Irrational releases beautiful alternative BioShock Infinite covers for printing

Developer Irrational Games released BioShock Infinite a few weeks ago to fawning reviews. Gamers seem mostly satisfied with the first-person shooter in the sky, but many still don’t like the cover or even the alternative box art printed on the opposite side.

Irrational today released eight other printable alternative covers for BioShock Infinite. They’re available here for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 versions of the game.

For those that don’t remember, last year Irrational lead designer Ken Levine revealed the official cover. It features hero Booker DeWitt holding a big gun. Fans threw a fit, and the backlash was enough to convince Irrational to print an alternative cover of the fans choosing on the reverse side of the official box art.

Fans chose a red hand-drawn cover featuring the mysterious Songbird character over eight other options, and now Irrational is back and offering printable versions of those proposed covers.
