BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea‘s first chapter releases today, and as it deals with events after the twists-and-turns thriller of Infinite, there are few options for seeing what it’s all about without confronting a faceful of spoilers. 2K Games’ launch trailer looks like a safe approach, though.
What to make of Burial at Sea? Planned as a two-part episodic expansion for BioShock Infinite, it takes us back to where the series began: The majestic underwater city of Rapture. One part BioShock nostalgia trip and one part extraneous BioShock Infinite epilogue, Burial at Sea‘s first episode falls unfortunately short of both its predecessors.
You’ll be able to go back to Rapture on November 12 when part one of BioShock Infinite‘s Burial at Sea DLC comes out for consoles and PC.
About a month after BioShock Infinite released, graphic designer Joe Trinder invented a an advertising poster for a vigor that harkened back to one of the plasmids from the original BioShock. That poster and its plasmid will be featured in the “Burial at Sea” extension due to release later this year.
Sure, the game came out several months ago. Most of the good jokes have already been made. And yet some of the goofier aspects of BioShock Infinite are still pretty funny.
We’re goin’ back to Rapture … Rapture … with Booker and Elizabeth in Burial at Sea, the first downloadable extension to BioShock Infinite, and if you have to ask why they ended up there and Booker is a Sam Spade caricature, you probably have not finished the game.
