The release date for highly anticipated FPS BioShock Infinite has been revealed, along with a special bonus for gamers who purchase the PS3 version of the game.
On the PS Blog, Irrational Games Game Evangelist Ratana Huot announced that BioShock Infinite will be released on October 16th in North America for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. The game will be available on October 19th internationally.
The PS3 version of the game will support Sony’s PlayStation Move controller and include a free copy of the critically acclaimed original BioShock for PS3 on the same Blu-ray disc.
Ken Levine, creator of BioShock and President of Irrational Games, said:
After BioShock, we had a vision for a follow up that dwarfed the original in scope and ambition. BioShock Infinite has been our sole focus for the last four years, and we can’t wait for fans to get their hands on it.
