Burial At Sea Episode 2 arrives for BioShock Infinite

Irrational's swansong hits download services today

The final piece of downloadable content has arrived for BioShock Infinite completing the BioShock story as much as Irrational will ever do.

Burial At Sea Episode Two is the swan song for Irrational Games, with the announcement last month from studio head and co-founder Ken Levine that they are to close after 17 years of making games.

This episode gives players get the chance to play as Elizabeth and it will see the return of a large chunk of the dramatis personae from the original BioShock story, drawing the series together in one final concluding story. It also adds a bonus 1998 gameplay mode which is a nod to Thief: The Dark Project which Levine worked on when he was at Looking Glass Studios. Burial At Sea Episode 2 arrives for BioShock Infinite

“I think the work the team did on this final chapter speaks for itself,” said Levine. “We built something that is larger in scope and length, and at the same time put the player in Elizabeth’s shoes.”

He continued, “This required overhauling the experience to make the player see the world and approach problems as Elizabeth would: leveraging stealth, mechanical insight, new weapons and tactics. The inclusion of a separate 1998 Mode demands the player complete the experience without any lethal action. BioShock fans are going to plotz.”

BioShock Infinite Burial At Sea Episode Two is out now on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 and requires Part One in order to play.
