Infinite lifts players out of the depths of Rapture and places them in Columbia, a heavenly estate in the sky.

Set in 1912, protagonist Booker DeWitt is sent to the airborne city to rescue an imprisoned child named Elizabeth. The pair's powers are fused together, and as a duo they attempt to escape Columbia.

Dewitt will fight indoors, outdoors and upon the clouds, harnessing the power of copious new powers and abilities.

The CGI cut-scene is stunning. There's a steampunk "Around The World In 80 Days" kind of vibe to the artwork, with a considerably different brighter style than the foreboding world of Rapture. The city is no utopia however. It represents a period of American discovery and pride, and it tellingly teeters adjacent to the US motherland. It's not, however, a beacon of prosperity. Levine, in fact, describes it as a "death star".

Check the trailer after the jump and tell us what you think. The game's due on PlayStation 3 in 2012. Don't expect this to be the last you hear about it.
