From Amazon Games and Bandai Namco Online, Blue Protocol has today been confirmed for released in Western markets in 2023, as the free-to-play multiplayer online action role-player gets set to hit an all-new market.
Releasing in Europe, North America, South America, Australia and New Zealand, Blue Protocol will launch on Xbox Series X|S, PS5 and PC in the second half of 2023. You’ll also find a Closed Beta running on PC earlier in the year.
“Blue Protocol is a beautifully crafted game; it’s like an anime come to life,” said Christoph Hartmann, VP, Amazon Games. “Bandai Namco Online has created a world of the highest quality with a compelling story that will build community and immerse players in an action-packed adventure. As anime continues to rise in popularity globally, we look forward to bringing Blue Protocol to players in the West next year.”
Blue Protocol will take players on a heroic journey through Regnas, a world teetering on the brink of destruction after millennia of conflict and technology overuse. From there players must unite and harness the mysterious light called Flux to defeat powerful foes. To help them do so, they’ll be able to fully customize their character, and choose from five unique classes at launch: the sturdy Blade Warden, the valiant Twin Striker, the versatile Keen Strider, the multifaceted Spell Weaver, or the damage-dealing Foe Breaker. Aided by Echoes, mystical summoned creatures with powerful attacks, players will unlock their memories and fight to save the world.
“Amazon’s commitment to quality and attention to detail in bringing Blue Protocol to new audiences is exemplary,” said Sokichi Shimooka, executive producer of Blue Protocol at Bandai Namco Online Inc. “The Amazon Games team’s deep expertise in operating multiplayer games, combined with Amazon’s publishing resources and transmedia opportunities, made them the ideal publisher for Blue Protocol in the West. We’re excited to work together to bring players an incredible experience.”
