The online game, which is becoming developed for the Xbox 360, the PlayStation3, and Games for Windows, is expected to hit stores sometime in 2012.
The video game is set in 1912 where a man is on a mission to rescue a lady from Columbia, a city inside sky.
A trailer for "BioShock Infinite" transported users to Columbia, in which we assume the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, and need to rescue Elizabeth, a young female imprisoned there because childhood. From a first individual point of view, we see that DeWitt is getting brutally attacked by a Massive Daddy. He is soon thrown from his sanctuary within the sky and begins to fall. A lady saves him briefly, but not just before she is grabbed by the rebellious Big Daddy.
"In order to explore the floating city of Columbia, we needed an completely new engine. To bring Elizabeth to life, we had to build brand-new animation and AI systems," Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Video games, said in a statement. "To develop wide-ranging indoor and outdoor firefights at 30,000 feet, we needed to rethink, rebuild, and expand the BioShock arsenal. The only point gamers can be specific of is this: the rules with the BioShock universe are about to change."
