Blues and Bullets out now on Xbox One

A noir adventure game from A Crowd Of Monsters.

Independent developer A Crowd Of Monsters has announced that the first episode of its episodic crime noir adventure game Blues and Bullets is now available on Xbox One. Available already on Steam, Blues and Bullets is finally now out on Xbox One as part of the ID@Xbox program. Xbox One owners will take on the role of former detective Eliot Ness as he investigates, interrogates and exchanges gunfire with the criminal underworld of the fictional city of Santa Esperanza, as he simultaneously unravels the truth behind the case.

The first episode of Blues and Bullets (a season will span 5 episodes) introduces players to Eliot Ness, who now owns a diner in Santa Esperanza. Drawn into a new case that will change Ness forever, the player must investigate crime scenes and analyse clues scattered around rich, highly detailed scenarios to come up with their own conclusions on what has happened. Not everyone will be pleased with Eliot’s progress in the case, and the player’s skills will be put to the test in intense shootouts between the retired detective and a group of mysterious enemies.

Outside of shootouts, the player must choose how to interact with witnesses, suspects and companions. Every decision they make will impact the case and Ness’ relationships with other characters. These decisions add up to an intense cliffhanger at the end of each episode, putting the player at the edge of their seat.

Blues and Bullets has been penned by video games writer Josué Monchán, who was behind the script for the Runaway and Yesterday. The game introduces Doug Cockle (Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher 2 and The Witcher 3) as the voice of Eliot Ness, backed by Jules de Jongh (Faith from Mirror’s Edge) as Delphine.
