There’s No BioShock Infinite Gameplay In This Trailer And We Don’t Care


Trailers don’t always need to be obvious to be effective. For instance, everyone I’ve talked to about this new BioShock Infinite trailer has said how impressed they were with it and how excited they now are for the game. Granted, most were excited before the trailer (and have been waiting a looooooong time for it to come out) but a little creativity goes a long way.

    I already mentioned this on another site, but I love how much world building and storytelling they fit into such a small video. I’m really getting into the world they’re creating.

    Don’t hurt me, but I’ve never played a Bioshock game. I’m really interested to learn more about this world.

    This world is separate from the world of the original BioShock — which is incredible in its own right. The main themes that BioShock and BioShock Infinite share are special biological powers (“plasmids” in the original and “vigors” / “nostrums” in Infinite), a specific art/architectural style (art deco in the original, Greek Revival in Infinite), and an overarching theme (libertarianism in the former and exceptionalism/patriotism in the latter).

    Oh, and both worlds are essentially isolated, self-contained laboratories, each created by an eccentric idealistic genius (Andrew Ryan, Comstock). Of course that’s really simplifying matters, but I find that’s in a nutshell how they’ve created two very different and yet very similar universes, I adore how much world building the creators put into the games — it really makes them pop.
