BioShock 1 and 2 took place in a futuristic underwater city. We could say they took the franchise in a new direction, but since that direction happens to be about two miles straight up, it probably wouldn't be very punny. If you're looking for BioShock 3, don't worry about drowning any more. Falling is the real killer in this sequel, because this is BioShock Infinite!
With sky-lines criss-crossing the city of Columbia, you'll be able to soar wherever you're needed, using the steampunk/Batman inspired Sky-hook. Your main form of transport may also be one of your coolest weapons, as you can use it to dish out some major damage to anyone in your way.
As you explore Columbia, you'll be tasked to rescue femme fatale Elizabeth and use her astounding abilities to solve the mysteries of this city in the clouds. You probably won't run into anyone named Lando, but there are sure to be some dastardly rogues inhabiting the shadows. Just keep a box of tissues handy, as this game has promised to take emotional ties in gaming to new â€œheights.â€ Plus, there are freaking zeppelins!
The BioShock Infinite release date is Tuesday, March 26.
