BioShock Infinite DLC announcement expected tomorrow - Report

BioShock Infinite creative director Ken Levine teases reveal of first downloadable content pack is expected tomorrow.

Irrational Games and 2K Games are expected to reveal BioShock Infinite’s upcoming downloadable content tomorrow, according to tweets by Irrational Games creative director Ken Levine.

Levine initially tweeted that he was "excited for tomorrow," leading to speculation that details for the previously announced, upcoming DLC for BioShock Infinite would soon be revealed. The cryptic tweet was further clarified when, in response to a statement from a follower that July was ending, and that the company had promised information, he replied, "RT @lokp14: @IGLevine july is ending ken.. where's the DLC info? …-Read my tweets today, dude/dudette! all that tweet sweat for nothing!"

In February this year, BioShock Infinite publisher 2K Games said the studio was working on three pieces of additional content for the title, including new characters, stories, and abilities, which would add hours of additional gameplay.

In April, a 2K Games developer included a listing for "animation and R&D for a new AI companion character" on his LinkedIn page.

If.. You've already beat the game, that's a pretty final ending. I fail to see how DLC could possibly be relevant after the fact.

When will they launch a new sequel? Bioshock infinite had made me really excited!

Gamespot are slipping a bit. This is the announcement that there will be an announcement, but they missed out on doing the announcement telling us there would be an announcement of an upcoming announcement.

This is not even a game, it's a movie, there's no gameplay at all.

I'm excited, Infinite is the first game I've ever gotten a season pass for. Sure its taken a while for anything regarding DLC to be announced, but that hasn't bugged me as much as others. While I do like multiplayer, I've found that I much prefer the single player experience with video games so the Bioshock's have always been awesome games in my opinion!

I loved BioShock: Infinite's world/setting and story, but the gameplay felt so...unoriginal to me...on one hand I think it's excellent, on the other, I get so bored during (most) fights (unless it's a damn Handyman, shit) that I don't feel motivated to continue...the ending was good, sure, but if this DLC is less focused on story, then I won't be buying, I suppose. That, and I'm broke. xD

frankly it's taken too long to get this content out, Bioshock Infinite was fantastic, I played it to completion twice in a row... but that was months ago, I'm not as excited as I was back then - course I'll still play the DLC, just not something that is on my mind at all.

I thought they was talking about a new Bioshock game for a second. It's damn shame to make a big deal about DLC.

I will never get excited for DLC. Full Expansions yes, overpriced DLC no.

DLC just isnt news to me anymore. Because we all know its coming for every single game, unless your Street fighter 4 we dont just get DLC we got 4 FULL versions of the exact same game with a few xtra characters in each version!!! They get to put Buzz words in like Super and then ARCADE and then ULTRA. I think it should be compulsory for them to call it Street Fighter IV SUPER-ARCADE-ULTRA-EXTREME . They should do that with Bioshock. BIOSHOCK SUPER-ULTRA INFINITELY EXTREME.

People who complain about DLC milking. Get it straight, there is nothing wrong with DLC. There IS however something wrong with DLC milking. DLC can extend the games life and keep it fresh for a long time. Fallout anyone? Its been months since Bioshock release and we have heard little so I expect the DLC to be substantial and WORTH it. Not sure if its even related company wise but Bioshock 2s single player DLC was amazing one of the best I ever played.

i really only want more story.

i think it'd be awesome

 if you could experience what anna went through exactly from the moment she was taken by comstock and made into elizabeth. her first experience and recognition of her powers, the interaction and rift with comstock.

they could even skip forward and make you play through what happened when Booker jumped forward in time (''snow in july?''), meets old elizabeth and sees that comstock is already attacking.

then you'd switch back to booker and you have to get to comstock and use his personal rift device (the lutece model, but he's improved it) when he's already won, on the ground, where comstock's built a new new york, decorated with statues of himself and filled with blue, the colour of the founders. you'd have to fight your way through this city, decked out with some new vigors in the years that've passed.

Biocock Infishit is still pumping out DLC for the sheep!? Yay! Come up to the front barn, herds of sheep! Farmer says its feeding time! Come one, come all, and let them pour manure into your soup bowl!

@Mauro Figueiredo How so?

@Daian There's a massive grey area between the two.  How big does a DLC have to be before it's an expansion?

@nyran125tk Every single game?  How about all those MMOs out there with their free updates?  Egosoft's X games keep getting extra free content.  There's some Witcher 2 DLC but it's all free.

@projectpat72988 Agreed. There's a difference with cutting out game content for DLC and creating entirely new DLC from scratch.

@hekifier Stupid troll.  Spewing unsubstantiated idiocy does not make you better than the sheep.  In fact, the farmer is actually a troll hunter, and only using the sheep as bait.  Your head looks good mounted on his wall.  Poor troll... killed by ignorance.

@hekifier If the DLCs are good I have no problem getting the Season Pass, look at Borderlands 2, whose DLCs ended being better than the main game itself.

@hekifier Are you trying to be funny? Because it isn't working buddy. Go to a Call of Duty post. Your joke would make more sense there.

@QueerGamersXist @cyborg21s No, there's no multiplayer in Infinite. The season pass description says the DLC will add new story, places, weapons and characters. That's why I'm excited for new single player.

@Zloth2 At least 20 hours of gameplay.

You're personal time limits may vary...but it shouldn't be under 4.
