Like most gamers I am heads down in great games like Borderlands 2 and XCOM:Enemy Unknown right now and with Halo 4 and Call of Duty:Black Ops 2 on shelves within the next three weeks it's hard to think about games coming out in 2013. That said it is probably time to start planning "sick days" for Bioshock Infinite release on February 26, 2013 given how epic this new trailer is.
The trailer reveals a bit of the motivations of our protagonist ("Bring us the girl and wipe away the debt") and provides a glimpse of a familiar lighthouse at the top of the trailer before plunging headfirst into a host of new gameplay footage. The footage is pure atmospheric gold and I'm really digging their use of lighting. I'm still interested to see how the game actually plays and how easy it is to grab and latch onto things in the environment as none of the trailer really indicate any kind of UI clues on how that works. Anyway, enough of my prattling though, here's the trailer.
