BioShock celebrates 10 year anniversary with the BioShock 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition

2K Games is celebrating 10 years of BioShock in the biggest way possible, with new events and a boxset coming out dedicated to the franchise’s decade long run according to a blog post from 2K’s official blog.

Here is the description of what exactly 2K will be planning for this year:

“10 Years ago today, it started with a plane crash in the North Atlantic Ocean. A lighthouse. A man. A city under the sea.

In the decade since that first bathysphere ride 18 fathoms under the sea, your support has blown us away. From the stories you’ve shared to the fan art you’ve created to the insanely creative, intricate and detailed cosplay projects you concocted – your passion humbles us even now. For that alone, we owe the whole BioShock community our thanks.

So, as we celebrate 10 years of BioShock games, we want you to be a part of it. We’re kicking this off with a special BioShock 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition for the fans, featuring a new iconic Big Daddy and Little Sister statue, and are hosting a 10-year anniversary party at PAX West where everyone is invited. From there, we’ll continue to celebrate throughout the year with you.”

The boxset, the BioShock 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition, will cost $199.99 and is available only at GameStop and the 2K Store. It features a Big Daddy and Little Sister statue and BioShock: The Collection, which has all three main games on it and DLC.

The statue will also be able to light up and the drill on the Big Daddy’s hand is motorized, and has snippets of dialogue from the game built in. This is probably why the collection seems more on the expensive side.

Also, all of the BioShock games will be going on sale, so if you’re interested pick up your copy of all three games while you can. In Steam, BioShock will have a 67 percent discount (from $19.99 to $6.59), BioShock 2 will also have a 67 percent discount (from $19.99 to $6.59) and BioShock Infinite will have a 75 percent discount (from $29.99 to $7.49).

The first BioShock game, BioShock, was released on August 21, 2007. On Metacritic, the game has a score of 96 for Xbox 360, a score of 96 for PC and a score of 94 for PlayStation 3.

One review from IGN gave BioShock a score of 97 for Xbox 360.

“There is art here, despite what many would say isn’t possible with games, from Roger Ebert to game designers like Hideo Kojima…BioShock stands as a monolithic example of the convergence of entertaining gameplay and an irresistibly sinister, engrossing storyline that encompasses a host of multifaceted characters. This is an essential gaming experience,” it says in IGN’s review of BioShock. The full review can be found here.

The second BioShock game, BioShock 2, was released on February 9, 2010. On Metacritic, the game has a score of 88 for Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3.

One review from GamesNation gave BioShock 2 a score of 85 for Xbox 360.

“More than a new chapter, Bioshock 2 appears rather like an expansion to the first iteration. In spite of its vibrant settings and an impeccable control system, you get the feeling of déjà-vu from the first minute you are back in Rapture. So why did we give it a high score? Well, we still love Rapture after all,” it says in GamesNation’s review of BioShock 2. The full review can be found here.

The third BioShock game, BioShock Infinite, was released on March 26, 2013. On Metacritic, the game received a score of 93 for Xbox 360 and a score of 94 for both PC and PlayStation 3.

One review from Gaming Age gave BioShock Infinite a score of 91 for Xbox 360.

“It’s a well-crafted experience that’s certainly more than the sum of its parts, even if those parts are by and large pretty damn good. It’s a satisfying and intriguing experience from top to bottom, and something that’s well worth checking out,” it says in Gaming Age’s review of BioShock Infinite. The full review can be found here.

Congratulations BioShock for hitting a full 10 years as a franchise! Now, when will we be able to return to Rapture…
