Set in 1912, BioShock Infinite introduces an entirely new narrative and gameplay experience that lifts players out of the familiar confines of Rapture and rockets them to Columbia, an immense city in the sky.
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.
Once you look at the trailer you’ll start to realize what an amazing world they’ve created. It’s completely the opposite of Rapture; which was dark and claustrophobic as opposed to Columbia which is bright, roomy and airy…but still manages to create the environment of discomfort and fear. Also what’s interesting is the events of this game take place before that of BioShock 1 and 2; which means we’re in for a ‘past creation’ and possibly a BioShock 3 in the near future.
Although we’re almost 16-18 months away from playing the game, I’ve got such a good feeling about this game! Coming on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. However, if you’re on a PC, you’d better start stashing away a few bucks every month for an upgrade 🙂
