It's been quite a long wait since the game's 2010 announcement and it's still a few months out, but 2K Games have set an official release date for BioShock Infinite, the hotly anticipated follow-up to Irrational Games' 2007 acclaimed shooter.
Eager Australians can mark their calendars on October 19th 2012 as the day when the floating city Columnbia is scheduled to take flight (the usual 2 days after the October 16 North American launch).
BioShock Infinite puts players in the role of Booker DeWitt, a hard-bitten former Pinkerton agent, together with the revolutionary AI companion, Elizabeth. The two struggle to escape the sky-city of Columbia, in a 1912 America that might have been. Armed with an arsenal of new weapons and abilities, they face menacing enemies, in unique expansive environments. Classic BioShock gameplay joins innovations such as aerial combat on high-speed Sky-Lines in the service of an immersive storyline – an Irrational Games signature.
