Beyond Blue Still Looks Stunning in New Underwater Gameplay Footage

Dev Partners With BBC Studios to Help Create Beyond Blue

New in-game footage of E-Line’s Media’s upcoming Beyond Blue has dropped this morning, and it’s already shaping up to be the ultimate underwater exploration game. Check out the short but sweet trailer below.

Seen in the trailer is the game’s most beautiful region yet, the atoll. This atoll has formed around the rim of an extinct volcano that has fallen below sea level where it houses a “thriving and diverse collection of coral species.”

In addition to releasing new gameplay footage, E-Line Media has announced that they¬†have partnered with BBC Studios to help make Beyond Blue. The game will feature exclusive, never-before-seen footage from the documentary series, Blue Planet II, which¬†launches on Netflix this week. Beyond Blue is also the spiritual successor to the developer’s last game, Never Alone, a narrative-based puzzle-platformer released in 2014 that garnered positive praise and received a BAFTA award.
