BioShockInfinite_BurialAtSea_Episode1

The first episode of Burial at Sea, the two-part DLC campaign for BioShock Infinite which brings the series back to the underwater city of Rapture, will make its worldwide debut on November 12th for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

From 2K’s press release:

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1, developed by Irrational Games, the studio behind the original BioShock and BioShock Infinite, features Rapture as you’ve never seen it before—a shining jewel at the bottom of the ocean, built almost entirely from scratch in the BioShock Infinite game engine. Join Booker and Elizabeth in a film noir-style story that places them in a shining, pristine Rapture on the eve of its fall from grace. Explore the underwater city, try your hand at a grift or two, and even encounter some old “friends” from the original BioShock.

The combat experience has been rebalanced and reworked with a greater emphasis on stealth and resource management that merges the best parts of BioShock and BioShock Infinite. It includes a new weapon, an old favorite weapon from the original BioShock, the return of the weapon wheel, a new Plasmid, new Gear, and Tears.

Burial at Sea – Episode 1 will be sold separately for $14.99, but for only five bucks more you can buy the Season Pass for the previously released Clash in the Clouds and Early Bird Special Pack add-ons, as well as both Burial at Sea episodes.

Burial at Sea – Episode 2, which will have players in the role of Elizabeth, does not yet have a confirmed release date.
