Murdered: Soul Suspect Announced for Xbox One and PS4

/ Feb 6th, 2014 No Comments

Murdered: Soul Suspect

Square-Enix announced a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of Murdered: Soul Suspect will release alongside the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC versions later this year.

Murdered: Soul Suspect for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will tout a higher visual quality with native 1080p output on next-gen consoles. The increased fidelity will include subsurface scattering and an increased particle count. Upgraded visuals for the PS4 and Xbox One versions depict a more immersive world for Ronan O’Connor to explore as he tries to find his killer.
 

Murdered: Soul Suspect

Imagine that face in glorious native 1080p!

As Ronan O’Connor, players will attempt to solve their own murder as a spirit. O’Connor is a Salem police detective with a sordid past – during the opening of the game he is murdered by a brutal killer. As a spirit, O’Connor can posses people to investigate his murder in order to uncover clues and leads. Now, he is a ghost stuck in Dusk until he can find the person responsible for his murder and enact justice.

In addition to the announcement of next-gen versions of the game, Murdered: Soul Suspect received a release date. The game will be available June 2014 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Quick Take

This is not a surprising move by any means. There are still a few PS3 and Xbox 360 games straggling out this year without a next-gen version announced, but with the successful launches of the PS4 and Xbox One, it will not be a stretch to see more next-gen upgrades get announced. Square-Enix recently released a next-gen facelift of Tomb Raider, so it is not shocking that they would announce a PS4 and Xbox One version of Murdered: Soul Suspect to attract a larger section of potential consumers.

The part of the game showed off at E3 last year nailed the noir/crime story vibe well with solid dialogue and an intriguing supernatural premise. A PS4 and Xbox One version means most people will not have to lug out their 360/PS3 from the closet to check it out. Plus, better graphics never hurt.
