Booker and Elizabeth

A while back we got a chance to go behind the scenes with the voices behind BioShock Infinite's Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth in the first instalment of Irrational Games' two-part video blog series. The studio has now unleashed the second part of the series and the results inside are quite shocking, but we’ll let the video do the talking.

Warning: Heavy use of Explicit Language inside

We never thought that the actors would have to take personal verbal abuse to help put themselves inside the characters emotions, but as you can see, the end results are well worth it. It’s also interesting to see that director Ken Levine allows the game to meld and transition around the personalities of the actors, instead of having a set script that they just voice the characters around.

Do you think that this open-ended style of game development will put on a new level above anything we’ve played before? Let us know your thought in the comments section below.
