Next BioShock Infinite DLC to be set in Rapture

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."

  1. Same here, I lost interest shortly after, when searching for the pieces of big-daddy. I did finish the 2nd one though.

  2. Actually, I get the impression this is a, “Same people, different worlds,” kinda thing. That is, the Lexx/Battlestar Galactica, “This has happened before. This will happen again,” kinda thing.

    Time is cyclical. Every world, every time, every moment is repeating, yet there are differences, too. The more things change, the more they stay the same?

    “This has happened before. This will happen again.”

  3. Wonder if they’re actually trying to fit this into the Bioshock Infinite timeline or if this is supposed to be something on the side you aren’t supposed to consider to be part of that game. The trailer in and of itself makes it seem… implausible, that they’re following the original storyline.

    When you write something so existentialist you eventually back yourself into a corner. Infinite was interesting to play through, but the ending felt out of place. I would actually say they originally wrote the game one way and then changed it like 1/3 the way through development, the same with Elizabeths character.

  4. I found no joy in that game after the 5th level. So I’d say “no.” Total grind to get through.

  5. I stopped playing after the whole “would you kindly” explanation, so I really don’t know what the ending-ending is…should I bother?

  6. This is strangely appealing. I LOVED the first Bioshock – until the ending, then I was done and never had the urge to play it again until hearing about this…

  7. I love the entire Bioshock series, but yeah, Infinite really made me hate early 1900s office furniture.

  8. I suppose they will be charging for both parts of the DLC so it should really be considered two different DLCs. Would probably make sense to wait for both before looking into getting them.

  9. It’s the one with 24 Hour DLC shopping in [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHCdS7O248g<]rapture[/url<].

  10. Hopefully a bit more focus on constant gunplay instead of 1-2 minute firefights split by mini-cutscenes and scavenging desk drawers.
