Following an Apple Arcade launch on April 17, single-player narrative adventure game Beyond Blue will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam during the week of World Oceans Day, which happens on June 8, developer E-Line Media announced. It will cost $19.99.
“We are extremely excited to share Beyond Blue with everyone,” said E-Line Media CEO and Beyond Blue creative director Michael Angst said in a press release. “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.”
Angst continued, “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.”
