This trailer for Frogwares’ The Testament of Sherlock Holmes shows the darker side of the investigation.
1898, London. All the evidence of police investigation points at Sherlock Holmes as the main suspect in a case involving theft, fraud and double-crossings. Unable to prove his own innocence, Holmes is rapidly losing London’s trust as doubt spreads through the city like wildfire. Even Doctor Watson’s faith in his friend begins to waver, as the famous detective flees Scotland Yard and raises further suspicion; prowling around at night, destruction of evidence… would Holmes go so far as to commit murder?
Multiple bloody murders, a strange illness which started to plague the population of London… these are the cases that players will have to investigate, all the while trying to discover the reasons behind the strange actions of Sherlock himself.
The Testament of Sherlock Holmes will be coming to PC, PS3 and Xbox360 this September.
