Booker meets Elizabeth and fights a Handyman in BioShock Infinite's VGA trailer

Samit Sarkar (he/him) is Polygon’s deputy managing editor. He has more than 15 years of experience covering video games, movies, television, and technology.

A brand-new BioShock Infinite trailer premiered at tonight's Spike Video Game Awards, giving us a glimpse at the moment when protagonist Booker DeWitt first meets Elizabeth, as well as a battle with a Handyman.

Elizabeth is immediately suspicious of DeWitt and seems to be shocked that he's corporeal. When he says he can give her a way out of her imprisonment in the floating city of Columbia, she doesn't believe him — until he produces a key. That's when her handler comes calling, and she tells DeWitt to hide.

The trailer shifts to a fight that takes place along Columbia's Sky-Hook system, with DeWitt using Vigors like Murder of Crows against the enemies he encounters. Elizabeth helps out with ammo as DeWitt takes on airships with grenade launchers, and when a Handyman shows up, he has to switch up his tactics to stay alive.

BioShock Infinite developer Irrational Games announced today a delay of another month: It is now set for release on Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 26, 2013. Don't miss our hands-on preview.
