Square Enix has released a new trailer for Murdered: Soul Suspect, which sees players take on the role of detective Rowan O’Connor as he attempts to solve his own murder.
O’Connor finds himself in a fistfight with an unknown suspect in the top floor of a house, during the fight he finds himself magically on the street below approaching a body with a hooded man stooped over it. Upon closer inspection he discovers that the body is his own and that he was pushed from the top floor window.
After touching his killer on the shoulder and witnessing his own murder he sets out to find him from the afterlife using supernatural powers. O’Connor is stuck in a realm known as Dusk and can’t directly communicate with the detectives working on the case in the real-world, but he can influence their thoughts and actions.
Murdered: Soul Suspect is due to release early 2014 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
