Trailers

logo_crimes&punishments_blackCrimes & Punishments, the new investigation game from Frogwares, today unveils a new gameplay video, presenting one of the many skills of Sherlock: the Art of Subversion! This new video is the second of a series of videos  that will be released over the coming weeks until the release of the game on September 30 on Xbox One & Xbox 360.

Holmes is known for his high intelligence, and high level of deduction skill. However, Sherlock as he was imagined and written by Arthur Conan Doyle is also a master of disguise, a characteristic that Frogwares transposed in Crimes & Punishments, as one of the many skills the players will actively use to solve the 6 cases of the game.

In the video that follows we find at Baker Street, in Holmes’ bedroom, a wardrobe that holds the key to Holmes’ disguises, as well as a dressing table housing wigs, hats, glasses, different hair styles and beards. everything needed to transform into about anyone! This seems to be one of the more useful skills in the game, when it comes to approaching suspects who might be wary of a well-known detective, and get information – or even confessions – by faking being a member of their social class. You’ll also notice Holmes does a pretty good Irish accent too…

  • video does it some justice…

  • I was a little worried at first. But as time has gone on I am increasingly more confident that it won’t be a complete disaster.
