1998 Mode is coming for “BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 2.” Irrational Games announced the new difficulty mode which calls back to the original game, “Thief” by finishing the story without killing anyone.
1998 Mode is similar to Infinite’s 1999 Mode. Irrational Games director Ken Levine said,
“In Burial at Sea – Episode Two we put a focus on balance and stealth mechanics. As we were developing this new style of gameplay, we started to see people self-impose non-lethal playthrough’s. Given the fan reception of 1999 Mode, we thought it would be cool to give them another way to play Burial at Sea that challenged their mastery of stealth tools.”
Burial at Sea — Episode 2 will be available on March 25, and will conclude Irrational’s time telling BioShock stories.
