Forget steampunk and the past, I want to go back to the Von Braun...


EA owns that trademark.

I know but that doesn't change the fact I want another Ken Levine System Shock game.

I think a "shock" game in a ship with an AI is going to do really, really well and that's something you should think about.

That's sounds like a great idea. You should make that game.

Even though the whole premise has changed, the only thing that matters and why this will be a return to form...

Levine! :heart:

If this is a "new" project, I wonder what he's been working on since 2007

Actually, they said there may or may not be.

I hope it's drastically different, personally -- something more original, even if there are similarities between the original Bioshock and Infinite. For example, I hope there aren't little sisters or some sort of equal to them in this game.

I hope it is in the same Universe - not that it would have much impact either way, but it would be nice to see maybe a teenage Andrew Ryan running around, maybe better understand his desire to build Rapture, or even some other random characters from Bioshock. Not massive interconnectivity, but little nods here and there to pave the way for the future :)





That said, I'm interested in the game, but without seeing any gameplay yet, I've yet to get hyped up about anything, but I'll certainly keep my eye on it (=

Here's a really interesting interview with Ken Levine

http://www.joystiq.c...shock-infinite/



For those of you that don't know, Bioshock 2 had nothing to do with Irrational (the developers of the first Bioshock/System Shock 2).


Well, it had something to do with it, as 2K Marin was made up of former members of the original Bioshock team, who also did the PS3 port of the original as well.

Did anyone else notice during the trailer when hes falling and notices the conductor, the conductor looked like Cohen from Bioshock 1.

Hope they can make it work, taking the storyline outside of Rapture

Again, they said it may or may not have any relationship to that universe. I personally hope it has no relationship or, at most, a very small twist. I don't want them worrying about how to tie everything together... I just want them to make a good game.

He's been working on this since then.

Personally I hope they do tie it to Bioshock in some way, it doesn't have to be anything big, but enough to cement it in the same universe because there is no reason not to.
Rapture wasn't started till 1946, and Infinite takes place in 1912, so there is no reason to worry about having to sort anything together as it all happens before hand in Infinite.

This is in the same universe as bioshock 1, but they've said that "bioshock" is "bigger than just Rapture", why limit a game to just one location? This is a new city yes, so that lets you play with new game elements etc, which is exciting and fresh but you are still part of the bioshock world.

It's not like the world only has one city in it, heh. At the most this might have some minor tie-ins to Rapture in the sense that if you haven't played the first then playing this won't screw you over story wise. As for Bioshock 2, no one cares about that, it was another dev and means nothing to the story.

Where do they say it's the same universe as the first Bioshock? I can't seem to find that anywhere.

Every source I have read says this game has nothing to do with the first 2 Bioshock games

We don't know that.
