The lights are on
Irrational Games recently revealed BioShock Infinite, but what you already know about the game is just the beginning. Our exclusive cover story is packed with new info about Columbia, protagonist Booker DeWitt, his companion Elizabeth, and the monstrous titan that rules the sky above the city. Our BioShock Infinite covers, which were just unveiled onstage at PAX, are a significant departure from our normal look. Instead of using our traditional layout, we worked with artists at Irraional Games to produce covers that showcase what a video game magazine might have looked like on Columbia in the early 1900s. With illustrations inspired by period publications like The Saturday Evening Post, all three covers also feature unique advertisement for products a citizen of Columbia might need. You can also look forward to several other cool features, including four pages on Call of Duty: Black Ops' multiplayer, an analysis of the gaming industry's upcoming Supreme Court battle, and in-depth impressions of Move and Kinect. This issue also features previews of Fallout: New Vegas and Dead Space 2, along with a review of a little game called Halo: Reach.Click the images below to see high-res versions of all three covers below, and come back throughout the month to visit our BioShock Infinite hub, where you'll find even more exclusive details on Irrational Games' upcoming project.

BEST ISSUE EVER!!! Literaly though, with Halo:Reach Review it will be epic.
These covers are amazing!
Unbelievable. Your cover art is truly top of the line among any magazine I know.
Wow, What can you possibly tell us about Bioshock Infinite? THE *** GAME DOESN'T COME OUT TILL 2012. Too early.
totally freaking awesome.
Ok, every month you guys just keep outdoing your previous covers, and I love how there are multiple covers! GI rulz! =D
Can you guys please send me all 3 covers?
"Murder of Crows." Ha, ha.
But anyway, the designs look great. It was a good idea to do them like that.
That some awesome print there!

Beautiful covers. Would love to see this creativity continue in the future.
Cannot wait to get my issue.
I love you guys
FAINTS IN AWE
This is the best GI cover ever. I wonder which one of the three covers I'll be receiving in the mail, and with all the other stuff you're putting into Octobers issue it's going to be one of your best.
both bioshock sucked
I was at the panel at ! Had a great time totally worth coming all the way from NYC !
Glad to see that I didn't resubscribe to GameInformer. I'm actually starting to post more on vgchartz.com. Unbiased articles, unbiased players, sound good to me.
This game comes out 2012, the first and second game sold a combined 5.33 million, yes, all combined, and you have this on your cover why? Cause Reach and Black Ops just aren't exciting enough these days, you gotta print something people will have no idea about!!!
Omg it's so beautiful.
