Bioshock Infinite Ultimate and Premium Editions revealed

Thursday, 18th October 2012 13:27 GMT By Nick Akerman

Bioshock Infinite designer Ken Levine has released details of the game’s Ultimate Songbird and Premium Editions. In a post on the Irrational Games blog, Levine describes the process of coming up with these special versions.

“Imagine you get to work with Robb Waters, the concept artist who visualized the cover of System Shock. The Trickster in Thief. Man-Bot in Freedom Force. BioShock’s Little Sisters. Sander Cohen. And BioShock Infinite’s Songbird.”

“Now imagine you can get him to personally conceive and oversee the production of the coolest statue in the world.”

“Then imagine we put that huge sucker in a period-style box, with custom artwork by Robb and Irrational concept artist Jorge Lacera. And that box went IN the collector’s edition box so you could leave that guy unpunched in his original packaging while you tear happily into the rest of the goodies.”

Here’s the statue:

If you don’t want to fork out $149.99 for that, the Premium Edition will cost $79.99 and also includes plenty of interesting memorabilia. Players can look forward to the following:

-A 3-inch baby version keychain of the sold-out Murder of Crows vigor bottle replica.
-A 5 x 7-inch lithograph by Jorge Lacera.
-A 25 millimeter, resin-cast Handyman miniature from the upcoming BioShock Infinite board game by Plaid Hat Games, makers of Summoner Wars.
-A mini art book, full of BioShock Infinite concept art and commentary, with a hand-distressed cover.
-Various digital goodies: exclusive in-game gear, a digital soundtrack, and platform specific downloadable content (Avatar costumes for Xbox 360, and Themes for PC and PlayStation 3).

All of this will also ship with the Ultimate Songbird edition, you just don’t get the cool statue.

Both editions are available in limited quantities and can be pre-ordered here.

    Seems like the recent news of three people leaving the development team is probably not really bad news. Seems like they really finished their job on the game, otherwise i don’t think we’d be having a new trailer sunday and this news today. I’m glad, cause i look VERY forward to this one.

    Yea your right @1
    Alot of people assume If someone leaves the group/team so late in development Its a bad thing but everyone has a particular job in creating a game that doesn’t mean everyone coming in to the project is the same amount finishing the project.

    That said this is gamers who complain and torment themselfs for the sake of doing so on the internet so let them be..
