Stocks in this article: TTWO

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 information on BioShock Infinite, become a fan on Facebook and follow Irrational Games on Twitter.

About BioShock Infinite

From the creators of the highest-rated first-person shooter of all time*, BioShock , and with over 80 editorial awards to date, BioShock Infinite puts players in the shoes of U.S. Cavalry veteran turned hired gun, Booker DeWitt. Indebted to the wrong people and with his life on the line, DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia. Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret.

BioShock Infinite is planned to launch globally on March 26, 2013 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC. For more information on  BioShock Infinite, please visit  http://www.bioshockinfinite.com.
