The latest Bioshock Infinite trailer shows why Elizabeth shouldn’t be messed with.
As we get closer and closer to the March 26th release of Bioshock Infinite, Irrational Games are really ramping up the excitement with the release of new trailers and interesting tidbits about the game’s story and creation process. And, the more I see from Irrational, the more difficult the wait to play the game is becoming.
Since Friday, Irrational has released two Bioshock Infinite videos featuring the “Lamb of Columbia”. The first video — which can be seen below — is a continuation of the mid-20th-century styled “educational” series titled Columbia, A Modern Day Icarus?
These videos –which I love for their nostalgia factor alone — use the educational video format to introduce gamers to the mysteries of Bioshock Infinite’s setting, Columbia. The second video in the series discusses the mysterious Songbird creature and the “Lamb of Columbia” which it was apparently created to guard.

Today, the latest Bioshock Infinite video (somewhat) explains why the game’s protagonist Booker DeWitt has gone to Columbia and gives a glimpse as to why Elisabeth, the fabled Lamb of Columbia is so important. According to the description on the trailer’s YouTube page:
Of course, the Bioshock Infinite trailer doesn’t tell us exactly what Booker’s debt is or how Elizabeth managed to come by all those crazy powers.
I’m not going to lie.. I’m a huge fan of the original Bioshock. It was a stunningly beautiful game based in a “historical” period that I love. And now… It seems like Irrational Games may have done it again. Every time I see a Bioshock Infinite trailer, I find myself wanting to throw my money at my screen and tell them to take it all. I can’t wait to get my hands on this game.
