Irrational Games has announced two new DLC’s, the ‘Clash in the Clouds’ and ‘Burial at Sea’ for BioShock Infinite.
The ‘Clash in the Clouds’ DLC is out today, and costs 400 MS points (included in the game’s Season Pass). It’s a challenge mode that places the player against waves of Columbia’s guard. Each wave features Blue Ribbon Challenges that task the player with defeating all enemies within a set time limit as well as other objectives set across various arenas.
Irrational Games Creative Director, Ken Levine, said:
“We are really excited to offer our fans the content that they have been asking for. With Clash in the Clouds, people get a pure action experience that takes BioShock Infinite combat to its highest challenge and intensity level. With the Burial at Sea episodes, we are bauilding a Rapture-based narrative experience that is almost entirely built from scratch.”

The second DLC, will feature two parts, the first of which is ‘Burial at Sea.’ Each part of the DLC will cost 1,200 MS Points (also included in the game’s Season Pass) and will be available in the Fall.
Levine described the DLC as a detective story, where Booker is a private eye in Rapture who is approached by Elizabeth. The two don’t seem to know each other.
“At the very beginning, you’re Booker, private detective in Rapture in your office and this woman comes in, and you two don’t seem to know each other, and we don’t explain that. We always like to put people in a place where there’s a story that ends up making sense, but we don’t want the obvious… We like people immediately having a sense of wondering what’s going on.”
“The story takes place on New Year’s Eve, 1958, which is the night that the bombing happened in the original Rapture and the revolution started, and we were really excited, having done all the work on the population – a living, breathing population in Columbia – because Rapture was a tomb, y’know?
“Originally we wanted to show Rapture when it was fully alive, but do it in the context of an interesting story, not just to go back and talk about Midi-chlorians, you know? To do it in a sort of integrated way, but to tell a story we thought was important to tell with these characters as well.”
