New York, NY – January 22, 2013 – 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.

“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.”
