Spoilers for Bioshock Infinite follow.
The scant few moments Booker and Elizabeth spent in Rapture in Bioshock Infinite were amongst my favorite scenes of the entire game.
A storytelling tour de force though lacklustre when it came to the first person combat that formed the meat of its gameplay, Bioshock Infinite was a game with great ambition that was fulfilled narratively but not in gameplay terms.
The Burial at Sea DLC, as yet without a release date, has now received a video feature which shows off the first five minutes of Bioshock’s return to rapture.
To be released in two parts, the first of which has you play as Booker, the second which has you play as Elizabeth, Burial at Sea looks set to right some of the wrongs that were present in Bioshock Infinite such as the frustrating combat and yawn inducing mid section.
In an interview with Polygon, Shawn Robertson, animation director for Burial at Sea, said that the title has been designed to explore the world of Rapture ahead of the revolution – “It’s a chance to walk around with people who aren’t crazy, aren’t attacking you. It’s citizens living their lives.”
Irrational Games look to have acknowleged that the opening, calmer moments of Bioshock Infinite were some of the most compelling in the game and are looking to recreate that experience in one of gaming’s most famous locales – Rapture.
