Get A History Lesson On BioShock Infinite's Columbia

Posted on Monday, January 28 @ 07:30:04 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Ken Levine and his team at Irrational Games are master storytellers, as evidenced by their work on the original BioShock. They're upping the ante with its spiritual successor, and the faux documentary you see above is evidence to that fact.

The video provides a brief history lesson on BioShock Infinite's city in the sky, shedding light on why it was constructed and how it became its own independent nation of sorts. The description accompanying the clip reads: "In this 'Truth From Legend' segment, Alistar Bloom attempts to unlock the mysteries of Columbia, and reviews artifacts that pose new and troubling questions about the city."
