Speaking to Eurogamer, BioShock creator Ken Levine has defended the length of the recently-released BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Part 1 DLC.
Levine said about the length of the DLC, "If you zip through it then it’s not a hugely long experience but if you dig deep it’s probably three hours plus, if you really dig deep.It’s not the longest thing in the world."
Gamers have complained that previous BioShock DLC, in particular the fan-favorite BioShock 2: Minerva’s Den, was better value for money, and they expected the same for BioShock Infinite’s latest DLC.
Levine responded to this with the following comment: "Minerva’s Den is terrific – I love it and it is effectively what we call a ‘kebash’ of BioShock 2. They take existing assets and modify them to make a new story. They did an amazing job with that. But we wanted to do something completely different. If you look at it, [Burial at Sea] is really the first level and a half of a new game – or maybe not a new game, but of a sequel. And we knew that meant it wouldn’t be the longest gameplay experience."
Burial at Sea Part 1 is out now for $14.99, check out our review coming soon.
