Get BioShock: The Collection for Free

BioShock: The Collection is now available on the Epic Games Store, offering all three installments in the ambitious first-person shooter series. Even better, this turns out to be this week's giveaway, which was teased last week as "mystery game." So you have a week to make the collection a permanent addition to your library for free. Come next Thursday the offer will refresh, and the chance to pick up another intriguing "mystery game" will arrive. The Collection comes with a warning: "For Windows 10 operating systems and above, requires download and installation of the 2K Launcher to play." Here's more on the chance to live undersea or in the clouds in this free bundle of BioShock Remastered, BioShock 2 Remastered, and BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition:
There's always a lighthouse. There's always a man. There's always a city.
Experience the unforgettable worlds and monumental stories of the award-winning BioShock series with BioShock: The Collection. Journey to the cities of Rapture and Columbia across BioShock Remastered, BioShock 2 Remastered, and BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition, including all single-player add-on content. Fight for your life and outsmart your enemies, be it deep beneath the waves or high above the clouds.

Includes:

  • BioShock Remastered: Explore the undersea city of Rapture, a haven for society's greatest minds that has devolved into a dystopian nightmare wrought by one man's hubris.
  • BioShock 2 Remastered: See Rapture through the eyes of Subject Delta, a fearsome Big Daddy prototype on a life-or-death mission to rescue his missing Little Sister.
  • BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition: Indebted to the wrong people, private investigator Booker DeWitt must take on an impossible task: travel to a flying city above the clouds, and rescue a woman named Elizabeth.

I grabbed this because I haven't played any of the Bioshocks in years. It downloads a 2k Launcher which is probably the worst launcher I've ever seen.

I thank Steam and Gabe for all of that.
And I thank Epic for free games, and alternative and competitor to Steam, and most of all for the Unreal engine and Epic's support (even financial support) for developers trying to make their dreams come real with the Unreal engine.
It is great that those people are around to make the dreams of us gamers become reality.
So pleasantly surprised El Pit.
I've gotten used to read mostly complaints and grumbles instead of appreciation for our loved addiction dealers hobby providers, thanks
My hope for EGS has always been that it would be successful in providing an alternative to Steam, so that both services would have to up their game and make their clients and stores progressively better. Not just for gamers, but also for publishers and developers.

Either store "winning" would be bad for gamers in comparison.

Timmy putting in work I'll give him that, unlike Gabe who... what is Gabe doing again?

As mentioned the Deck is a *huge* accomplishment and a promise of more relevance/penetration for PC games.
And the Deck comes with the Firefox browser pre-installed which I love, supporting it as it's failing against the MS Edge (ugh).
And you can play EGS, GOG, etc games, plus thousands of emulated games *cough*.

Also Gabe support of VR, the Index, but specially Proton, a failsafe against a Microsoft Windows walled garden a la Apple.

And I know it's immaterial to first world people but Gabe's Steam is the *only* store that decreases prices based on countries' economic situation.
This has made an immeasurable dent in piracy in third world countries and brought sales to studios.

My own case, I bought or downladed only pirated games for decades while no valid reasonable alternative existed in my country.
But haven't played a pirated game since Steam arrived here, lifting a weight from my conscience.
Also bought most of the games I had played even if I won't play them again.

A title is too costly ?, I'll wait patientely for a Steam sale, much more cheap here than any other offerings.

Thanks Gabe, your magnificient mind made the difference.

Anyone having trouble with the download?
I've been in the queue for hours now.
The entire time I've used Steam (and, to a lesser extent GOG), I've never seen a download queue. If that's legit, Epic is doing something wrong.

Try downloading from Steam or GOG and see if you experience a queue. It could indicate an issue on your side.

Ahh that's right! How could I forget about the hardware and platform features. I almost let the free games distract me for a second. Laugh2

Any way to downgrade to the non-remastered editions without buying physical (or other sources)? There were some undesireable changes which were highly criticized and never addressed with the remasters.
On Steam you get a copy of the original when you purchase the remastered.
Same with the GoG version...Well, it was that way a few years ago when I bought the first Bioshock.

I don't have 2 and Infinite. tyvm Epic.

I believe there was something on nexusmods that took care of a few of the changes.

Another wonder thursday, near a best day of the week now.

Yep, mostly have anything the EGS throws (3110 games on Steam), but feel joy and gratefulness for hundreds of thousands of poor gamers and their weekly gift.

Despite those who see their personal situation as the only reality, the EGS makes a gigantic promoting of PC gaming to both well off curious newcomers, and above all, needy people the world over.

Plus funding those worthy devs for new games.

Cheers.

I wish the multiplayer servers was still up for Bioshock 2 deathmatch. It was stupid fun back in the day.
