Frogwares has released a new gameplay trailer for Sherlock Homes: Crimes and Punishments, showcasing some of the new skills that players will be able to take advantage of while solving a case.

Crimes and Punishments features six different cases, each with six different endings—depending on who you choose to accuse. Players will be able to use a new Character Portrait skill while interrogating suspects to observe and examine their general look to unlock new clues. Also, the Deduction skill allows players to react to a new piece of evidence by offering several seconds to link it back to an existing piece to unlock a new clue.

“For the first time in the Sherlock Holmes series, the famous sleuth can get it wrong and send innocents to jail. In order to help you find the right criminal, we’ve worked hard on a brand new deduction board. We really wanted the player to feel like they are the greatest detective of all time,” Frogwares’ Olga Ryzhko wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “Each of your discoveries are stored in his fantastic brain, allowing you to match them together, creating a real network of clues, helping you elucidate crime scenes, find suspects, and determine guilt.

“Once you’ve named your culprit, you’ll be facing a crucial decision: will you condemn or absolve them? This particular point is important, as it can impact the future of your investigations. At the end of the case, you’ll be given a detective score, and a moral choice that you’ll be able to compare with your friends and the community!”

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments is set to release later this year for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.
