BioShock for the PlayStation 3 has shipped to retail outlets in North America and should be in stores today. BioShock first released for the Xbox 360 and PC in 2007, earning many game of the year honors.
BioShock for the PS3 contains all-new content that augments and extends the experience with new features such as the inclusion of the Survivor difficulty mode, Trophy support and all-new Add-On Game Content that will be available for download shortly after launch.
There’s also a free demo on the PlayStation Network right now, if you’d like to play through the first portion of Rapture, the in-game world of BioShock.
Here’s a quick game summary, courtesy of 2K Games: BioShock is a narrative-driven action experience that allows players to do the impossible as they journey through an amazing, immersive and terrifying world. Caught between powerful forces and hunted down by genetically mutated citizens, the player will come to grips with the mysterious and fascinating world of Rapture, a distinct Art Deco underwater utopia gone mad. BioShock not only challenges players’ capacity to adapt and survive, but brings to question their values and relationships with the inhabitants of Rapture. With smart and adaptive AI, no encounter ever plays out the same way twice, while numerous customization options provide gamers with an experience that adapts to their playing style.
