The rail shooter Blue Estate, based on the comic books from Viktor Kalvachev has been announced by Focus for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The dark comedy shooter, already available for PC/Leap Motion, will use Microsoft's Kinect and the gyroscopic features of Sony's pad. It will be out later this year.
HESAW AND FOCUS HOME INTERACTIVE UNVEIL BLUE ESTATE
Buckle up for one helluva ride!
HESAW and Focus Home Interactive are proud to present Blue Estate, the darkly funny rail shooter based on the Eisner Award-nominated Blue Estate comic books from Viktor Kalvachev. Designed from the ground up to exploit the unprecedented accuracy and precision of Kinect for Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and the gyroscopic featuresof the new PlayStation®4 controller, Blue Estate offers slick wit and punishing violence through a genuinely fun and intuitive control system, all set in an eye-popping technicolor mob world.
In Blue Estate, the players will play as Tony Luciano, the homicidal maniac son of LA's crime boss Don Luciano, and Clarence, a broke ex-navy seal who has been hired to clean up Tony's mess. While Tony wages war with the Sik gang in an attempt to get back his kidnapped "Helen of Troy", Clarence has to try to end that war against increasing odds.
While experiencing the smoothness of motion control in a rail shooter, using the unique motion sensor capabilities of the PlayStation®4 and Xbox One®, the player will enter a fight for his life against the most absurd and dangerous enemies, such as scar covered champions that fight-to-the-death, Tony's own hair and Chihuahuas that are too happy to see you. Players are given a series of primary and secondary weapons to help make their way through the hilariously perilous missions which will come in handy defeating the bosses who'll try to end your game and your life. But sometimes firepower isn't enough, so think before shooting and use cover to prepare your strategy, reload often, and try not to get turned into grated cheese.
A killing spree is always better when shared, and that's why Blue Estate offers the opportunity for a second player to join the fun, through a cooperative mode where every headshot counts to show who's the best trigger in da house!
More information, screenshots and videos of Blue Estate will be revealed during the coming months!

@crookedmind: what? How did you come to that conclusion? (1 Hour ago)
@crookedmind: that's an over generalization if ever i saw one. SOME games are based on lootcrates, that's about the extent of it. (2 Hours ago)

@KORNdog: Grift just doesn't want to admit it, because his orgasm game is based on lootcrates. (4 Hours ago)
What bothers me most is it truly is creating gambling habits in small kids that also play these games (12 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: exactly, it’s nothing short of predatory. It’s literally using reasearch about the chemical reactions of the human brain to get people to spend more money than they want to (12 Hours ago)
