Bioshock coming to iPhone and iPad soon

Bioshock coming to iPhone and iPad soon

The classic first person shooter, Bioshock, is coming to iPhone and iPad soon, according to publisher 2K games. The company teased the release on Twitter recently, with a mysterious image saying ‘Come bite the Apple!’.

Bioshock for iOS will be compatible with iPad 4, iPad Mini 2 and iPad Air, plus iPhone 5, 5S and 5C. It’s the first major last-generation console game to be ported to iOS, and while it promises to be a faithful port, Eurogamer reports that there has been a drop in quality of some effects and textures.

Like 2K’s Grand Theft Auto, Bioshock for iOS will not feature micro-transactions, which will likely mean a relatively high price (GTA San Andreas is $6.99). As with all first person shooters on iOS, the biggest question is how good the controls will be. Even the best systems are a compromise compared to using a gamepad.

2K has yet to announce a release date for Bioshock on iOS other than ‘soon’, or confirm its price.
