hey bastards! For those of you who are into the Bioshock video game franchise, you’re going to rub your nipples in excitement. Here is the first full ten minutes of BioShock Infinite with gameplay footage.
Set in 1912, BioShock Infinite takes place in the sky city of Columbia (previously BioShock was in an underwater setting).
Former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt has been sent to rescue Elizabeth, a young woman imprisoned in Columbia since childhood. Booker develops a relationship with Elizabeth, augmenting his abilities with hers so the pair may escape from a city that is literally falling from the sky. DeWitt must learn to fight foes in high-speed Sky-Line battles, engage in combat both indoors and amongst the clouds, and harness the power of dozens of new weapons and abilities.
This looks amazing. Personally, this is what I would have wanted for Bioshock 2. Bioshock 2, while a decently executed game was just too much of more of the same. I was blown away by this footage and THAT’S what I want from a Bioshock game; originality, new imagery, an impeccable story, and a frightening experience.
The game’s coming for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 simultaneously in 2012.
