Irrational Games has announced “BioShock Infinite”, the 3rd installment of the first person shooter series BioShock. Set in 1912, BioShock Infinite takes place in the sky city of Columbia (previously BioShock was in an underwater setting).
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.
Irrational Games co-founder and creative director Ken Levine gives some insight on this new direction for BioShock.
