Hi PlayStation.Blog readers, Olga here from Frogwares! As we are nearing launch, we would like to introduce our launch trailer for Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments coming to PS4 and PS3 on September 30th. Get ready to be taken on a journey through Holmes’ famous skills!
It’s now your turn to truly become Sherlock Holmes and lead your own investigation — actually, your investigations (Plural!) — as 6 captivating cases await you! Murders, disappearances, spectacular thefts, and other investigations will bring you to the cutting edge of the detective genre and these cases will be the bread and butter of this game, written in the pure tradition of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s novels.
Each case offers real freedom to players, who will have to make important moral choices instead of simply enforcing justice by the book. All decisions have an influence in the game and affect your character’s reputation in addition to having realistic, sometimes unexpected, consequences. You will have to bear the weight of your choices, as Crimes and Punishments offers an exciting system of actions/consequences that forces players to think before acting by giving true depth to every decision they make.
In Crimes and Punishments, players will embody Sherlock Holmes with a brand new look. Developers at Frogwares have abandoned the classic Sherlock Holmes inspired by the 60’s Sherlock movies, replacing him with a more modern character perfectly matching the new artistic ambitions of the title.
I hope you enjoyed the trailer, and hope you enjoy the game!
