BioShock: The Collection PC patch is inbound

Remastered editions will soon feel more remaster-y.

When BioShock: The Collection released last week -- bringing together remastered editions of the original and BioShock 2, along with BioShock Infinite -- many fans were dismayed to learn that the remasters were so faithful to the originals, they even contained the same bugs. There's nothing so nostalgic as framerate drops and .exe crashes, boy I tell ya.

Fortunately, publisher 2K has responded promising a fix for many of these bugs in the near future.

"We hear you and we’re happy to report we’re addressing this feedback soon," says 2K community manager Joseph Brant in a Steam post. "Whether it’s your first time in Rapture, or you’re revisiting it again, we want your experience with the BioShock remasters to be as enjoyable as possible."

The update lists several high-priority items the patch is expected to address, including:

  • Fixes for mouse behavior including smoothing, sensitivity and acceleration in BioShock 
  • Additional speaker mode options in BioShock's audio settings 
  • Improved field of view slider options for BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock 2: Minerva’s Den
  • Support for 21:9 display aspect ratio for BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock 2: Minerva’s Den
  • "General stability improvement" to treat game crashing

Though there's no firm release date for this patch, the Steam post reiterates that the fix is inbound "soon," and that players experiencing problems with their BioShock: The Collection remasters should contact 2K's support team.

This is all great news because, as we all know, no one has discussed the BioShock games at length before! Happy Friday, everyone.
