If you haven’t played the BioShock games, I won’t spoil it for you here, but just know that despite one being high above the clouds and one being deep beneath the sea, the worlds of Rapture and Columbia, from BioShock and BioShock Infinite respectively, are more connected than you might think. A brand new dynamic BioShock Collection PS4 theme combines the worlds above and below for a stunning homage to the series, as 2017 is the tenth anniversary of the original game releasing.
PlayStation tweeted out a brief video highlighting the shift between the two dystopian cities in this new theme that just released today.

BioShock has always been a much beloved game. In our review of Bioshock Infinite review, we said:
While Bioshock Infinite is riding on the coattails of the wonderful BioShock, it never feels like a rehashed or reskinned version of an old success. Bioshock Infinite can comfortably stand alone on its city in the sky. There are no iconic sub-characters/enemies such as the Big Daddies or Little Sisters, but the game takes a much sharper focus on the main characters’ personalities, development and emotional ties, rather than using a silent character and having the story be in the world and environment. This plays out extremely well and gives us one of the best game finales this generation, if not of all time. People will be talking about this one for a long time to come.
BioShock Infinite is a game that has received a lot of hype. With our review publishing after the majority of other reviews had already given it a perfect score, I went into the game looking for the negatives. I wanted to find something wrong, some annoyance, or anything to not buy into the hype. Truth be told, the negatives are not to be found, or if they are, they are so minor that they do not at all mar the finish of the rest of the game. BioShock Infinite is honestly as near perfect as a game can get and should not be missed.
