A Brand New Sherlock Holmes Game on the Way for Xbox360,PS3 and PC


As a big fan of the Victorian sleuth I’ll be keeping an eye on this one new game due out in early 2012. The fact you can play in 3rd person is another draw for me.  Focus Home Interactive, the company behind the game have release a teaser trailer for the title. The trailer shows off an ominous feel to the game, largely thanks to the music and some of the cutscenes but doesn’t give much way and it’s hard to tell if any of the footage is actual gameplay.

According to the blurb you will play as both Holmes and Watson during the course of the game. The makes also promise a tale that will…
