Today Square Enix revealed a new trailer for its latest supernatural mystery, Murdered: Soul Suspect. Square Enix promises a new take on the action/adventure genre.
The main premise of the game is that you have been murdered and you are out to find your killer…as a ghost who is stuck in limbo or Dusk as it is called in Murdered. Think L.A. Noire meets Dishonored, at least that’s the feel you get from this first trailer. I wouldn’t be surprised if Square Enix has some cards up their sleeves to make the game their own though. It looks promising so far. Here is the game description directly from Square Enix:
MURDERED: SOUL SUSPECT sees players take the role of Ronan O’Connor, a detective with a checkered past, whose life is brought to an untimely end by a brutal and relentless killer. Unable to move on and stuck in the limbo world of Dusk, he won’t find peace until he can bring his killer to justice from the afterlife.
Using his new-found supernatural abilities, Ronan is free to explore the town of Salem, Massachusetts, from his shadowy afterlife. Unable to communicate with the detectives on his case, Ronan must read the minds of the living, influencing their thoughts and actions. As part of his investigation, he must interrogate the ghosts of Salem’s past citizens to piece together the puzzle, while battling demonic spirits to save his soul and uncover the shocking truth about who is responsible for his death.
We’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for more news at E3 about the game. Murdered: Soul Suspect will be available early 2014 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
