If you've somehow avoided learning anything about BioShock Infinite thus far, today's trailer is for you. The "City in the Sky" trailer sums up the story and offers up loads of new gameplay footage in the process.
Booker DeWitt, a former Pinkerton agent, is hired to find a woman named Elizabeth. Elizabeth lives in Columbia, a floating city that disappeared from the public eye many years ago. Columbia, meant as a tribute to the American dream, looks like an airborne version of Anytown, U.S.A.
Though the city looks idyllic at first, Booker soon learns that it's anything but. A civil war breaks out between the two main factions, the Founders and Vox Populi. Furthermore, a giant mechanical beast known as the Songbird is intent on keeping Elizabeth captive in the city. Booker will have to fight all of these different enemies in order to save her from Columbia.
If you're curious about how Columbia came to be, be sure to watch the documentary trailer from earlier this week. In addition to being hilarious, it provides some excellent back-story on the city's founding and eventual disappearance.
