BioShock will be taking a new route in it’s upcoming sky city game called BioShock Infinite. The days of undersea adventures within Rapture appear to be over. 2K Games’ BioShock Infinite takes the story to the sky, to be more precise the City of Columbia. It’s being developed by the same folks who brought us the original BioShock, Irrational Games. The game will take place in 1912 and it’s set for release in 2012. Hmm, coincidence that it’s 100 years after…
When a city among the clouds gets lost, there’s bound to be a story behind it. I give you BioShockInfinite. Here’s what we can expect from the game.
“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.”
