About BioShock Infinite

From the creators of the highest-rated first-person shooter of all time**, BioShock, BioShock Infinite puts players in the shoes of U.S. Cavalry veteran turned hired gun, Booker DeWitt. Indebted to the wrong people and with his life on the line, DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia. Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret.

**Based on Metacritic average ranking across available platforms.

    Sweet!! I had a feeling that episode 2 would release on March 25th, the last possible day set for the season pass. This is a good sign. It means that Irrational will be spending as much time as humanly possible to deliver the best quality DLC possible. I cannot wait! :)

    The Irony in the fact it’s releasing on March 25th is that it ships the same day that the game released on. So profound.

    In the post, there’s a new introduction to main game -”Former veteran turned hired gun” …

    Didn’t think to hear from the release date so soon. I hope there will be the “part 1 of fact from myth” (since they released part 2 already), an interview and another launch trailer. Can’t wait~

    Nobody commenting on the sweet pistol/crossbow hybrid Elizabeth’s got? From the looks of it, it might immobilize enemies or simply knock them out instead of killing them… but I wouldn’t have any complaints if it is similar to the crossbow from the original BioShock, that marvel was a very satisfying one-hit kill. Always nice having a splicer take a bolt to the face and do a bloody back-flip. Good times, good times… :D

    Early waiting for the Bioshock Infinite Season two as the earlier season was quite interesting.
