E-line Media, the developer behind the charming Never Alone, has announced Beyond Blue, an ocean exploration game – with a twist.
Taking place in the near future, the game sees Mirai, the boss of a new research unit, exploring the briny depths. New technology allows them to “sense the soul” of the sea’s creatures, and interact with the sea in a “more meaningful way.”
E-line Media has teamed with ocean experts for Beyond Blue, and also the BBC. This means players can unlock footage from Blue Planet II as they progress.
BBC Studios’ Head of Digital Entertainment & Games, Bradley Crooks said:
“Inspired by the way the Cultural Insight videos inside Never Alone brought resonance and context to a game infused with Alaska Native culture, we reached out to E-Line to explore the potential for a creative collaboration on Blue Planet II. We think there’s great synergy in the way E-Line make their games and our own approach to programme making where we care passionately about the subject matter and want to help people better understand the world in which they live.”
Beyond Blue will be released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019. Check out the teaser trailer below:
