Blue Estate announced for PS4 and Xbox One
Those of you who attended GDC may remember Focus Home Interactive's and HESAW's Blue Estate, a darkly funny rail shooter based on the Eisner Award-nominated Blue Estate comic books from Viktor Kalvachev. If you saw it, great. If not, then this is all brand new to you.
Blue Estate has been designed from the ground up for use with the Xbox One Kinect and PS4's gyroscopic features. It offers "slick wit and punishing violence through a genuinely fun and intuitive control system, all set in an eye-popping technicolor mob world." In the game, you 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. Tony wages war with the Sik gang to get back his kidnapped "Helen of Troy," while Clarence tries to end that war.
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.
