Crimes and Punishments: Morality

by Danny Vittore


We have previously encountered many trailers from Focus Home Interactive and Frogwares detailing different aspects of gameplay you will find in Crimes and Punishments. You can read about our analysis (and watch the trailer) of Subversion, Interrogation and Locations within the game.

Now we have another new trailer to look through and it appears to be one that concerns the idea of morality within the game as well as some potential spoilers within the game. In the game we see the apparent ends of 3 different characters that will be seen in the game. A relatively young man (who can be seen in the trailer running away into the field as well as being shot in the head by a woman), a woman with a blackened-eye (who can be seen arrested and taken to the police station, as well as disappearing at the train station with Sherlock watching on) and an Asian man choking to death, who is later seen in the trailer practicing tai-chi.

The trailer seems to be emphasizing that your actions don’t just directly affect Sherlock Holmes, but also affects characters around you, making them do things with dire consequences like murder. It also seems to confirm that you will be able to make moral choices, which we have covered before, and allow guilty people get away because you agree with their motives.

The song in the trailer is called Pretty Little Thing, just in case you were wondering. Crimes and Punishments: Sherlock Holmes is due to be released on the 30th of September for Xbox One,PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
