‘BIOSHOCK INFINITE DLC’ will return you to RAPTURE. Play as Booker AND Elizabeth.
I can’t tell if this is the greatest thing ever, or fanboy fan service of the inexcusable kind. The war between the tingling parts of my mind, and the “there something just not right” parts are throwing atomic elbows at one another as I type this.
Who am I kidding.
I’m fucking stoked.
BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea will take players in a bathysphere back to the emerald city of Rapture for a noir-styled adventure. The second and third pieces of downloadable content (DL-Sea) for Infinite are a far more narrative experience than today’s Clash in the Clouds.
The first episode places Infinite protagonists Booker and Elizabeth in Rapture, the underwater city Andrew Ryan built so kindly in the original BioShock, around 1958, two year before the fall. Players will get to experience the city in a time before it became the leaky dream under the sea, with new weapons, new “Plasmids/Vigors,” tears, Big Daddies and… apparently some sky-lines.
The second episode will have players taking on the role of Elizabeth. She won’t be the bullet-absorbing tank that Booker DeWitt is, as Irrational Studios head Ken Levine explained it’ll be a different type of experience. The two packs have been priced at $14.99 apiece (included in the BioShock Infinite Season Pass) with more details and a release date coming soon.
