Focus Home Interactive has unveiled a new video for Crimes & Punishments showcasing this new Sherlock Holmes game developed by Frogwares. Unlike the previous adventures of Sherlock Holmes, in Crimes and Punishments you will not be a mere spectator during the detective's investigation. It is now your turn to truly become Sherlock Holmes and lead your own investigations, as 8 cases await you. 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.
This video follows Sherlock in a murder case involving a sailor, a whale harpoon and various suspects. Note that while this video may hint at one of the possible conclusions, it is but one of many potential outcomes. Depending on how your investigation progresses, you will be able to accuse different guilty parties from among your list of suspects and determine their fate.
Crimes & Punishments will be released in Q2 2014 for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
