Bioshock Infinite DLC Launches Today, Next Up Is a Return to RaptureBy: Josh Wolford - July 30, 2013
Bioshock Infinite DLC is here, and more is coming. Starting today, the decidedly less-exciting Clash in the Clouds will be beginning its rollout. And soon, episode 1 Burial at Sea will launch, taking us back to the underwater city of Rapture right before the fall.
“This first add-on pack puts an intense focus on BioShock Infinite combat. Combine weapons, Vigors, Gear, Tears, and Sky-Lines in ways you never thought possible as you square off against impossible odds. This pack features 60 challenges in four brand-new environments. Complete Blue Ribbon Challenges and unlock concept art, Voxophones, Kinetoscopes, and more in The Columbian Archeological Society. Climb the Leaderboards and earn new Achievements and Trophies,” says an Irrational Games blog post.
This DLC is beginning its rollout today – but you’re asked to be patient. It may take a few days for it to hit all platforms.
If this looks a bit underwhelming to you, fear not. A much more immersive, narrative experience is one the way. Burial at Sea will be launching soon (specific date TBD), and it takes Booker and Elizabeth back to Rapture – a couple of years before its epic collapse.
We’re promised new plasmids/vigors, tears, Big Daddies, and even some Rapture-based sky-lines.
“Gameplay has been modified to give the player an original BioShock combat experience that merges the best parts of BioShock and BioShock Infinite,” says Irrational.
Check out its trailer:
Both packs will be $14.99, and Burial at Sea will be included in the Bioshock Infinite Season Pass.
