BioShock Infinite
BioShock Infinite Launch Trailer and Infographic Feature Revelations

Unless you've been living under a rock on Jupiter, you'll probably be well aware that BioShock Infinite is out tomorrow, taking disgraced Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt to the sky city of Columbia, where he's out to wipe clean a debt by rescuing the imprisoned Elizabeth.

But did you know that BioShock Infinite took 631 miles of code to create, with Irrational Games drinking an ungodly amount of soda and recoridng over 10,000 lines of dialogue. You can find out more incredible BioShock Infinite factoids in the infographic below.

You can also check out the launch trailer for the game, and if you're a sucker for punishment, you can also use a classic Konami code cheat to unlock the hard as nails 1999 Mode from the get go [as discovered by GI], rather than unlocking it after completion. With the 'Play Game' option selected, press 'Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A' and hey presto, 1999 Mode is yours to play.

1999 Mode makes ammo more scarce, enemies tougher and resurrection much pricier, as Dan notes in his BioShock Infinite review. Not read it yet? You really should.

Wow, the stats thing is really cool. But they should really kick back on the soda, and drink something more healthy!

Just picked up my copy. Sadly, I'm still stuck at work, but I can't wait to play this, looking at all the reviews. Let's see if that mythical 100 from Dan in his review is really fitting.

I reckon I'll leave 1999 mode for my second playthrough, it's cool to give people the option to play it old school immediately though!

I love infographics, more developers should make them up. I'd love one for every decision in the Mass Effect Trilogy, for instance.

1 and 2 are good games and you can get the ultimate rapture pack edition with both for 40 bucks. very much worth it. but you could skip them both for now and just get this one and not be lost since the stories are in no way related

@ 13

Not really Your actually watching a 30 second ad so you can see a 60 second ad. That's Google logic!

Great trailer for what looks to be a great game, it's just a shame they don't credit it as the first game to score 100 on X360A

Been waiting 3 years for this game, now I'm only 5 hours away from getting my hands on it. It's making me giddy.

Do you use the cheat code at the start screen? Is the season pass available today?
