Better mouse smoothing, improved FOV slider and more are heading to Bioshock remasters

BioShock Remaster patch

It’s nice to revisit Rapture’s submerged dystopia again but, as you’d expect, there are a few issues with living underwater, besides the diving suit-clad dudes with drill arms who want to murder you.

If you’ve ever tried to throw a punch while in a swimming pool you’ll know what I mean – it’s really rather difficult to build any speed or power. Bioshock’s mouse smoothing perfectly captures that feeling, making every drag of the cursor feel like you’re moving through Marmite.

Luckily, there are fixes coming for that and a whole host of other issues, making our life beneath the waves truly immersive once more.

“Since the launch of Bioshock and Bioshock 2 Remastered, some players have been reporting stability issues, while others have asked for additional feature support,” the developers said in an update on Steam.

“We hear you and we’re happy to report we’re addressing this feedback soon. Whether it’s your first time in Rapture, or you’re revisiting it again, we want your experience with the Bioshock remasters to be as enjoyable as possible.”

Here’s what they’re planning to fix:

  • General Mouse Fixes, including better Mouse Smoothing, Sensitivity and Acceleration Options in Bioshock;
  • Additional Speaker Mode Options in Audio Settings in Bioshock;
  • Improved FoV Slider Options in Bioshock, Bioshock 2 and Minerva’s Den;
  • Support for 21:9 display ratios in Bioshock, Bioshock 2 and Minerva’s Den;
  • General stability improvement to reduce instances of game crashes.
