BioShock: The Collection Releases Graphics Comparison Trailer

By | 2 months ago 

2K Games releases a comparison trailer for BioShock: The Collection that shows the differences between the anthology’s remastered graphics and the originals.

With just a few short weeks left to go until the release of BioShock: The Collection, 2K Games has decided to put out a new trailer giving fans of the science fiction franchise an idea of how the remastered trilogy’s graphics will look. The video features some of the more memorable moments from the first entry in the series, and shows how the upgraded textures and art of BioShock: The Collection holds up to the original version.

As seen in the comparison trailer below, it seems as if 2K Games’ claim of the titles in BioShock: The Collection running at 1080p resolution and “up to 60 FPS” is accurate, for the visuals look to be a lot more detailed, while the frame rate runs in a much smoother capacity. However, it’s important to note that when BioShock: The Collection releases, the final product has the potential to appear much different than the footage being used to promote the games, especially when one considers the contrasts that are likely to occur between the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One platforms running the anthology.

In addition to the graphics comparison trailer for BioShock: The Collection, 2K Games also released a teaser for the first episode of the documentary series Imagining BioShock that will be included in the compendium for the first-person shooter franchise. Apparently, as written in the YouTube description for the video, fans will play through the remastered versions of the titles and pick up “golden reels,” which give gamers access to behind-the-scenes discussions involving the creation and inspiration for the series.

Found in the clip below, the series is set to provide commentary, in addition to some insight into the creative process behind the games from BioShock‘s creator and current Twilight Zone movie director Ken Levine, as well as the animation lead Shawn Robertson. Although the segment is short, it’s well worth the watch, if only to stoke the coals of anticipation for The Collection‘s release.

Should fans not be completely sold on the impending launch of BioShock: The Collection, they can also check out another trailer offering a glimpse at updated graphics for the franchise’s first installment, which could help make up their minds. Of course, it’s entirely possible for some players to have already had their fill of what currently exists for the series, as they are wanting a new game to be released rather than the remasters. Nevertheless, one can only hope that BioShock: The Collection goes on to sell like gangbusters, and gives 2K Games further incentive to put out another sequel.

What do you think about the graphics comparison trailers for BioShock: The Collection? Are you excited about the compendium due to the updated visuals, because you have yet to play any of the games, or both? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

BioShock: The Collection is set to release on September 16, 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
