Indebted to the wrong people, private investigator Booker DeWitt must take on an impossible task: travel to Columbia, a flying city above the clouds, and rescue a mysterious woman named Elizabeth. She has the power to tear at the fabric of reality—a power her captor thinks will fulfill his warped vision of the American dream.

A trio of big boys

Planning on getting 2K's latest Switch games in physical form? You better make sure you have plenty of storage space anyway, because these suckers require a bunch of extra room.

According to 2K's own store, the physical version of Borderlands: Legendary Collection requires a download of at least 42 GB, Bioshock: The Collection requires 31 GB, and XCOM 2 Collection requires 24 GB. In other words, you're definitely going to need a microSD card for these retail releases. Better make sure you grab one along with these purchases!

2K explains why Borderlands/Bioshock/XCOM are all coming to Switch on the same day, want to support Switch going forward

Big 2K support on the way

As you likely know, 2K is releasing XCOM 2 Collection, Bioshock: The Collection, and Borderlands Legendary Collection on Switch all on May 29th, 2020. How on earth did 2K decide to bring everything out on one day? Famitsu talked to 2K chief creative Sami Thessman to find out. Check out his comments below, courtesy of a NintendoEverything translation.

“Well, we’ve had a huge demand for these games on Switch for some time now, so it was actually because we felt bad that we’ve kept everyone waiting this long. In announcing and releasing all these games at the same time, we were able to pull this necessary partnership together even more effectively and really establish it. We didn’t necessarily have some kind of marketing goal or something like that in mind, but I’m sure it wasn’t just a happy coincidence either.”

A huge amount of titles for the Switch in one day, but can we expect more from 2K on the platform? While Thessman wasn't willing to give specifics, he did share encouraging words.

“I can’t tell you all about our business strategies, but what I can say is we at 2K consider our relationship with Nintendo to be extremely important. We really want to keep releasing games for Nintendo Switch moving forward.”

All titles in BioShock: The Collection and Borderlands Legendary Collection can be purchased individually from the Switch eShop

Collect the ones you want

Is there one particular game you'd like to get from either BioShock: The Collection or Borderlands Legendary Collection? Turns out you don't have to buy the collections just to get the game you want. As long as you go the eShop route, you can pick and choose whatever games you want.

The Switch eShop has individual listings for all titles included in both the BioShock: The Collection and Borderlands Legendary Collection. Unfortunately, we don't have pricing on the individual games right now. Visiting the respective eShop pages for each games gives you a "redeem download code" link, but no pricing info. I'd imagine each game will end up being priced somewhere around $15 to $20, but that's just a guess based on the $50 price for the retail collections.
