Welcome to the Western Pacific! Beyond Blue is Available Now on PC, Xbox One, and PS4

Become a deep-sea explorer in this interactive lens into our wondrous ocean.

Phoenix, AZ – June 11, 2020 — Inspired by and featuring content from Blue Planet II, E-Line Media’s Beyond Blue launches today! The science-driven ocean adventure is available for $19.99 on Steam, the Epic Game Store, Humble Bundle, IndieGala, Nuuvem, Xbox One, and the Playstation Store. Following up the BAFTA award-winning Never Alone, which tapped into Alaskan Native culture via inclusive collaboration with the Iñupiat, Beyond Blue is the next game in E-Line Media’s effort to deliver gaming experiences that harness the power of games to help players understand and shape their world.

“Working directly with some of the world’s leading ocean researchers was truly inspiring,” says Michael Angst, CEO and Creative Director. “We found their passion for the ocean’s beauty and complexity infectious and their observations about how rapidly it is changing sobering. We tried to craft an experience that immerses players in the beauty of the ocean and channel their scientific insights into a story that is hopefully accessible for anyone who wants to peer deeper into our planets beating blue heart.”

 

Beyond Blue features eight unique dives where players will use advanced technology to document the different species they encounter, track changes to the ecosystem, and unravel the mystery of a pod of whales that have experienced a brand new addition to the family. As you listen to their beautiful songs, there’s something disrupting their environment and you’re going to get to the bottom of it.
