Bioshock Infinite DLC release is a go…
About the DLC:
The first DLC is BioShock Infinite: Clash in the Clouds. An add-on pack that puts an intense focus on BioShock Infinite® combat. Combine weapons, Vigors, Gear, Tears and Sky-Lines in ways you never thought possible as you square off against impossible odds. This pack features 60 challenges in 4 brand-new maps. Complete Blue Ribbon Challenges and unlock concept art, Voxophones, Kinetoscopes, and more in The Columbian Archeological Society.
The second is BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea. A two-part add-on campaign featuring an all-new story for Booker and Elizabeth, set in the underwater city of Rapture before its fall.
These two campaigns will be available individually for $15.00 or 1200 Microsoft Points, and are also included as part of the BioShock Infinite Season Pass.
“We are really excited to offer our fans the content that they have been asking for,” said Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games. “With Clash in the Clouds, people get a pure action experience that takes BioShock Infinite combat to its highest challenge and intensity level. With the Burial at Sea episodes, we are building a Rapture-based narrative experience that is almost entirely built from scratch.”
The BioShock Infinite Season Pass is available now for $19.99 or 1600 Microsoft Points and includes all three pieces of add-on content, as well as the Early Bird Special Pack, which includes powerful weapon upgrades, exclusive gold weapon skins and infusion bottles to upgrade abilities.
… WIRED.COM … said today that on Wednesday, Irrational Games, the developers of BioShock Infinite, originally scheduled a released date of October 16, but has then, been pushed back to February 26, 2013. The developer also said that it would not show the anticipated shooter at the E3 or Gamescom trade shows this year.
“It means a bit more waiting, but more importantly, it means an even better BioShock Infinite, said creative director Ken Levine in a statement. “The great can be made greater, and we owe it to both ourselves and to you, our fans, to take this opportunity,” he said.
When Wired interviewed Levine in March of this year, he was enthusiastic about the original October 16 date.
“[We] have an end date and we can know when it’s time to put pencils down,” he said then. “You can keep going forever, honestly. I could work on this game for another 20 years and keep polishing it and making it better. But at some point –- and this wasn’t decided by our publisher, this was my decision –- you need to say ‘this is the date.’ It helps keep the team focused on finishing it, knowing they have a constraint. I always think you work the hardest when you have constraints because that sort of helps you define your task.”
North American and European players will get their hands on Irrational’s latest before the Fall rush completely engulfs the industry.
No sense in dragging this one out. BioShock Infinite, that game that you’ve probably been desperately anticipating since last E3 when the collective video game industry suddenly found itself whipped into a crazed frenzy over it, finally has a release date.
Irrational let it be known on its website today that players in North America will be able to get their hands on Infinite on October 16 of this very year, while international folk will get their chance on October 19.
It’s worth noting that the PC version of Infinite will be coming at the same time as its console counterparts. Specifically, it’s worth noting that because of how infrequently that happens nowadays.
Odds are we won’t hear too much more about the game until round about E3 time this year, but with any luck, by then we’ll actually be able to sit down and play the thing. That’d be great, as I’ve been dying to know how all that skyhook craziness actually works in practice. It looks like absolute voodoo when you’re watching someone else do it.
BioShock fans were greeted with a new tidbit of information regarding Irrational’s upcoming continuance of the series, BioShock Infinite. Specifically, Irrational unveiled a brand new mode for the game, ” 1999 ” one steeped in heavy challenge and permanent consequence that’s designed to give the more hardcore fans a more intense overall experience.
