Good news for fans of the BioShock series, as BioShock Infinite will launch on October 16th, 2012, in North America, and October 19th internationally. BioShock Infinite takes you to the floating city of Columbia, and is set some years before the first BioShock game. While Infinite is not a prequel to the rest of the BioShock series, you will be experiencing similar gameplay elements and societal concerns. In Infinite, you play as Booker DeWitt, a former Pinkerton agent, sent to find the captive Elizabeth. She plays an essential part to the story and will help you out as you traverse the giant city. Booker has a variety of weapons at his disposal, plus some powers similar to the plasmids from past games. For even more of a challenge, you can turn on the game's 1999 Mode to remove modern ammenities like respawns for that classic feel.

BioShock Infinite will release on the PC, PS3, and 360.
