Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode 2 to have 1998 mode

Critically acclaimed title Bioshock Infinite’s second DLC episode will feature a brand new difficulty mode called 1998 mode. The 1998 mode is similar to 1999 mode from the first two Bioshock games, the 1999 mode is considered to be the most difficult setting in the game.

1998 mode will have players go through the DLC episode using only non-lethals, so strategizing your moves will be very important.

In Burial at Sea – Episode Two we put a focus on balance and stealth mechanics,

As we were developing this new style of gameplay, we started to see people self-impose non-lethal playthrough’s.

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: Burial at Sea Episode 2 arrives on all platforms March 25th. It’s great to see that even though developers Irrational Games are sizing down, their development on promised DLC is right on track.


Did you try out the first episode? I really liked going back to Rapture and exploring the familiar sights with the characters from Infinite. What did you think of the episode? Let us know in the comments below.
