Irrational has uploaded the first five minutes of Bioshock Infinite to YouTube. It shows Booker being taken to a lighthouse by two mysterious yellow rain coat wearing characters. They leave him alone at the lighthouse wear he finds a way to Columbia.
Anna “Ormeli” Moleva is a Russian cosplayer that caught the eye of Irrational Games for her striking resemblance to Elizabeth from the upcoming Bioshock Infinite. In fact, the developer has decided to hire her to be the face of Elizabeth. Her likeness has already been featured on the back of the Bioshock Infinite box art. She will also be included in future events and a television advertisement.
The box art for Bioshock Infinite has finally been released by Irrational Games. Just like the game will surely be, the box art is dense. It shows Booker posing in behind cinders passing by. Behind him is a burning flag. The white and red stripes look American, but the blue area for stars may lead to a surprise in the game. Even further off in the distance is a Zeppelin.
The coolest thing included in the Songbird Edition of Bioshock Infinite is undoubtedly its namesake, the Songbird statue. Irrational Games has created a new video showing how much time and thought was put into the creation. Ken Levine shares his love of collectibles and describes how much detail Rob Waters put into the figure.
Welcome to my preliminary weapon profile of the Broadsider. I’m going to be covering the gun to the best of my knowledge at the current time. Stay tuned for a full weapon breakdown, including complete stats and strategies, once Bioshock Infinite releases in February 2013.
According to the Beast of America trailer, the Broadsider could be Booker’s first gun in Bioshock Infinite. The trailer shows Booker opening a box holding the pistol as he travels by boat to a lighthouse. It isn’t yet known if this scene is exclusive to pre-release footage or will actually be the opening to the game, but it’s likely that an all-purpose pistol like the Broadsider would be an introductory weapon much like the pistol in the original Bioshock.
The latest Bioshock Infinite trailer was delivered earlier this week as promised. It’s amazing not only because of its lack of dubstep, but because it shows a lot of new enemies and locations in the game. Check out the full story for the trailer and a screenshot breakdown.
