Can you believe it has only been four months since Bioshock: Infinite hit shelves? Ever since the dramatic and slightly confusing ending of the story, players have been craving more. Not only has Irrational Games been teasing a DLC for some time – not to mention selling a season pass – but our first details have finally arrived.
Two new trailers have arrived – ‘Burial at Sea‘ and ‘Clash of the Clouds‘ – each one is different in that one will be more story-focused while the other is more action-based.
First up – ‘Burial at Sea’:
This trailer reveals that players will be returning to Rapture – the setting of the very first BioShock… only not how we remember it. Set two years before the downfall of the underwater city, Booker and Elizabeth will navigate Rapture during its prime in 19958. New weapons, plasmids (or vigors for the veterans) and big daddies will be included.
The million dollar question is whether ‘Burial at Sea’ will expand on the original stort or be an additional chapter in the BioShock universe. Many questions were left unanswered at the end of Infinite’s campaign and millions more were created; how will this DLC answer them or even tie into the mystery?
While you wait, take a crack at the second DLC, ‘Clash in the Clouds’ available right now – yes, right this very moment.
Irrational’s Kevin Levine has to say about this new DLC:
“We are really excited to offer our fans the content that they have been asking for. With Clash in the Clouds, people get a pure action experience that takes BioShock Infinite combat to its highest challenge and intensity level. With the Burial at Sea episodes, we are building a Rapture-based narrative experience that is almost entirely built from scratch.”
Bioshock: Infinite – Burial at Sea has no release date as of yet, just a promised “coming soon,” but the price for each episode has been listed at $14.99 each, included in the season pass.
