BioShock Infinite: Ken Levine gets down to business with game thespians in latest teaser

What does BioShock Infinite, The Bold and the Beautiful, and Naruto Shippuden have in common? This video, for starters. Join Irrational Games’ Ken Levine and voice actors Troy Baker and Courtnee Draper in this behind-the-scenes teaser for BioShock Infinite. You’ll get a bit of insight into what Ken Levine looks for in a voice actor and more on the art of bringing life to the upcoming title’s two main characters: Booker Dewitt and Elizabeth.

While Troy Baker may not be as famous as Nolan North, he’s done a ton of voice work for games, like Batman: Arkham City, Modern Warfare 2, Final Fantasy XIII, and even World of Warcraft. Anime fans may also recognize him from the English dubs of many popular series, including BECK, Bleach, Darker than Black, and Naruto Shippuden.

Scheduled for a 2012 release, BioShock Infinite took home GamesRadar’s Best of Show award at E3 2011. You can find out more about what Ken Levine has in mind for Infinite by checking out our most recent video interview with the co-founder of Irrational Games.

    You know, I've always been interested in voice acting. But that's just a farfetched dream. Still, I'm REALLY liking Troy Baker, quite possibly more than Nolan North. He's a FANTASTIC actor, and he's played in a ton of roles I never even knew he played in--most of which I knew the role, and so it hit me as awesome. Things seem to be shaping up quite nicely, and I'm really, REALLY excited for the game, especially its focus on characterization.

    Ken Levine is a genius. Also, I love how the voice actors really understand the character they're playing, and all the intricacies that comes with. As opposed to: here are your lines; read them. I love Irrational because they add in a lot of aspects games don't usually touch. Things like politics, social classes, beliefs and ideology. These to me make Irrational much more than just a game developer. Can't wait for Infinite.

    Levine looks a lot like Booker... On a side note, I cannot wait for this game. Color, emotion, depth, etc. are things I don't see in games nowadays (it's mostly guns and explosions). Definitely pre-ordering when I have the chance to.
