BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea — Episode 2’s 1998 Mode Revealed

1998-Mode-610x597

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.

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1 was developed by Irrational Games, the studio behind the original BioShock and BioShock Infinite.

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.”
