2K describes the game as a "genetically enhanced" first-person shooter that lets players do things never before possible in the genre, such as turning "everything" into a weapon, biologically modify a character's body with plasmids, hack devices and systems, upgrade weapons and craft new ammo variants, and experiment with different battle techniques.

The demo published today plays in Rapture an "underwater utopia torn apart by civil war" that, according to the game developer, allows the player to experiment with the various weapons and plasmids.

The game will debut for the Xbox 360 and Windows PC on August 21.
