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.
