BioShock, Borderlands, And XCOM Are All Available On Switch Now--Here's All The Details
2K has launched seven huge games on Nintendo Switch today--here's every way you can buy them, the cost, and the download sizes.
2K has released seven different games from three franchises on the Nintendo Switch today, all of them beloved titles. BioShock: The Collection, Borderlands Legendary Collection and XCOM 2 Collection are now available, and the individual titles within the first two collections can also be bought separately. Each game comes with all previously released DLC.
If you're buying these games digitally, you'll want to hope that you have plenty of space on your SD card--the smallest game in the bunch weighs in at 10.4GB. In total, the seven games weigh in at 103.1 GB.
BioShock 2, which originally launched with a multiplayer mode, features just the campaign, along with the Minerva's Den and Protector Trials DLC packs.
Here's the complete list, including Switch Eshop prices and file sizes.
- BioShock Remastered: $20 (12.5GB)
- BioShock 2 Remastered: $20 (10.4GB)
- BioShock Infinite: The Complete Collection: $20 (20.7GB)
- BioShock: The Collection: $50 (features the three games above)
- Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition: $30 (13.7GB)
- Borderlands: The Handsome Collection: $40 (21.5GB)
- Borderlands: Legendary Collection: $60 (features both games above)
- XCOM 2 Collection: $50 (24.3GB)
XCOM 2 and BioShock port studio Virtuos has said that they believe just about any PS4 and Xbox One game is possible on Switch, with the right studio on the case.
We quickly loaded up XCOM 2--theoretically the most complicated port, as the only game in this list not released on PS3 and Xbox 360--and first impressions suggest a strong port of the 2016 game, with the most notable cutbacks coming in the barracks menus. The screenshots below are taken from an undocked personal Switch unit.
A quick test of BioShock Infinite suggests that it has similarly received a good port, one that performs well and looks fantastic on the Switch's portable screen. Some shots, again taken from a personal undocked Switch, are below.
Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition also looks good on the Switch's portable screen, but this version also adds motion controls, so if you detach the Joy-Cons (or play with a Pro Controller) you'll get some extra precision. Here are some screens taken from the Switch version.
There's a new BioShock in the works right now, although platforms for it have not been announced. If you're a PC user, you can also nab Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for free on the Epic Store right now.
