I'm gonna have to go with either space or core of the earth. While Space seems pretty cool, a fuckin city inside molten magma (because its underground) would be nuts! What would you guys like to see?
The next Bioshock location after Infinite?
Obviously it is going to be made by a different team - set in Columbia some years after the original Infinite and is going to be called Bioshock: Infinite 2.
Hopefully it will be something different than that, I would like to see something approaching WWII or Cold War era Bioshock.
Ken Levine takes the BioShock series to the faraway land of dubstep. For his latest masterpiece, the team at Irrational build a special controller that connects to your pupils and vibrates for every wub. And every time there's a drop, the controller tricks your brain into thinking it's falling, bringing forth a new age of panic attacks and epilepsy. The controller's named Panic Causes Play or PCP for short.
How about Columbia and Rapture put together? No? OK, I don't like the idea either. I was actually thinking about it as well, and I don't know where they'd take it next; I don't imagine they'd do another space station since there's already System Shock 2, but maybe. Perhaps an unknown, hidden landmass, somewhat similar to Azura in Gears of War. That'd certainly not seem ideal initially since it's not in the sky or under the ocean, but that could be an idea. This is all if there is going to be another Bioshock.
I don't know where it'll take place, but I'm fairly certain that upwards of 75% of the story will be told through audio logs and there'll be an ultimately meaningless moral choice/player agency system again because it's fucking Ken Levine.
Or maybe they'll change it up pretty dramatically and do Singularity style video logs.
Oh there'll probably be boring corridor crawl and combat arenas again too.
I want the next bioshock game to be open world and to take place in not just 1 ,but 3 cities! :D just think about it...not only can we explore Columbia and Rapture, but also an underground city!("possibly taking place in Russia and/or China, but who knows?)
It might also be cool if "tears" from Bioshock Infinite were to be used in this game, because in Burial at Sea episode 2, There was one part where Elizabeth had to use a machine to open a tear leading to Columbia for her to collect a hair sample, then return to Rapture to give it to Suchong. If possible the same machine could be used to travel between those 3 cities as well as different times and dimensions where they take place!
As for the story, the game can be the sequel to Bioshock 2, since Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea was a prequel to Bioshock 1. Personally I also think it would be interesting to see Eleanor Lamb from Bioshock 2 as either the helper of the protagonist like Elizabeth in Infinite, or (even better) to have Eleanor the protagonist herself! :)
It could start off with Eleanor going to the underground city called the Underworld-topia( which takes place under the border of Russia and the eastern kingdoms like China, Korea, India, etc)after receiving a strange signal coming from that area.
Later, after entering Underworld-topia she a find a machine called The Tear-o-matic. When she activates it, she could either go back to Rapture( before it fell, of course XD) or explore Columbia, to even later, to go to the other city(which could be Columbia, after Rapture or the other way around) and then going back to Underworld-topia and then later repeat the process!
The year could be the same year as the wars on communism like the Cold war, vietnam war, etc!
Also, if this game were to really happen(not that I hope it will) I would frinking love that :D
I like nchan's idea to set it during the Panama–Pacific International Exposition world's fair in San Francisco in 1915. The fair itself was split into discreet sections, including "The Zone", an area for popular amusements and concessions. You could have it start during the fair when something CATASTROPHIC happens, sending everything into disarray, eventually leading the protagonist into a secret underground labyrinth. The plot could be somehow tied in to the earthquake of 1906.
Lighthouse you ask? Just north of the Marina District where the fair was held is Alcatraz Island. This bad boy (and the prison) was built in 1909.
EDIT: You could turn the formula on its head, start at the top of the lighthouse and head down and out, taking a boat to the mainland. Have the protagonist be a warden or something.
