Sometimes, ordinary isn’t enough.
If that is something you find yourself saying when playing a game, how about fighting against “the most absurd and dangerous enemies” that Blue Estate has to offer, such as scar-covered champions, your character’s own hair and some very happy Chihuahuas?
Blue Estate is an upcoming rail shooter arriving February 18 on Xbox One for $12.99. Its story is about Tony Luciano, the homicidal manic son of an LA mob boss, and Clarence, who is a broke ex-Navy Seal out to clean up Tony’s mess. Tony sets out to rescue his dancer, Cherry Popz, from the Silk Brothers’ gang, and Clarence is out to stop gang war.
Developer HESAW has stated that the game was designed from the ground up to fully integrate the Xbox One Kinect for motion detection, but the game can also be played with a controller. Blue Estate promises dark and funny humor to go along with gameplay based on the Eisner Award-nominated Blue Estate comic books from Viktor Kalvachev. The game will also feature a local co-operative mode, so a second player will be able to join in on the fun.
HESAW adds that “All Xbox Live Gold members can also take advantage of a special discount of 20%!” But it’s unknown whether $12.99 is the price before or after the discount.
