As you may or may have not heard about it, Bioshock trilogy is getting remastered including all add-ons, expansions and DLC’s and it will arrive in early September 2016.
Only game out of three that won’t be remastered is Bioshock Infinite because developers believe it already meets today’s standards of quality expected from modern games on modern gaming systems. This means proper wide screen support, 1080p and 60fps. I hope They’ll also include FOV fixes because that crap was stupid even for Bioshock Infinite. I had to hack it to get higher FOV. So, there’s that…
One important fact though for PC gamers, if you have Bioshock 1, Bioshock 2 with Minerva’s Den DLC and Bioshock Infinite listed in your Steam library, you’ll be eligible for free remastered update that will otherwise cost around 60€ as a standalone package on release day.
What this means is, if you have retail copy of Bioshock 2 you can add it to Steam library (just enter the CD KEY into Steam). Bioshock 1 can’t be added and you probably already have Infinite on Steam since I think it was only released there anyway or at least most bought it there. You can grab Bioshock 1 cheap on Steam till 4th July 2016 during summer sales. So, you can greatly reduce the total cost if you act fast! If you don’t own any of them, you can buy all 3 for around 15€ which is still very cheap. Again, just till 4th July 2016 during Summer Steam sale!
I’ve already prepared all 3 games on my Steam account and I’ll just give away the retail one to my younger cousin. I guess it’s time to introduce him to a world of a bit more complex games 🙂

I’ve been wanting to replay (and finish) Bioshock 1 for so long but didn’t want to put up with GFWL. Thanks for the info.
In fact I’ve read somewhere that Steam versions of Bioshock got GFWL removed entirely. No more of that annoying garbage even before they get remastered! I’ve just read that while researching which Bioshock games can be activated on Steam, haven’t actuality tested them to see if it’s true.
I remember reading something like that too but only for one of them; I think it was Bioshock 2. Couldn’t find any info anywhere when I was searching all those years ago about Bioshock 1 other than others asking the same question and no one answering.
