After teasing the world with "Project Icarus" in the summer of 2010, Irrational Games pulled back the curtain onBioShock Infiniteon August 12th with a dazzling trailer that introduced gamers to the franchise's brand-new setting, one of the game's many adversaries, and most importantly, Elizabeth, a mysterious girl possessing magical powers that the player as DeWitt is tasked with rescuing.
Of course, this was all done after leading gamers to believe that this new BioShocktitlewould be yet another underwater adventure, thanks to some clever creativity on the part of Irrational. Relive that glorious moment by checking out the announcement trailer below.
It wasn't until E3 the following year that we finally got our first extended look at gameplay. The fifteen-minute demo showcased skyline gameplay, plenty of shooting, Elizabeth's powers, and loads of endearing banter between her and Booker. We also got an up close and personal look at Songbird, one of Columbia's most threatening foes. Give it a look right here and see why it took home one of GameRevolution's covetedBest of E3 2011 Awards.
