Here’s something you didn’t see coming, Irrational has announced that Bioshock Infinite’s first piece of downloadable content will be available from today.
Clash in the Clouds is a wave-based arena mode and will include new voxophones, kinetoscopes, and other unlockables. The DLC will cost $5 and will be available on Steam from 12 p.m. ET–the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions will be available as soon as Microsoft and Sony update their stores.
Of course things get even better. Irrational also revealed that the second and third DLC releases, titled Burial at Sea, will form one massive story arc which sees Booker and Elizabeth return to Rapture. The DLC is set on New Year’s Eve, 1958, the night of the bombing that signaled the end for Rapture. In episode 1 you will play as Booker and in episode 2 you’ll take control of Elizabeth.
No release date was offered for Burial at Sea, but Irrational did say that the first episode will be out before the end of the year.
