The original Bioshock is my favourite video game. The story is incredible, the gameplay is exciting and varied, and the detailed character and environment designs bring everything to life. It’s a must-play for ALL gamers. Period.
The reason I’m so excited about Bioshock Infinite: Burial at sea is one I’m sure fans of the franchise will understand — the return to Rapture.
Rapture was the crumbling, water-logged wreck of an attempt at complete utopia, and the brain-child of Andrew Ryan. It’s citizens were characterized by an addiction to gene-altering plasmids, and it also happens to be one of the best settings in video game history.
The reason I’m so excited to see what Ken Levine and the folks at Irrational games have in store with this piece of downloadable content, is because it takes us back to Rapture, before its fall from grace.
“The story takes place on New Year’s Eve, 1958, which is the night that the bombing happened in the original Rapture and the revolution started.”
According to Ken Levine in an interview to Eurogamer, “The story takes place on New Year’s Eve, 1958, which is the night that the bombing happened in the original Rapture and the revolution started.” I recommend you read the whole interview. It’s great.
Preview for Burial at Sea:
No doubt this DLC will be a must play. It’s just a matter of what goodies are in store for us.
Do you think there will be a Bioshock title for next-generation consoles?
