''[=BioShock Infinite=]'' is the third game in the ''Franchise/BioShock'' series, taking place in 1912.

Booker [=DeWitt=] is a washed-up ex-PinkertonDetective whose gambling debts catch up to him and force him to accept [[OneLastJob one final chance]] to wipe the slate clean. He finds himself sent to Columbia, [[FloatingContinent a floating city]] that was once the pride of the United States before it went rogue and became a sovereign city. There, he must extract a young woman named Elizabeth and bring her unharmed to his {{Mysterious Employer}}s in New York.

But all is not well in the city of Columbia, once heralded as an embodiment of the AmericanDream. Tension is bubbling under the surface between two opposing factions: The Founders, an [[{{Eagleland}} ultra-nationalist, xenophobic and fundamentalist ruling class]] led by "Father" Zachary Hale Comstock; and the Vox Populi (led by the radical Daisy Fitzroy), a movement who once sought fair and just working conditions for the underclass of Columbia, but has [[HeWhoFightsMonsters since degenerated]] into [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized a terrorist group]] fuelled by [[BombThrowingAnarchist blind hatred]] and bent on shooting everything on sight.

Booker soon discovers that Elizabeth holds an incredible power within her, one that Father Comstock is determined to keep under his control. They must work together to escape the powderkeg that is Columbia, all while evading the dreaded [[TheDreaded Songbird]]: [[ImplacableMan a deranged robotic guardian determined to stop Elizabeth from ever leaving]].

Multiple {{DLC}}s have been released. The first is ''Clash in the Clouds'', which is not a story continuation, instead taking the form of four arena maps where Booker and Elizabeth square off against fifteen waves of enemies and face optional challenges. It also allows the unlocking of concept art, music and other supplementary material. This DLC costs $4.99.

The second DLC pack is ''Burial at Sea'', a two-part story DLC which takes place in Rapture with alternate versions of Booker and Elizabeth as main characters. Part One was released on November 12, 2013, for $14.99. The trailer for the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-M5Tbos3M1g&oref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D-M5Tbos3M1g&has_verified=1 second part]] has been released, along with a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RL4BOXGJzI&oref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D6RL4BOXGJzI&has_verified=1 Behind the Scenes]] video. Part Two was released on March 26, 2014, for $15.00.
The Season Pass includes all {{DLC}} packs and costs $19.99 and includes some bonus content, including reskinned guns and [[BribingYourWayToVictory five free Infusions]]. A good deal for those who intend on getting both ''Burial at Sea'' episodes.

Columbia appears as a stage in ''VideoGame/PlaystationAllStarsBattleRoyale'' along with the original ''[=BioShock=]'''s Big Daddy as a playable character.
