It isn't official and we're not sure if it'll release in North America, but it's just so awesome that it must be posted.
Eurogamer has spotted a listing (since removed) at the British Board of Film Classification for a "Bioshock Ultimate Rapture Edition." Eurogamer has pasted in the full description so it doesn't really matter if the source yanked the listing or not…it's tooooo laaaate. Cat's outta the bag, guys. 😉
Anyway, this sweet Edition should include both Bioshock and Bioshock 2 and unsurprisingly all the associated downloadable content and add-ons. This isn't a huge shock, as both games were very highly rated and quite popular among gamers. Besides, something like this can help to increase interest in the forthcoming Bioshock Infinite , which is slated for early 2013. As of yet, 2K Games hasn't confirmed anything but we'd expect to see the Ultimate Rapture Edition available for this holiday season. Seems like perfect timing.
We'd offer brief explanations of the two games in question but really, if you're unfamiliar, just play 'em. Seriously.
