BioShock Collection Accidentally Leaked By Retailer

BioShock ios removed

An item called BioShock Collection has appeared on the website of a South African retailer. The listing was swiftly removed, but not before some savvy customers got a screenshot. The South African site, Raru, was also previously responsible for leaks of the Greninja, Jigglypuff, and Splatoon Amiibos. The BioShock Collection listing included a release date if November 27, meaning it may not be long before fans get to revisit the underwater ruins of Rapture. The listed price is 711 Rand, which is around $52 USD.

2K Games initially declined to comment on the appearance of the as-yet unannounced BioShock Collection. They later released a short, curt statement simply saying, “2K doesn’t respond to rumours or speculation.”2K Games has never made any announcements or even given any indication, that they intended to relaunch any of the BioShock games. The speed with which the listing was taken down, and the site’s history with previous leaks, lend credence to this being legit.

BioShock Collection leaked

The fate of the BioShock series has been unclear ever since its developer, Irrational Games, was shut down in early 2014. Irrational Games’ co-founder, Ken Levine, went on to start his own studio, Take-Two Interactive. “I am winding down Irrational Games as you know it,” Levine then said. He announced that Take-Two would be working on a new project, but the only details about it to emerge so far are that it will run on the Unreal Engine.

It’s not clear if this so-called BioShock Collection will include only the first two titles or will also include the most recent instalment in the series, BioShock Infinite. The first two games, in particular, are likely candidates for a remaster. The listing states that the collection will release for Xbox One and Playstation 4, but it’s likely a remaster of the original games would also get a PC release.

Disney Speedstorm, Gameloft’s free-to-play kart racer, will enter its latest season with a wintery backdrop of Arendelle. Let It Go will add Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff, and Hans as racers. As always, they’ll have unique moves and abilities.

Oaken and other musical movie crew members will be unlocked, along with a new Golden Pass. After fan feedback, the developer is rebalancing this aspect of the release so you can progress faster and unlock more rewards.

The developer also announced on Twitter that it’s lowering in-game shop prices starting today, and if you’ve paid for microtransactions, you’ll get a big payout. The French studio appears to be betting on this season’s success.

Adding non-Frozen characters Oswald, Ortensia, and WALL-E could also help. A comprehensive game update should bring back lapsed players and attract new ones. Will you challenge the kart racer?

New Destiny 2 Microtransaction Is Bad Bungie Removed It from PS5, PS4

Bungie has pulled a contentious $15 starter pack from Season of the Wish, which launched yesterday. The pack had a poor selection and was marketed to new players, which the community strongly opposed.

The starter pack proudly stated that players could “experience the power of build-defining Exotic weapons by instantly unlocking three of Destiny 2’s finest: Traveler’s Chosen, Ruinous Effigy, and Sleeper Simulant.” An exotic ship, a sparrow, a ghost shell, 125,000 glimmer, 50 enhancement cores, five enhancement prisms, and one ascendant shard are also included.

This offering may seem harmless to a new player, but Forbes’ Paul Tassi says, “You sort of have to be a Destiny 2 player to understand what an outrageously bad deal this is.” The Forsaken Pack, another Bungie release, includes two dozen Exotics, a dungeon, and a raid. It cost $20 and is now $5. It looks bad, from what we can tell.

Guardians retaliated with negative Steam reviews. They orchestrated the DLC page to include “Capitalism,” “Crime,” and “Psychological Horror” user tags, which is funny.

After Bungie pulled the pack, Redditor Grizz3d summarized the community response: “I don’t get how that starter pack was approved. What part of stealing from new players wasn’t going to result in community outrage? Bungie’s disconnect with players is shocking. I’m glad you got rid of the pack, but it’s disappointing that Bungie thought it was a good idea.”

This follows the Witcher 3 crossover armour sets, which look great but are expensive. Sony’s independent live service outpost is in danger due to a delayed expansion and studio layoffs.

Sony announced last year that it would plant trees for Horizon Forbidden West PlayStation fans who unlocked a simple trophy in the open-world game. This, in partnership with several charities, sought to protect the global environment and biodiversity.

Over a year later, it released a trailer showing its progress. The company has planted 600,000 trees worldwide, restoring 1,800 acres. More importantly, the gaming industry has planted 2.5 million trees worldwide.

Gaming is fun, but we must protect our world. Sony has taken steps to be more environmentally friendly, such as adding energy-saving features to the PS5 and shipping all its products in fully recyclable packaging.
