Get a taste of what to expect from the OTT rail shooter
Hi PlayStation Readers, this is Viktor Kalvachev from HeSaw. Today is D-Day, we’re releasing our Blue Estate baby on the PlayStation Store tomorrow and we’re really, really excited about the launch so we wanted to share with you the launch trailer for the game.
And for those of you who missed our latest video, here’s a little overview about Blue Estate.
Blue Estate is a darkly funny rail shooter based on the comic books of the same name. Designed from the ground up to exploit the accuracy and precision of the gyroscopic features of the new PlayStation 4 controller, the game offers slick wit and punishing violence via a genuinely fun and intuitive control system, all set in an eye-popping technicolor mob world.
In Blue Estate, you play 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. While Tony wages war with the Sik gang in an attempt to get back his kidnapped “Helen of Troy”, Clarence has to try to end that war against increasing odds.
Harnessing the smooth motion control courtesy of the PlayStation 4’s advanced sensor, in a rail shooter, 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 all too happy to see you. You are given a series of primary and secondary weapons to help wade 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.
You can also invite a friend to join the fun, through a cooperative mode where every headshot counts to show who’s the best shot!
Blue Estate is out tomorrow with a free demo available for all PS4 players. And for as low as €19.99/£15.99 with an additional 20% off for PS Plus members, it just doesn’t get any better. Play the demo alone or with a friend in co-op mode, enjoy some good old light gun arcade action, and spread the word. Once you’ve mastered the game, you can up the next difficulty level and test your skills.
