Over the last few years, 2K Games and Bethesda have become two of the biggest publishers in gaming with hits like BioShock Infinite and Borderlands 2. Now the two publishers are combining their power to offer bundles that feature their best selling games for those who never got around to them.
2K Games and Bethesda announced this morning that it will be releasing two bundles on Xbox 360 and PS3 today. The first includes Borderlands 2 and Dishonored while the second features Skyrim and BioShock Infinite. As an added bonus, the PS3 version of the Skyrim and BioShock Infinite bundle also includes the original BioShock.
Both publishers are quick to point out that these four games are often cited as being games of a generation. In other words, they feel that these are the games people will look back on as the crowing achievement in game design on the Xbox 360 and PS3. It also probably means that you've already played them.
“When you think of the best games of the modern era, you think of Skyrim, BioShock Infinite, Borderlands 2, and Dishonored,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “Combined, these four instant classics have sold tens of millions of copies worldwide, and have been recognized by hundreds of critics as the best in the industry, and now 2K and Bethesda Softworks are offering these games at an incredible value.”
If you've not yet had the chance to play these games, 2K and Bethesda really hope you do. It would seem the focus of this joint endeavor is to gain new fans while wringing out the last bit of value found in these titles.
“Not only have these games been critical successes, but they have also won the hearts of gamers everywhere,” added Vlatko Andonov, President, Bethesda Softworks. “Each of these games has an extraordinarily passionate fan base and we look forward to seeing those grow even larger as more people get to explore these fully-realized worlds.”
Both bundles are available today on the PS3 and Xbox 360 for $30 each. The bundles include only the base game so you'll have to buy all the DLC that's been released for all four titles.
