The year is 1960, while flying over the Atlantic ocean, average citizen Jack blacks out and awakens to discover that he is the sole survivor of a plane crash. Amidst the wreckage of his plane Jack spots and swims to a lighthouse and boards a Bathysphere that takes him deep within the ocean and into Rapture. Originally conceived as a utopia where a man would be entitled to all that he made without the interference of "parasites" by idealistic billionaire mogul Andrew Ryan. Rapture has since decayed and festered from the infectious effects of civil war and anarchy, brought about by the very ideals it citizens and it's leader embrace.

The Xbox 360 version of BioShock became backwards compatible for Xbox One on December 13th, 2016. Despite this just being the Xbox 360 version of the game running on Xbox One hardware, BioShock sees a massive performance boost. BioShock features an option to unlock its frame rate. When this option is engaged on Xbox One it causes the game to mostly run at 60 frames per second with only some momentary drops. When the frame rate is capped to 30 fames per second on Xbox One, BioShock never drops a frame. When running on its native Xbox 360 hardware, BioShock would still experience some frame drops when the frame rate was capped. When the frame rate was unlocked on Xbox 360 the game would experience wildly inconsistent frame rates that could range from the the high 20's to the low 40's, and this was coupled with non stop screen tearing (something that the Xbox One remedies since it enforces v-sync). The BioShock games were some of the first announced to be coming to the backwards compatibility program. It took nearly a year for them to finally come to the program, and in that meantime a BioShock remaster collection was released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. See more
