BioShock Impresses All From E3


Even though E3 has been over for some time, news from the gathering still continues to generate.  2K Games recently announced that [i]BioShock[/i] has received multiple nominations in the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) Game Critics Awards and to date has won 17 E3 awards including a sweep of Best of Show awards from multiple videogame web sites. [i]BioShock[/i] is an innovative shooter in development at Irrational Games, a wholly owned studio by publisher 2K Games.[p]
“We are very pleased with the overwhelming enthusiasm BioShock received at E3,” said Christoph Hartmann, President, 2K. “Irrational Games is at the forefront of defining next generation gaming with BioShock. Set in a rich underwater utopia gone horribly wrong, BioShock features emergent gameplay driven by player choice which seamlessly integrates RPG, adventure, and shooter elements.”[p]
Mixing a spine-chilling setting, sci-fi themes, RPG elements and a deep storyline with first-person action, [i]BioShock[/i] resembles [i]System Shock 2[/i] in several ways, and although [i]BioShock[/i] does not take place in the [i]System Shock[/i] universe, it can be thought of as a spiritual successor to the series.[p]
[i]BioShock[/i] is slated for an early 2007 release for the Xbox 360 and PC.
