Bioshock Infinite is only two weeks away, and we’ve been treated to quite a few new trailers recently. The latest trailer finally gives us a bit of insight into Booker’s backstory, while providing a great example of the obstacles he must overcome. With it’s bright, colorful setting of Columbia serving as a stark contrast to the series’ well-known dark and dim Rapture, the “False Shepherd” trailer proves that even the light can be horrifying.
The official synopses of the game reads:
BioShock Infinite puts players in the shoes of U.S. Cavalry veteran turned hired gun Booker DeWitt. Indebted to the wrong people and with his life on the line, DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He’s one man, alone. And the followers of the Prophet Father Comstock will stop at nothing to keep Booker from his Quarry. But with an arsenal of weapons and the incredible powers granted by Vigors, Booker deals death from above on the Sky-Lines of Columbia. And the girl he’s there to rescue might turn out to be the partner he needs to survive.
Bioshock Infinite is set for release on March 26 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
