BioShock Infinite ’s first story-driven DLC is hitting the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on Nov. 12. BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea - Episode 1 will give you the opportunity to explore Rapture “on the eve of its fall from grace.” Think of it as a prequel to BioShock and BioShock 2.
It’ll be available for $14.99, or as part of the Season Pass which costs $35 and will include both Burial at Sea episodes and the already available challenge-based Clash in the Clouds add-on as well as the Early Bird Special Pack with weapon upgrades and skins.
“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.”
What makes Burial at Sea particularly interesting is that Irrational has moved away from the faster-paced combat of vanilla BioShock Infinite in favor of more stealth and resource management.
