BioShock Infinite preorders come with e-book prequel and 'Industrial Revolution' pack

BioShock Infinite: Mind in Revolt

2K Games and Irrational Games announced today that the prequel e-book BioShock Infinite: Mind in Revolt is a preorder bonus for those who order the upcoming first-person shooter exclusively through Amazon.

If you'd rather read it on your Kindle without buying the game, you'll have to wait until February 12 — at which point it'll cost you $2.99. BioShock Infinite game writer Joe Fielder penned the book with creative director Ken Levine.

At such a low price, that doesn't sound like much of a preorder incentive since the game doesn't release until March 26. But the Industrial Revolution pack, which also comes free with preorders, might be.

The extra content "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."

"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,” Fielder said in a statement. “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.”
