2K Games and Irrational Games have today revealed the official box art design for the highly anticipated BioShock Infinite videogame. Set for release early next year, BioShock Infinite is currently in development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
Looks good, but still a bit too 'action hero' for what the game will actually be like...
Yeah it's a bit heavy on the action hero. Hopefully we get a nice subtle thin case like we did with the first bioshock. It's a strong logo, doesn't really need a picture.
Nathan Drake?? Wtf, this doesn't represent the game well at all.
What a step down from the original and the one with Bomberman on it.
Bit heavy on the (I'd add "white American" here) action hero.
Yeah, they should've used the girl on the cover like the first one, which imo invoked emotion, just like the actual game. But maybe this game will lean towards more action than Irrational's first one.
Agreed...I understand that this game is based on American patriotism but they could have tuned the cover down a little. Edit: All the cover needs now is Captain America wearing a Proud to be Republican t-shirt.
Well the flag *is* on fire....they could have done worse.
The cover is the original Uncharted cover in reverse. BUT really, who cares? We all know the games is going to be amazing. I would buy it, if it came in a paper sleeve honestly.
have you play it already!???
I agree but they may be going with this kind of action hero cover just for the moms and casual gamers that wander around the store just looking to grab a game that they know nothing about. All of the non-casual gamers like us already plan on buying it no matter the cover so they don't have to worry about us liking the look.
He looks like Nathan Drakes ancestor....you know the pic they used on most Drakes Fortune marketing with him and the shotgun above his shoulder
i can't hate on the gaming seeing how i pre ordered the $150 collectors edition lol. How often a game box makes you say i have to get this game? its something you look at once and im my case never because i buy the game its in a bag than i come home put the disk inside my system and that's all for the box.
Looks awesome. can't wait this is my most anticipated game for next year.
It's funny how people don't like that you really want this game I'm with you dude!
Lol. Tell me about it. Bunch of tools
>blue and orange.
And we can't forget the classic chin down, eyes up.
Teal and orange is everywhere. I can't wait for the entertainment industry to discover other colours.
Is that Nathan Drake? Kidding, of course
Looks cool but it could have been better.
Don't like it. I thought the placeholder art was fine. Doesn't need a big hero with a gun plastered on it.
F***ing awful 2K. http://venturebeat.com/2012... I expected better from a BioShock game.
I can understand it from a marketing stand point, but from a graphic design point the purist in me hates these main character covers. My favorite cover this gen is either Oli Moss's Resistance 3 cover or the Sleeping Dogs cover. oh and Heavy Rains origami cover was really cool and understated.
Starhawk, Killzone 2, God of War 3, and R:FoM had great covers too.
Very generic. Cancelling preorder. Kidding, of course, i don't have a preorder. Considering the subject and setting, they could have done a lot with it. But you can't judge a game by its cover.
You had me going there, for like half a second, lol.
which is what everybody is doing for some reason :/
Graphic artist wirked before for a romantic novel publisher...lol! Cheeezeee!!!
Wow, we play as the inventor of hair gel? That's quite a twist.
