BioShock is coming to iOS reveals 2K

James Orry Updated on by

2K China is bringing Irrational Games’ 2007 underwater hit BioShock to high-end iOS devices this summer.

The premium-priced game promises to reproduce the console experience on your phone or tablet, helped somewhat by support for Mfi controllers.

Although a direct port of the original game, 2K has been required to “make some minor changes to the graphical features due to limitations of the hardware,” says senior producer Brian Lowe, “such as removing dynamic shadows, or changing the way fog is displayed”.

An art book, which can be accessed within the game app, has been added.

Owners of an iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad mini 2, iPhone 5, 5C, or 5S will be able to play the game when it launches. 2K told Pocket Gamer that it has “no immediate plans to bring BioShock to Android”.
