Bioshock 1 & 2 FoV opened from claustrophobic to comfortable in this week's BioShock: The Collection patch

BioShock: The Collection has been patched on PC with some welcome adjustments to the first two games.

A new BioShock: The Collection patch is available on PC via Steam, and it addresses some of the feedback PC players had regarding the spotty remaster bundle.

As promised back in September, the patch provides greater FoV options for those who found the original maximum (75) too tight, and also extends support for 21:9 resolutions.

One of the other major themes is adjustments to mouse support. See how the new settings feel to you; getting that acceleration just right can be tricky.

Although the patch notes don't make it explicit it's likely these changes extend to Minerva's Den as well as BioShock and BioShock 2, since 2K had said fixes would be rolling out for all three.

Anyway, here are the full patch notes both both games. You'll see that the first BioShock has had the most work, with graphical bug fixes, more graphics options for lower-end machines, audio fixes and an end to resetting settings.
