Rapture is going mobile — publisher 2K Games has revealed that the 2007 atmospheric shooter BioShock is coming to iOS devices. According to Polygon, the iOS version will be a full port of the original, and will feature Bluetooth controller support, which makes the game feel surprisingly close to the PC and console original. The touch controls, meanwhile, "slightly frustrated the experience" according to Polygon's Brian Crecente.

The port is being developed by 2K China, the same team that successfully brought the sci-fi strategy game XCOM: Enemy Unknown to iOS. There's no word on a price, though 2K previously released XCOM for $19.99 on iOS, making it one of the more expensive mobile games. BioShock is expected to launch on iPhone and iPad sometime later this summer.
