News: I guess it's good to stick with what you know.
It's after 1:45 and, as promised, the trailer for Irrational Games' next game has launched at WhatIsIcarus.com. Staying with what they know, the developer is working on another BioShock game entitled BioShock Infinite. Coming to the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 at an unannounced future date, the game is actually a prequel set in 1912:
BioShock Infinite is a first-person shooter currently in development at Irrational Games, the studio behind the original BioShock (which sold over 4 million units worldwide). Set in 1912, BioShock Infinite introduces an entirely new narrative and gameplay experience that lifts players out of the familiar confines of Rapture and rockets them to Columbia, an immense city in the sky.
Former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt has been sent to rescue Elizabeth, a young woman imprisoned in Columbia since childhood. Booker 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.
As of right now, the What Is Icarus site is being slammed by users eager to see the trailer. But if you can't in, there's a screenshot gallery showcasing zeppelins, a statue of Icarus, a steampunk-inspired floating city and a mutton-chopped American in Uncle Sam pants. There's also a downloadable 1080p version of the trailer that weighs in at 145MB.
We'll defeinitely have more on BioShock Infinite very soon.
