The next instalment in Frogwares’ Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes series Crimes & Punishments will be a little different from previous instalments (which by the way we reviewed). Mainly because developers Frogwares have swapped out it home-made engine for Epic’s Unreal Engine 3 to power the game.
The new engine allows the adventure game to hold bigger and more varied environments, with improved levels of detail such as dynamic lighting, shaders, post-processing effects, and more animations.
Frogwares has released a tech demo to showcase these new effects and graphics, viewable below. More videos on Crimes & Punishments’ gameplay features are set to be released over the coming weeks.
Crimes & Punishments is set to be released on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC this year.
