It might not star Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, but Frogwares' take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective series is proving to be quite the caper.
Indie developer Frogwares has released its E3 trailer on the PlayStation Blog for Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments. This marks the first time Frogwares' Adventures of Sherlock Holmes series will debut on next-gen consoles along with the studio's first use of Unreal Engine 3. The combination of Unreal Engine 3 and next-gen technology suggests that Crimes & Punishments is going to be one of the best-looking sleuth stories around.
What's interesting about Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments is that it was inspired by Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky's novel, 'Crime and Punishment,' intertwined with Doyle's classic tales. The game will feature six sophisticated cases and up to nine different conclusions for each one. This means that your character can be wrong or right and the story will continue. Just remember that you're determining the fate of the people you accuse.
Sherlock: Crimes & Punishments will start its first investigation this September for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
