I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

Road to Release - Murdered: Soul Suspect

Posted on Tuesday, May 27 @ 09:00:00 Eastern by GR_Staff

Release Date: June 3rd, 2014
Platforms: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC
Publisher: Square Enix
Developer: Airtight Games
 



While fans might not have expected Airtight Games to go supernatural thriller on the haunted town of Salem, Massachusetts, Murdered: Soul Suspect might prove the exact change of direction the studio needs to capture gamers, especially since some of the industry veterans that formed Airtight Games back in 2004 came fresh from development of Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge, one of the most beloved Xbox games of all time.

Since starting the studio, Jim Deal and the rest of the team developed and released Dark Void with Capcom, Quantum Conundrum with Murdered publisher Square Enix, and most recently Ouya-exclusive roguelike rhythm title Soul Fjord. With development on Soul Fjord and Murdered: Soul Suspect running alongside each other, you might worry that the ghostly tale of a detective on the trail of his own killer could get a little silly.

Thankfully, Murdered: Soul Suspect has always had procedural, investigative gameplay at the forefront. Players take on the role of Detective Ronan O'Connor whose haphazard involvement in a robbery brings his life to an end just in time to catch the killer.

Ronan gets trapped in "Dusk", a limbo world Ronan and other spirits inhabit in the town of Salem, Massachusetts which has its own supernatural history and a less than stellar track record with public executions of witches.

With numerous E3 awards under its belt, Murdered: Soul Suspect carries high expectations on its ghostly shoulders, but it'll be up to players to help Ronan unravel the mystery surrounding his and the deaths of others while doing battle with demonic forces. And believe me, Salem might as well be the demonic capitol of the Northeast.
