The final chapter in BioShock Infinite launches today.
One month ago Irrational Games, developer of the BioShock series, shocked everyone by announcing that it was shutting down. Today their swan song, BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea - Episode Two, launches for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (Japan will see a release later in the year). This DLC content is included for owners of the BioShock Infinite Season Pass.
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.”
The launch trailer offers a glimpse of the final episode of the Burial at Sea saga and the conclusion of BioShock Infinite. See the world through the eyes of Elizabeth as she continues her journey through Rapture.
