Feral Interactive today announced that BioShock Remastered, a version of the ground-breaking first-person shooter running in 1080p, will be released for macOS on August 22nd to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the game’s original release. Originally developed by Irrational Games and published by 2K for Windows and console, BioShock is set in the decaying underwater city of Rapture, a darkly imaginative and brilliantly realized gameworld.
Set in an alternative 1960, BioShock Remastered plunges players into Rapture, an individualistic utopia gone badly wrong. To survive the onslaughts of the city’s deranged inhabitants, players must rewrite their own genetic codes, and find creative ways to combine their terrifying new powers with devastating weapons. With a thought-provoking storyline, BioShock is at once beautiful, thrilling and frightening, and explores profound ideas about science, politics and human nature.
“We’re thrilled to bring an enhanced version of BioShock to macOS 10 years after its original release,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “The improved graphics make the most of the spectacular art direction, combining art deco design, science fiction themes, and a horror sensibility. There’s never been a better time to visit Rapture.”
BioShock: Remastered will be available from the Feral Store and Steam for $19.99/£13.99/€19.99 on August 22nd. The Mac App Store version of BioShock: Remastered will be released shortly afterwards costing $19.99/£19.99/€21.99. The original BioShock for macOS will continue to be available from the Mac App Store.
