BioShock Remastered on PC patched to fix problems it shouldn’t have had

2K Games has released patches for the remasters of BioShock and BioShock 2 on the PC platform. The updates arrived as part of BioShock: The Collection, though the remasters were completely free to those who already owned the games.

Fans and critics were upset to find that these remasters weren’t nearly as good as the should have been, with issues in resolution, sound, field-of-view, mouse settings and audio. 2K heard the word and set developers down to get it fixed. They announced that they were at work on the patch on September 19, and it rolled out yesterday.

Here are the notes for both games.

  • Field-Of-View is now adjustable from 75 to 130 in the Graphics Options Menu.
  • 21:9 Resolutions are now available. UI supports 2 modes (Stretch or Centered) at these resolutions.
  • Resolved several graphical issues on NVidia hardware
  • New Graphics options available for lower-end machines
  • Mouse Button 4 and 5 assignments fixed
  • Mouse Icon Size is now adjustable and will scale with resolution.
  • Several improvements have been made to Mouse Sensitivity, Threshold, and Buffering
  • Settings will no longer automatically reset on improperly shutting down BioShock
  • Speaker Mode should now be selectable from the Audio Options Menu
  • Fixed an initialization bug with Audio System.
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes
  • Field-Of-View is now adjustable from 75 to 130 in the Graphics Options Menu.
  • 21:9 Resolutions are now available. UI supports 2 modes (Stretch or Centered) at these resolutions.
  • Mouse Button 4 and 5 assignments fixed.
  • Mouse Icon Size is now adjustable and will scale with resolution.
  • Several improvements have been made to Mouse Sensitivity, Threshold, and Buffering
  • DirectX 11 Performance improvements
  • Fixed several graphical issues with Occlusion Culling.
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes

Some users are reporting that they are still experiencing game crashes. Hopefully that’ll be resolved soon.

Back to Rapture we go, my friends.

Thank you for listening to feedback and addressing the issues, 2K.
