E-Line Media has announced that Beyond Blue, its highly anticipated ocean adventure will release on June 8th, 2020. In order to celebrate this announcement, the publisher released a new trailer that you can find below.
As the press release reads, this trailer showcases additional gameplay footage of oceanic exploration.
Beyond Blue features the scientific support of real-world exploration and outreach initiative, OceanX. The game tells the story of a crew of scientists, led by oceanographers Mirai and André.
Players will step into the shoes of Mirai, as they use technology to better understand the urgent threats facing these blue depths. At the same time, Beyond Blue will feature never-before-seen footage licensed from BBC Studios’ Blue Planet II. This footage will expand upon the game’s story. It will also educate players about the social and emotional lives of these whales.
Michael Angst, CEO, E-Line Media, Creative Director for Beyond Blue, said:
“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. These range 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.”
