BioShock 4 may be taking notes from Half-Life 3

Quite a lot of doable BioShock 4 particulars may have been leaked. If the rumours are correct, we may now know the proposed time interval, setting, and even the town title of the brand new BioShock – and a few of these particulars would possibly sound somewhat acquainted to Half-Life 3 followers.

These rumours come from podcaster and sport journalist Colin Moriarty on the newest episode of his (*4*). Reportedly the Cloud Chamber-developed BioShock 4 is focusing on a 2022 launch, is internally codenamed “Parkside” – which has been rumoured beforehand – and “the development team has incredible latitude to get it right”, based on Moriarty.

While all that is hearsay till introduced, sources at VGC and Eurogamer assist Moriarty’s findings. The sport will supposedly happen within the Sixties – the identical time interval as the unique BioShock. It’s the setting, nonetheless, which may resonate with Half-Life 3 devotees – as BioShock 4’s model of Rapture or Columbia may be an “Antarctic city called Borealis”.


As beforehand revealed by Half-Life author Marc Laidlaw, Half-Life 3 was alleged to happen in Antarctica and noticed Gordon Freeman seeking the mysterious Aperture Sciences ship referred to as the Borealis. This was all hinted at by each Half-Life 2: Episode 2 and Portal 2, so it’ll be a quite large coincidence if BioShock 4 has the participant visiting Antarctica seeking Borealis. Perhaps, if the rumours are true, it may be a enjoyable nod to the much-yearned-for subsequent instalment within the beloved FPS sport collection that has sadly by no means materialised. Sob.

The new BioShock takes place in Sixties Antarctica.

BioShock 4 was lastly confirmed two years in the past this month, though up to now the one solid-ish element we now have in regards to the eagerly-awaited sequel is that it’ll most likely be an open-world sport – and hopefully a bit extra of an RPG too. Regardless, it’s welcome to the Borealis title, since Half-Life 3 doesn’t appear to be in any form of severe manufacturing at Valve.
