If you're into darker mysteries, Square Enix might just have the game for you.
The publisher has revealed Murdered: Soul Suspect , which is in development for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC and will have players attempt to solve "possibly the hardest case of all." …hmm, creepy.
We have no idea which studio is working on the project, nor do we have an estimated release date. But it's possible that either Eidos Montreal or Crystal Dynamics is involved, as they're both currently cranking away on unannounced titles. All we have so far is the teaser website with an odd symbol taking center-stage. If you enter the word "Ronan" you'll see a screenshot featuring a man who seems to be lying dead in a street. A shadowy figure looms over him. There's also an American flag, which hints at a US setting, and there are other clues, such as a phone number.
As for that image, we glean the following information from its properties:
"O'Connor, male, mid-30s, 170lbs, 5' 11" …detectives aren't supposed to get bloody knuckles, but I've done a lot of things I wasn't supposed to do. I lived through it all, the beat-downs, the back-stabbing, disrespect most people wouldn't see in ten lifetimes and I never lost a fight… until now."
So we'll play as a detective? Is it really about solving cases or is it closer to action/adventure? Guess we'll have to wait and see.
