  • Ride monster waves at 5 of the world’s most iconic shorelines, from the infamous Bell’s Beach, Australia, to the extreme waves at Waimea Bay, Hawaii.
  • Become masters of the waves, learning increasingly difficult tricks along the way, from nailing kickflips and cutbacks, to landing massive aerials and navigating treacherous tubes.
  • Trick their way through 44 single player challenges, or carve up the competition online against 15 other players across 3 different online game modes.
  • Rank up and unlock thousands of customisation options to stamp their own style on their journey to become a surf legend.
  • Get that real surfing feel thanks to the expert input and support from renowned UK surfer Tom Lowe.

Blackwood Crossing coming to Xbox

Blackwood Crossing

I like it when UK based developers announce a new game. It fills me a small sense of pride that we can produce so many amazing titles from out nation of tea-drinking folk. Brighton based PaperSeven have today announced a new title heading to Xbox One.

Blackwood Crossing is a story-driven first-person adventure game. This will explore the relationship between Scarlett and Finn. These orphaned siblings are growing apart as Scarlett comes of age and leaves childhood behind. When they cross paths with a mysterious figure, a seemingly ordinary train ride evolves into a magical story of life, love and loss.

PaperSeven are a newly formed studio made up of and founded by former Disney Black Rock Studio developers. The studio’s aim is to create games with emotional themes to take players on meaningful yet unpredictable journeys.Blackwood Crossing looks to be ticking those boxes from very early on in the Studio’s life.

Co-founder of PaperSeven, Alice Guy;

This is our first game since forming PaperSeven and we are immensely proud to be announcing it. There’s been some fantastic narrative adventure games coming out in recent times – we’re hoping to take a place at this table whilst offering something different to what’s come before. Blackwood Crossing is evidence of our desire to explore experiences with depth and meaning, and create characters that challenge the often cliched gaming landscape.

PaperSeven will be partnering up with Vision Games Publishing to bring Blackwood Crossing to Xbox One in 2016. There’s a little bit more about the game, here.
