Bioshock Collection May Be Coming to PS4 and Xbox One this Winter

Published

 on

South African online retailer Raru let slip an alleged remaster of the BioShock Collection this weekend for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, supposedly set for November 27th 2015.

2k Games have not announced anything on the subject as of yet, but with this new development you can expect something to surface pretty soon. Last-gen’s titles such as BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock: Infinite are likely to make a return onto the current gen consoles.

This won’t be the first time that 2k have released ports this year. Both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel saw some love from the developers after being remastered for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, so there is hope for BioShock!

2k refused to respond to any rumors or speculation when questioned about Raru’s listing earlier this morning by ‘VideoGamer.com’.

The listing has since been removed but can still be found saved in Google Cache.

Sci-Fi Adventure Tether Back in Development, Demo Released

Published

Tether

Freesphere Entertainment has announced that Tether is back in active development, almost a year after it was put on hold.

Alongside the announcement, the team has finally released the prototype version of the previous incarnation of the project for free on itch.io. According to the announcement, the decision to release the demo came because “it seemed silly to have years of hard work sat there for people who worked on it to not get any recognition.”

The post also suggests that Freesphere has gone back to the drawing board for the project, saying that it is seeking to reduce the scope of the story and hinting at a “new direction.”

The demo is a long time coming, as creative director Mark Gregory first told OnlySP late last year that it would be made available as part of a larger interview discussing some of the problems and struggles faced by the team members, which included underfunding, a lack of publisher interest, and personal burnout.

For anyone unfamiliar with Tether, the sci-fi adventure promises to tell the story of a mother trapped aboard a space station while on a mission to prevent environmental collapse. While the premise raises echoes of the ‘walking simulator’ format, the game was quite ambitious, featuring time manipulation mechanics, a reactive AI enemy similar to Alien: Isolation‘s xenomorph, and immersive sim elements. How much of that will be retained in the new version remains to be seen.

OnlySP’s Amy Davidson has already pledged to trial the demo as a future entry in the Friday Freebies Club, which this week will examine \SPEK.TAKL\, so watch out for that.
