A new trailer for Sherlock Holmes Crimes & Punishments details the games interrogation system

Focus Home Interactive has revealed a new trailer for Crime & Punishments, the latest entry in Frogwares' Sherlock Holmes series.

The video below details the interrogation system used in the game, in which Holmes can call upon his razor-sharp perception to build a picture of a person’s background, a similar trait to that displayed by Holmes in the novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

When Holmes comes to question a suspect or witness, he is able to closely scan the individual for clues that may aid the investigation. Clues found in this way can be used to ascertain whether that person is lying or telling the truth in response to the questions Holmes asks.


The cases Holmes diverts his attention to in Crimes & Punishments have a number of different endings which depend on choices you make as you carry out the investigations.

Sherlock Holmes Crimes & Punishments is set to release on September 30th for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
