Would you kindly direct your attention to this freebie from Steam, where you can return to Rapture and get remastered editions of Bioshock or Bioshock 2 for FREE if you own the original games!

This freebie starts on September 15 at 6:00 PM EST -- if you own Bioshock, Bioshock 2 or BioShock 2: Minerva’s Den, you'll be able to upgrade to their respective remastered editions to celebrate the launch of BioShock: The Collection!

Those who own the games on Steam will see the remastered editions appear automatically in their game library. Those who bought physical copies will have to go through some extra steps to get the remastered editions:

  • Bioshock -- provide your Steam profile information and proof of purchase of the original PC game to 2K Support
  • Bioshock 2 -- use the Games for Windows Live key that was with your game and activate this key through Steam. Click here for more information and step-by-step instructions

The remastered games include the game itself optimized for current-generation hardware and all single-player DLC. Plus, the remastered edition of Bioshock also has bonuses including the unlockable video series and a director’s commentary, making this an excellent freebie for fans of the series.

This offer is available to all owners of the original games for a limited time only. Steam is required to redeem the offer. Thanks to ReeGee for posting this offer in our Hot Deals forum!

    • I have a PC copy, but I don't want to pollute my system with Steam DRM, so not an option for me. It seems that Steam is the only option for most games these days. I have games still in the box that people have given me that I've never installed because they actually just contained keys for Steam.

    • Great for new players and ppl who only played on console. Just beat 1& 2 last year on pc so the texture bump and extra lighting is little difference. Thanks for the post though OP

      Not sure about 2 but Bioshock 1 on PC has a weird issue where the physics are locked to 30fps and you'd need a mod to fix that. This remaster should be fully 60fps without the need for mods in addition to the visual upgrade

    • Does the new version of bioshock 2 support game pad? For some reason the original never did and I enjoy playing these games from my couch.

      Bioshock 2 has supported the gamepad since 2013 - when they updated it and removed Games for Windows live.

      Time flies, the game has been sitting in my backlog for years now and I haven't used my retail key to get the steam key yet. Guess now is the best time to play it :)

      Actually? The GFWL was garbage. But I didn't know they added actual controller support. The first one had it.

    • I have the bioshock series on xbox. Too bad this isn't eligible, as I might even replay some on the PC.

    • So upset I missed chance to grab these during the last steam sale. Is this offer going to still be available if the games come on sale again?

      Probably in a few months when they think no one's interested anymore.
