BioShock Infinite Modern Day Icarus Part 2 Attempts to Unravel the Mystery of the Songbird
Written Friday, February 15, 2013 By Richard WalkerView 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.
