Mind-Blowing Demo for BIOSHOCK INFINITE

We usually don’t cover video game stuff on Collider, but I had to post this extended demo of BioShock Infinite.  We’ve seen a brief trailer for the game, but this is a full-on, 15-minute look at the gameplay and my jaw was on the floor.  The art direction alone is astonishing.  As your character Booker DeWitt moves through the floating city of Columbia, I just wanted to tell the demo’s player to slow down and gaze at everything.  This looks like a game you won’t lose yourself in just because there’s so much to do, but also because it’s too beautiful to look away.  And it’s not just a pretty picture.  2K Games looks like they’ve built on the mechanics they introduce in BioShock, created a richer narrative, and crafted what could be one of the most immersive video games of all time.  There’s a ton of promise in this demo and it makes the wait until the game’s release (sometime in 2012) feel like an eternity.  If you had a most-anticipated game that wasn’t BioShock Infinite, it’s about to be pushed aside.

Hit the jump to check out the demo.

    i was very skeptical about this game but now i can see why everyone left E3 talking about it. it looks phenomenal.

  • Steve

    This is going to be the best thing since… well… the original Bioshock

  • Ryan

    Yea it does look amazing but my most anticipated game of 2012 is still Mass Effect 3.

  • TheTrickster

    The atmosphere is amazing!

    “This looks like a game you won’t lose yourself in just because there’s so much to do, but also because it’s too beautiful to look away.”

    Don’t take me as the garden-variety, run-of-the-mill nitpicker or nagging type — I’m definitely NOT trying to catch the writer in a “gotcha!” moment, but this does sound like a game I can lose myself in. Did the writer really mean that people WON’T lose themselves in it?

    I like Bioshock’s coldly horrific and creepy environments. Almost like Silent Hill, I definitely get absorbed into the mood and atmosphere.

    • Matt Goldberg

      I absolutely meant “lose yourself in”. You forget that you’re playing a game and all you want to do is explore this landscape that doesn’t actually exist.

    just like every other fps. the story blow and its mediocre at best. if you want real story telling then play CATHERINE from atlus. at least ATLUS knows how to make a video game that isnt a crappy FPS and takes a brain to actually play a game. to bad bioshits story telling isnt as epic as PERSONA 3 or 4

  • Michael

    It looks like that character has quite the lovely bosom… even if it’s just made of pixels. :)

      now you understand why songbird wants her back so badly.

    well, skyrim is still my most anticipated game–for 2011, anyway.

    • Derek

      I agree on Skyrim. I don’t know which one will be better, but I’m most looking forward to the freedom that can only be found in an Elder Scrolls title.

  • Dave Trumbore

    If nothing else, thank you BIOSHOCK INFINITE for introducing Elizabeth as a cosplay option.
