Get ready to go back to rapture as 2K games and Irrational Games revealed that BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1 will be available on November 12th.
It will be available for download via the PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE and PC. Episode 1 features Rapture as you’ve never seen it before—a shining jewel at the bottom of the ocean, built almost entirely from scratch in the BioShock Infinite game engine. Join Booker and Elizabeth in a film noir-style story that places them in a shining, pristine Rapture on the eve of its fall from grace. Explore the underwater city, try your hand at a grift or two, and even encounter some old “friends” from the original BioShock.
There have been some improvements to the combat system and comes with a greater emphasis on stealth and resource management that merges the best parts of BioShock and BioShock Infinite. It includes a new weapon, an old favorite weapon from the original BioShock, the return of the weapon wheel, a new Plasmid, new Gear, and Tears.
Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games stated:
This is a love letter to the fans, but it’s also the beginning of a story that will give gamers a new perspective on the BioShock universe, With Burial at Sea, we built a Rapture not from BioShock and BioShock Infinite scraps and pieces, but with environments almost entirely crafted from scratch.
Episode 2 is still in development and will bring gamers something they have been asking for since they first met the character of Elizabeth: the chance to see the world through her eyes and face challenges as she would. In this second episode of Burial at Sea, players will experience a new storyline, and a new stealth-oriented gameplay experience.
It is priced at £9.99 or free to those who own the Season Pass. Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below.Tweet this!
