Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Bioshock 4. - Charly Cohen
Bioshock 4 Opening is the opening cut scene in Bioshock 4.
The screen is black, and multiple radio frequencies can be heard, however, one can hear one speech very clearly: Houston, the eagle has landed - (static) - That's one small step for a man.... One giant leap for mankind. - (static) Houston, we have a - (static) We all make choices, but in the end, our choices, make us. - (static) C'mon, be a man, make a choice! - (static) Goodbye, love. (shotgun shot can be heard). The blackness turns to a bright light, and then this happens: The camera is flying through the air, moving towards a bright, magnificent city, high in the sky, floating using what appears to be oversized propellers and huge jet engines, until finally the camera reaches the city. Stomping is heard, and the camera shakes, and a familiar shadow is seen. Just as the camera is about to turn around, a woman's voice says, "Would you like some more champagne, sir?" It is then revealed that one was just in a daydream, and that you are in first person view of an unknown protagonist. "Sure, why not," the protagonist replies. She begins pouring the protagonist a glass, when all of a sudden the screen shakes. "whoa, what was that?" The woman asks, a concerned look on her face. " I'll find out," says the protagonist, and get's up, runs out a door, and it is revealed the protagonist is on a cruise ship, and that the ship is heading straight towards a light house. "Oh shit," the protagonist says, and the ship crashes into the lighthouse. "Bioshock 4" then appears on the screen, and the screen fades to blackness.
- The speaking heard at the beginning of the cut scene is, indeed, from the missions Apollo 11 and 13.
- The speaking is also from Andrew Ryan from Bioshock, and Jake Steller and Harvey Donald from Bioshock: Armageddon.
- The "daydream" at the beginning of the cut scene is based on the city Columbia from BioShock Infinite.
- The cruise ship crashing into the lighthouse is a reference to the crash of the Titanic. In this case, the light house acts as the iceberg which sunk the Titanic on it's maiden voyage.
