BioShock Infinite's Reverse Box Art Is Much Better

Regular readers will recall the brouhaha surrounding BioShock Infinite’s atrocious box art. After admitting that the cover was chosen as bait for frat boys, Irrational Games' gaffer Ken Levine also revealed that the developer would be producing an alternative image for players with more refined tastes. And here it is.

The art was voted for by fans of the game, with the embedded entry securing 38 per cent of the ticks. It will be printed on the reverse side of the less popular cover, allowing you to easily switch the design if you prefer. Other options will be available for you to download and print.

What do you think of the alternative box art? Let us know in the comments section below.

Much better. I like this trend; Borderlands 2 had a good alternate image on the reverse of the cover too, although I don't think it was intended as an alternate cover. I swapped it over anyway.

Wasn't a fan of this one. The art style is too rich and the illustrations too fanciful. Needs a realistically-proportioned male soldier holding a gun, maybe with some flames, with a ruined city in the back. I buy video games to drop suckers with a gun, not read no namby-pamby stories.

It's pretty decent. The hipster in me always reverses covers when I can. XD
