1998 Mode is a game mode in the BioShock Infinite downloadable content Burial at Sea - Episode 2. 1998 Mode focuses on stealth gameplay.

Burial at Sea - Episode 2[edit | edit source]

The challenge is to complete the entire episode using only non-lethal methods. The mode restricts the weapon selection to the Crossbow and the Air Grabber. The Plasmid selection is the same, except for Possession, which will affect the enemies but they will continue as normal (except for when the right upgrade is added).

Behind the Scenes[edit | edit source]

  • Much like how 1999 Mode was a reference to System Shock 2, its name a reference to the game's release year, 1998 Mode is a reference to the game Thief: The Dark Project, a stealth-based game released in 1998 by Looking Glass Studios, the company which also developed System Shock 2 and whose members would go on to be a part of Irrational Games. The art (and Elizabeth's attire) are a reference to the game's cover and protagonist.
  • Taffer's Delight, the Achievement/Trophy unlocked for finishing 1998 mode, is also a reference to the Thief series as "taffer" is a common insult heard in all its games.
