We've been teased about BioShock Infinite's Burial at Sea DLC for a few months now, with no sign of when we'd be able to play. Friday, Irrational finally revealed the release date for the first installment.
Burial at Sea will arrive on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on Nov. 12. The DLC will cost $9.99 on its own, but season pass owners will get the content for free. The first of two planned add-ons set in Rapture, Burial at Sea finds Booker and Elizabeth in very different but familiar roles. This story happens to take place before the fall of Rapture, so it's been a much different world to explore than the one we witnessed in the original game.
“This is a love letter to the fans, but it’s also the beginning of a story that will give gamers a new perspective on the BioShock universe,” said Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games. “With Burial at Sea, we built a Rapture not from BioShock and BioShock Infinite scraps and pieces, but with environments almost entirely crafted from scratch.”
In addition to new story content, Burial at Sea will see the return of the weapon wheel, as well as the inclusion of new weapons and plasmids. There will also be new gear and tears to uncover, too. While we'll still have to wait a few weeks to play, at least the DLC will arrive before all the new consoles.
