2K games has announced that it is bringing the original 2007 BioShock game¬†to iPhone and iPad later this summer, via Engadget. Graphics have been toned down¬†significantly from the original Xbox¬†title, but the game will no doubt offer plenty of nostalgia¬†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 specifics¬†is not yet known, Engadget says¬†that the developer 2K games wants a ‘premium game’ to carry a ‘premium price’,¬†seemingly in the $10 to $30 range.¬†Although visuals are¬†substantially behind-the-curve of modern iOS games, the game will at least support MFI¬†Game Controllers for more tactile interaction. BioShock will launch in the coming months, for iPad 4 and later, iPhone 5 and later.
