'BioShock Infinite' (ALL) GameStop Pre-Order Incentive

Set in 1912, BioShock Infinite introduces an entirely new narrative experience that lifts players out of the familiar confines of Rapture and rockets them to Columbia, an immense city in the sky.

Originally conceived as a floating symbol of American ideals at a time when the United States was emerging as a world power, Columbia is dispatched to distant shores with great fanfare by a captivated public.  What begins as a brand new endeavor of hope turns drastically wrong as the city soon disappears into the clouds to whereabouts unknown.

BioShock Infinite puts players in the role of Booker DeWitt, a hard-bitten former Pinkerton agent, together with the revolutionary AI companion, Elizabeth. The two struggle to escape the sky-city of Columbia, in a 1912 America that might have been. Armed with an arsenal of new weapons and abilities, they face menacing enemies, in unique expansive environments. Classic BioShock gameplay joins innovations such as aerial combat on high-speed Sky-Lines in the service of an immersive storyline – an Irrational Games signature.

Customers that pre-order and purchase at GameStop, EB Games and Micromania in Europe, Australia and New Zealand will receive the exclusive Fink Manufacturing SteelBook case at time of game pickup.

“GameStop is continually looking for ways to differentiate the company from other retailers,” said Mike Mauler, executive vice president of GameStop international. “By having unique exclusives such as the BioShock Infinite SteelBook case, we can ensure we offer the best value to our consumers.”

This pre-order exclusive steel book case features the logo of Fink Manufacturing, an in-game firm run by a wealthy and possibly insane industrialist, and is available while supplies last.
