BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea - Episode 1 will be will released Nov. 12 on all platforms at a price of $14.99 according to a press release sent out. It also is included as part of the Season Pass for the game which can be purchased for $19.99 and includes both episodes of Burial at Sea plus the Clash in the Clouds DLC and the Early Bird Special Pack.
Episode 1 of Burial at Sea finds Booker and Elizabeth in Rapture with a film noir style setting with Booker as a private detective and Elizabeth as the femme fatale. Neither of the two have memories of each other or their experiences on Columbia yet they are brought together again at the height of the underwater city's power and just before its fall.
"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."
Burial at Sea - Episode 2 is still in development and will give gamers the opportunity to play as Elizabeth for the first time. No release date has been announced yet.
