If you've been waiting anxiously to expand upon your amazing Bioshock Infinite experience, the time has finally come.
2K and Irrational Games have announced the three upcoming pieces of downloadable content: Clash in the Clouds and two episodes of Burial at Sea. The former is now available for download via Steam on the PC, and it will hit the PS3 and Xbox 360 later this week. It will retail for $4.99, but it's free for those who picked up the $20 Season Pass.
Clash in the Clouds will be heavily focused on combat and delivers four brand new maps with increasingly difficult enemies, along with optional extended challenges. There are actually 60 challenges overall, so there's plenty of bang for your buck. Players will also be able to unlock concept art, voxophones, kinetoscopes and other goodies. This extra content is designed specifically for those who enjoyed the gameplay more than its compelling narrative.
Then there's Burial at Sea, Episodes One and Two. These won't arrive until 2014, unfortunately, but they're story-driven and are actually set in Rapture! That's right, we're going back to the setting of the original Bioshock , and we'll see how the the two plots come together. The gameplay has been altered to give us the "original Bioshock combat experience" and we'll also get new weapons, Plasmids/Vigors, Tears, Sky-Lines and Big Daddies. Sounds awesome!
Episode Two will put gamers in control of Elizabeth as she "seeks to bring closure to her story." This will also be set in Rapture. Each Episode will cost $15 if you don't have the Season Pass but considering what you get, that sounds fair. We get to play as Elizabeth!
