First 5 minutes of Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea
GameTrailers has just posted the first five minutes of the upcoming DLC for Bioshock Infinite. Burial at Sea will follow Booker and Elizabeth in yet another timeline from those they hopped back and forth through in the main game, this time seeing the duo explore Rapture on the eve of its descent into chaos. As it turns out, Booker has been called upon by Elizabeth to find a young girl who went missing recently, and who he presumes is dead. However, Elizabeth promises him worthy compensation for his cooperation, as she believes there is far more to the story than what Booker has pieced together on his own. The city of Rapture looks stunningly gorgeous, and it's really cool that we get to see its populous going about their everyday lives and having relaxed conversations, entirely unaware of the chaos that is about to unfold. While I certainly hope the creative staff expands upon the use of tears in gameplay, I'm also curious to see which familiar faces make a return in Burial at Sea. In this five minute sampling alone, Booker mentions Sullivan's name, Fontaine seems to be rather important with his orphanage and Little Sisters being immediately recognized by Rapture's citizens, and there is even a poster for one of Sander Cohen's musical works on display.
