Uncover the secrets of Earth’s last uncharted frontier.
E-Line Media is proud to announce Beyond Blue, a game that invites players to venture far below the surface of our vast and largely uncharted ocean to sense the soul of some our world’s most magnificent and intelligent creatures. Set in the near future, players will probe the mysteries of our ocean through the eyes of Miria, 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 involve a rich story and and resource management, challenging the player to make high-stakes decisions and prioritise which objectives can be successfully achieved during the crew’s expedition.
The original concept for the game aspired from E-Line Media’s previous title, Never Alone which caught the attention of BBC Studios as their previous documentary Blue Planet II explored the depths of the sea. Here is what Bradley Crookes, Head of Digital Entertainment & Games at BBC Studios had to say about the collaboration and E-Line Media’s previous title.
“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 releasing sometime in 2019 with both a console and PC launch.
