Today marks the 15th anniversary of the original BioShock in North America.
The first-person shooter, developed by 2K Boston, followed an amnesiac protagonist named Jack who was the lone survivor of a plane crash at sea.
Surfacing near a mysterious lighthouse, Jack uses a nearby bathysphere to delve beneath the ocean waves to the large, underwater city of Rapture, but what was once thought to be a utopia for the social elite has long since fallen into ruin, with plasmid-enhanced humans and terrifying Big Daddies stalking its flooded hallways.
BioShock received excellent reviews from publications like Eurogamer and IGN back when it was first released. And since then, it has gone on to spawn two sequels, BioShock 2 (2010) and BioShock Infinite (2013), as well as an upcoming game, which was announced in 2019. The first of these sequels, BioShock 2 revisits Rapture following the events of the first game, while BioShock Infinite mostly takes place in a floating city named Columbia in the year 1912.
