Ever since Irrational Games announced that its
downloadable content would take place in Rapture, fans have speculated about how the worlds in the BioShock franchise could be connected. As we get ever closer to
the release of Burial At Sea Episode 2
, a new, very spoilery video starts to hint at answers—while showing off a whole host of returning characters from both Rapture and Columbia.
Seriously, spoilers ahead. You've been warned.
, billed as a "behind the scenes" look at Episode 2, shows the sheer number of characters—and returning voice actors—we can look forward to. Courtnee Draper returns as Elizabeth, this time as the lead protagonist that players will control. Troy Baker is also back, as Infinite anti-hero Booker DeWitt. But many of the original actors from BioShock 1 will return as well, which means you can expect to see Andrew Ryan and Atlas in your adventures through Rapture.
Most interestingly, actress Kimberly Brooks will return in Episode Two as BioShock Infinite's Daisy Fitzroy. How Fitzroy makes it from Columbia's reality to Rapture isn't shown, but it's big news that she factors into the game.
We also get our first glimpse of the first-person view for Elizabeth, specifically in a shot of her watching an Andrew Ryan video while holding a pistol.
Irrational Creative Director Ken Levine says at the end of the video that fans will feel a "sense of completeness" at the end of Episode 2. Will this be the end of the BioShock story? We'll have to wait until
, when Episode 2 of Burial at Sea is available, before we can know for sure.
