2K is Teasing Something BioShock Related

2K Games knows just how to entice fans without telling us ANYTHING. Their UK Twitter account sent out a tweet last week of an image from “BioShock.” More specifically a Rapture BioShock image. But they have yet to tell us what it means.

You can see the image above. It comes from a section of Rapture known as Eve’s Garden and it is an advertisement from Fort Frolic (one of my personal favorite levels of the game.) However, it should be noted that only the UK branch of 2K has posted the image.

It’s doubtful that a new game is on the horizon so soon after Infinite (but a gal can dream, right?) And because it was only posted by UK is might be just a regional promotion. Hopefully they stop playing without hearts and announce something soon.

BioShock: Burial At Sea To Be Released November 12

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.”
