BioShock Infinite takes place in an entirely different setting than the original BioShock. As Eurogamer reports, however, the next piece of downloadable content for Infinite will take players back to Rapture, the underwater city where the first game played out.
This time, Eurogamer says the story will be set on New Year's Eve, 1958, just before the bombing of Rapture that led to the events of the original BioShock. You'll get to play as both Booker and Elizabeth, the protagonists from Infinite, who will take on the roles of "private investigator and femme fatale respectively." The official teaser video certainly makes the experience seem... unique:
Entitled Burial at Sea, the DLC will come out in two parts. The first part, starring Booker DeWitt, will reportedly be released some time this year. The second one, starring Elizabeth, will follow "a little later."
According to Irrational Games' blog post, Burial at Sea's gameplay has been "modified to give the player an original BioShock combat experience that merges the best parts of BioShock and BioShock Infinite." That combination will involve "new weapons, new Plasmids/Vigors, Tears, Sky-Lines, and Big Daddies."
