Get Ready to Own the Sky: BioShock Infinite Launches with a Trailer
Publisher 2K Games has celebrated the launch of the hotly anticipated BioShock Infinite with a high-flying launch trailer.
“Today’s the day we’ve been looking forward to. Our redefinition of BioShock is ready to be delivered from our hands to those of gamers around the world. We believe Infinite is very much a BioShock experience, but at the same time something very fresh that both fans of the original and newcomers to the series will be able to enjoy.” — Ken Levine, creative director and co-founder of Irrational Games.
The game stars gun-for-hire Booker DeWitt, who is charged with rescuing a girl named Elizabeth from the steel talons of the Songbird, her monstrous keeper.
Together they are faced against a wide range of varying enemies as DeWitt flies through the air on the Sky-Line, while Elizabeth supports him with her mysterious powers.
Against the odds, they try to escape the floating city of Columbia.
“2K and Irrational Games are committed to bringing players experiences they cannot find anywhere else. From the crumbling city of Rapture to the clear skies of Columbia, we’re proud to help Irrational Games bring their unique vision to players around the world.” — Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K.
BioShock Infinite is available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
