Focus Home Interactive and Frogwares have released a teaser for the latest edition to the Sherlock Holmes series. The Crimes & Punishments teaser trailer gives you a glimpse of some of the grim murders to take place in the game to an eerily soothing tune.
Crimes & Punishments will be the first title in the series to be developed on the Epic Unreal Engine 3 rather than the in-house engine and no doubt already displays greatly improved graphics. The teaser shows off some crime scenes, suspects and a troubled Sherlock Holmes.
Unreal Engine 3 will not only improve graphics, says the development studio. According to their post on the official website new investigation techniques have been developed allowing the game to offer 14 game mechanics. This is said to give players the ability to use Sherlock’s unique gifts and talents to their full extent. For example:
“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.”
Crimes & Punishments will feature eight investigations and will release on PC, PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360. The release date is yet to be confirmed.
