So here is the first taste of 2k’s latest effort Bioshock Infinite. The game is certainly shaping up to be the spectacular, vertigo-inducing cyberpunk extravaganza Ken Levine had promised last month. You might want to have an air sickness bag at the ready.

Bioshock Infinite will be the third instalment of the hugely successful franchise and the first to depart from the claustrophobic metropolis of Rapture. Favouring a more grandiose affair; the cyberpunk inspired city of Colombia will be your backdrop –gliding through the skies as a both a symbol of American opulence and technological dominance. The game is set in 1912, fifty years prior to the events of the first two games. Players with take on the role of one Booker DeWitt, professional wrestler? No, a former Pinkerton agent now known as a “fixer” sent to Columbia to rescue Elizabeth.

I remain intrigued by the project and while the footage does look incredible. One thing I cannot get my head around is the release date. The game is scheduled for release sometime in 2012. Which begs the question, can the hype be sustained for that long?

We’ll see….
