How to unlock Bioshock Infinite's rock hard 1999 Mode

Irrational Games made no secret of its bonus difficulty setting for the critically acclaimed Bioshock Infinite

Release Date: 27/03/2013

Irrational Games made no secret of its bonus difficulty setting for the critically acclaimed Bioshock Infinite. 1999 Mode aims to take players back to a more hardcore era, with death forcing players back to the start of whichever section they're in, and taking most of their cash for good measure. It is, not coincidentally, the year when Bioshock's predecessor System Shock 2 was released.

Bioshock creator Ken Levine even went so far as to say that the mode would have to be earned by beating the game, and certainly wouldn't be unlocked using a silly code at the menu screen.

Like most things related to Bioshock, it turns out you shouldn't believe everything you're told. 1999 Mode can be unlocked using a silly code at the menu screen - the famous Konami Code, no less.

That means pressing Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right and then B, A (or Circle, Cross on the PlayStation).

Doing so will enable you to experience the dark secrets of the flying city of Columbia at their most devilishly tricky on your first playthrough rather than doing it twice. Although, since the game is so great and so packed with story detail, you'll probably want to do it again anyway.

Bioshock Infinite is out now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
