NEW YORK -- January 22, 2013

2K Games and Irrational Games announced today that BioShock® Infinite: Mind in
Revolt, an e-book prequel to the forthcoming BioShock Infinite, will be
available worldwide for the Amazon Kindle beginning February 12, 2013 for
$2.99 and will be free for those who pre-order the game through Amazon.

BioShock Infinite: Mind in Revolt provides insight into the mysterious
sky-city of Columbia prior to the events of BioShock Infinite and is written
by Irrational Games’ writer Joe Fielder with 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.”

Also available worldwide for free to those who pre-order BioShock Infinite  is
the Industrial Revolution Pack, which grants exclusive access to three in-game
gear items that boost combat abilities, 500 bonus in-game currency, five lock
picks, and the Industrial Revolution puzzle game which unlocks stories of
Columbia and allows players to pledge their allegiance to the Vox Populi or
Founders through Facebook.

BioShock Infinite is rated M for Mature by the ESRB. For the latest news and
