Irrational Games has turned its
spotlight on the Siren, the final “Heavy Hitter” scheduled to
shatter windows and stir up spirits in BioShock Infinite. Sure, she
may not look all that intimidating at first glance, but this is one
spooky diva you don't want to piss off. Learn how the Siren can turn
any battle into a nightmare in the studio's latest enemy trailer:
The Siren possesses the ability to
raise fallen foes with her voice, and make players doubly paranoid
about turning their back on the corpses of Columbia.
“One of your challenges is going to
be: who do I deal with?” explained Irrational Games creative
director Ken Levine. “Do I deal with the Siren, because if I kill
her, all the enemies she brought back to life will also return to
their graves. Or do I deal with the guys who are actually shooting
me. And I think that’s one of the real tensions that you have in
Levine added the Siren was included in
BioShock Infinite as an homage to the spiritual movement that swept
through western society at the turn of the century. That's all well
and scholarly, but we're guessing players will be too creeped out by
her appearance to ruminate on the game's social commentary.
