If you haven’t watched the most recent trailer for Bioshock Infinite, man, you really should. It’s a spoiler free trailer perfect for those on media blackout but still craving to see more Bioshock Infinite related things. Check it out:
The aesthetic authenticity of the game with its 4:3 ratio, low resolution footage, and narration style is a true delight. In addition, the documentary takes a fitting perspective for players, focusing the tone around a question instead of a thesis. While the footage of Columbia scenes are clearly in-engine as the individuals move their bodies naturalistically, it’s still a pretty great trailer. While I prefer for videos about video games to show gameplay, this kind of marketing is one I can get behind.
Bioshock Infinite comes to Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, on March 26th, 2013.
