As usual, Epic Games has once again put more free games on its platform, and this time it is the turn of BioShock: The Collection, which, as its name suggests, is a collection of games from the legendary BioShock saga that includes BioShock Remastered, BioShock 2 Remastered, and BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition. We tell you below how to get free these games and what PC you need to be able to run them properly.
BioShock: The Collection was originally released in 2016, but the games are actually quite a few years old. The first title was released in 2007, while its sequel was released in 2010. Later, in 2013, the third part was released under the name BioShock Infiniteand it was not until 2016 that 2K Games released a remastered version of the first and second installments as this collection that you can get today for free.
How to get BioShock: The Collection for free
As usual, you will need to be registered with Epic Games and access the Epic Store. If you already have its Launcher installed, you only have to access the store and you will see that it appears in the free games section, but if you don’t have it, you can also access it on the web at this link.
To add these games permanently to your digital library on the platform, you just have to go through the purchase process as you would normally do with any game, but the difference is that you will have a 100% discount automatically and you will literally pay 0 Euros, so it will be completely free.
Once the “purchase” is complete, BioShock: The Collection will appear in your game library and you will be able to install and play it. Of course, it will not appear as «BioShock: The Collection» but in your library the three games will appear individually, allowing you to choose which you want to install on your computer and which you do not.
What PC will you need to play?
As we mentioned before, even the remastered versions of these games are already six years old, so you don’t really need an overly powerful PC to play them to the fullest.
For the minimum and recommended requirements, we are going to take the most demanding of them, which is BioShock Infinite, released as we mentioned before in 2013. The Developer says that we will need an operating system Windows 7 64-bit to play, and among the recommended requirements (which are nothing more than to play fully at 1080p and 60 FPS) requires a quad-core processor (they do not give examples or indicate which one), 4 GB of RAM, 30 GB of available space in disk and graphics card AMD Radeon HD 6950 or one NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560.
As you can see, you don’t need a state-of-the-art gaming PC to be able to fully enjoy this great 2K Games saga, and in fact, with a mid-range gaming PC from six years ago it will work without any problem.
On the other hand, if you are wondering if these games will work on a laptop with integrated graphics, the answer is yes, although it is true that depending on the generation of the laptop and the iGPU that it integrates, you may need to reduce the resolution or graphic settings to be able to have a good FPS rate.
