2K games has announced that it is bringing the original 2007 BioShock gameÂ to iPhone and iPad later this summer, via Engadget. Graphics have been toned downÂ significantly from the original XboxÂ title, but the game will no doubt offer plenty of nostalgiaÂ for fans of the series.
“BioShock delivers a true triple-A first-person shooter game experience on the iOS platform, by sending players on an underwater adventure to explore the submerged Art Deco city of Rapture, fighting deranged survivors of a failed objectivist utopia and genetically modifying their own DNA to gain superhuman powers.”
Although pricing and other specificsÂ is not yet known, Engadget saysÂ that the developer 2K games wants a ‘premium game’ to carry a ‘premium price’,Â seemingly in the $10 to $30 range.Â Although visuals areÂ substantially behind-the-curve of modern iOS games, the game will at least support MFIÂ Game Controllers for more tactile interaction. BioShock will launch in the coming months, for iPad 4 and later, iPhone 5 and later.
