Bioshock: Infinite To Be Released in 2012. PLEASE WORLD DON'T END SOS I CAN PLAY IT ALL!

UM. Do you guys EVEN UNDERSTAND??!?!?!!?!

Way to eclipse my excitement for Fable 3 and Portal 2 by ANNOUNCING A THIRD BIOSHOCK GAME ARE YOU EFFING ME?!!?!?

The third game is set in the 1910s in a Cloud City called Columbia. While there is no direct connection, story-wise, to the first two Bioshock games, there is a nod to them in the trailer, and what we all love most about Bioshock include the gameplay, the sensibility, the tone, and the genius story/storytelling, which ANY Bioshock game will have, regardless of where & when it takes place and a connection to that psycho, Andrew Ryan.

Here's the official synopsis,

BioShock Infinite is a first-person shooter currently in development at Irrational Games, the studio behind the original BioShock (which sold over 4 million units worldwide). Set in 1912, BioShock Infinite introduces an entirely new narrative and gameplay experience that lifts players out of the familiar confines of Rapture and rockets them to Columbia, an immense city in the sky.
Former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt has been sent to rescue Elizabeth, a young woman imprisoned in Columbia since childhood. Booker develops a relationship with Elizabeth, augmenting his abilities with hers so the pair may escape from a city that is literally falling from the sky. DeWitt must learn to fight foes in high-speed Sky-Line battles, engage in combat both indoors and amongst the clouds, and harness the power of dozens of new weapons and abilities.

Drawing much more from Jules Verne than Ayn Rand, the trailer has a very steam punk vibe and is fucking gorgeous. And you hear that girl yelling? I went to NYU with her, she was the star student in our class and now she is DOING THE VOICE AND MO-CAP OF THE MAIN GIRL IN BIOSHOCK, which I happen to think is the coolest thing I've ever heard.

To hear more in depth details from those who got to witness the live demo (jealousy. OH THE JEALOUSY) head to Kotaku.

And if you haven't seen it yet, here's the trailer. 2012 come now plz.
