BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 2’s 1998 mode has been revealed by Irrational Games.


The mode follows 1999 Mode which was part of the core BioShock Infinite games as the hardest difficulty to play.

The mode will task players with completing the DLC using only non-lethal methods.

“In Burial at Sea – Episode 2 we put a focus on balance and stealth mechanics,” said Ken Levine. “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.”

The content is included as part of the Season Pass or can be purchased separately when it launches on March 25.
