While the first bit of “Bioshock: Infinite” DLC is hitting the market today in the form of a horde mode called “Clash in the Clouds”, Irrational Games has gone ahead and announced the next two bits of DLC.
The announcement of a combat-centric DLC add-on to “Infinite” left fans a little cold as the combat in the game was not the main attraction for many of those that enjoyed the game. However, Irrational is responding to fan concerns with the next DLC entitled “Burial at Sea.” Split into two parts, this next chapter in the Bioshock series will have a stronger focus on a narrative experience than “Clash in the Clouds.”
In the trailer below, you’ll see Infinite’s main protagonist Booker DeWitt return as a private investigator working in Rapture when the underwater city was still thriving and alive. The trailer is full of noir-inspired dialog and style that makes it reminiscent of a 1940s detective movie. However, it won’t be filled with just heavy-handed metaphors and dangerous dames, there will still be plenty of combat to be had. Irrational has stated that this bit of DLC will blend the best elements of the original Bioshock’s combat with the newer elements from Infinite to form a cohesive and new experience.
A change in combat isn’t the only thing new coming to this DLC. As mentioned, “Burial at Sea” will be split into two parts and in part two fans will be able to play as Elizabeth for the first time. You can imagine that with Elizabeth and her abilities, that half of the DLC will play in a fairly unique way. It’ll be interesting to see how she’s utilized in the series and what sort of offensive tools she’ll have at her disposal.
Check out the trailer below and get ready to sink yourself into another mystery. Both DLC packs will be available for $14.99 each.
