BioShock Infinite in October

2K Games announces an October 16, 2012 North American release date for BioShock Infinite, saying the first-person shooter sequel from Irrational Games will arrive in international stores on October 19th for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. "After BioShock, we had a vision for a follow up that dwarfed the original in scope and ambition," says Ken Levine (@iglevine), Creative Director of Irrational Games (@irrationalgames). "BioShock Infinite has been our sole focus for the last four years, and we canít wait for fans to get their hands on it." Here's word on the game:

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 Ė an Irrational Games signature.

BioShock has never had consolitis as bad as some games. Prez puts it well with his comment about the reasonable tradeoffs with mass-appeal. But still it had a bit of a consoley feel to it I never really liked. The news about the old school mode is pretty exciting and a huge step in the right direction. This is an obvious buy for me but I want to see some actual gameplay videos, not scripted set pieces, before I decide whether it's a day one purchase.
