Formerly one of 2012's most anticipated games, BioShock Infinite will hopefully be a highlight of February, 2013. But a game out of the public eye can be a game we begin to worry about. What can assuage concern? Not box art. Not models. No, we need to see gameplay. And we need to play this game.

Courtesy of the folks behind Spike's Video Game Awards, we've got seven tantalizing seconds—hey, it's something!—of new BioShock Infinite gameplay for you to enjoy.

Pretty cool, yes?

You can see the full thing during the VGAs which air on Friday on Spike at 9pm ET / 6pm PT. The VGAs are both an awards show and a showcase for many of the big games planned for release next year. Expect to see full, new trailers for The Last of Us, Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2, and Gears of War: Judgement . You can watch super-short teasers for those trailers here.

Infinite is eligible for fan voting for the Most Anticipated Game award. Vote for it, if you want GTA V, Tomb Raider, South Park: The Stick of Truth and The Last of Us to lose.

Love or hate the VGAs, they should produce a fair amount of excitement on Friday. We'll be covering them. You might even see one of us on them (on the second-screen version of the show at least).

BioShock Infinite will be out on February 26 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on
