  • Bioshock Infinite, alongside:

Moreover, those that own BioshockBioshock 2, and the Bioshock 2 add-on Minerva’s Den on Steam will will receive the upgraded versions of the titles for free. 2K added that BioShock Infinite will not be included in the offer as the game “already meets current-gen console standards and runs smoothly on high visual settings.”now in time for the remastered editions this fall.
