This is a friendly reminder that the BioShock launch trailer will premiere tonight on Spike TV. It will premiere during the 9pm hour, during the show The Kill Point. Plus, right after the premiere, Geoff Keighley will have a surprise announcement. Geoff tells me that all the Bioshock goodness will hit around 9:45pm ET (and then at 9:45p PT for west coasters.)
Expect the HD version to appear on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace shortly thereafter.
I’m calling demo!
EDIT: I be Right! Demo is up now! Major Nelson says:
Content: BioShock Demo
Availability: Not available in Japan
Dash Text: Welcome to Rapture with the official demo to BioShock, the “genetically enhanced” first person shooter. BioShock is a shooter unlike any you’ve ever played, loaded with weapons and tactics never seen. You’ll have an arsenal at your disposal from simple revolvers to rocket launchers and flame throwers, but you’ll also be forced to genetically alter your DNA to create an even more deadly weapon – you. Injectable Plasmids give you ungodly powers: blast electrical currents into water to electrocute multiple enemies, freeze them solid and obliterate them with the swing of a wrench, or create a swarm of attack hornets from your own mutated flesh. BioShock is that rare game in which Brainpower is as valuable as Firepower. You’ll need plenty of both to get out alive.
