Who’s that dashingly debonaire gentleman rocking the popped collar and pinstripe pants on the front cover of EGM magazine’s latest digital issue?
Why, it’s none other than Booker DeWitt, protagonist of BioShock: Infinite, making his public debut. In addition to giving us our first glimpse of the disgraced Pinkerton agent turned private investigator, the accompanying wanted poster lets us know that DeWitt is a 37-years old white male, 6 feet in height and weighing 195 pounds, with green eyes and a scar above the right eye. And you should stare into those sexy, scarred eyes while you can. The cover, a homage to Uncanny X-Men #141 according to director Ken Levine, may be the first and last time you get to admire the DeWitt’s turn-of-the-century style.
Jack, the protagonist from BioShock 1 and 2, was notoriously camera shy. Other than his iconic chain-tattooed wrists, he didn’t flash the goods in the first two games, which unfolded largely in first-person perspective, though there were a few blurry security photos to be found floating around Rapture.
