Back in June of 2012 I informed you all that there was talk about an Ultimate Rapture Edition in which both Bioshock and Bioshock 2 would be released together. Well, now it’s more than talk, it’s happening, and soon. The Bioshock: Ultimate Rapture Edition is due out on January 14 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The bundle includes Bioshock and Bioshock 2 as well as various other goodies such as:

  • Plasmids Pack: Includes four additional Plasmids and Gene Tonics – Sonic Boom, EVE Saver, Vending Expert and Machine Buster – for use in BioShock.
  • Challenge Rooms Pack: Previously exclusive to PS3 and now available for Xbox 360 for the first time, the pack tests the player’s mettle by requiring them to utilize the skills learned while traversing the halls of Rapture to survive three separate puzzle rooms in BioShock.
  • Sinclair Solutions Tester: Contains a number of customization features that allow players to further their character’s development in BioShock 2 multiplayer modes and provides a deeper multiplayer experience.
  • Rapture Metro: Includes six additional multiplayer maps, an additional multiplayer gameplay mode and a rank increase to level 50 for BioShock 2 multiplayer.
  • The Protector Trials: Features frantic combat and fast-paced action designed to push players’ mastery of weapons and Plasmids in a BioShock 2 single-player experience spread across six maps.
  • Minerva’s Den: A substantial narrative experience that puts players in the role Subject Sigma and introduces new characters, locations and mystery to the world of Rapture in BioShock 2. Set in a new environment, Rapture Central Computing, Minerva’s Den adds a gripping new storyline to extend the BioShock 2 experience.
  • Museum of Orphaned Concepts: An in-game museum that shows off concept and character art.
  • Bioshock Infinite Sticker Pack

Looks nice, right? The best part is that you get all of that for the low price of $29.99. So if you have yet to play these amazing games or just want to catch up before playing Bioshock Infinite, you’d better get your hands on this amazing deal brought to you by 2K Games.
