Burial At Sea Part 2 Has Something Better Than 1999 Mode
BioShock Infinite had its hardcore mode in the 1999 difficulty setting. The game’s DLC, Burial at Sea (more specifically the DLC’s second installment), will add a new difficulty level to spice up your experience.
Burial at Sea will feature something called 1998 Mode. Sounds intimidating, right?
It tasks players with completing the DLC using only non-lethal means. This is something I like, a lot. As someone who often takes the non-lethal route when given the option it’s great to see Irrational adding it in.
“In Burial at Sea – Episode Two we put a focus on balance and stealth mechanics,” said Ken Levine. “As we were developing this new style of gameplay, we started to see people self-impose non-lethal playthrough’s.
“Given the fan reception of 1999 Mode, we thought it would be cool to give them another way to play Burial at Sea that challenged their mastery of stealth tools.”
