Murdered: Soul Suspect Hits the Next Generation

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
Airtight Games and Square Enix have kept very quiet about Murdered: Soul Suspect over the past five months. There is a good reason for this. The game has now been confirmed to be heading to the next generation of consoles, as well as the previously announced Xbox 360.

As players attempt to help detective Ronan O’Connor solve his own murder, the spirit world of Dusk will be brought to life in ways that can't be created on the Xbox 360. The Xbox One version will be able to offer better graphics through a native 1080p output. A "more immersive" ghost world can be created through an increased particle count and subsurface scattering.

The latest trailer for the title shows O'Connor as he realises that he was not the first to fall victim to his killer and is unlikely to be the last. There are many secrets in Salem.

Microsoft's Major Nelson managed to get an exclusive hands-on with the Xbox One version of the title. The game's Chief Creative Officer Matt Brunner and Design Producer Eric Studer give background into O'Connor and the benefits of being able to play the story through the eyes of a ghost. You also get to view never-seen-before gameplay footage.
