BioShock Infinite PC and its many pre-order bonuses

BioShock Infinite PC and its many pre-order bonuses

It's common practice for AAA games to offer a variety of retailer-exclusive pre-order bonuses. The upcoming BioShock Infinite is no different. What makes Irrational Games' upcoming title so unique is how different each retailer's offering is.

Steam takes the most novel approach, with a tiered system that promises more bonuses based on the quantity of pre-orders. Already, players have unlocked the first tier of reward: the original BioShock, which can be gifted if you already own it. Later tiers include exclusive Team Fortress 2 items and, ultimately, a free copy of XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

BioShock Infinite trailer tours Columbia

BioShock Infinite trailer tours Columbia

The original BioShock wasted no time confronting you with bunny-mask wearing psychopaths to dispatch in the crumbled dystopia of Rapture. BioShock Infinite seems to be taking a different tack, letting you explore the flying city of Columbia in a more peaceful setting for a while.

BioShock Infinite character 'highly altered' after talking with religious team members

BioShock Infinite character 'highly altered' after talking with religious team members

The name BioShock Infinite had us scratching our heads upon announcement, but it might just be the most appropriate title for the game. The more series creator Ken Levine talks about it, the more it seems to be about everything. It carries some religious themes along with its other big ideas, but Levine says some of those were "highly altered" after he took some time to talk with religious members of the studio.

BioShock composer returns for Infinite

BioShock composer returns for Infinite

The original BioShock earned critical and fan praise for a host of reasons, including its haunting score. Rapture's underwater dystopia had plenty of licensed old-timey music, but dramatic moments were punctuated by an instrumental score from composer Garry Schyman. So good news, music fans. Irrational creative director Ken Levine has revealed that Schyman has returned to pen the score for the upcoming BioShock Infinite.

BioShock Infinite creator hearing criticism from opposite political sides

BioShock Infinite creator hearing criticism from opposite political sides

After the first BioShock and now with BioShock Infinite, it's clear that creator Ken Levine is interested in exploring political themes. By setting itself at the turn of the century, Infinite is primed to tackle issues of race, immigration, and the idea of American exceptionalism. As the old saying goes, everyone is a critic, so Levine says the game has gotten criticism from people from all over the political spectrum.

BioShock Infinite opens poll for second cover

BioShock Infinite opens poll for second cover

After the BioShock Infinite box art (above) received a notably tepid reception from the gaming community, series creator Ken Levine chipped in with a very frank and honest explanation. Essentially: This cover isn't for you, Mr. Informed Gamer, it's for the frat houses because the game needs to sell. But he promised that the company would release downloadable covers that players could print out on their own. Now, it's actually doing one better.

BioShock Infinite multiplayer 'experiment' cut due to resources

BioShock Infinite multiplayer 'experiment' cut due to resources

BioShock Infinite's multiplayer mode has become a casualty of the game development process. But to hear Irrational head Ken Levine describe it, the mode was always a risky "experiment" that serves as an example of how the developer iterates and tosses concepts that don't work or can't be finished.
