The Twitter account for Murdered: Soul Suspect let the cat out the bag this morning, confirming what we expected. There were reports that the mystery puzzle game was coming to PS4, but there was no confirmation of this happening.
So now we know the game will be released on PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC in June from publisher Square Enix.
The game is centered on Detective Ronan O’Connor who uses his ghostly powers to solve his own murder while combating demonic creatures at the same time.
The premise of this game has been compared to the 2010 adventure game Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, but Matthew Brunner chief operating officer of developer Airtight Games says that “he wasn’t even aware of Ghost Trick when development began, and that while the premises are similar, the two games’ look, feel and gameplay are very different.”
In particular, Ghost Trick was full of puzzles, whereas Murdered is designed around investigation — an act that has puzzle elements, but isn’t built like a puzzle game.
The game earned numerous honors when it was shown at last year’s E3 and could be one of the best games to come out in 2014.
This a new trailer for the game below.
