Just last week 2K released a new preview for its upcoming BioShock Infinite DLC. The preview teased returning BioShock characters and a new, intriguing situation but was light on the details when it came to the content’s release. Today that oversight has been remedied.
2K today announced that BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea episode two will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on March 25. The content will be available for $15 or as part of the BioShock Infinite DLC season pass.
Of course, March is the worst possible month for gamers to have more content announced for. The month is already packed with South Park: The Stick of Truth, Dark Souls 2, TitanFall, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Infamous: Second Son, and a few other great-looking niche games. It might be easy for gamers to forget the second half of the Burial at Sea story in the midst of such a big month for gaming, especially given the lackluster reception of the first half of the story.
Even so, BioShock fans who paid up for the season pass will get the conclusion to Burial at Sea and get the opportunity to spend even more time in rapture. 2K is promising that the new DLC will involve aspects from both BioShock and BioShock Infinite, providing a piece of fan service worthy of the BioShock series’ twisted storyline.
“In Burial at Sea episode two, we are delivering a story that involves nearly every major character from the original BioShock and BioShock Infinite,” said Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games. “It is a story that will give gamers a new perspective on the BioShock universe and conclude the story of BioShock Infinite and Burial at Sea.”
