Blue Estate has actually already been released on the PS4, the launch trailer for which you can watch above, but don’t worry because the Kinect 2 version of the “darkly funny” rail shooter is coming soon to Xbox One and will be playable at this year’s Paris Games Week. If that’s sounds familiar it’s because it’s exactly what I said about Gamescom, but unfortunately Blue Estate wasn’t there in the end for some reason. Hopefully it will actually be at PGW 2014 since the developer HESAW have actually put out a press release this time, not just a tweet, which you can read below:

Àbout Blue Estate – the game
Blue Estate is a darkly funny on-rail shooter developed by HESAW, based on the Eisner Award-nominated Blue Estate comic books from Viktor Kalvachev. Blue Estate for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One® offers slick wit and punishing violence, all set in an eye-popping technicolor mob world.
In Blue Estate, the player takes on the role of Tony Luciano, the psychopathic son of Los Angeles godfather, and Clarence, an ex-soldier who has been hired as the Don’s hitman. While Tony wages war trying to rescue Cherry Popz, the star dancer of the club he owns, Clarence tries to fight them.
While experiencing the smoothness of motion control in an on-rail shooter, using gyroscopic features from the PlayStation Dualshock® 4 and the Xbox KinectTM device, you enter a fight for your life against the most absurd and dangerous enemies, ranging from the Asian Triad and Jamaican drug dealers to Tony’s uncooperative haircut and even an army of Chihuahuas. To help you make your way through a variety of hilariously perilous missions on offer, you’ll be given special secondary weapons along with your main guns, in order to make bigger holes in your enemies. These weapons will also be helpful defeating the “original” (for lack of a better word!) bosses who’ll try to put a spanner in the works. However, sometimes, firepower is no substitute for brains, so think before acting and use cover to prepare your strategy, reload, and avoid being turned into a colander.
Bloodshed is always better when shared, and that’s why Blue Estate offers the opportunity for a second player to join the massacre, through a cooperative mode where every headshot counts to show who’s the best trigger in da house!
