2K Games has announced that the first episode of BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea will be released on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on November 12. Players will be able to get it for $14.99/£9.99 as a standalone purchase, or as a part of the game’s Season Pass for $19.99/£15.99.

“This is a love letter to the fans, but it’s also the beginning of a story that will give gamers a new perspective on the BioShock universe,” said Ken Levine, creative director.

“With Burial at Sea, we built a Rapture not from BioShock and BioShock Infinite scraps and pieces, but with environments almost entirely crafted from scratch.”

Irrational Games are currently working on the DLC’s second episode, where players will step into the elegant shoes of Elizabeth and experience more stealth-oriented gameplay mechanics.
