Bioshock Infinite: Burial At Sea Ep. 1 DLC Release Date
Bioshock Infinite is one of those polarizing games that every gamer should experience just one. With a great storyline and a creepy retro-styled modern soundtrack (if that makes any sense), it is an extremely atmospheric game that pulls you into the amazing universe that Irrational Games created. Still, even with all of the praise and the creepy and the divisive ending, most gamers were left wanting more of … well, something.
Well, Irrational Games has stepped up to the plate and promised just that with their announcement of Bioshock Infinite: Burial At Sea Episode 1 to be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on November 12th. On each platform, the deep sea adventure will cost you an additional $14.99.
As Bioshock Infinite’s second DLC, Burial At Sea puts players back in the shoes of Booker but in someplace familiar to fans of the Bioshock franchise. That’s right, Rapture returns as the place to be and Booker explores it. Here’s a description from the Bioshock Infinite site:
Gameplay has been modified to give the player an original BioShock combat experience that merges the best parts of BioShock and BioShock Infinite: new weapons, new Plasmids/Vigors, Tears, Sky-Lines, and Big Daddies. Explore the city when it was at the height of its beauty, meet some old “friends,” and make some new ones, all through the eyes of Booker DeWitt. Why are Booker and Elizabeth in Rapture? What was the city like before everything fell to pieces? The answers to these questions and more will be found in BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1.
With Rapture completely redesigned in all of its insane and creepy glory, this return to the site of one of the most critically acclaimed games in history should make for a tremendously entertaining experience. Here’s to hoping it last longer than a few hours!
Burial At Sea Episode 1 is the second of 3 planned DLC packs for Bioshock Infinite. Clash In The Clouds was the first DLC released and is a type of Horde Mode expansion that is now available as well. Burial At Sea Episode 2 is still in development and will feature the player taking the reigns of Elizabeth herself!
