Crimes & Punishments: Discover the Darker Side of London in New Trailer 'Pretty Little Crimes'
Having explored some of Holmes' skills in previous gameplay videos of Crimes & Punishments - your new investigation game coming from September 30 on PS4®, PS3®, Xbox One®, Xbox 360® and PC - Frogwares and Focus Home Interactive today introduce the complexity of not the cases, but the characters of Crimes & Punishments. It is a trailer about empathy, blame, and punishment - not of the suspect, but of Sherlock himself, as he lives with the decisions made throughout the game.

Crimes & Punishments introduces moral changes to the Sherlock Holmes series. Not only are you charged with selecting the suspect who committed the crime, but also what to do with him, either handing him to the police or empathizing with his or her situation, setting them free after a dressing down in true Holmes style. Not only can you commit any of up to five suspects, but you can also commit two - then, your moral choice will follow, and their fate will be left in your hands, with all the responsibility on your conscience.

You can watch our previous gameplay trailers here, and, if you wish to get a more in depth look at some of the London-based locations you'll be inspecting this September, watch last week's Location Trailer!

His skills, your wits - become Sherlock Holmes in Crimes & Punishments from September 30 on PS4®, PS3®, Xbox One®, Xbox 360®, and PC.

About Crimes & Punishments
Crimes & Punishments marks the most important stage in the Sherlock Holmes series. The decision by Frogwares studios to switch from the in-house engine to the Epic Unreal Engine 3 enables a much richer, more immersive and detailed rendering of both the environments and characters.

But the change of game engine has not only improved the graphics; new investigation techniques have been developed and the game can now offer 14 game mechanics. From the opening of each of the six investigations up to the arrest of the culprits and the moral dilemmas faced by the players, the new game mechanics convey the feeling of BEING Sherlock Holmes. Players will therefore be able to exploit the incredible gifts and talents for which he is renowned, such as his ability to guess the details of an individual's life simply by observing them, or to imagine and reconstruct a past event by studying the key features of a crime scene.
