The Dishonored pre-order 'incentives' incited my blood to boil by appearing to chop parts of the game off and deliver them piecemeal, but when I played the game I was so content that my blood remained at a comfortable, non-volatile temperature throughout. I don't think any of the preposterous packages can have done very much at all. Bioshock: Infinite is now offering a means to earn in-game rewards before its February release and I expect and hope that they will turn out to be similarly unnecessary. While it's essential to pre-order to begin the process of unlocking bonuses for a game that isn't out for almost half a year, there is a nifty puzzle game tied to the promotion. Industrial Revolution is available now to anyone with a pre-order.
So, how does it work?
Starting today, you can earn in-game items for BioShock Infinite! How, you ask? Well, today we are proud to announce BioShock Infinite: Industrial Revolution – our BioShock Infinite pre-order bonus.
BioShock Infinite: Industrial Revolution is a puzzle game in which you assume the role of a factory worker within the sky-city of Columbia. You complete increasingly difficult puzzles while learning more about the warring factions in the game and earning in-game rewards.
There are nearly 60 puzzles to play, and they are all FREE!
A picture of the puzzles suggests they are about creating machines, or maybe repairing them. This image may provide clues as to how the factory workers of Columbia spend their working days.
