Publisher E-Line Media has announced Beyond Blue, “that invites players to venture far below the surface of our vast and largely uncharted ocean to sense the soul of some of our world’s most magnificent and intelligent creatures.” It will launch for “PC and consoles” in early 2019.
Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:
Explore and uncover the secrets of Earth’s last uncharted frontier.
Set in the near future, players will probe the mysteries of our ocean through the eyes of Mirai, the lead on a newly formed research team that will use groundbreaking technologies to see, hear, and sense the ocean in a more meaningful way than has ever been attempted. The game will feature both an evocative narrative and high level resource management, challenging the player to make high-stakes decisions and prioritize which objectives can be successfully achieved during the crew’s expedition.
Embracing the same inclusive development process that was used to create Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna), E-Line’s BAFTA award-winning game about Alaska Native culture, the company paired world class game makers with some of the field’s leading ocean experts to craft an experience that reflects the awesome wonder and unbounded mystery that infuses our planet’s beating blue heart.
