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.

that middle one is tight
these are awesome
Awesome!!! Looking in my mailbox right now and will be there till it comes!!! My face is already turning blue...
The First one is my favorite.
I can't wait.
At first glance I was awe-struck, but upon closer inspection of these covers they are a little less amazing. Still very cool.
My goodness. I'm probably going to pick up copies of each cover. They're all so neat. I can't wait to read up on this game. I'm so excited!
thats tight. its going to be interesting to see how they pull this game off.
Best gameinformer covers ever! I hope the game will be as amazing as these covers.
i have the top one so very cool.
AAAAGGHH!!!! these look Sweet!!!!!!!!!!
I honestly never knew that there could be such an awesome magazine. You guys are great.
i need to resubscribe!
Irrational Games does it again. Such creativity and incredible imagination used to make a game that you would only see in your dreams and all of this is made out of just one basic idea.
Okay, i work at the post office and i saw every cover available come through my section...and i had ZERO idea what game the covers were about (no peeking is a work rule). I only noticed they all had the Saturday Evening Post styled title and a creepy style (a madman's Chicago Wonders fair) to them. I had to wait until i actually read my personal copy to know which game it was. Perhaps rabid Bioshock fans figured it out.
honestly i dont like the covers that much but i know the game is gonna be sick
its so much better how its not underwater now anymore
Yeah! Cool October Cover!
Bloody hell. Brilliant covers. I want them all.
