BioShock Infinite took home four awards at this year's E3 expo, including Best of Show. After watching the footage shown to attendees, it's easy to see why. GameTrailers has posted 14 minutes of gameplay from the next iteration of the BioShock franchise, and "stunning" is one word that comes to mind.
Even the first glimpses of BioShock Infinite showed a lush, beautiful world. This latest video reveals much more of the floating city that serves as the game's playground, and I find myself itching to play the game just to explore.
Of course, there's more to Infinite than a fresh pseudo-steampunk setting. The video illustrates a new "tear" mechanic that's apparently an integral part of both the story and the gameplay. There are skylines, too—a sort of zipline railroad system that adds a layer of aerial combat while providing a quick way to navigate the city.
BioShock Infinite certainly looks like it's shaping up nicely. The game isn't due out until the second quarter of 2012, though. Hopefully, that leaves enough time for developer Irrational Games to cook up some enhancements for the PC version. A high-res texture pack would complement the game's rich environment quite nicely, don't you think?
