The first two episodes of developer A Crowd Of Monsters' noir adventure title Blues and Bullets are now available on PlayStation 4.
In Blues and Bullets, players don the trenchcoat of Eliot Ness, a former detective who gets dragged back into the criminal underworld of the fictional city of Santa Esperanza as he attempts to unravel the truth behind a strange new kidnapping case.
Episode One has players controling Ness, now the owner of a diner in Santa Esperanza, as he is drawn into a new case that will change him forever. The player must choose carefully how they interact with witnesses, suspects, and companions. Santa Esperanza itself is a dark, rotten city that gets more rotten with every passing day. It’s a place where assassins, smugglers and bullies are free to roam the streets, with corruption so rampant that it is nearly impossible to be honest and loyal to the law, defend the weak or get away from the cesspit the city has slowly turned into.
The second episode, titled "Shake the Hive", sees players don the coat of Eliot Ness once again, as he dives deeper and deeper into the conspiracy that he discovered in Episode One. Players can expect to visit diverse locales including a submarine, learn more about Ness' past, meet new characters, explore more complex crime scenes, and enjoy improved gun combat. As with the first episode, the players’ choices will have an impact on the storyline.
“We were overwhelmed by the positive response to Blues and Bullets on Steam and Xbox One and are excited that Playstation 4 players can now play both Episodes One and Two today”, said Ramon Nafria, Producer at A Crowd of Monsters. “We are hard at work on the remaining three episodes, so stay tuned for more news about those in the coming months”.
Blues and Bullets Episode 1: The End of Peace and Episode 2: Shake The Hiveare now available for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC for $4.99 USD. They are also available as part of the Blues and Bullets Season Pass bundles.
