The lights are on
Developer Irrational announced today that it
will be offering a season pass for Ken Levine's much anticipated BioShock
Infinite, which will offer you access to all the game's DLC and additional
content for a one-time fee - plus a little bonus content for season pass
According to Irrational's press release, the
season pass will give you "Three all-new add-on packs 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."
If you were to buy all this content separately, it would cost $30, but the
season pass is only $19.99 (for PSN and PC) or 1,600 MS points (for Xbox 360).
In addition, nabbing a season pass will get you the "Early Bird Special Pack,"
which includes "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."
If you pre-order the game itself, you'll get the Industrial Revolution Pack
for free, which boasts "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."

Sounds cool, but all of the special item/gun schemes to get people to spend money as fast as possible are getting annoying. Then again, it's a rough business...
Oh no, not the CoD syndrome....
I feel bad for saying this but with all these keys and passes and the ps4 cash grab. I think the industry needs another crash like they did in the 80s. They need to learn not to Dick around the consumer.
i have never bought a season pass for any game before
I bought a season pass for Halo 4 and even that feels like a mistake. never again, except for maybe Battlefield 4. Certainly not for a Bioshock game.
DLC is totally optional, no one is forcing you to buy it. I won't buy the season pass, because I don't have to.
I can't wait!!!!
