The game, currently being developed by original BioShock team Irrational Games, whisks us back to the floating city of Columbia in the year 1912. We play as a Pinkerton agent sent there to find and save a girl who had been kidnapped and kept there. Being a prequel, storylines should come into play setting up what we already know about the mythology, including in regard to Big Daddies and plasmids, which we’ve already been teased with.
We won’t take up too much of your time; you can click on over to the other side right now to watch the BioShock Infinite gameplay demo video!
Not that it should have to be mentioned, but just in case: this is a significantly long video. That means there very well could be a lot shown off you don’t want to see. For me, a few minutes of a demo aren’t enough to stop me from watching and salivating over this a few times.
Keep in mind: this game is not even set for release until some time in 2012. After watching this, that is about as painful a wait as I can think of, and I might just weep about it. But it also means that there’s still THAT much time for them to perfect what you’re already seeing here. That, my friends, is exciting stuff.
