Here’s how to unlock BioShock Infinite’s 1999 Mode

Tuesday, 26th March 2013 21:38 GMT By Phil Owen

We had previously been told that in order to play BioShock Infinite in the unforgiving 1999 Mode, you’d need to beat the game on Hard difficulty first. But that is not the case, as you can also use the Konami code, I have been told.

The code, in case you were wondering, is as follows:

For PC and Xbox 360: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A
For PS3: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, O, X

Any of you folks eager to take advantage of this code? I don’t think I’m cool enough to go anywhere near 1999 Mode.

    Well, i’m not 100% sure about following, but you also can try this:
    1. After game is complete press Continue on the main screen
    …you should found yourself at the lighthouse straight after leaving Rapture
    2. Change difficulty to Hard
    3. Beat the game =)(there are no battles or stuff like that, only final dialogues)

    After that i was able to select 1999 mode when starting new game
