2K reveals PC requirements for BioShock: The Collection

2K outlined PC requirements for BioShock: The Collection, due out on September 15 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. You can view those requirements below, or check out 2K's Steam post.

The collection bundles BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite, as well as each title's single-player DLC. (2K decided against carrying over multiplayer modes and servers, hence multiplayer modes getting left behind.)

If you own any or all of the BioShock trilogy on PC, you're in luck: your Steam copies of BioShock and BioShock 2 will automatically be upgraded to the remastered versions found in The Collection. The Xbox One and PS4 ports of BioShock Infinite were derived from the original PC version, so no changes to that version have been made. Meaning, if you already own Infinite, you own the remaster.

However, if you purchased a disc-based copy of either of the first BioShock, or if you own a Games for Windows Live version of BioShock 2, you'll have to take an extra step. To get BioShock remastered, visit 2K's support site and give them your Steam account name and original proof of purchase, such as a scan of your receipt. To get BioShock 2 remastered, just log on to Steam, choose Add a non-Steam Game to My Library from the Games menu, and enter your GFWL key.
