The fate of others rests on your decisions in Crimes & Punishments

Sherlock Holmes Crimes & Punishments hanging screen

The moral pitfalls that come with being a sleuth of Sherlock Holmes; calibre

In the run up to Frogwares’ Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments we’ve seen how Holmes exercises his heightened perception and how the Baker Street super-sleuth goes undercover, now a new trailer for the game investigates the outcomes of your moral choices in the game.

As the press release blurb explains: “Crimes & Punishments introduces moral changes to the Sherlock Holmes series. Not only are you charged with selecting the suspect who committed the crime, but also what to do with him, either handing him to the police or empathizing with his or her situation, setting them free after a dressing down in true Holmes style. Not only can you commit any of up to five suspects, but you can also commit two - then, your moral choice will follow, and their fate will be left in your hands, with all the responsibility on your conscience.”

As a result of choices you make unforeseen outcomes can arise, putting the strength of your moral fibre to the test.

You can bear witness to the Pretty Little Crimes trailer below.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments lands on 30th September on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
