BioShock Ultimate Rapture Edition Includes Two Games But No Infinite Demo

Before BioShock Infinite hits stores, 2K Games will re-release the first two games in the series. The BioShock Ultimate Rapture Edition is a Xbox 360 and PS3 bundle featuring BioShock, BioShock 2 and numerous extras.

The Ultimate Rapture package includes the downloadable content for each game as well. In the case of the first BioShock, this means four new plasmids and gene tonics as well as three challenge rooms. The BioShock 2 DLC adds six multiplayer maps, six standalone "Protector Trials," and the new Minerva's Den single-player campaign.

The bundle also comes with a "Museum of Orphaned Concepts." This virtual museum lets you peruse images from BioShock's development, including environment and character art. The game underwent many fundamental changes before its release - for example, it was originally supposed to take place in a World War 2 era laboratory - so the concept art should be fascinating.

A demo for BioShock Infinite would be a perfect final piece to the Ultimate Rapture Edition. Unfortunately, the only Infinite content in the bundle is an "exclusive sticker pack." Irrational recently delayed the game so it's not surprising they don't have time to make a demo. It sure would've sold a lot of copies of this compilation, though.

The Ultimate Rapture Edition will arrive in North America on January 14th and cost $29.99. The international version will arrive at an unknown, later date.
