The original BioShock ran on (a heavily modified version of) Unreal Engine. That was almost seven years ago. What would the game look like running on the newest iteration, Unreal Engine 4? Someone had that same thought and put in the effort to find an answer.
"I've been itching to play with UE4... So I decided to gather up some of the original BioShock assets and see how they'd look in a next-gen engine!" wrote creator noodlespagoodle (what a name). "Like and comment if you want to see more. I just might expand a whole level from it!"
I'd like to play BioShock again one day. Maybe it'll get re-released before then. If nothing else, watch this video as an excuse to listen to "Beyond the Sea" just one more time.
