The lights are on
Desperately clinging to power in the face of a populist uprising and struggling to win the ideological war over the identity of Columbia, the ultranationalists have created an aggressive propaganda campaign to sway citizens to its cause and warn those who stand against them. The messages boldly villianize citizens from less than Aryan backgrounds, call for citizens to question the purity of their neighbors, and even encourage children to take up arms for their cause. These antagonistic advertisements will be found throughout the city in the sky.
Check out the divisive campaign yourself in this exclusive gallery.

This is so awesome. I like how Irrational focuses on every detail of their games, it really heightens the experience.
Wow these are great, they are disturbingly similar to early 1900's US Imperialist/Nationalist propaganda, although I know a couple of those are photo shopped versions of the original (I know for a fact that the one with Boy Scout was used in both WWI and WWII). It seems the team has a real good sense of the time period and the whole US

this is gonna be one hell of a game :)
Cool. We were just learning about the Patriots and the American Revolution in my history class.
These posters are pretty *** amazing, I'm sure Ken Levine and Irrational will deliver a GREAT game :)
I love how politically incorrect these are, pretty bold statement.
Very cool use of our own history again, like the magazine covers.
Hey, Norman Rockwell! Awesome.
Creeeepy. Though in a thoroughly awesome way. =D No joke, Bioshock is the only FPS I play with any sense of regularity, and Infinite looks like it's just going to blow the first two out of the water! =D
No pun intended. =P
I really love the artistic feel of Bioshock: Infinite. The final piece of propaganda is by the far the most disturbing. A George Washington-ese figure holding the Tenn Commandments and the Liberty Bell shining brightly against the "dirty" lower races.
I really want to play this game to explore these political ideas and the overall view of social justice.
I can't wait! These posters reflect and expand on an isolationist American time period not normally represented in the media. Hopefully no one takes this stuff literally and cries to sensational news channels about the promotion of discrimination. HLN, I've got my eye on you :P
It's not loading for me... :(
wow, all of these are just remarkable.
these posters remind me of the fallout 3 posters.
controversial pix lol. The team always goes about and beyond in the storyline, like a alter reality in american hystory, wat ifs*
That second pic was totally a British propoganda poster from World War I. "What did YOU do in the Great War, daddy?"
That's awesome. I'm intrigued to play this game and to see how much of a freaking awesome aesthetic Irrational has made for this game.
