The lights are on
Now that our October cover has been unveiled, it's time to get a better look at BioShock Infinite with these three exclusive screenshots. The images showcase the outdoor environments of Columbia, from the war-torn streets to a park with an idyllic gazebo. Columbia's visual style is a departure from the underwater corridors of Rapture, and this is an intentional shift in direction. If the original BioShock's artistic vibe could be summed up as "New Year's Eve, 1959," the phrase that the team at Irrational uses to describe Infinite is "Fourth of July, 1912."
You don't need to take my word for it, though. Judge for yourself by clicking on the images below to see the full-sized screens.
Be sure to pick up a copy of the latest issue to see even more exclusive images, including an in-game shot of the 30-foot behemoth chasing after Elizabeth and Booker. Also, don't forget to check out our BioShock Infinite hub all month for even more in-depth info!

This game is going to be so good. Ugh, it's so far away.......
These look great. Bioshock really outdoes itself with it's artwork.
I cant wait to play this game!
this game looks just incredible! what a unique art direction
These screens are great.
these screens are the finest of anything!!!!! go bioshock
I'm sure it will be awesome, but it looks like the game will be dated by the time it comes out.
when will it come out!!!!! i have to known
Beatiful screens. Can't wait for this issue to come in the mail and I'm definitely looking forward to the game.
the game looks great just a few concerns the game has flawless artwork, a demo and gameplay so why the hell do we have to wait two years for this crap when the game looks like it ready to come out today 2012 what were they thinking the world may have ended by then lol jkjk
That big daddy thing gives me the chills for some reason
I've never felt the need to play any of the bioshocks.....the story seems like it sucks.
Why do you torment us? Why?????
I wonder,do the three games have an overarching storyline, or can I just jump into this third one without doing the previous two or play just the first and third?
I really like the artistic direction they're taking with this one
I've played bioshock 1, so if it's the same guys who made that one, it's gonna be frikin sweet!
Glad they changed setting but the bright, almost cartoonish feel makes me worry a bit.
SO MUCH BLOOM!! I can't even see the pictures through all that bloom! It's like staring at a flashlight or something!
