His skills, your wits!
Having explored some of Holmes' skills in previous gameplay videos of Crimes & Punishments - your new investigation game coming from September 30 on PS4®, PS3®, Xbox One®, Xbox 360® and PC - Frogwares and Focus Home Interactive today introduce the complexity of not the cases, but the characters of Crimes & Punishments. It is a trailer about empathy, blame, and punishment - not of the suspect, but of Sherlock himself, as he lives with the decisions made throughout the game.
Crimes & Punishments introduces moral changes to the Sherlock Holmes series. Not only are you charged with selecting the suspect who committed the crime, but also what to do with him, either handing him to the police or empathizing with his or her situation, setting them free after a dressing down in true Holmes style. Not only can you commit any of up to five suspects, but you can also commit two - then, your moral choice will follow, and their fate will be left in your hands, with all the responsibility on your conscience.
You can watch our previous gameplay trailers here, and, if you wish to get a more in depth look at some of the London-based locations you'll be inspecting this September, watch last week's Location Trailer!
His skills, your wits - become Sherlock Holmes in Crimes & Punishments from September 30 on PS4®, PS3®, Xbox One®, Xbox 360®, and PC.

His skills, your wits!
From luscious gardens to Victorian manors, to grim crimes scenes, discover the beautiful and meticulously detailed environments you will explore as Sherlock Holmes in Frogwares’ latest investigation game, Crimes & Punishments, coming from September 30 on PS4®, PS3®, Xbox One®, Xbox 360® and PC.
A testimony to Frogwares’ care and attention to detail in their gorgeous recreation of the Victorian era, this video is the third of a series focusing on the many new aspects brought to Crimes & Punishments, expanding on the series in every way.
London and its suburbs are composed of varied and exotic locations, sprawling with culture and class at every turn. From moon-lit grimy alleys, to sun-kissed Chinese gardens, no matter how seemingly peaceful a scene may be, it is always open to the horrible thefts and murders that Holmes charges himself with investigating. Hot on the scent, you – along with Watson – will find yourself readying the motor-carriage to visit some of the most famous locations in and around London, such as Kew Gardens and the Roman city of St Albans. Where there is beauty there is murder, in this faithful recreation of the Victorian world.
There are six unique cases in Sherlock Holmes Crimes & Punishments, and with each new case new locations to explore and piece together all the clues in order to feel confident about the choices you make, culminating in either the absolving or condemning of a suspect. Expanding on the universe of Sherlock Holmes games, Scotland Yard makes an appearance as the central-hub for interrogating suspects once arrested, examining evidence, and even inspecting corpse after autopsy, for any all-important missing clues!
Last week, we witnessed Holmes’s Art of Subversion, as well as his Art of Interrogation. We’ll be bringing you a new video each week, right up until launch, so stay tuned!
Become Sherlock Holmes in Crimes & Punishments from September 30 on PS4®, PS3®, Xbox One®, Xbox 360®, and PC.
