BioShock Infinite Gets a Season Pass

Look, Irrational. I want to play BioShock Infinite. I am excited for BioShock Infinite. I have incredibly high hopes for BioShock Infinite.  But, seriously, enough about BioShock Infinite. It’s like talking about how great the cake behind the window is.  There comes a time in a man’s life where he shoves his hand through the glass, bloody and in pain, and grabs a handful of red velvet.

That might be me.  But are you happy?  System specs, trailer, trailer, trailer.  And here I am, BioShock Infinite-less.

Long story short, BSI is getting a season pass which lets you get all the DLCs for the price of two. All of those wonderful, artful, thoughtful DLCs. Not simply DLC, but DLCs! Oh, heck, while I’m at it, let me throw down another trailer that I missed posting below before I get to the official press release.

“Get three all-new add-on packs for the price of two, plus the Early Bird Special Pack full of exclusive gameplay-enhancing bonuses

Windsor, UK – February 21, 2013 – 2K Games and Irrational Games today announced that production of downloadable content has recently begun for their forthcoming BioShock® Infinite and revealed details of the BioShock Infinite Season Pass*. Three all-new add-on packs are in development that will provide hours of additional gameplay and continue the player’s journey in the sky-city of Columbia with new stories, characters, abilities and weapons.

The BioShock Infinite Season Pass will be available on March 26, 2013 when the game is planned to launch, and provide nearly £24 of add-on content for £15.99 (PlayStation®Network, Windows® PC) or 1,600 Microsoft Points (Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network) – a saving of more than 30%. The Season Pass will include all three add-on packs, and can be pre-ordered today or at a participating retailer**.

Those who purchase the BioShock Infinite Season Pass will also receive the Early Bird Special Pack at no extra cost. This bonus pack contains four pieces of exclusive gear, a Machine Gun Damage Upgrade, a Pistol Damage Upgrade, a gold skin for both weapons and five Infusion bottles that allow players to increase their health, their shield durability or their ability to use Vigors by increasing the quantity of Salts they can carry.

In addition, those who pre-order BioShock Infinite will receive the Industrial Revolution Pack for free. This pack grants exclusive access to three in-game gear items that boost combat abilities, $500 bonus to in-game currency, five lock picks and the Industrial Revolution puzzle game, which unlocks stories of Columbia and allows players to pledge their allegiance to the Vox Populi or Founders through Facebook.

BioShock Infinite is rated 18 by PEGI. For the latest news and information on BioShock Infinite, become a fan on Facebook and follow Irrational Games on Twitter
