Irrational Games and 2K Games are ramping up the anticpiation with this new trailer for upcoming action adventure title Bioshock Infinite. In this video we get a better glimpse into main character Booker’s story.
There are just a handful of days until we finally get to explore the city of Columbia and I can’t wait. You can still pre-order your copy of Bioshock Infinite on Amazon in both theregular editionandPremium Edition.
Lutece probably refers to Rosalind Lutece, author of “The Principles of Quantum Mechanics,” the book that Elizabeth is holding when she first meets Booker and, as revealed this last December in his Reddit AMA, one of Ken Levine’s “favorite characters.”
While Lutece’s role has not been revealed fully yet, having her own track indicates she will be a reoccurring character throughout the game.
Rory O’More, however, is a new name that hasn’t been discussed yet.
Rory O’More could refer to a character that aids Booker and Elizabeth or, more likely, since it’s accompanied by the Irish folk tune “Saddle The Pony,” it’s a reference to Samuel Lover’s Irish ballad “Rory O’More.”
Since Rory O’more is something of a love story (eventually turned into a book by Lover), it’s possible that the track is eluding to the relationship and adventure that Booker and Elizabeth become entangled in.
