No More BioShock? Irrational Games Shuts Down

Posted by Bob Muir on Feb 19, 2014 in Videogames

BioShock Infinite

After a troubled development time, Irrational Games released BioShock Infinite in March 2013 to great sales and great reviews, cementing its place on many Game of the Year lists. The additional DLC story, Burial at Sea, is just about finished. So what’s next? Apparently nothing, as Ken Levine is closing Irrational Games so he can move on to “narrative-driven games for the core gamer that are highly replayable,” likely smaller and released digitally. He’s staying with publisher 2K Games and making a new team with the mere 15 Irrational employees that aren’t getting let go. Read more…

First BioShock Infinite DLC Released, Upcoming ‘Burial At Sea’ Features New Story

Posted by Bob Muir on Jul 31, 2013 in Videogames

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea

After much waiting, Irrational Games has finally revealed its DLC plans for game-of-the-year contender BioShock Infinite. Burial at Sea will be a two-chapter DLC that tells the story of an alternate reality Booker and Elizabeth who live not in Columbia, the city in the sky, but in Rapture, from the original BioShock, on the eve of is downfall. Unlike the first BioShock, which is set after the underwater city has torn itself apart, this story is at least partially set when the city is still functioning properly. It looks like a film noir story. But most enticingly is the fact that you will play the second chapter, set during the downfall, as Elizabeth, who will play much differently than Booker.

Burial at Sea hasn’t been dated yet, but I’d expect the first chapter to arrive later this year, with the second chapter stated to arrive by March 2014. Each chapter will cost $15, but those who paid $20 for the Season Pass DLC obviously get it for free.

In the meantime, there’s a new piece of DLC you can download right now: Clash in the Clouds. For $5 (or free if you have the Season Pass), you’ll get four arena maps with 60 challenges. It’s standard “horde” mode stuff where you fight waves and waves of enemies. Along the way, you can unlock new concept art, voxophones, kinetoscopes, and other materials in The Columbian Archeological Society. I’m not that astounded by this offering, but if you really enjoyed the main story’s combat, this will be another big dose of fighting.

Ever wanted to fight an evil, robotic version of George Washington with a gattling gun? No? Well, I have bad for you then about BioShock: Infinite. IGN recently released a short video featuring the “Big Daddies” of BioShock: Infinite, now called “Heavy Hitters.” Ken Levine tries to make them seem totally different in the interview, but come on guys, they’re this game’s version of Big Daddies. Not saying that the game doesn’t look amazing, though. Video after the jump! Read more…
