Explore a deadly but incredible art deco world filled with formidable technology and fascinating characters
BioShock is a shooter unlike any youve ever played, loaded with weapons and tactics never seen. Youll have a complete arsenal at your disposal from simple revolvers to grenade launchers and chemical throwers, but youll also be forced to genetically modify your DNA to create an even more deadly weapon: you. Injectable plasmids give you super human powers: blast electrical currents into water to electrocute multiple enemies, or freeze them solid and obliterate them with the swing of a wrench.
You are a cast-away in Rapture, an underwater Utopia torn apart by civil war. Caught between powerful forces, and hunted down by genetically modified splicers and deadly security systems, you have to come to grips with a deadly, mysterious world filled with powerful technology and fascinating characters. No encounter ever plays out the same, and no two gamers will play the game the same way.
Biologically modify your body: send fire storming from your fingertips and unleash a swarm of killer hornets hatched from the veins in your arms.
Hack devices and systems, upgrade your weapons and craft new ammo variants.
Turn everything into a weapon: the environment, your body, fire and water, and even your worst enemies.
Explore an incredible and unique art deco world hidden deep under the ocean.
BioShock is loaded with some great, modifiable weapons to ever blast their way into a shooter. But guns alone wont be enough to defeat the devious AIs of Rapture. There are literally hundreds of other strategies players can use to take out his enemies.
