The BioShock Infinite Season Pass includes both episodes of Burial At Sea. The first of which is mediocre, but the second is excellent. So an average of "decent" isn't too shabby for under £4! Thanks again, jaystan.
"I finished the episode with most of the hidden items under my belt in just over four hours, which in addition to the three hours of Episode 1, feels like a fair return for the season pass’ asking price," Brendan explained in his Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode 2 Review. "The gameplay and AI feels stripped down, but this is all about tying up the loose ends. As we’ve come to expect with every Bioshock game, the final revelations are nothing short of breathtaking and every shot from last few minutes is framed so beautifully that you’ll want it on your wall. Irrational Games, you will be missed."
Bioshock Infinite's season pass is an essential purchase for series fans and the £3.31/$4.99 price-tag is one of the best prices we've seen. Yes, this is on a Mac store, but the download is PC Steam compatible.
The season pass includes the excellent Burial at Sea episodes that sees you playing as Elizabeth in the infamous underwater city of Rapture. For series fans, it's just pure gold. You can read my review of Episode 2 here. The pass also includes the arena DLC and a few in-game bonuses for the main game. The main draw though is this unique trip to Rapture in it's prime before the splicers ripped it apart. Chilling and beautiful in equal measure.
Thanks to jaystan.
I tried to pick out the best deal for the Bioshock games in Steam's ludicrous summer sale and decided I better just list them all in a roundup for you. There are deals for the entire trilogy or Bioshock Infinite, the DLC Season Pass and more.

Here it is then, the final piece of Irrational and Ken Levine’s adventures with the Bioshock series. With Levine’s decision to close down the studio, the only Bioshock content we’ll be seeing in the future is if 2K decides to put a new team together and go on ahead without the game’s inspirational creative lead. Today though, we’re here to see how Irrational bow out on one of the most respected legacies in gaming.
To fully appreciate everything that Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea - Episode 2 has to offer, you really need to have completed not only Episode 1 and Infinite, but also the original two Bioshock games. Gameplay innovations are thin on the ground here, but Burial at Sea carries on where it left off by serving as a tribute to the fans and a link between the worlds of Columbia and the underwater city of Rapture.
Instead of hopping into the boots of yet another version of Booker/Comstock, you find yourself popping on the heels of Elizabeth as she tries to track down Suchong for Atlas (from Bioshock 1) who is holding Sally (the Little Sister from Episode 1) hostage. Elizabeth is travelling alone, but frequently speaks with Booker on the radio. Well, a version of Booker that lives in her head at least. It’s a touching relationship despite what we know of the events of Infinite and Episode 1 as this is a version of Booker that Elizabeth has broadly separated from the Comstock paradox. Thankfully, third time around, the mind-bending narrative is more evenly spread, easier to fathom and doesn’t clumsily hit you with an information overload in the closing scenes.Click here to read more...

If you're the kind of gamer who loves to spoil surprises for themselves, you're in luck, because 2K have released the first five minutes of BioShock Infinite's upcoming story expansion. Burial At Sea brings Booker and Elizabeth to Rapture, recasting them as PI and client in the submarine dystopia.
THIS IS ONE BIG SPOILER. It should be fairly self-evident, really.Click here to read more...
BioShock Infinite's upcoming story DLC takes players back to Rapture, replacing Vigors with Plasmids and reintroducing Booker as a hardbitten PI accepting an assignment from Elizabeth. This new trailer takes an appropriately mysterious tack, resembling a documentary or Public Service Announcement that helps to remind us of the setting.
Personally, we feel that Rapture is a far more believable and immersive game world than Columbia, despite Infinite's many accomplishments, so we're looking forward to going back somewhere beyond the sea. Happy we'll be.Click here to read more...
Irrational Games has waxed lyrical about the upcoming Burial At Sea DLC for BioShock Infinite, which will eventually let players assume the role of Elizabeth in a bizarre Rapture-themed side story.
