Did you have any luck viewing the BioShock Infinite trailer at WhatIsIcarus.com yesterday? Yeah, me neither. Thankfully, Irrational has released it to the media and you can view the trailer right here:
The sky high sequel has been given a 2012 release date and Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games, is very excited to tell the tale of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth's escape from the floating city of Columbia: "[W]hen it came to begin work on BioShock Infinite, 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."
BioShock Infinite will be published by 2K Games and is in development on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
