Default BioShock: Infinite first trailer

woow that came out of nowhere.

http://www.gametrailers.com/video/de...02795?type=flv

"BioShock Infinite takes place in 1912, on top the floating city of Columbia, a steampunk-looking sky city, complete with blimps and floating balloons. Players will take the role of Booker DeWitt, a disgraced Pinkerton agent (a turn-of-the-century detective and protection agency) sent up to Columbia to rescue a girl named Elizabeth from the floating city."

It looks a bit overdone for me but might be interesting

Edit: "2K is planning the game as a 2012 release on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360"-ok nothing to see here then yet

Looks awesome. Hopefully it is as good as Bioshock.

I just hope they don't try and twist the Bioshock Universe too much. At least they didn't try and make Rapture exist in 1912.

Actually, I'm not surprised they did this. According to the special feature for the first Bioshock. They studied the early 1900, especially WWI technology for Bioshock. The splicers are modelled off early attempts at plastic surgery for soldiers disfigured by the Great War.

Didn't expect this but it does look awesome. I like steampunk enivornment going on there. A prequel to Bioshock, it's going to be interesting.

Originally conceived as a floating symbol of American ideals at a time when the United States was emerging as a world power, Columbia is dispatched to distant shores with great fanfare by a captivated public. What begins as a brand new endeavor of hope turns drastically wrong as the city soon disappears into the clouds to whereabouts unknown.

The player assumes the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, sent to the lost city to rescue Elizabeth, a young woman imprisoned there since childhood. He develops a relationship with Elizabeth, augmenting his abilities with hers so the pair may escape from a city that is literally falling from the sky. DeWitt must learn to fight foes in high-speed Sky-Line battles, engage in combat both indoors and amongst the clouds, and harness the power of dozens of new weapons and abilities.

“We are excited to expand the world of BioShock, which is one of the industry’s most critically acclaimed and beloved franchises,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “We believe that Irrational Games will lend their meticulous attention to detail and unique storytelling expertise to make BioShock Infinite an incredible entertainment experience that will immerse new and diehard fans of BioShock alike.”

With the original BioShock, Irrational Games won “Game of the Year” awards from Game Informer, IGN, G4’s X-Play, and BAFTA and redefined what players expect from a first-person shooter. “But when it came to begin work on BioShock Infinite," said Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games, "we only had one rule: No sacred cows. This game is both true to what people love about the series and unafraid to question every assumption."

Levine continued, "In order to explore the floating city of Columbia, we needed an entirely new engine. To bring Elizabeth to life, we had to build brand-new animation and AI systems. To create wide-ranging indoor and outdoor firefights at 30,000 feet, we had to rethink, rebuild and expand the BioShock arsenal. The only thing gamers can be certain of is this: the rules of the BioShock universe are about to change."
