New BioShock Infinite video details a civil war among the clouds

BioShock Infinite impressed the hell out of us at E3, even with our increasinly high expectations. One aspect of the game we find particularly exciting is the conflict happening around protagonist Booker DeWitt as he escorts Elizabeth off the soaring city of Columbia. Unlike the already ruined Rapture from BioShock, the civil war between Columbia’s leader and his rebel opponents is just getting warmed up.
