So at long last the new Bioshock Infinite “Beast of America” trailer is finally here. Fans voted on which characters and elements from Irrational Games’ upcoming 2013 Bioshock installment they would like to see featured, and the company obliged them by putting together the terrific trailer you will find later in this post.
By this point we already know quite a bit about the premise of Bioshock Infinite, thanks to the long gameplay video that was released to announce the game quite a while back. Bioshock Infinite takes place in 1912, and is set in a flying city called Columbia, which is actually a battleship suspended in the air by blimps. This time around, look for a bunch of exciting and powerful new plasmids to boost your abilities, as well as a “sky-hook” that will allow players to navigate the Columbia’s skyrail system. While the previous games in the Bioshock series were dark and moody, set in the distressed underwater city of Rapture, Columbia is vibrant, sunny and bright—but no doubt has many dark secrets of its own. “Would you kindly” check out the Bioshock Infinite “Beast of America” trailer now?

New footage always looks so exciting with a smart edit and set to a rockin’ tune. Also announce earlier this week were two Bioshock Infinite Collectors’ Editions, featuring various levels of swag such as: a board games, lithograph, art book, and a statuette–ranging in price from $79.99 for the Premium Edition, up to $149.99 for the Ultimate Songbird Edition. Save your shekels and pre-order early if you want to get in on the collector’s edition action.
