Sherlock Holmes investigates the PlayStation 4
Focus Home Interactive has announced that Frogwares’ Crimes & Punishments: Sherlock Holmes will be released on the PlayStation 4 in early 2014. To celebrate the release, Focus Home Interactive has released three PS4 screenshots.
“Crimes & Punishments: Sherlock Holmes” is the latest Sherlock Holmes investigation game from Frogwares studio. In this upcoming game Frogwares are switching from their in-house engine to the Epic Unreal Engine 3. According to the PS4 announcement, the change of game engine will not only improve the graphics, but also offer new investigation techniques and 14 game mechanics. Here is what the official press release said regarding new game mechanics.
“From the opening of each of the eight 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.”
If you aren’t looking at getting a PlayStation 4, the game will also be available on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in early 2014.
