There might be a 'thing' there. Finally of course would be the first game, Bioshock which tells the story of Ratures final demise and purging. I played BioShock, then Infinite (haven't played the dlc for it yet), then went back and played BioShock2. yeah but your loosing the wondering, the second guessing the excitment of thinking you know the story and then realizing you were wrong.knowing the whole story isn't always a good thing. The order of the games should be played, Infinite; which provides more substence and added detail to the later games.

Bioshock 1 => Bioshock 2 => Minerva's Den => Bioshock Infinite => Burial at Sea Ep1&2. Just my 2 cents. Moreover, the DLC button in menu is unavailable. I Disagree completely with all these opinions and have substence behind my argument. Just got the DLCs, and I was wondering what the correct order is. So I started with clash in the clouds, simply because its the first dlc that was released. Well i started off with Bioshock Infinite (without the DLC's though) and only later played Bioshock 1 and 2. The order Sovereign mentioned is definitely the best order, but if you want to try something else chronological order is also an option. All trademarks are property of their respective owners in the US and other countries. I'm i doing something wrong? just the way you listed them.there all amazing games.you'll want the full story before you get to infinite. All rights reserved. I've started playing and i got no DLC promised from IndustrialRevolution! I recommend playing in the order you listed, but It doesn't matter, they're all great games in their own rights. Pretty sure chronological order goes Infinite => Burial at Sea => Bioshock => Bioshock 2 (and I believe Minerva's Den comes right after Bioshock 2, but not sure). If this is your first time playing through the games though, definitely go with Sovereign's order. Read up on the development history of these games if you are curious. Next up would be the two burial at sea installments; so far there are only two but they explain the birth and distortion of rapture. I played all three games like 5 years ago and want to replay them. Downloadable content (DLC), also called add-ons, expansions, or patches, are additional content created for games and released separately from their main release. © Valve Corporation.

I'd say the order they were released in is best, but Infinite, 1, 2, Infinite DLC's works as well. © Valve Corporation. I'm pretty sure 2 was developed by a different studio. Have fun. it not only predates the first game but allows a more in-depth story for the first Bioshock by aloowing you to understand the role of the Big Daddys even more. Well i started off with Bioshock Infinite (without the DLC's though) and only later played Bioshock 1 and 2. All rights reserved. Any other order will spoil certain aspects of the game, and with a masterpiece of storytelling like the Bioshock series, having ANYTHING spoiled is just a travesty. Thanks. Bioshock is my favorite series. 9 comments. This is how they were intended. I want to replay them as well, so what order should I go for? The order Sovereign mentioned is definitely the best order, but if you want to try something else chronological order is also an option. If you play Bioshock 1 before it, 2 may be a bit of a letdown. I'd say the order they were released in is best, but Infinite, 1, 2, Infinite DLC's works as well. Cant go wrong playing them in order of release. Again, all good games. Should i also play 2 before or could i wait with that until after i finished burial at sea? I'd say play Bioshock 2 first, because it's the weakest installment, although still amazing. Can't go wrong with the original order either. Right after Infinite? Español - Latinoamérica (Spanish - Latin America), http://bioshock.wikia.com/wiki/Rapture_Storyline. Including all three games and Minerva's Den. So should I opt for the order Sovereign had proposed? In which order should I play DLC? It works since Infinite is relatively independent when it comes to the storyline, there's only a bit at the end you'll be able to properly appreciate once you played the other two games. In February 2013, 2K Games announced that a season pass would be offered for BioShock Infinite downloadable content (DLC). Should i play burial at sea first or not? Edit: so everyone is telling me to play 1 first, which ill definately do. Next in line would be Bioshock 2, this game tells the story of the fall of rapture and your part in it from the perspective of a Big Daddy. Then just play 1 then Infinite. What's the best place for Clash in the Clouds though? Note: This is ONLY to be used to report spam, advertising, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts. OK I have Bioshock, Bioshock 2 and Infinate and the DLC, I read this here somewhere but cannot find again. Español - Latinoamérica (Spanish - Latin America). I had fun and got the story. Chronologically it comes first in the story, but play them in the order of release, 1, 2, Minerva's Den, Infinite, BaS1, BaS2.

Pretty sure chronological order goes Infinite => Burial at Sea => Bioshock => Bioshock 2 (and I believe Minerva's Den comes right after Bioshock 2, but not sure). However, its more minigames instead of story. Do not start with infinite. Do NOT play Infinite first, though.
