Care to unleash your inner Garrett in the underwater city of Rapture? The Burial at Sea Episode Two DLC for BioShock Infinite will allow players to exercise their ninja skills with 1998 Mode. Irrational Games announced that the new DLC will have a mode inspired by the sneaky gameplay in the orginal Thief. It probably doesn’t hurt that the just-released Thief by Eidos Montreal adds synergy to this announcement.
“In Burial at Sea Episode Two we put a focus on balance and stealth mechanics,” said Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games. “As we were developing this new style of gameplay, we started to see people self-impose non-lethal playthroughs. 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.”
BioShock Infinite’s Burial at Sea Episode Two will launch on March 25th.
