Feral Interactive, a publisher known for its library of games that can be found on Mac OS, Linux, and iOS, announced today that in celebration of the BioShock 10th anniversary, the game’s remastered version, which released in BioShock: The Collection back in 2016, will be seeing a release to Mac.
BioShock tells the dark tale of an alternative 1960 reality where the ideals of an underwater utopia known as Rapture go horribly awry. The main character must undergo transformations as severe as rewriting his genetic code in order to combat the citizens of Rapture who have utterly lost their minds, and to understand the terrible truth that lies at the city’s deepest corners.
BioShock Remastered will be available as a full game on the Feral Interactive store, Steam, and the App Store when it releases later this year. If it is any indication of when we might see the release, the original BioShock, developed by 2K Boston, released for PC and Xbox 360 on August 21, 2007. Also of note, Feral Interactive was responsible for the original game’s port to OS X back in 2009.
Not so long ago, director Gore Verbinski spoke out about his involvement in a BioShock film that never was, specifically noting how a push for a R rating ultimately halted production only eight weeks away from filming.
