The Testament of Sherlock Holmes To Reveal the Darker Side of the Detective

on December 21, 2011 9:30 AM

The new video from The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, developed for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, shows a new side of the detective I’m not sure I like. Forget Robert Downey Jr in drag, the video hints at “reprehensible acts” Doctor Watson witnesses that change his admiration for the famous detective into hatred. Which might seem pretty strong, but considering one of the screenshots shows Watson pointing a gun at him, perhaps not.

The game has a darker ambiance then previous ones, and is more focused on Holmes and his motives. You play the game as both Holmes and Watson as you attempt to unravel the mystery.

The game will be released in early 2012. See screenshots and the video after the cut.
