BioShock Infinite e-book prequel coming in February
A floating 1900s-era city in chaos, a woman with the power to distort reality, and a bevy of social and religious issues. With all of that and more, you’d be forgiven if you found BioShock Infinite’s plot to be a tad baffling at first sight. Luckily, Irrational Games will give those in need of a little more context just that with an e-book prequel to the game.
Written by Irrational writer Joe Fielder, with guidance from studio chief Ken Levine, BioShock Infinite: Mind in Revolt sets up the game’s conflict by focusing on Daisy Fitzroy, the leader of the rebel group known as Vox Populi, who are trying to take control of the city of Columbia from its tyrannical elite.
“Since we first announced BioShock Infinite, our fans have asked for more information about Columbia and the complex cast of characters that inhabit the floating city,” said Fielder. “After reading the e-book, players will have a better understanding of BioShock Infinite’s world, the struggle between its factions, and the motivations of key characters, like rebel leader Daisy Fitzroy, without spoiling the mysteries of BioShock Infinite.”
Mind in Revolt will be available on the Amazon Kindle on February 12, priced at $2.99. But if you pre-order BioShock Infinite through Amazon, you’ll get the book for free.
Whether you read the book or not, BioShock Infinite will be released on March 26.
