BioShock Infinite trailer

Every breath we take inches us closer to the release of BioShock Infinite. The anticipated shooter, set in the fictional floating American city of Columbia, is due out March 26 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

I can tell the game’s launch is nigh because the publisher has begun advertising preorder bonuses. Check out the latest trailer, which reveals the Industrial Revolution pack, a downloadable-content bundle that is free when players preorder the game at any retailer:

The Industrial Revolution pack comes with three in-game items that improve the hero’s abilities. This bonus content also gives players 500 silver eagles (Columbia’s currency), five lock picks, and a special puzzle game called Industrial Revolution.

The Industrial Revolution puzzle is a web-based game that will reveal stories about Columbia. It also gives players the opportunity to align with one of the game’s two factions, the Vox Populi or Founders, through Facebook.
