BioShock Infinite: Expect an “Almost Survival Horror” Experience With Elizabeth DLC

By   /   3 years ago

Last week Irrational Games announced the upcoming DLC packs for BioShock: infinite. “Buried at Sea” features a two-part campaign where players will take control of Booker in one and then Elizabeth in the other. In both cases you’ll return to Rapture, the underwater city that we journeyed through in the first two installments of the game.

Speaking with IGN, the studio’s boss Ken Levine described the second episode as “almost survival horror”. Elizabeth’s campaign will also feature less combat and more strategy, lead level designer Amanda Jeffrey added.

“Liz is such a different character to Booker, and if we were to just put Booker in a dress, then that would be the most awful betrayal of what we’re doing for Liz, and players would just feel like it was a cheap way out, and that’s not something that we want to do,” Jeffrey said. “She needs to be kind of thinking in a roundabout way of how to deal with her enemies. And, sometimes, that might mean completely bypassing the enemy entirely. It may mean, in another situation, using the enemy’s strength against them.

“We’re still trying to work out exactly how extensive Liz’s tear abilities will be. I will say, though, that Elizabeth and her tear abilities are not necessarily a ‘win button.’ So she’s not entirely godlike in her abilities. She will have far more powerful ways of interacting with the world than we saw in Infinite proper, but at the same time, it won’t just be a case of walking to a space and going, ‘I’m just going to press a button, and now happy ending for everyone!'”

The Buried at Sea episodes will be priced $15 or 1200 Microsoft Points each. A release date has yet to be announced but we figure it will probably happen in the next couple of months.
