Over the weekend, 2K revealed the PC system requirements for BioShock: The Collection on Steam. You can see it all in full at the bottom of the article. Additionally, 2K also detailed the upgrade instructions for players who have already bought the Games for Windows Live of the first two games.

If you own BioShock and/or BioShock 2 on Steam, then, good news, you’ll receive the remastered versions upon their release. However, things get a little more complicated for those with Games for Windows Live copies. For the original BioShock, you’ll need to submit a ticket to 2K Support with a scan of the original receipt, a confirmation email, or some other way to prove your purchase. So we hope you still have that lying around somewhere.

Getting the remastered version of BioShock 2, however, is so much simpler: just enter your Games for Windows Live key into Steam, and the game will be added to your library. Easy Peasy!

BioShock Infinite is not included in the remasters on PC “because it already meets current-gen console standards and runs smoothly on high visual settings.”

Chief Operating Officer

I have worked hard to become the COO here at GAW and I love it. I write and stream here and I couldn't be happier. I once had a show that I produced, wrote, and co-hosted called the Wide World of Games. I also co-host a podcast called Party Up! I'm an Action-Adventurer, platformer, RPGer, and FPS kind of gamer. Quick to play any game that has magic, swordplay, and/or stealthy elements. If you can customize a character I'm in it for the long haul. Or just give me your 2D platform and I'm a happy camper. What else do you expect from a gamer with a beard and a bow tie tattoo? Seriously.
