BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1 is now available, offering
new content for BioShock Infinite, including a return to Rapture, the setting of
the first installment in this series of first-person shooters. The
game's official website features
a launch trailer to
help acclimate us to the add-on's underwater environment without getting the
bends. Here's the announcement, including a bit on plans for episode
2K and Irrational Games announced today that BioShock® Infinite:
Burial at Sea – Episode 1 is available for download worldwide* on the
PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360 games and entertainment
system from Microsoft and Windows PC starting today.
BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1, developed by Irrational Games, is
the second add-on content pack for the award-winning BioShock Infinite, and
features Booker and Elizabeth in a film noir-style story that places them in a
shining Rapture on the eve of its fall from grace.
Game Informer recently called BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1:
“…the DLC we've been waiting for.” Destructoid stated: “…I loved it so much that
it makes me wonder why it's not a standalone game.” IGN concluded: “It feels
damn good to be back in Rapture.”
BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1 can be purchased separately for
$14.99, or as part of the BioShock Infinite Season Pass, which is priced at
$19.99. The Season Pass, which is available for purchase via online marketplaces
on all available platforms starting today, contains $35 of playable content for
$19.99, including both Burial at Sea episodes, the previously released Clash in
the Clouds add-on pack, as well as the Early Bird Special Pack that has powerful
weapon upgrades, exclusive gold weapon skins and infusion bottles to upgrade
“It’s been particularly rewarding to return to Rapture with Booker and
Elizabeth,” said Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games. “We were
inspired by both Columbia’s and Rapture’s storylines, and merged them into
something new. The icing on the cake is seeing the BioShock Infinite team build
entirely new sections of the underwater city in the Infinite engine.”
BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 2 is in development at Irrational
Games and brings gamers something they have been asking for since they first met
the character of Elizabeth: the chance to see the world through her eyes and
face challenges as she would. In this second episode of Burial at Sea, players
will experience a new storyline, and a new stealth-oriented gameplay experience.
BioShock Infinite is rated M for Mature by the ESRB and is available now for the
PS3™ system, Xbox 360, Mac® and Windows PC. For the latest news and information

The one that spawns in the dentist office (with all the steam), is the one that always gets me. On first playthrough I think I threw the mouse about 3 feet in the air.
edit: Not watching the video, I'm assuming that's Sander Cohen?
