Default Call of the Sea - Series X, Xbox One, and PC


One of the more unusual games during Microsoft's Xbox Series X stream was Call of the Sea, a non-violent mystery adventure set on a tropical island in the South Pacific in the 1930s.

In it, you play as a lady called Norah, voiced by Cissy Jones from Firewatch and Walking Dead Season One, who's on the trail of her missing husband. He went on an expedition to the island and never returned. It's a first-person game based around puzzle solving.











Call of the Sea is published by Raw Fury and is the debut game of Spanish studio Out of the Blue, based in Madrid. It's an eye-grabbing game with lush tropical forests and bright beaches, all brought to life with vivid Sea of Thieves-like colouring. It's in this setting we will apparently uncover a weird and otherworldly mystery.

Looks great.

Call of the Sea is coming to both Xbox Series X and Xbox One, and PC, in late 2020. And it's coming to Xbox Game Pass at launch.

This game did look great but i put it down to the art style usually allowing that. Kind of like an animated movie in Blu Ray and UHD not getting much different i guess between gens. Maybe this or similar games will be multi-platform.

I just think that's the art style. Depending on what they have around launch, I'll Game Pass it.

That reminds me of Sea of Solitude.

Played through it this weekend, it was pretty fun and I liked the story. I figured out all of the puzzles except one, the end of chapter 4 confused me for whatever reason (so I looked it up).

I think the art direction looks really nice for this game, but I was surprised that it had some framerate issues on Series X. Anyway, it was a nice distraction for a few hours. Good addition to Game Pass.
