The second part of the Burial at Sea saga and final installment of BioShock Infinite’s overarching storyline sees release today.
“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.”
“Plotzing” aside, Burial at Sea got a whole lot more important than just being a ‘what if’ side-story to the main Infinite game when it was revealed that the story of the two part downloadable episode would tie into, and actually bring to a close, the narrative of BioShock Infinite. Infinite was one of our games of the year here at BG and for good reason; other than the solid action and excellent craftsmanship that Irrational Games put into the title, it was also one of the strongest stories to come out of a video game since, well, the original BioShock.
For fans of the series, the story is key and Burial at Seas part 2 is set to deliver a very strong ending to the saga that was BioShock Infinite as players will get to step into the shoes of Elizabeth and take one last trip down the rabbit hole that is Rapture. The DLC pack is available right now to add onto your Xbox 360, PS3, or PC edition of BioShock Infinite. It’ll cost you $14.99 USD.
