2K Games has announced that the first episode of BioShock Infinite: Burial At Sea will be available on November 12th. The DLC will carry a price tag of $14.99 and will launch simultaneously on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
In Burial At Sea, you will return to the world of Rapture that was brought so vividly to life in the first two BioShock games. Bearing a strong resemblance to classic “film-noir” tales, protagonist Booker DeWitt will explore the undersea dystopia on the eve of its downfall, which takes place one year before the original BioShock began. Further plot details have not been disclosed, but like all noir films, it will probably be a good, hard-boiled mystery.
In the DLC you can expect to run into not only your companion from BioShock Infinite, Elizabeth, but some “old friends” from previous games as well. One would expect some of these friends to include the likes of Andrew Ryan, Frank Fontaine, Sofia Lamb and the Big Daddys. Oh how I’ve missed those wacky guys.
As a fan of the franchise, I have to say that I’m pretty excited about going to visit Rapture once again. The underwater territory was one of the main reasons why I became interested in BioShock in the first place. It was a unique design that was unlike any other shooter out there at the time. Of course, when we originally got to explore it, the area was rundown and destroyed. Burial At Sea represents the first time that we will be able to see it before all of the chaos happened, which should be interesting.
Again, this is the first part of the Burial At Sea DLC. The second part, which will supposedly focus on Elizabeth, does not currently have a release date.
