After almost three years of silence, Irrational Games has announced its newest product: Bioshock Infinite.
He 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.There are plenty of similarities between Infinite and the older titles. For one, Booker can obtain powers from the land and use them to fight off foes, ranging from deranged Colombians to Big Daddy-like beings called "Alphas." However, Levine has made it known that this is not just Bioshock in the sky; the game appears to have a much more open nature, along with increased potential cooperative action.
The game is still a ways off, despite the large announcement; 2K games and Irrational have the title listed as a 2012 release for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Whether the systems are still being heavily pushed then remains to be seen, but who knows what the industry is going to look like next year, let alone 2012.
Irrational Games contains the original team behind Bioshock, the first-person-shooter adventure-horror taking place in the underwater dystopia Rapture. 2K Marin, the team behind its sequel which released earlier this year, is now currently working on XCOM, a first-person-shooter involving a unique, alien menace attacking humanity.
