BioShock Infinite Ringtones

by on April 26 2013

100 comments

The audio team at Irrational is an inspiring crew, creating emotions and subtle tones out of thin air. While many of our fans have heard some of the iconic songs, there’s also a number of reoccurring tones and themes that occur via specific actions in-game. Since BioShock Infinite‘s release, we’ve seen much praise from our fans regarding the soundtrack and subtle interludes, but one request has been popping up time and time again, and we’re here to deliver with a few custom ringtones taken straight from the game. Inside the downloadable .zip below, you’ll find the following five tones:

  • Songbird Tune
  • Songbird Call
  • Lovers Inflamed
  • Value Appreciation
  • Salt Machine Tone

Download .MP3 pack here (For Android and other devices)
Download .M4R pack here (For iOS devices)

We also have two more ringtones available exclusively via Major Nelson:

  • Step On Up
  • New Objective

We’re looking at potentially creating another batch of these as well, so if you have any specific requests, post a comment below and let us know. Please note that we generally cannot use specific songs from the game or in-game voices for ringtones.

    Perhaps the songbird noise as a notification?

    Elizabeth saying “Here take this!” or one of her lines from giving Booker items would make an awesome ringtone. At least text tone.

    What about one with Robert Lutece saying “Pick up the phone, and wipe away the debt.” ?

    The tone “new objective” sounds slightly wrong, they can upload it with better quality?

    3) A Dimwit and Duke audio clip
    4) Tear opening/closing snippet
    5) Boy of Silence sounding off…

      I second all of these and add:
      1) Drinking or using vigors
      2) Coin toss
      3) Songbird’s various screeches

      Thanks Irrational!

    How about the clicking noise the Skyhook makes when jumping between Sky-Lines? Or the noise made when Booker opens a new vigor?

    The tune that plays when you charge the power conduits with Shock Jockey would be perfect as a text tone!

    Skyhook, The Zeppelin horn/honk sound, maybe a few Vigor sounds, like the sound you get when using possession on turrets & vendors, and the Piano stingers from exploding heads & skyhook executions

    I second Zeppelin, new vigor opens, charging power conduits via Shock Jockey and something Boy of Silence. There are some other good ideas, but remember what they said about using specific songs and/or in-game voices. Some things they can’t distribute as ringtones due to licensing issues and prior agreements with voice talent.

    I’m surprised more studios don’t put out ringtones like this. Not a lot of game sound design is so good as BioShock Infinite’s, but there are definitely some and those sound effects would make great ring and text tones.

    Kinda surprised no one’s mentioned it yet but the sound of Elizabeth tossing you money (or ammo, or health or salts) is one of the most satisfying thing in the game and would be a great text tone on it’s own.

    I’m voting for a sound from the ammo machine, when it says “Dangerous times, dangerous measures, protect your women and your treasures” — I laughed every time I heard that!

    The startup noise of the Voxophone sounded cool.

    Also – seconding the sound when you catch a coin from Elizabeth.

    Would really like an instrumental ringtone of the musical piece during the fresh hair ad from Bioshock 1; it’s memorable because it plays on the title screen for a bit and fades out, but it never got released on a soundtrack. :/

    Please Oh, Please, the fog horn sequence between the lighthouse and columbia, i think that would make an awesome ringtone or an alarm to wake up to.

    Seconding the request for the Shock Jockey bells and the lighthouse foghorns (maybe the lighthouse bells as well?)

    I’ve been so distracted lately – I’m trying to force myself to remember anything not covered here which would also work with the fact you can’t use some songs and voices… But all I came up with was the Vox singing at Shantytown…. Dang.

    How about some shorter tones that could be assigned to text message, email and other alert notifications? Perhaps a Vigor themed pack? I was thinking of all 8 sounds that you hear when equiping/selecting a vigor.

    It would be pretty sweet to hear the intense sound you get from selecting Bucking Bronco any time that you recieve a text message. Or the flapping of wings you hear when selecting Murder of Crows, or the sound from Undertow, etc. etc.

    Side note: As a ringtone, I too favor the idea of the chime song that plays whenever you power something up with Shock Jockey.

    Could you possibly get a sound clip from the end of the song that is used when fighting enemies? The little notification at the end of the song to indicate that the enemies have been cleared?

    Thanks :)

    The two tone sound that plays every time your objective is updated would make a great ringtone for texts or notifications.

    I cant seem to move the ringtones to my iphone 5. Its in the .m4r format. For some reason it won’t let me do it unless I sync my phone, which will delete everything i have on it. Any suggestions?

    I think one of Elizabeth saying ”Booker, Look Out!” like in the commercial with the Handyman. And Smother, Smother, Smother, and even one with a bunch of Elizabeth quotes. :) Thanks for this first round of ringtones! they’re awesome!

    I’d love some of the anachronistic songs as ringtones, plus the things the Handyman says as notifications. These are a great start, thanks Irrational!

    Also, thanks for including St. James Infirmary in the game, my favorite Dixieland tune ever, I almost cried for joy when I heard it.

    “I appreciate a lady who appreciates value!”
