The news was revealed by 2K and Irrational Games in a blog post, and promised a conclusion to both the storyline to Burial at Sea as well as Bioshock Infinite.
Irrational Games’ Creative Director Ken Levine said: “In Burial at Sea – Episode Two, we are delivering a story that involves nearly every major character from the original BioShock and BioShock Infinite,” adding that “It is a story that will give gamers a new perspective on the BioShock universe and conclude the story of BioShock Infinite and Burial at Sea.”
The DLC sees players taking control of the character Elizabeth for the first time, with a stealthier approach to the gameplay being promised as we trawl through Rapture for possibly the last time.
The reveal of this release date comes after Ken Levine stated on Twitter earlier today that completionists would take “five, maybe six hours” to complete everything.
This comes after some complained about the length of the first episode of the DLC, which could be completed in about two hours or so. This prompted Levine to defend the contents length.
Burial at Sea Episode 2 will cost $14.99/ £11.99, or is available with the Bioshock Infinite Season Pass, which features both episodes of Burial at Sea, the Clash in the Clouds DLC and the Early Bird Special Pack for $19.99/£15.99.
Last week, Irrational posted a trailer for the DLC, which you can see below. Please be warned that the video contains major spoilers.
