Remember that odd Bioshock tease recently? Well it turns out it was for an iOS port of the original Bioshock.

The port has been created by 2K China, the same team that brought XCOM: Enemy Unknown over to mobiles, and can be played with either touch screen controls or a compatible Bluetooth controller. The game isn’t an exact port and has been tinkered with slightly to ensure that it runs smoothly on mobile devices.

The game has been downscaled graphics wise with the removal of fog and dynamic shadows to ensure that it runs smoothly and fits within Apples 2GB limit. There will be no microtransactions of any kind.

Bioshock will be released this summer for a “premium” price, and is compatible with iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPad 4, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, and iPhone 5C.
