BioShock Infinite's 1999 Mode 'not for the faint-hearted'

Format:
Gamers have been warned that BioShock Infinite

Release Date: 24/01/2012

Gamers have been warned that BioShock Infinite's newly announced 1999 Mode should be avoided by all but the most hardcore of shooter enthusiasts.

Ken Levine, creative director of developer Irrational Games, revealed to Kotaku that the hard-as-nails new mode is going to be hidden from the main menus via a code, because he does not want casual fans stumbling across it by accident.

As the name suggests, 1999 Mode harks back to an older and more punishing game design philosophy, testing players with limited health and resources, more copious game over scenarios and an emphasis on permanent choices that cannot be erased.

Mr Levine said the new difficulty setting will be tense and frustrating in a way that the average fan will "hate", but that hardcore enthusiasts will relish.

"The average gamer stops playing when they fail. The hardcore gamer says 'That's it, I'm gonna show this game who's boss'," he explained.

BioShock Infinite will hit Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC this year and is one of the most anticipated titles of 2012, having already claimed numerous awards from gaming publications based on preview versions.
