E-Line Media announced the Beyond Blue release date for PC, PS4, and Xbox One during the week of World Oceans Day. During their Earth Day 2020 livestream on Wednesday, the company set a summer release date of June 8, 2020. Across multiple dives, Beyond Blue draws players into a science-driven adventure that is a meld of E-Line Media’s gaming expertise and the insight of scientists like Dr. Samantha Joye, one of the foremost oceanographers in the world. Beyond Blue is also inspired by and features content from Blue Planet II.
“We are extremely excited to share Beyond Blue with everyone,” said Michael Angst, CEO of E-Line Media and Creative Director. “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.”
The game features eight unique dives where players will use advanced technology to document the different species they encounter, track changes to the ecosystem, and unravel the mystery of a pod of whales that have experienced a brand-new addition to the family.
A first look is also available now on Apple Arcade for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple TV, and Mac.
