Crimes & Punishments – the Art of Subversion by Sherlock Holmes

by

Crimes & Punishments, the new investigation game from Frogwares, today unveils a new gameplay video, presenting one of the many skills of Sherlock: the Art of Subversion! This new video is the second of a series of videos we will be releasing over the coming weeks until the release of the game on September 30 on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.

Holmes is known for his high intelligence, and high level of deduction skill. However, Sherlock as he was imagined and written by Arthur Conan Doyle is also a master of disguise, a characteristic that Frogwares transposed in Crimes & Punishments, as one of the many skills the players will actively use to solve the 6 cases of the game.

In turn, we find at Baker Street, in Holmes’ bedroom, a wardrobe that holds the key to Holmes’ disguises, as well as a dressing table housing wigs, hats, glasses, different hair styles and beards. everything needed to transform into about anyone! This is a very useful skill, when it comes to approaching suspects who might be wary of a well-known detective, and get information – or even confessions – by faking being a member of their social class. This is exactly what reveals today’s video, “Art of Subversion“, as we witness Sherlock disguising as an Irish sailor to approach a suspect.

We’ll have a new video of Crimes and Punishments every week until launch, coming to the PS4®, PS3®, Xbox One®, Xbox 360®, and PC, on September 30th.
