Blues & Bullets Episode 1 E3 Trailer

The last time we heard about Blues & Bullets, we brought you a dev diary back in May

Not one to be left out of the E3 festivities, ID@Xbox developer A Crowd of Monsters has released their latest trailer for the first entry in the episodic title, a surreal and stylistic look at some rendering assets while the main character, Eliot Ness, converses with a mob boss about his kidnapped granddaughter.  The dichotomy between the disdain for the mob boss and the desire to rescue a helpless little girl is front and center.

The trailer moves forward into some gameplay, showing us the types of film-noire environments players will explore in this first episode.   You may even detect a hint of Bioshock inspiration to one of the areas shown, the interior of what appears to be an airship of some sort.  We also catch a brief glimpse of some QTE action as well as third-person gunplay.  Check out the trailer for yourself below, and try to decide if everything is always as black and white as it seems.

Blues & Bullets begins its noir tale with Episode 1 later this year.

I've been gaming practically my whole life, starting around when I was 5 or 6 years old with an Atari 2600 and progressing through nearly every console ever released apart from the Wii U. I'm a completionist by nature, but am trying to move away from chasing every-higher gamerscore and just focusing on enjoying the great games that are all around me. We'll see how successful I am. I've been on TA since 2009 but have become much more active on the site in the past couple of years, and look forward to seeing it grow now that the XB1 app is getting it some much-deserved exposure!
