One of our most-anticipated games of 2012, BioShock Infinite, finally has a release date: October 16. 2K Games today confirmed the BioShock Infinite release date for North American Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC owners. BioShock Infinite will be available internationally three days later, on October 19.
Developed by Irrational Games, the same company that created the original BioShock, BioShock Infinite puts players in the role of Booker DeWitt, a hard-bitten former Pinkerton agent, together with the revolutionary AI companion, Elizabeth. The two struggle to escape the sky-city of Columbia, in a 1912 America that might have been. Armed with an arsenal of new weapons and abilities, they face menacing enemies, in unique expansive environments. Classic BioShock gameplay joins innovations such as aerial combat on high-speed Sky-Lines in the service of an immersive storyline – an Irrational Games signature.
“After BioShock, we had a vision for a follow up that dwarfed the original in scope and ambition,” said Ken Levine, Creative Director of Irrational Games. “BioShock Infinite has been our sole focus for the last four years, and we can’t wait for fans to get their hands on it.”
We can’t wait either, Ken. We can’t wait either.
