I Would Have Played Bioshock Tactics So Hard

I think it’s fairly clear at this point that Bioshock Vita isn’t happening. Irrational’s gone and it’s been vapourware since the 2011 announcement. That’s not stopped Ken Levine tweeting about what could have been though, teasing a turn based ” Final Fantasy Tactics style” game that would “work well on the Vita”.

It certainly sounds a hell of a lot more interesting than just trying to squeeze a tiny FPS out of Sony’s machine. Here’s what Levine said:

What do you think? I’d have loved to see a different style of game set in the Bioshock universe. I’m all for a Rapture style expansion DLC in Civilisation 5. There was this lovely isometric Bioshock mock up a while back.

  • People love to talk about turn-based action, but Bioshock is principally a narrative universe. I think a true free-roam, semi-linear story would have really fleshed out the world. It would allow players to explore and unravel the world at their own pace (yay for player agency!) and at the same time allowed the creators to build in all sorts of smaller elements.
