BioShock Infinite
BioShock Infinite Modern Day Icarus Part 2 Attempts to Unravel the Mystery of the Songbird

View author's profile

The second part of the slightly weird BioShock Infinite faux documentary 'Columbia: A Modern Day Icarus?' takes a look at the myths behind the mysterious Songbird, thought to be the protector of the fabled floating city. Like the first part, it's all a bit odd, and shows strange captured footage of Songbird, as well as children's rhymes derived from the legends.

Once again, the video is narrated by Alistar Bloom and aims to separate the truth from legend, laying out the facts and dispensing with the fiction. Bloom notes that the Songbird is in fact keeping something in rather than out, a prodigious child who's being held captive.

We all know that child turns out to be Elizabeth, who you'll need to rescue as the game's hero, Booker DeWitt. Check out the second part of the Columbia: A Modern Day Icarus? video below. You can watch the first part here. BioShock Infinite is out on March 26th.

This is really cool, it slightly reminds me of an Alan wake style of story telling. I'm really pumped for this game.

I'm really scared this game won't live up to expectations.

I love it! It really brings columbia to life with these documentary-style ads. Only a month or so to go to get my hands on this game

@11 - Does everything relate to COD with you? Jesus Christ.

OT - I love this kind of stuff in games, it really interests me. I wasn't very excited for this but after viewing both of these trailers (missed the first one) I can say I'm very excited for it.

@11 The past two COD titles have each been better than their predecessor. Go away troll.
