Now that BioShock Infinite has been out for a little over a month, gamers are beginning to wonder what is planned for its three DLCs. While the main story of Infinite is complete, there are many interesting directions extra content can explore. Here’s a few things that should be included in the BioShock Infinite DLC.
More about Columbia’s monsters and Vigors
Fink witnessed what seems to be the creation of Rapture’s Big Daddies through a tear. However, it would be interesting if we saw exactly what he did, instead of just heard about it through the Voxophone. Another open issue is Vigors. Why doesn’t Columbia’s citizens use them like the people of Rapture did? Vigors are common knowledge in Columbia, and a few of them were shown at the Fair. Did Fink warn Columbia about the dangers of Vigors because he saw what Plasmids did to Rapture? To get a closer look at how Songbird or the Vigors were created would give gamers a chance to reconnect with Rapture, and flesh out Fink’s story more.
Elizabeth’s time as Columbia’s leader
When Elizabeth surrenders to Songbird, Booker sets out to rescue her. He crosses a foggy bridge where it’s snowing on the other side. Once inside, he finds several tears. One of them mentions he never came back to rescue Elizabeth. Losing hope, she finally gave into Comstock’s demands and attacked New York City in the 1980s. In Infinite, older Elizabeth gives Booker a note and sends him back to find young Elizabeth. However, we don’t know much about Elizabeth’s time as leader of the city. She created the Boys of Silence, but there isn’t many details. Was her reign worse than Comstock’s? Hopefully, a DLC will focus on Columbia during Elizabeth’s rise to power.
Booker and the Vox
After opening a tear, Booker and Elizabeth find themselves in a universe where he’s the hero of the Vox. This Booker apparently sacrificed himself for Daisy’s cause. Just like with Fink, this plot is mostly told through Voxophones. Of course, once the Vox see a very much alive Booker running around, they try to kill him for being a pretender. For a DLC, it would be great to explore exactly how Booker went from reluctantly helping the Vox to being their savior.
There are plenty of other directions the DLC in BioShock Infinite can take, like including more about Lady Comstock or the Luteces. They can also be used to introduce new characters, as some sources suggest. As long as the DLCs build on Columbia and gives the player new insights into its secrets, it is sure to be exciting.
