'Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea' Wants to Be Sneaky, Puts an Emphasis on Stealth and Traps

BioShock Infinite's upcoming DLC Burial at Sea is going to feature a distinctly different tone than its high-flying, gun-slinging predescesor. On the PlayStation Blog, Ken Levine described the combat as "smaller scale," with an emphasis on stealth and traps.

"There are smaller scale combats that give the player much greater opportunity to observe the space ahead of time and set up the combat situation to his or her taste," Levine said. "Therefore traps become much more meaningful than they were in Infinite. So stealth becomes a larger component."

Overall, Levin is describing it as "a little more deadly but a little less frenetic."

Levine also added that the team is working on making sure the sections you play as Elizabeth feel unique. He stated that "the experiences of Burial At Sea: Episode One has a substantial effect on" Elizabeth, and the team is "spending a lot of time working on how she feels and how she plays.

There's no release date yet, but hopefully we'll see a bit more on this DLC soon.
