“This is Sherlock” Trailer Introduces The Infamous Detective in Crimes and Punishments

on January 31, 2014 1:29 PM

Focus Home Interactive and Frogware’s Crime and Punishments is centered around one infamously eccentric detective: Sherlock Holmes. And with the newest “This is Sherlock” trailer released today, we can see just how eccentric — and effective — the detective is his newest adventure.

Giving fans a taste of both the characters and the mystery, “This is Sherlock” introduces Holmes, Watson and a slew of scenes that showcase the gameplay and the narrative of Crimes and Punishments, which you can view below.

Crimes & Punishments will have players stepping into the elementary shoes of Sherlock in ways they’ve never had before, reportedly, using 14 different mechanics that will allow players to use Holmes’ trademark deduction skills during each step of the investigation process, along with strong moral choices presented that players have to grapple with. The game has been given an amazing overhaul via the Unreal Engine, which lends itself well to the setting of the game.

Crimes and Punishments is set to release to the PS4, PS3, PC and Xbox 360 sometime this summer. For more on the game, check out all of our Crimes and Punishments details, screenshots and trailers, and visit the Crimes and Punishments website.
