Perception: By Former BioShock and Dead Space Devs

Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea episode to release tomorrow

For all of you who’ve played & enjoyed Bioshock Infinite here is some awesome news 🙂 the  first chunk of story DLC, set in that fragile underwater utopia/horrorshow, Rapture will be out tomorrow.  Episode One throws Booker and Elizibeth back to a time to a point before Rapture transitioned from endless parties to mutant massacre.
