After months and months of leaks piling up, 2K Games has finally announced The BioShock Collection for PS4. The remaster comes with a full bump up to 1080p and the frame rate gets a good kick up to the fabled 60 frames-per-second.
The announcement hasn’t really come as a surprise to anyone, what with all the leaks, but it’s nice to finally know that we’re not going crazy. The remastered triology is set to hit PS4 this year on September 13th. The good news is that pre-orders are already available with online retailer Amazon which is selling the game for $59.99 – a full retail offering, then.
