I’m not going to make a “would you kindly” joke. I won’t. I’m better than that. Plus, you don’t have to be brainwashed to know how good a deal it is to get all three. Bioshock PC games for absolutely nothing via the latest Epic Games Store giveaway.

Starting today you can grab, download and install Bioshock: the collection on PC through the Epic Games Store. This bundle includes remastered and retouched versions of Bioshock, Bioshock 2and Bioshock Infinite. The collection also includes all single-player DLC packs and expansions released for the games, including the beloved Bioshock 2 DLCs, Lair of Minerva.

As with past freebies from Epic, it’s yours forever once you’ve created an account and used the game. And as usual, this offer is only for the PC versions.

Don’t wait too long to get the Bioshock-Collection for zero dollars and zero cents, as the deal expires on June 2. After that, Epic will move on to its next freebie. Last week it was Borderlands 3.

Bioshock and Bioshock 2 are immersive sims, or so I and many others think. Some don’t think the games are as deep or mechanically interesting as older imsim hits like System shockor more recent genre entries like Prey. Regardless, in Bioshock and its sequel, you explore a spooky and (mostly) abandoned underwater city, Rapture. It was once a utopia, but greed, superpowers and the rich have ruined it all. Typical. Throughout the games, you upgrade your powers and weapons, helping you take on all manner of villainous splicers, the remaining mortal residents of the failed underwater utopia.

Bioshock Infinite is a bit different. It’s a more direct shooter, though it features some of the same powers and mechanics as the first two games. In Infinite you play as Booker, a man sent to rescue a young woman who is locked in a tower inside a giant floating city run by a madman. If you’re playing the game for the very first time, in 2022, be prepared for some very direct and not particularly sophisticated political allegories. But if you can get past some of those things, you’ll find a fun, action-packed, beautifully crafted shooter with a trippy ending and great DLC.

All three games are worth playing, especially if you can get them for free, which we’ve established. Just head over to the Epic Games Store and grab them before June 2. And who knows, maybe one day the next Bioshock the game will be released. It might be better than Infinite. We can hope!
