BioShock Infinite is getting a nifty new pre-order bonus: BioShock Infinite: Mind in Revolt is an e-book prequel for the game, giving a little insight into the why things are the way they are in the mysterious sky-city of Columbia. This ain’t no half-assed tie-in, either: Mind in Revolt is written by Irrational Games writer Joe Fielder, with help from creative director Ken Levine.
Since we first announced BioShock Infinite, our fans have asked for more information about Columbia and the complex cast of characters that inhabit the floating city. After reading the e-book, players will have a better understanding of BioShock Infinite’s world, the struggle between its factions, and the motivations of key characters, like rebel leader Daisy Fitzroy, without spoiling the mysteries of BioShock Infinite.
You’ll be able to pick up your copy of the eBook from February 12th when it released around the world. The digital download will set you back a measly US$2.99 – but if you pre-order BioShock Infinite through Amazon, you’ll get the novella thrown in for free!
