such a amazing collectors edition!!!!!
i miss the good old days where collectors editions were actually collectible!
now days there mass produced to the point where stores have such high stock there 80% off RRP 5 years after release.
cough GT5 sig edition, $ony made so many copies you can now walk into any JBHIFI store and pick it up for 70 bucks!
$ony were charging 350 for it on release....
really cheap and flimsy, would of been nice to see something you could actually display on your shelf with pride.
