About BioShock Infinite
BioShock Infinite puts players in the shoes of U.S. Cavalry veteran turned hired gun Booker DeWitt.

Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret.
