10 Years ago today, it started with a plane crash in the North Atlantic Ocean. A lighthouse. A man. A city under the sea.
In the decade since that first bathysphere ride 18 fathoms under the sea, your support has blown us away. From the stories you’ve shared to the fan art you’ve created to the insanely creative, intricate and detailed cosplay projects you concocted – your passion humbles us even now. For that alone, we owe the whole BioShock community our thanks.
So, as we celebrate 10 years of BioShock games, we want you to be a part of it. We’re kicking this off with a special BioShock 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition for the fans, featuring a new iconic Big Daddy and Little Sister statue, and are hosting a 10-year anniversary party at PAX West where everyone is invited. From there, we’ll continue to celebrate throughout the year with you.
Here’s a quick rundown of what you can look forward to in the near future and a teaser of what’s to come.
