The next chapter in 2K Games' first-person shooter series, Bioshock, has been named as Bioshock Infinite. Featuring a new narrative experience, the game will be set in 1912 and will take us away from Rapture to a place called Columbia, a city in the sky.

Due for release in 2012, Bioshock Infinite follows the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, sent to the lost city to rescue Elizabeth, a young woman imprisoned there since childhood. He develops a relationship with Elizabeth, augmenting his abilities with hers so the pair may escape from a city that is literally falling from the sky. DeWitt must learn to fight foes in high-speed Sky-Line battles, engage in combat both indoors and amongst the clouds, and harness the power of dozens of new weapons and abilities.

Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games expands on the new location: "In order to explore the floating city of Columbia, we needed an entirely new engine. To bring Elizabeth to life, we had to build brand-new animation and AI systems. To create wide-ranging indoor and outdoor firefights at 30,000 feet, we had to rethink, rebuild and expand the BioShock arsenal. The only thing gamers can be certain of is this: the rules of the BioShock universe are about to change."

Bioshock Infinite will be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
