How four women created Elizabeth for BioShock Infinite

Even though BioShock Infinite has Booker DeWitt as its title character, developer Irrational Games has worked hard on the character of Elizabeth to make her believable and compelling. Case in point: a new video showing off the four women that became Elizabeth for the game.

Apparently, Elizabeth from BioShock Infinite is something of a franken-woman. According to a new video released by Irrational Games, her character was constructed from four different people. Courtnee Draper gives her her voice, while Heather Gordon is her motion capture actress. Character motivations come from level designer Amanda Jeffrey, while her real-life persona from Russian cosplay personality Anna "Omerli" Moleva.

You'll get to see Elizabeth in action when the game comes out on Tuesday for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

      This game is looking good. The setting, 1999 mode, BL2-like PC options. Bring it on.

        He slowly lifted the binoculars to his face, hand trembling. "Look back there", she said, and pointed out over the ocean. He twisted the binoculars in order to better focus on the horizon. "What am I looking at?", he asked exasperated "I Don't see anything". "Look!" she screamed as she shifted her body behind his. He brought the binoculars back up to his face, hands shaking even more than before now, and peered again at the horizon. Slowly, silently, three small orb-like shapes rose up from the sea like Cthulhu rising from an ancient other wordly slumber.

        They appeared red at first in no decipherable pattern, but as they lay silent hovering above the water the color began to change from red to silver, and steam began emanating from the orbs, as if they were cooling off. "What the hell are those things!?" she asked him, barely audible now. He turned to answer her "I dont-", but before he could finish his sentence they began to move. The first sphere positioned itself before the last, and a second before that. "WHAT IS IT?!!" she asked, now screaming. He turned to her, his eyes now cold and dead.

        "Its... it's an ellipsis" he said, and dropped his binoculars. "We have to go."

      Her head and hands are too big for her body, she and everyone else in B:I look like chibi bobblehead characters. It's my only gripe with the franchise.
