Preview: BioShock Infinite (360, PC, PS3)

It's the goal of this preview that you should know as much about BioShock Infinite as you already do. If you actually come out of the experience knowing less then I think I've done you a service.

What I can say about BioShock Infinite, in development at Irrational Games, the makers of the original BioShock, is that rather than set in the confines of an underwater "utopia" run afoul of horribleness, Infinite takes to the skies in a floating city and features a rampaging mechanical bird and a wide-eyed girl with the ability to rip holes in space-time.

And I've said too much.

Be surprised by this game. Learn nothing more. Look at trout streams rather than screenshots. And read a book rather than more previews. You're better off not knowing anything about BioShock Infinite until you start playing it.

Expected Release: February 26, 2013

Watch this official trailer -- from 2010 -- at your own risk:
