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!
If you have an Xbox One and still not sure about Mass Effect Andromeda or just want to try it out for ten hours on March 16.....EA Access 1 month is now 1,79GBP (5 minutes ago)
they should probably beef up their PSVR production though at least a little. before people get tired of waiting. again, some places have them readily available. others have non. (48 minutes ago)
not manufacturing 40 million and expecting to sell every unit. lol. (48 minutes ago)
@MrWhite: they haven't. in some places it's been sold out, much like PSVR. they're clearly playing it safe with both. realistic expectation basically. (50 minutes ago)
Couple of million wouldn't be bad numbers. I don't think they've made a surplus amount of them in any case. Similar with the PSVR. (51 minutes ago)
i'd assume it's sold a couple million worldwide. i can't imagine it's setting the world on fire. (56 minutes ago)
@MrWhite: they released NPD numbers i think a while back. black friday maybe? i think it was something like 40% of the sales of that month were pro. 60% was slim... (57 minutes ago)
