A while back we shed light on Irrational Gamesâ€™ clever marketing strategy; letting people vote on Facebook for what content they wanted to see in a future, much eagerly awaited trailer. And now itâ€™s hereâ€¦
And wow, they did NOT disappoint. The trailer showcases snippets of story, more sky rail action, and weapons but most notably your struggle to keep your in-game companion out of harms reach, Elizabeth. Going by this video, she doesnâ€™t seem too much of a â€˜damsel in distressâ€™ but more of a â€˜bitch that ainâ€™t gonna take shit from no oneâ€™. Her involvement in battle proves this.
Irrational Games have gone all out to show the public that this is no walk in the park either. Thereâ€™s some bad ass bad guys shown here, many of them Big Daddy-esque that look like they wonâ€™t be going down without a â€˜Vigorâ€™ (Infinitesâ€™ version of the Plasmid) induced fight. Talking of these new found Vigors, we can see that at least the electricity and the fire attacks will be at our fingertips (quite literally) once again â€“ a welcome return for the fans of the previous two games.
We also get a good look at Columbia, a city that is vast, bright and teaming with life. It also floats high in the sky. It even hosts a beach that would make for a great setting for a violent encounter with the gamesâ€™ enemies. Like previous trailers, weâ€™ve learned that youâ€™ll be getting around this huge sky-bound playground by jumping onto rails with your Sky-hook - a nifty mechanism that also doubles up as a nasty weapon. The setting looks fantastic and we canâ€™t wait to discover every inch.
Just when you think thereâ€™s nothing else to see, weâ€™re treated to a close-up look at what seems to be the Special Edition. Bundled with an awesome looking model of the â€˜Song Birdâ€™ and a healthy amount of DLC (. This will be a great addition to your mantelpiece/geek shelf especially if youâ€™ve got the Big Daddy figurine from the original Bioshock.
All in all Bioshock: Infinite whilst not being a direct sequel/prequel to the popular series, is certainly shaping up to be a great vintage looking first-person shooter and with every bit of info that is drip fed from Irrational Gamesâ€™ secretive hands, weâ€™re more and more confident that this will be the best of the bunch.
