Ho boy. Beyond Blue has a full console and PC release date! I feel like I should start this piece with that Titanic gif of Rose saying “It has been 84 years…”. We’ve been excited about E-Line Media’s latest since we played it all the way back at EGX 2017 and now it has a solid release date. Colour us excited.
Beyond Blue will launch on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One during World Oceans Week, which kicks off on 8th June 2020. The announcement comes alongside this new trailer that shows the game is going to be worth the wait:
Beyond Blue has been a solid entry on our “Indies to look forward too” lists for years. It’s easy to see why. The highly anticipated ocean adventure, inspired by and featuring content from Blue Planet II, it ” tells the story of a crew of scientists – led by oceanographers Mirai and André – who set out to test their “Ocean Sense Network,” which has the power to literally shine a light on the unexplored depths of the ocean as they unravel its endless mysteries.”. Sold.
“We are extremely excited to share Beyond Blue with everyone. We have taken care to craft a visual and audio experience that immerses players in the beauty of the ocean and the amazing creatures that inhabit it, while hopefully doing so with some interpretation and artistry. Players will explore diverse environments ranging from a sun-dappled, oasis-like atoll down through the gauzy blue ‘twilight’ zone where only the faintest amount of light reaches to the midnight of the abyssal zone, where rarely seen creatures produce their own light in an environment otherwise devoid of light.”Michael Angst, CEO, E-Line Media, Creative Director for Beyond Blue.
If you’re an Apple device user, Beyond Blue is now also available through the Apple Arcade subscription service, playable across compatible iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and Apple TV devices.
