where is the new ip?all this hype for another bioshock game

Omega43204d ago

Indeed what a lie that was.

But what is strange is its not called Bioshock 3, so maybe they see it as a new IP.

Mmmkay3204d ago

just like assassins creed brotherhood is a new ip, right?

AndrewRyan3204d ago

Completely different world. Check.
Completely different characters. Check.
Completely different story. Check.
Completely different game. Check.
Different title. Not check.

The only thing that is missing is a new title. If this was called Infinite or something, you people would immediately say OH LOOK A NEW IP YAY.

zeeshan3204d ago

Ok, I WANT this game right now. I LOVE Bioshock games and even though, many people don't want to see a new Bioshock games, it's a gteat news to Bioshock fans like myself. CAN'T WAIT!

SilentNegotiator3204d ago (Edited 3204d ago )

Anyone else not able to get the trailer to load?

They should have saved "Infinite" for the inevitable Bioshock in Space.

I think this looks really cool. I love the steampunk that is Bioshock. Them taking it to the sky is a fresh way of keeping the same style, but adding new locations and stories.I guess it is safe to say the Bioshock is a namesake now, like Final Fantasy. Hey we all have to start everywhere. I am interesting to see what other steampunk themes and eras they plan to explore in the future. I also think that Bioshock 2 isn't their main focus. I would assume that every Bioshock game will be set in a new locale with new everything, from here on out. I'll keep my ear on this one. Hyped up or not, the Bioshock Universe is really interesting and I am glad it is being creatively expanded, instead of milked.

tinybigman3204d ago

that looked pretty interesting. taking it to the skies is very different and i can see/feel that the tension is gonna be high in this game for fear of falling out of this city. i think i'll keep myself updated on this one to see what else they are going to do with it.

TheLastGuardian3204d ago

We don't know anything yet but the setting. Are you just mad because Andrew Ryan won't be in it?

MisterNiwa3204d ago

We know the story, you play an Agent that is going to Columbia to rescue Elizabeth, a Woman that was kept in Columbia since she was a child.

We know the setting, 1912, Columbia, a city in the sky with an artificial summer-day look.

I smell this being actually a new ip that 2k decided to tie instead to bioshock for sales

El_Colombiano3204d ago

No no the art style is FAR too similar to Bishock's to be a new I.P. THAT would confuse people.

jack_burt0n3204d ago

The interview with levine he stated that its bioshock in namesake like final fantasy is.

Its core gameplay mechanics only.

deafwing3204d ago (Edited 3204d ago )

... in the past ... but they are really feeding off the previous one with this one. Also I guess after they had stuffed gamers underwater for so long they figured

..."hey we'll throw the same look and feel at gamers cuz they dont' know any better and put them up in the skies."

I seriously hope the gameplay makes up for this attitude :/ cuz I'm getting this

"... we wanted this in the last game but we were pressed for time" kind a feel from the video.

callahan093204d ago

Irrational Games didn't even make the last Bioshock game. This game and Bioshock 2 have basically nothing in common except name. Ken Levine / Irrational Games did not design, produce, or develop Bioshock 2. THIS is the true sequel to Bioshock (I liked Bioshock 2 but in a "more of the same" kind of way, it was fun and all but definitely just kind of a continuation of Bioshock, not anything groundbreaking... I think this game is going to be a whole new experience and not just feel like more levels in the same game).

deafwing3203d ago

they are just using the same art direction and still to my point .. biting off the style from the previous game?

lightningsax3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

Dude, Mario Galaxy was just Mario in space with the same look and feel. Final Fantasy VI was just Final Fantasy IV with a few different rules, better graphics, and a new story. Uncharted 2 was an improvement on Uncharted. Bioshock was a new iteration on System Shock 2. So what?

Okay, I get the Bioshock 2 anger. That was more an expansion than a sequel. This sure doesn't look like it. Now, if this game consists of a first-person perspective with Big Somethings, plasmids, and throwing electric stuff into water, then yes, you're in the right, but this doesn't look that way from what I've seen.

Just remember that some of the best and most innovative titles have been some sort of sequel. Actually, I'd say the best was a prequel - Shadow of the Colossus.

xJxdOggyStYLe3204d ago

wowowowowowo!! day 1 amazing! i love the bioshock series!

SaberEdge3204d ago

Me too. Bioshock is still one of the best games I have played this generation. Bioshock Infinite will be a day 1 purchase.

Kurt Russell3203d ago

If I could pre-order now I would - Great games that smack of atmosphere!

ProjectVulcan3204d ago (Edited 3204d ago )

Looks like 2K might have just pulled the old Activision Call of Duty dev switch. The main developer lays down the benchmark and the secondary throws out another game along the same lines. This could really be a fantastic game and if it sells well 2K marin will probably knock out the sequel to this one in the same setting like they did with bioshock 2.

I liked bioshock 2 but to be frank it missed that sense of wonder for obvious reasons the first provided with this unexplored, unfamiliar, mysterious underwater city. I think we have a vague idea of the tone this game will take but im really anticipating a whole new setting full of amazing sights. Ken Levine is working on this bioshock, if its not superb, i will be quite surprised.

TheLastGuardian3204d ago

I'm very excited! It's going to be a long wait for this game. I thought that was andrew ryan listening to the record player in the trailer but that can't be if it's set in 1912(100 years before the games release). Ken Levine stated it is just a spiritual succesor but I hope it has tons of similarities to the first Bioshock. Can't wait to hear more info.

likedamaster3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

Ken Levine is at the helm, and Bioshock in title? Sold. Nuf said.

Edit: From what I hear(GWJ podcast), they will use NO assets from Bioshock 1-2 but will indeed have all new assets.

Mucudadada3204d ago

Bah, I wanted a new IP. I loved, loved Bioshock, but felt it was a complete game not in need of a sequel. I failed to even play the second. Buuut, this one is in a new city, so it may warrant a purchase. I jut need more info.

Cold 20003204d ago

Same as you, I think Bioshock 2 was we got a third one.

Rich16313204d ago

It is different though, it is just Bioshock in name but a whole new character, story, and setting. Plus it is being made by Irrational, they made Bioshock 1 not 2.

Merivigian3204d ago

I agree, this has nothing to do with Rapture or anything.

19423204d ago (Edited 3204d ago )

actually it looks like bioshoock just in the sky instead of the ocean. when you read the synopsis it even sounds like the bioshock story. the character doesn't matter since they don't talk or even have faces. this is just them trying to cast in on the bioshock name and it is too bad bioshock used to really something good but is now ending up like every other shooter(rehashing the same thing over and over).

-the big daddy is sent to save the girl(in infinity it is a regular guy)

-the girl and the big daddy have a connection because of the girls powers and have a close relationship

-they are trying to escape a collapsing city

it is all the same just in the sky.

SoSLy3204d ago

I dont think Bioshock in the Sky is very "bioshock" to me. Wheres the creepyness and the atmosphere of the game.

tplarkin73204d ago

I played Bioshock 1 and 2 which were both amazing. But, the major complaint from many people was that the atmosphere was too dark.

Besides, the floating buildings looked really cool. I thought the hot-air baloons were hilarious and creative.

Kolma3204d ago

new game but using an old IP to make sure it stays afloat?
long as it's bioshock related i am excited for it

MrLife3204d ago

WAIT WAIT is this BioShock 3????
