The highly anticipated BioShock Infinite DLC, “Burial At Sea: Episode 1” will be finally releasing on November 12th. (Currently episode 2 is still in development with no release date yet to be announced.) The DLC will be available to download on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC for $14.99 (or as part of the season pass).

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1 was developed by Irrational Games, the studio behind the original BioShock and BioShock Infinite. Players get to return to Rapture as you’ve never seen it before: a shining jewel at the bottom of the ocean, built almost entirely from scratch in the BioShock Infinite game engine. Join Booker and Elizabeth in a film noir-style story that places them in a shining, pristine Rapture on the eve of its fall from grace. Explore the underwater city, try your hand at a grift or two, and even encounter some old “friends” from the original BioShock.

According to the press release, the combat experience has been rebalanced and reworked with a greater emphasis on stealth and resource management that merges the best parts of BioShock and BioShock Infinite. It includes a new weapon, an old favorite weapon from the original BioShock, the return of the weapon wheel, a new Plasmid, new Gear, and Tears.

The Season Pass, which is currently available for purchase,contains $35 of playable content for $19.99, including both Burial at Sea episodes, the previously released Clash in the Clouds add-on pack, as well as the Early Bird Special Pack that has powerful weapon upgrades, exclusive gold weapon skins, and infusion bottles to upgrade player abilities.

“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.”
