After getting hands-on at multiple events, it seems like we’ve been waiting an age for Beyond Blue, but now as the build up to World Oceans Week prepares to increase, we see E-line Media confirm the Xbox One, PS4 and PC release date.

Now available on Apple Arcade, it is the Xbox One, PS4 and PC versions of Beyond Blue that we are mostly interested in, and during World Oceans Week which kicks off on the 8th June, the game will arrive.

Ever since the brilliant Never Alone delivered an immersive gameplay experience alongside educational properties, we’ve been keeping a beady eye on what E-line Media produce. And with Beyond Blue comes the promise to head under the waves to explore the vast ocean, with content featuring, and inspired by the BBC’s Blue Planet II.

Set against the near-future backdrop of Earth’s oceans, Beyond Blue features the scientific support of real-world exploration and outreach initiative, OceanX, and embracing its minimally invasive exploration techniques. It tells the story of a crew of scientists – led by oceanographers Mirai and André – who set out to test their “Ocean Sense Network,”. It is this which has the power to literally shine a light on the unexplored depths of the ocean as they unravel its endless mysteries.

Beyond Blue wil focus on the Western Pacific Ocean amid a large multispecies gathering of cetaceans and other creatures as players step into the shoes (and flippers) of Mirai, utilising technology to better understand the urgent threats facing these blue depths. But it’s not just about the gameplay, and much like in Never Alone, Beyond Blue will feature never-before-seen footage, this time licensed from BBC Studios’ Blue Planet II, expanding upon the game’s story and educating players about the social and emotional lives of these whales – the creatures with the biggest brains on the planet.

“We are extremely excited to share Beyond Blue with everyone,” said Michael Angst, CEO, E-Line Media, Creative Director for Beyond Blue. “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.

“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.”

If you wish to know even more than the latest trailer should be taken in too. It’s right down below. Give it a watch and then hold tight for June to roll around.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
