Murdered: Soul Suspect

Solve Your Own Murder In Murdered: Soul Suspect

We now know more about Murdered: Soul Suspect with a new trailer that sets up the story, and shows off a little but of gameplay. The game was teased earlier this year with only its title.

It looks like a cross between Indigo Prophecy and L.A. Noire, with a little but of Ghost Trick thrown in for good measure. You take on the role of Ronan O’Connor, a detective who loves to narrate his adventures – as all good noire detectives do. O'Connor must solve the case of his own murder by reading the minds of those in the living world while he explores as a bullet-ridden ghost.

You can check out the trailer below. Murdered: Soul Suspect is set for release on current-gen consoles in early 2014.

  • That reminded me of the death scene in ghost.
  • In the first sentence, I think "but" should be "bit".
  • The CG part of the trailer was really cool, the gameplay at the end looked a little less impressive but of course, I will have to see more before I can make a solid judgment on it. The concept is certainly unique. I wonder who is developing it.
  • I'm intrigued. Waiting to see more

  • looks very interesting will have to keep hold of my 360 for a good while it seems.

  • this game looks really cool.  a great concept for a game.  the last game to even come close to this was shadow of destiny.

  • Looks decent imo. Ghost Trick really comes to mind here as Kyle already pointed out.

  • This looks pretty interesting. I like the premise, will have to keep on eye on it.

    I would be frustrated as all get out watching the guy that just shot me walk away and not be able to do a damn thing about it. I would definitely be a pissed off spirit.
  • It could be interesting.  Probably more adventure than action but that's not a bad thing.

  • I'm interested.

  • Well I am now excited for this game. EXCITEMENT!

  • This game just looks amazing. I think we can all agree that the premise is great, but has anyone said anything about the look of the game? It's great!

    At first, I started thinking it looked kinda like the old west. Then, I saw some of the street lights, and I thought maybe it's the Noir era. But then I see the clothing, and it hits me- this is modern times!

    It's a rather cool idea, I think, to have such different looking visual styles going on at the same time!

  • I'm really intriguing by this game, and have been for awhile. It has no excuse not to be awesome.

  • I like the looks of this, definitely has a lot of potential.

  • Woah. I gotta see how this one plays out. Interesting concept. Hopefully the gameplay is just as good.

  • This looks very awesome but I will be getting an Xbox One and would rather buy a "next-gen" game.  Hopefully this will also release for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

  • This looks pretty good. I love a good mystery. It does remind me of Indigo Prophecy which was awesome.

  • Looks pretty cool.

  • This looks like a video game version of The Dresden Files: Ghost Story.
