BioShock Coming to iOS

Andrew Ryan’s Underwater Utopia is coming to the iPad and iPhone. According to a story from PocketGamer, 2K Games will be releasing a port of the 2007 first-person shooter on the Apple Store this Summer. The game will be a direct-port, with minimal graphical reductions and no in-app purchases whatsoever.

“We had to make some minor changes to the graphical features due to limitations of the hardware,” says senior producer Brian Lowe about the game, “such as removing dynamic shadows, or changing the way fog is displayed.”

Everything else you loved about BioShock will stay the same, from the story to the gameplay will remain the same though the heads-up-display will obviously be reworked to incorporate touch controls. The game will require an iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPhone 5, 5C or 5S. The game will not support any version of the iPod Touch. 2K Games has stated that they have no current plans to bring the game to Android devices.

BioShock was originally released in 2007 for the PC and Xbox 360 and then later for the PS3. It saw two sequels, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite.
