2K Games has released three new screens for BioShock Infinite, the upcoming first-person shooter video game and the third installment in the BioShock series that's currently in development at Irrational Games.
Set in 1912, the upcoming title will feature main protagonist Booker DeWitt, a former Pinkerton agent who joins forces with Elizabeth, a captive of the floating air-city of Columbia. Together, the two characters will attempt to escape Columbia with the help of an arsenal of new weapons and abilities in a game that combines the classic role-playing elements of the original BioShock games with a new gameplay system that takes advantage Columbia city's unique Skyline rollercoaster-like railway system.
BioShock® Infinite is a first-person shooter like you’ve never seen. Just ask the judges from E3 2011, where the Irrational Games title won over 75 editorial awards, including the Game Critics Awards’ Best of Show. Set in 1912, players assume the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, sent to the flying city of Columbia on a rescue mission. His target? Elizabeth, imprisoned since childhood. During their daring escape, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond -- one that lets Booker augment his own abilities with her world-altering control over the environment. Together, they fight from high-speed Sky-Lines, in the streets and houses of Columbia, on giant zeppelins, and in the clouds, all while learning to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, and immersing players in a story that is not only steeped in profound thrills and surprises, but also invests its characters with what IGN called “Emotional ties (that) will continue to set the bar in gaming.”
BioShock Infinite will arrive for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC platforms on March 26th, 2013 (North America) and March 29th (Everywhere else).
