The teams over at Frogwares and Focus Interactive have released the launch trailer for Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments – the sleuth ’em up coming out next week. The game has you play as the famous detective, running around Victorian London solving cases of theft and murder with your trusty sidekick Dr. Watson, and continually showing up Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard.
Using the Unreal Engine, the game allows for detailed environments and crisp character modelling as you examine people and crime scenes for clues, then evaluate what you’ve learned in the deduction system to decide whodunnit. Using disguises, performing experiments and asking the write questions will get you information, but can you make the right decision? Every case has multiple suspects and you can send the wrong person to the gallows – you better have your facts straight.
Sherlock Holmes: Crime & Punishments is out on the 30th September for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, and we’ll be bringing you our verdict then.
