BioShock Infinite Gameplay

Irrational Games gives us a look at the gameplay in BioShock Infinite.

Watch Video

Can't wait for this,

A part of me really wonders how the controls work for some of these maneuvers.

Still looking forward to this proper sequel to Bioshock I.

I am LOVING this so far.

I'm just hoping they can deliver on the hype they're building.

I'm sorry but I still don't buy this being "actual" gameplay.

Everything feels way to scripted.

Wow...this was a visual feast.

Don't know about getting it but I'll be sure to at least watch a let's play of this, it's really nice.
I also love the steampunk city, I think they made a bold choice to move it from the bottom of the ocean to the sky.

Oh my.

This is most interesting. And promising.

One thing that strikes me is that it's a bit hard to tell what is gameplay and what is cutscene. For example, the part where the crazy politician starts yelling at the player. Is that in gameplay? Could the player just shoot him in the face and consequently miss the whole cannon sequence? Same goes for the part with the handyman on the bridge. Would he still have fallen if the player wasn't blasting away at him?

Also, I like the flying big daddy. It harkens back to the original Bioshock but at the same time is appropriate to the new setting. Nice.

Lastly, for better or for worse... cleavage.

Wow.

I'm quite interested as to what the hell is going in Columbia.

Holy crap, that was intense! I definitely can't wait until this comes out now!

That bird plasmid is awesome, just sayin'.

I kind of hope it's less purely scripted events than that, if you know what I mean. Still, looks fucking awesome, they seem to have nailed the setting.

Looks great so far! I anticipate more from it son - Really sense a diferent approach whichis fantastic

That was remarkably awesome.

Casual Shinji:

Agreed, There is a few things that hint at gameplay but that's not enough for me.
Other than that, it looks awesome. As for Columbia, as long as it has tons of secrets and mystery like Rapture did, which it looks like it totally does. I'm pumped.

Take my money now! Gimme Gimme Gimme!

I really like the aesthetic they've got going on. I'm unsure how I feel about the protagonist being more talkative though.

This is the game that will buy me an x-box

I KNOW THAT VOICE! It's Garrett! I don't know why, but that makes me very happy.

And this looks to be amazing: even if that did have the feel of a scripted sequence, if they can come anywhere close to that, it could be one of the all-time great games. (I particularly liked the banter. I'm getting tired of the whole 'voiceless protagonist' shtick that everyone seems to be doing these days.)

Telekinesis actually useful and amazing? Sold.
But like other people said, hard to tell what is and what isn't gameplay... which worries me a bit.
Also I'm not a huge fan of the morality system that's going to revolve in part around whether or not you make use of the girl. I know I'm going to feel guilty when I use her powers because she's going to cry out in pain after it.

Agreed on the highly scripted part.

But yes, it looks pretty good.

saw this yesterday! VERY scripted, because character seemed to be standing in Just the right place to have the best effect when a cutscene kicked in. also i couldnt see half of what was going on, but he seemed to be running to the right place anyway
i like the way that the plasmids or whatever they are now are air related now! lightning, as usual, but i hope blasting clouds will prove to be a usual tactic! i especially like the crows as a distration.
i always like the charaterisation in bioshocks, the character always seems to be a person rather then just an armoured suit with bioshock 2 obviously.

I LOVE the new setting. Rapture was great, but I didn't rush out to pick up the sequel because it looked like more of the same. (I still want to play it at some point) But I may have to pick this one up on day 1.

Holy....

If that actually is real gameplay, since it did look a bit scripted, then that is FUCKING AWESOME.

If not, then hey I'm not surprised....ah well.

When the gun was picked up and he turned around with...murder? In his eyes...that was creeeeepy.

Drool... That looks awesome.

As has been said, though, one wonders about the degree of scripting. More to the point, one wonders if they can make scripting that doesn't endanger the player's feeling of empowerment and isn't easy to "break" through unexpected player actions. It's one thing to play a game that "feels like a movie", and another to play one that makes the player feel they never have any more choices than a character whose script is already written.

I'm surprised no one has talked about the most interesting and prominant feature in this new game; Cleavage.

Okay, normally I don't go for hype but HOLY TROMBONE PANCAKES ON A POGO STICK THAT WAS AWESOME!

If this delivers as it promises I'm buying the special edition without question. The replacements for the Big Daddies are... interesting, to say the least. I just hope they're not Big Daddies, because I've always been a firm believer in the idea that all masked protagonists and antagonists should STAY masked. Judge Dredd, Master Chief and even Subject Delta are a lot cooler and mysterious with their masks than without, so don't go spoiling things now.

I think it's easiest to compare what the video is to the first video we got for the original bioshock. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lmw78t8NgIE It clearly isn't actual gameplay but it does provide a pretty in depth idea of what the gameplay may be like.

Yeah, that really looks awesome. That big thing in the end looks though as hell, too.

Really curious how they're going to explain plasmid in THIS one.

Also, Elizabeth's "burning hot metal ball thing" attack was supremely awesome. Wonder if we could do that in the game.

Heh, "You don't look so good" Yea, right....

PS: Who wants to bet that using Elizabeth's powers, but weakening her health is going to be this game's moral choice?

Dragonizer:
Holy crap, that was intense! I definitely can't wait until this comes out now!

That bird plasmid is awesome, just sayin'.

I loved the bee plasmid and the birds look like a stronger version of it when I use it I will say it's Russell and friends.

the original big daddies are very effective because they weren't your enemy they are there to fix the city and stop a seven year old girl from getting kid napped and killed while the handymen look like they will just be enemies also the handymen look like they will be quite frankly unkillable (the handyman in the video fell off the bridge he didn't die) meaning you will either have to run away, making chase something else or something along the lines of freezing him or knocking him unconscious which could be just in great effect for atmosphere and intensity.

As for being scripted; remember the intro of the first one was playable, but still extremely scripted, and was it awesome? Hell yes.

I wasn't going to say anything, but I noticed the voice too. Good choice for a voice actor.

Legitimate gameplay or not, that was unbelievably cool. I may just have a new contender for my favorite trailer.

I came.

A game where you hook onto rails to ride across floating cities and shoot birds out of your hand to fight armies of lunatics. I think we've just achieved a new standard for "Totally fucking awesome".

"That's just making it angry!"

"IT'S ALREADY ANGRY!"

Genuinely evoked laughter from me. Nice.

This looks freakin' incredible, I've got to be honest. Tryin' not to get too hyped though, don't want to be disappointed.

Two words: Holy (bleeep). This is going to be awesome.
