Bioshock Infinite trailer reaches new heights with city in the sky

Excited much? The new Bioshock Infinite trailer takes you out of Rapture and into the skies.

Great bit of fishtank tomfoolery to begin with and then up, up and away, albeit with a helping hand from a Big Daddy.

A bit of jiggery-pokery takes you through to the games’s official site, which has this synopsis:

Set in 1912, BioShock Infinite introduces an entirely new narrative and gameplay experience that lifts players out of the familiar confines of Rapture and rockets them to Columbia, an immense city in the sky.

Former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt has been sent to rescue Elizabeth, a young woman imprisoned in Columbia since childhood. Booker develops a relationship with Elizabeth, augmenting his abilities with hers so the pair may escape from a city that is literally falling from the sky. DeWitt must learn to fight foes in high-speed Sky-Line battles, engage in combat both indoors and amongst the clouds, and harness the power of dozens of new weapons and abilities.

Throw in buildings kept aloft by hot air balloons, sky-coasters and no doubt the usual blend of magic and extreme violence and I’m in like Flynn – you?
