BioShock Infinite "False Shepherd" Trailer is a Killer

BioShock Infinite "False Shepherd" Trailer is a Killer

Booker Dewitt gets hit hands on some interesting weapons in the latest trailer for 2K and Irrational Games' BioShock Infinite.

After a long, long wait, BioShock Infinite will be released in less than two weeks. The latest trailer for the Irrational Games-developed title gives yet another glimpse of what players can expect when stepping into the shoes of hired gun Booker DeWitt.

Infinite removes the series from the underwater depths of Rapture, taking to the skies in the floating city of Columbia. As Booker, you're tasked with helping Elizabeth, though as Irrational puts it, "the girl he's there to rescue might turn out to be the partner he needs to survive." The video shows off Booker's abilities and Elizabeth's powers, as well as how they work together to fight the oppressive forces of Columbia. Hint: it involves violence.

BioShock Infinite will be out on March 26 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. As the trailer notes, pre-ordering the game will net you the Industrial Revolution DLC, so if you're planning on picking this up, you may want to take advantage.

Alright, that does it.

I've been sold on this thing for years now. Literally years.

So just release the damn thing you bastards.

Hit hands? Might wanna fix that :3

Omg that claw gun thing *shudder* I don't know if I should be grossed out or jumping in excitement O_o

Wow... this actually looks really awesome! They actually planned out a whole new concepts and ideas, rather then just a rehashed sequel :p

False Shepard? SO THE INDOCTRINATION THEORY WAS CORRECT!?!
Also: Why did have a Torah on his checklist at the beginning?

Irrational Games, would you kindly release the game already. It's been so long I'm worried it might be overhyped and not as awesome as they are letting on. I also wonder how sensible Booker is. He finds a bottle of strange liquid and just necks it. Silly man!

Maybe he needs to find the map, two keys, and get two cocktail swords for his drinks?

Oddly, it reminded me of the old school inventory icons. Which is why I thought of it as a map.

Yeah, yeah, another Bioshock Infinite trailer.

I'm pretty sure everyone who already wants the game was sold on it months ago, so just release the damn thing already.

Yeah I'm beyond ready. This is the only game I've been waiting to get for a really long time. 12 days left to wait... going to be the longest 12 days I've experienced in a while :(

and wow does that skyhook look brutal.

Hmmm. Pretty.

And may I just say this is a fine time to score me a free copy of XCom pre-order on Steam...? ;)

Tiny Spoiler (although the footage has been out for months) :

Actually, it's the sequence in which he has to ring certain bells to gain entrance to the lighttower. You can see it in the first 5 minutes of Bioshock Infinite gameplay.

I love the music that's being used in all these trailers! They just set the theme of the game so well. Plus, it reminds me of Bastion's soundtrack a lot.

Anyway, got my preorder as soon as I heard of the Gamersgate promotion for it.

Hey what's in this glowing bottle? I think I'll drink it and see what happens!

Well, a healthy glow is a sure sign of a truly fine drop.

He's still more rational than Jack, who sees a syringe full of a strange glowing red liquid, and his first idea, is to inject it directly into his wrists. Besides, in this game you spend about 20 minutes or so just walking around interacting with people before the shit hits the fan, so he might have already seen what the vigors do and know they don't hurt him.

Or I could point out that the studio is not called "Rational Games".

Yeah. I was kinda hoping they might have, you know, moved on a bit more since 2007? I suppose I was being over-optimistic.

Is it me or do the game's graphics and engine look REALLY dated.

Jack had chain tattoos on his wrists, in all likelihood he was a crack addict and couldn't help himself. Also, if you go to the 0:59 mark on the video Booker says 'What's this?' and seem rather sincere in his lack of knowing what it is.

That's why I'm going to wait for the game to be released before I make any real judgments about that scene or any other.

Not especially, no. They're not Crysis 3-levels of good for sure, but then Crysis 3 was a horrible videogame.

Is this a conversation we really need to be having about Bioshock 1? I mean, it came out something like 5 or 6 years ago, we've all seen that big reveal by now, right? That kinda wraps it up right there.

As far as Infinite goes, awesome trailer in a long, proud line of awesome trailers. I was sold when they put out the first one in 2010, I've been sold every step of the way since.

I think part of that is that they aren't necessarily going for total realism. It's not as blatant as say, Dishonored or TF2, but I think they're pretty clearly letting the art style take more of the lead than just the tech, which to me is usually the better call.

Besides, even if it's more subtle then sheer prettiness the tech is still impressive in places. Apparently all of the buildings are actually regarded as floating by the physics engine, they aren't just locked in place like standard level geometry.

Looking very much forward to actually playing this. Really need to replay the first two though... I know they're not really connected to Infinite but still. They were excellent.
