How Bioshock Infinite developers created Elizabeth

by William Schwartz

With only a week to go before the release of Bioshock Infinite, Irrational Games is letting the details fly about their upcoming game.  This developer diary offers a retrospective on creating the character Elizabeth, introducing potential players to the voice and motion capture actresses for the character.

Like other games, Elizabeth will play sidekick to the game’s main character, Booker DeWitt as an A.I. companion.  Though Ken Levine and company explain that they’ve taken extra special consideration in making her feel like a living breathing companion on your journey in Infinite, and not just a lifeless husk that moseys from checkpoint to checkpoint.

Bioshock Infinite is slated for release on March 26th on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
