BioShock Infinite DLC To Feature ‘New Companion Character’?
The first downloadable content for BioShock Infinite may feature a new AI companion. The LinkedIn resume of a senior animator at 2K Games lists work on “BioShock Infinite DLC1” including “providing animation and R&D for a new AI companion character.”
The resume also mentions that the animator “learned the custom pipeline used by Irrational Games and provided all animation planning and management for the project” as well as a collaboration with 2K Australia for “managing outsource animation” and the “cataloging of existing BioShock animation assets and custom UDK implementation.”
While no specific name or concrete information is provided in the resume, this is our first hint that BioShock Infinite’s DLC could feature characters other than Booker and Elizabeth. Shortly before the game’s release, Irrational announced a Season Pass that will include three pieces of content for BioShock Infinite. So far, no specific release date or other information has been officially revealed.
We’ve reached out to Irrational and will update this story with any comment we receive.
Thanks to superannuation for the heads up.
