Holmes' biggest mystery is ready to be revealed: the release date of Sherlock Holmes Crimes & Punishments from Frogwares, is the 30th of September for all territories, on the PS4®, PS3®, Xbox One®, Xbox 360®, and PC.

Begin your investigation across the aforementioned major platforms spanning 6 unique cases in many different locations around 19th century London, taking advantage of his skills, with your wits. Get a 30 second dose of the intrigue and atmosphere in Sherlock Holmes Crimes & Punishments in a new trailer below.

View Trailer here.

Previously, you've seen 23 minutes of gameplay, as we chartered unknown waters in the Case of Black Peter. As mentioned, there areup to 9 different conclusions to each case, and we promised we wouldn't spoil the ending. That means the murderer of Peter Carey is still on the loose, and come September 30, we can't wait for you to compare your conclusions to ours on our Facebook or Twitter accounts.

In Crimes & Punishments you take to the streets as Victorian detective Sherlock Holmes, as you investigate alongside Scotland Yard some of the most heinous and complex crimes imaginable. In a gameplay experience designed to showcase some of Holmes' most famous skills, the investigative mechanics in Crimes & Punishments lend themselves to the cunning and skill of the player; in Sherlock Holmes Crimes & Punishments, it's his skills, your wits.

It's almost time to become the legendary Victorian detective himself in Sherlock Holmes Crimes & Punishments, for the PS4®, PS3®, Xbox One®, Xbox 360®, and PC, coming September 30th.


About Crimes & Punishments
Crimes & Punishments marks the most important stage in the Sherlock Holmes series. The decision by Frogwares studios to switch from the in-house engine to the Epic Unreal Engine 3 enables a much richer, more immersive and detailed rendering of both the environments and characters.

But the change of game engine has not only improved the graphics; new investigation techniques have been developed and the game can now offer 14 game mechanics. From the opening of each of the six investigations up to the arrest of the culprits and the moral dilemmas faced by the players, the new game mechanics convey the feeling of BEING Sherlock Holmes. Players will therefore be able to exploit the incredible gifts and talents for which he is renowned, such as his ability to guess the details of an individual's life simply by observing them, or to imagine and reconstruct a past event by studying the key features of a crime scene.

Thanks for the news, just a couple of clarifications please, will this require Steam to play and will it have a 3rd person option? Thanks for any help you might provide.

Hi Butcher,

Yes, it has third person option.

As for requiring Steam to play, I don't know for sure -- but Testament did not, so I would think Crimes & Punishments would be the same. Testament only required online activation. Let's wait for clarification on this one. smile

Looks fantastic but I'm a little apprehensive about having different endings. To me that means we won't be getting MaG's wonderful text walkthrough. I hate video walkthroughs. That is why I haven't bought the new Tex Murphy game.

Don't worry, judith, MaG is writing a walkthrough for this one. She was given early access to the game, so has had lots of time to play and write! bravo

This game got "Best Adventure Game at E3" and is supposed to be the best adventure game for graphics - I may pick this up.
