Although it was only available behind closed doors at E3 2011, the full fourteen minute demo of Irrational Games’ latest title, BioShock: Infinite, debuted to the public during the latest episode of GT.TV. That video has now been made available by publisher 2k Games, and we’ve got it for you right here.
The demo showcases the stunning graphical fidelity of BioShock: Infinite, making the vividly colored world of Colombia a near juxtaposition to the original Bioshock.
Despite lacking the dreary environments found in the first two Bioshock titles, Infinite appears to retain much of the dystopian atmosphere the franchise is known for. Levels are plastered with pro-American propaganda that try to display a sense of progress, yet at the same time tell the tale of world that is falling apart at the seams, much like the city of Rapture.
Take a look at the full BioShock: Infinite E3 demo.
The demo highlights new additions to gameplay, such as the skyline sections that Irrational Games Creative Director Ken Levine has described as a “roller-coaster stacked on top of a roller-coaster stacked on top of a roller-coaster.” Elizabeth is shown aiding the player in combat, demonstrating her use of “tears” to manipulate the environment and create opportunities for DeWitt. Also on display during the demo is Infinite’s revamped interface — specifically in relation to items one finds and the use of plasmids (now called “biggers”).
BioShock: Infinite won many awards at this past E3, including Game of Show from Game Rant. After viewing the full demo, it’s clear as to why: the enhancements to graphics and gameplay give Infinite more than enough merit to earn a spot as one of the most anticipated titles of 2012.

BioShock: Infinite is scheduled to release in Q2 of 2012 on the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
