A two-part story titled Burial at Sea will also be arriving to BioShock Infinite, which will make up theÂ remaining two pieces of DLC which will come with the Season Pass. Separately, each part will cost $14.99. The first part will be set in Rapture on December 31st, 1958, the night before the fall of Rapture. Players will take on the role of Booker DeWitt.
