The 'Ultimate Rapture Edition,' set for Jan. 14 release, will cost gamers $29.99 USD and includes 'Bioshock' and 'Bioshock 2' along with a boatload of add-ons, and some that will be making their way to the Xbox 360 for the first time.

These add-ons include the Museum of Orphaned Concepts, Plasmids Pack, Challenge Rooms Pack, Sinclair Solutions Tester, Rapture Metro, The Protector Trials and Minerva's Den. The content also spreads across single player, multiplayer and even manages to provide a glimpse of some intriguing concept art along the journey.

There will also be an exclusive collectable sticker pack from Columbia, the world of 'Bioshock Infinite,' for gamers to collect.

"The BioShock: Ultimate Rapture Edition includes the critically-acclaimed BioShock, BioShock 2 and add-on content for both games valued at more than $40. It also includes a trip to the never-before-seen Museum of Orphaned Concepts, providing a rare look at early concept art and character models that never made it into BioShock," the official press release states.

Other add-ons to the bundle pack will give users access to four additional Plasmids and Gene Tonics - Sonic Boom, EVE Saver, Vending Expert and Machine Buster - for use in 'BioShock.' Xbox 360 players will be happy to know that Challenge Rooms Pack will be finally available to these players, after it was made exclusive for PlayStation 3 players.

The Challenge Rooms Pack will test the player's determination by requiring them to utilize the skills learned while navigating the halls of Rapture to survive three separate puzzle rooms in 'BioShock.'

Going down the memory lane, the first two 'BioShock' games took place in the underwater city of Rapture.

In the first game, the player took on the role of Jack, who discovers the underwater city after his plane crashes near one of the entrances. Rapture is an Objectivist utopia, built by Andrew Ryan, which descended into chaos after the residents got their hands on ADAM - a substance that offers the ability to use plasmids.

Jack had to stop Andrew Ryan and his army of splicers in order to escape the city.
