BioShock Infinite Video Shows Columbia's Origin

By Jonathan Barnes, 5 years ago
In Greek Mythology, Icarus was the boy who flew too close to the sun on wings made of wax and feathers by his father, Daedalus. His wings melted and he crashed back to the earth, dying... obviously. This myth has long been used to warn people from reaching too high, pushing too hard, and trying to exceed the limits of what is right, just, good, and decent.

Enter Columbia, BioShock Infinite (Xbox 360)'s city in the clouds. How did it get up there? What was its original purpose? In this faux-documentary video, Irrational Games lays the foundation for Columbia's history.

BioShock Infinite is set for a March 26th release.
