Many of you are preparing yourself for your new adventures through Rapture once more. For many of you this includes the idea of revisiting it in the about-to-be released title of BioShock: The Collection, which will feature upgraded graphics, upgraded performance capabilities, and all content previously released. Luckily for you PC owners that already have the game? That’s going to be fully possible with a few small steps. So how do you do it? Lets get you going.
I Have the Games on Steam. What do I do Now?
If you bought these games on Steam, you’re actually in luck. 2K has announced that they will automatically be placing these versions in your Steam Library so that all you’ll need to do is download them when they are put there on September 15th, 2016 (Thursday). If you don’t receive them? Drop them a support ticket with your Steam purchase history to show you have the games, DLC, and that you are interested in your free copy of the games.
So you’ll want to drop over there to 2K Suppor and let them know what’s going on.
My BioShock: The Collection Ticket is Submitted – PC Specs Required?
Luckily for the large majority of you, the hardware process isn’t going to be a jump in hardware for you to meet. Even medium-to-high-end PCs will enjoy what they can in this newly re-processed version of Rapture. So lets take a look at what you’ll need to get going!
