Now Playing: BioShock: The Collection - Announcement Trailer

As announced previously, BioShock and BioShock 2 are being remastered for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, while Infinite is only getting a remastered version for consoles. The Collection for PC does include Infinite, but this will be the regular, non-remastered version.

In addition to the games and all DLC, The Collection comes with a director's commentary program called Imagining BioShock, featuring director Ken Levine and lead artist Shawn Roberston. One other thing to note is that BioShock 2's multiplayer is not included.

The compilation is being developed by Blind Squirrel Games, which collaborated with Irrational Games on the development on the original release of BioShock Infinite.

It costs $60 and launches in North America on September 13, Australia on September 15, and internationally on September 16.

Game Informer first reported the details about The Collection's resolution and frame rate and free PC upgrade offer.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
