Train2Game News Last BioShock Infinite DLC available today

bioshock_infinite_episode_two_burial_at_sea-wide2K and Irrational Games announced today that BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode Two is downloadable starting today.

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode Two, developed from the ground up by Irrational Games, is the final content pack for the award-winning BioShock Infinite, and features Elizabeth in a film noir-style story that provides players with a different perspective on the BioShock universe.

“I think the work the team did on this final chapter speaks for itself,” said Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games. “We built something that is larger in scope and length, and at the same time put the player in Elizabeth’s shoes. This required overhauling the experience to make the player see the world and approach problems as Elizabeth would: leveraging stealth, mechanical insight, new weapons and tactics. The inclusion of a separate 1998 Mode demands the player complete the experience without any lethal action. BioShock fans are going to plotz.”

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode Two can be purchased as part of the BioShock Infinite Season Pass, which is priced at $19.99. The Season Pass, which is available for purchase via online marketplaces on all available platforms, contains over $35 of playable content in three add-on packs for $19.99, including both Burial at Sea episodes, the previously released Clash in the Clouds add-on pack, as well as the Early Bird Special Pack that has powerful weapon upgrades, exclusive gold weapon skins and infusion bottles to upgrade player abilities. BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 2 can also be purchased separately for $14.99.

Train2Game News: BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode 1 Review

BioShock Infinite Burial at Sea2K and Irrational games have recently released their first bit of story DLC for one of the biggest games of the year, BioShock Infinite, and I got to review it.

I am going to start off by saying their will be some spoilers for the main game here. Do not read on if you haven’t finished BioShock Infinite’s main story.

The DLC, Burial at Sea Episode 1, puts up back in the role of Booker DeWitt with Elizabeth as your companion. However this time you are in the underwater city of Rapture before it’s demise. The entire DLC was created using the same engine that created Columbia which gave brought Rapture up to date with the game.

This being a BioShock game the atmosphere and look of Rapture was breath taking. Every building and every view was a pleasure to look at. The underwater city at this time also lets you see some people and places in all their glory before the events of the first game.

The combat has been changed slightly in this DLC as you are once again battling splicers as oppose to the human forces you fight in the main story of Infinite. The focus is more on stealth this time, sneaking up behind enemies or setting traps with your plasmids.

In addition there is also the return of the weapon and plasmid wheel which made choosing which allowed you to take all the weapons you find. There is also a new plasmid for you to try which I personally quite enjoyed.

The story of this DLC is a good follow up to the main campaign and after the end of Infinite it is good to see some continuation of the idea. Much like the end of Infinite the ending of this story leaves you thinking for a while after finishing.

The biggest downfall for Burial at Sea: Episode 1 was that it was far too short. I am not one to race through games, I like exploring and searching as much as I can and still it took me just under three hours to complete.

I understand it is Episode 1 but just as I was really getting in to the game, it ended much to my disappointment. I can only hope that Episode 2 stays at this standard but just goes on longer.

Train2Game News: BioShock Infinite DLC release date

BioShock Infinite Burial at Sea2K and Irrational Games announced that BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1, the second add-on content pack for the award-winning BioShock Infinite, will be available for download worldwide starting November 12.

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1, developed by Irrational Games, the studio behind the original BioShock and BioShock Infinite, features Rapture as you’ve never seen it before – a shining jewel at the bottom of the ocean, built almost entirely from scratch in the BioShock Infinite game engine. Join Booker and Elizabeth in a film noir-style story that places them in a shining, pristine Rapture on the eve of its fall from grace. Explore the underwater city, try your hand at a grift or two, and even encounter some old “friends” from the original BioShock.

The combat experience has been rebalanced and reworked with a greater emphasis on stealth and resource management that merges the best parts of BioShock and BioShock Infinite. It includes a new weapon, an old favorite weapon from the original BioShock, the return of the weapon wheel, a new Plasmid, new Gear, and Tears.

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1 will be available via online marketplaces on all participating platforms starting November 12, and can be purchased separately for $14.99, or as part of the BioShock Infinite Season Pass. The Season Pass, which is currently available for purchase, contains $35 of playable content for $19.99, including both Burial at Sea episodes, the previously released Clash in the Clouds add-on pack, as well as the Early Bird Special Pack that has powerful weapon upgrades, exclusive gold weapon skins, and infusion bottles to upgrade player abilities.

“This is a love letter to the fans, but it’s also the beginning of a story that will give gamers a new perspective on the BioShock universe,” said Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games. “With Burial at Sea, we built a Rapture not from BioShock and BioShock Infinite scraps and pieces, but with environments almost entirely crafted from scratch.”

Still in development at Irrational Games, and also included in the Season Pass, is BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 2, which brings gamers something they have been asking for since they first met the character of Elizabeth: the chance to see the world through her eyes and face challenges as she would. In this second episode of Burial at Sea, players will experience a new storyline, and a new stealth-oriented gameplay experience.
