The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes announced

Focus Home Interactive offers you to portray the famous English detective as he has been designated as the the prime suspect in a weird case. In The Testament of Sherlock Holmes you will have to prove your own innocence while even your best friend, Doctor Watson, is doubting you. The game is planned to be released this fall on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Press Release :

The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes revealed with Screenshots!

For over ten years, millions of players have donned the hat and magnifying glass of the world's greatest detective, in a dozen games for PC and handheld systems. This year, Sherlock Holmes makes a triumphant return in his very first adventure specially designed for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game consoles! All the mystery and intrigue will also be available on PC; check out the new screenshots for the first-ever glimpse of the game.

We invite you to discover the first images of The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Testament of Sherlock. These images show off the game's engine, which was specially built to display complex scenes and high-resolution textures. The game features lush, captivating environments and truly raises the bar for console adventure games.

A mainstay genre of computer games, this new Holmes game is playable with a gamepad in a third person view, with revamped controls that suit the console. The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes will immerse gamers in 1898 London as they conduct an incredible investigation. All the evidence suggests our hero is 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?

The complex and decidedly-mature storyline surrounds a particularly tricky investigation, in which each and every puzzle will challenge both insight and wits! As Sherlock Holmes, players will use the detective's full repertoire: handle and inspect clues, reenact crimes and use the game's new deduction system to draw your own conclusions. Choose your questioning approach to catch characters off guard and gather valuable information. Players are facing an open investigation, and must decide which leads to follow and which to ignore.

You are Sherlock Holmes, and this is your investigation. Live a thrilling adventure and foil an incredible conspiracy! The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Testament of Sherlock is coming soon to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC fall 2011.

This could be quite interesting. I hope they make the Holmes model after Jeremy Brett.

Well pity they won't make it after Vasily Livanov -- THE best Sherlock Holmes ever...

I wonder if anyone would ever be bold enough to include Holmes' cocaine addition or any of his other vices. It rounds his character out, makes him kind of like a troubled genius.

    GriftGFX "It felt good to me" is why shooters had terrible netcode for a decade. No one cared until BF4 launched broken. (11 Hours ago)
