BioShock was released back in 2007 and earned critical acclaim for its intense gameplay, engaging story and characters, and dystopian underwater setting in the fictional city of Rapture. The game spawned several successful sequels and is considered to be a must-play game from the PS3/Xbox 360 era.
After more than ten years, you would think that all of Rapture’s secrets would’ve been uncovered. It seems there was at least one mystery was waiting to be discovered all these years, however. The revelation comes by way of Twitter user Nick Monroe and an unnamed 4chan user who had claimed to work on a port for the original Bioshock.
Naturally other people were skeptical, but the user backed up his claims with evidence. He wrote, “In BioShock 1, go to the second half of Hephaestus where you first encounter Ryan in person. Use Incinerate to get you down to 1 HP, then use it again on the area where the cutscene triggers and walk into it. You’ll die right when the scene starts, but wind up in a Vita Chamber outside the map. Turn on Art Captions and you’ll see a developer message about Paul Hellquist not doing his job. No one has found this bug yet publicly, it’s in all versions. Cheers.”
As you can see from the above picture, the Easter Egg is indeed real. It makes us wonder how many other Easter Eggs are out there just waiting to be found.
