'BioShock: Infinite' DLC to add a new A.I. companion

StickSkills.com writes, "Bioshock Infinite’s DLC plans are absolutely fascinating to me. A game who’s narrative is a complete story, without much room for expansion, will be getting new story driven DLC. I just don’t know where the story will go. But thanks to a LinkedIn post pointed at by Twitter user @supererogatory, we have a clue as to where things can go." (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

No matter what, this new companion won't be as memorable as Elizabeth.

I'm 90% on board with you. There's a chance they could do something incredibly memorable in a side-story, but Elizabeth was fantastic.

I think the problem is that we've been shown Elizabeth for so long, but this new character will have little meaning to us in so short time.

My thoughts exactly. It could be a great character, but the allure of Elizabeth is the time invested with her.

Great point. What if the DLC is 6-8 hours and you're able to experience a similarly great adventure.. would that still not be enough?

Not disagreeing here, just trying to see what it would ultimately take.

Levine says first dlc is a love letter to fans. A new AI character for a side story would not be this. But, going to rapture with an AI companion or having a little sister as an AI companion might be. I can't wait. I thought this article was saying they were looking for someone which would mean they hadn't started but its in the past so that's good.

I thought the same thing at first, then thought well you never know with Irrational.. they could surprise me like they usually do.

Elizabeth at one point of production was a boy, not sure about the age, but that idea got scraped for 'Disney princess' Elizabeth. Anyone else think this boy might wind up being packaged as the DLC on some kind off side campaign?

big daddy?

little sister?

They say it's a love letter to fans, so to me that's either Rapture, Infinite prequel story, or both.

Try these mini theories on for size:

You play as Comstock in the many years Booker is wallowing in guilt and self-pity, before he arrives in Columbia.

You learn more about Elizabeth's past growing up in Columbia. You learn about the intriguing Lady Comstock. You interact with Songbird, learn about his creation. Perhaps back story to how Fink found the designs to build him (tear into Rapture and Big Daddy).

You learn more about Staltonstall - the politician from the early trailer - as a character. He was only very briefly touched upon in the game.

You play as Vox-Booker, during the uprising.

I could be wrong, but there's so much potential here. They could even go a step further and integrate Infinite's history with Andrew Ryan's/Rapture.

what is happening with the last guardian

Do you think e-p-ayeaH knows the answer to that?

Two characters that are given exposition in the main story, but are not fleshed out are Vivian Monroe and Preston Downs. Maybe (just throwing out random theories) it might be DLC that has Downs and the little Indian boy and how his relationship with that boy led him to siding with the Vox.

Just don't let A.I get in front of us during crossfire and i'll be happy.

LEAVE ME ALONE!! I'm in a gun battle woman!

Let's just hope it's another memorable character like Elizabeth, I think Irrational games can pull it off.
