BioShock Infinite Prequel eBook is Coming, Free with Pre-OrderBy: Sean Patterson - January 22, 2013
BioShock Infinite: Mind in Revolt will be released for the Kindle bookstore on February 12. Readers can pay $3 to download it, but a free copy of the novel comes with every BioShock Infinite pre-order as well. The book is written by Irrational writer Joe Fielder with the help of Irrational’s 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,” said Fielder. “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.”
That’s Daisy in the picture above. The full poster, seen below, shows her as the leader of the Vox Populi faction in the game.
In addition to a free copy of Mind in Revolt, gamers who pre-order BioShock Infinite get the “Industrial Revolution Pack,” which includes three in game items that “boost combat abilities,” 500 bonus in-game currency, five lock picks (in-game, presumably), and a puzzle game that is somehow tied to Facebook.
