Local video game distributor X-Play Online Games unveiled in the Philippines on March 26 the latest first-person shooter (FPS) game Bioshock Infinite.
Formerly known as Project Icarus, Bioshock Infinite was developed by Irrational Games. The game has won over 75 awards ? including the Game Critics Awards? Best of Show, at E3 2011.
Set in a parallel 1912, the player assumes as former Pinkerton Agent Booker DeWitt. Unlike the watery exploits of past Bioshock games, Booker is sent to a place a lot less claustrophobic, tasked to retrieve a woman named Elizabeth in the air city Columbia.
Things get even more interesting as Booker gets caught between the conflict of two factions, and Elizabeth is at the center of it all.
Using a combo of weapons and psychokinetic powers augmented by Elizabeth?s own strange abilities, players will fight their way past the mysterious Songbird, out of the flying city and ultimately survive Bioshock Infinite.
?We are very excited with our latest FPS offering,? said Ron Aquino, GM of X-Play. ?This game definitely offers a refereshing breadth of features that players look for in an FPS game that they cannot find in other titles.?
Aquino explains that players get to go through exciting sequences where they fight from high-speed Sky-Lines, in the streets and houses of Columbia, on giant zeppelins, and in the clouds, all the while learning to harness the expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities.
?Bioshock Infinite enables players to immerse in a story that is not only steeped in profound thrills and surprises, but also invests in its characters that will surely set the bar in gaming,? Aquino said.
