Sherlock Holmes Returns on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360

by Adam Riley on 06/28/12

Sherlock Holmes causes a stir! For over ten years, millions of players have donned the hat and magnifying glass of the world's greatest detective, in a dozen games for PC and handheld systems. This year, Sherlock Holmes makes a triumphant return in his very first adventure specially designed for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. All the mystery and intrigue will also be available on PC.

1898, London. All the evidence of police investigation points at Sherlock Holmes as the main suspect in a case involving theft, fraud and double-crossings. Unable to prove his own innocence, Holmes is rapidly losing London's trust as doubt spreads through the city like wildfire. Even Doctor Watson's faith in his friend begins to waver, as the famous detective flees Scotland Yard and raises further suspicion; prowling around at night, destruction of evidence...would Holmes go so far as to commit murder?

A mainstay genre of console games, The Testament of Sherlock Holmes is playable with a gamepad in a third person view, with controls thought and specially developed with consoles in mind. The new game engine was also specially built to display complex scenes and high-resolution textures. The game features lush, captivating environments and truly raises the bar for console adventure games. The complex and decidedly-mature storyline surrounds a particularly tricky investigation, in which each and every puzzle will challenge both insight and wits. As Sherlock Holmes, you will use the detective's full repertoire: handle and inspect clues, re-enact crimes and use the game's new deduction system to draw your own conclusions. Choose your questioning approach to catch characters off guard and gather valuable information. Players are facing an open investigation, and must decide which leads to follow and which to ignore.

Scotland Yard is relentless in its pursuit of the famous fallen detective, but did not manage yet to arrest the one who was, not so long ago, considered an exemplary citizen and a skilled investigator. Hunted, Holmes still continues his investigation and his questionable doings, right under the police's nose. The game has a dark ambiance and a strong story centered around a controversial hero with obscure motives. This is a thrilling investigation that players will have to lead, playing as both Holmes and Watson in turns. Multiple bloody murders, a strange illness that started to plague the population of London. These are the cases they will have to investigate upon, all the while trying to discover the reasons behind the strange actions of Sherlock himself.

You are Sherlock Holmes, and this is your investigation. Unfold an incredible conspiracy on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in September 2012.
