The lights are on
Irrational Games has released the official launch trailer for BioShock Infinite, which showcases the eerie, floating world of Columbia and Booker Dewitt's attempted rescue mission from Hell.
Set within a whole new narrative in the year 1912, BioShock Infinite tells the story of Booker DeWitt as he is sent to the floating city of Columbia to find a woman named Elizabeth. Elizabeth has been held as a prisoner in Columbia for 12 years and it's Dewitt's job to rescue her. But such a dangerous task comes with complications, and Elizabeth holds secret powers that the nativists, elite founders, and rebel group Vox Populi refuse to let go of.
The launch trailer sneaks a couple peeks at Elizabeth’s powers, which open rifts in the time-space continuum as her and Dewitt work to escape Columbia and all of their treacherous pursuers.
It’s been over three years since the release of BioShock 2, and players have been eagerly awaiting the imaginative new setting and characters that Irrational has been working on.
