Lucas Beretto: A new Bioshock has been confirmed to be in development - here is how the atmospheric FPS horror franchise can make a great comeback.
Prequel. I would love to play the game where the society seems to be normal (for Rapture). You meet Ryan and visit familiar places and people. And then some moment in the first level or so, after you have gained a sense of the world there, everything begins its descent into madness.
One wanted that since the original. I would love to see the fall of Rapture.
There's a novel for it called Rapture. Pretty good read I recommend it!
I believe BioShock Vita was supposed to be FF Tactics where you'd see the fall of rapture.
A prequel would be great. But from job listings, it seems the game will be set in a brand new location. To me, the moon/space station would be too similar to so many other games. BioShock has always thrived on doing things that are new and surprising. Underground is definitely a possibility, though it would be challenging to make it visually stunning - something else the series is known for. I'm just glad it's not me having to decide!!
I wouldn't mind that either, although they covered a lot of that within the first couple games. Plus, who would the bad guy be? In any case, the universe set itself up to be able to go anywhere, so long as there is a light house and a man.
Maybe the player turns out to be the bad guy...maybe you do not realize who you are until some way into the game and it runs out you are Atlas.
Maybe. I suppose there us a lot of room to make a narrative, and people better at such things can come up with something if that's their intent.
Since past worlds are off the list .... A bioshock set in an subterranean utopia can be something new.
Would be neat to see Bioshock under ground a prequel would also be cool or the rise of Columbia into the sky. I can't see Bioshock on say the moon it might feel like another space shooter. Either way I just want Bioshock 4 love the franchise own it all on PS3 and PS4.
I loved the premise of Bioshock Infinite. I wish they just didn't over complicate the plot. Find the girl, help the girl, escape, that would've been fine with me.
Giant space station setting. Zero gravity segments akin to Dead Space. Future tech, with that old school, Bioshock noire charm. Would be excellent.
It'd be cool to see a fresh take on a space station. Maybe it could be run by an eccentric Musk type character.
And yes, I know, System Shock. Been a long time since that game though, and Bioshock does have an identity and gameplay of its own.
They've gone underwater and into the sky. The next game should either go underground or up into space on some luxurious space station.
I said the same; That's how it started anyways with System Shock. Space Station, or another planet/moon. Infinite had the sky, parallel dimensions and time paradoxes, like, where do you go from there?
Bioshock has the potential to be anywhere to be fair. My idea is a secret underground society underneath England similar to Columbia but you must defend or destroy it based on your choices.
As long as the gun play and elemental damage feels good I’ll be happy.
The last one was wonderful up to the point when it over-thought its staying power and commercial appeal. The expanded universe of infinite options ended up being a repetitive cliched dud. Not sure if I’m on board for another one. Had zero interest in the DLC.
The DLC for that game is the best BioShock experience available. It shows how everything in the first game happened.
Set it on a Martian dystopian city in the future with Elon Musk’s descendant as the main antagonist.
They already stated it won't be in Rapture or Colombia. Maybe it's in space?
I say an Island in the middle of nowhere which is hidden from view but only accessed when a Lighthouse reveals the way. Something like in LOST where the Island can't be reached normally. You had a city in the ocean, a city in the sky so a city on ground would be the next step. Underground near the Earths core In a volcano On the side of huge cliffs like the grand canyon In a pocket dimension Space Station A Moon base A Micro City
What about a mashup of eras, you could have sci fi weapons for the player but set in medieval times fighting against hordes of splicers in suits of armour. Could be fun and quite unique.
I loved the first two games so much i hope the franchise comes back strong. Bioshock 2 is underrated !
Go Deeper like the Mariana Trench or Bermuda Triangle or something 😬😬
I keep hearing great things about this series but never had the time to play it. Came out on the xbox360 first and PS3 much later so by that time I already had too many great PS3 games to play so never gotten into Bioshock. Is it still worth playing the old games or just skip to infinite?
I just want it to go back to the style of the first two. Infinite wasn't really Bioshock imo
