Seven games in one day
As in all media, there are absolute classics and showcases for computer and video games that fans should have gambled on – if they have an affinity for the corresponding genres. 2K Games is releasing three collections for Nintendo Switch on May 29th, which contain a total of seven game-changing games.
In an unforgettable first person shooter adventure, enriched with all kinds of mystery, horror and role-playing elements, “BioShock” kidnapped video game fans for the first time in 2007 in the underwater city of Rapture. Somewhere between art deco aesthetics, basic philosophical questions and mental decay, players come across an absolute masterpiece that is not for nothing considered one of the best shooters of all time.
If you haven’t been able to experience the whole thing yourself, you can now catch up on the experience with “BioShock: The Collection” on the Switch. In addition to a polished version of the first part, the collection also contains a revised version of “BioShock 2” and a complete version of “BioShock Infinite”, the third game in the series. In addition to the main games, the package also includes all single-player expansions that have appeared over the years. The only question is: Would you be kind enough to explore Rapture again?
After the recently released “XCOM: Chimera Squad” for PC, the long-standing strategy game series with the “XCOM 2 Collection” is finally coming to the Switch. In addition to the main game, the collection also includes four download packages and the “War of the Chosen” expansion.
Since “UFO: Enemy Unknown” (also “X-COM: UFO Defense”) first appeared in the mid-1990s, players have been facing the fight against alien threats. The goal is to prevent the annihilation of humanity in turn-based battles. In “XCOM 2” strategy fans join a guerrilla group to – hopefully successfully – repel the invaders.
“Borderlands” can also be described as pioneering, since the game has decisively shaped the sub-genre of “loot shooters”. In addition to the – let’s be honest – less important story, the main focus here is on cracking action, a lot of wacky humor and collecting new weapons.
The “Borderlands Legendary Collection” includes the collection adventures “Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition”, “Borderlands 2” and “Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel” including numerous expansions, which at best can be tackled with friends or alone can be. The package promises a total of several hundred hours of fun for fans.
