In an E3 that is full of sequels and the same-old, Murdered: Soul Suspect, may stand out as something that’s actually new.
The concept of the title is based on Die Hard, but with a twist where creative director Yosuke Shiokawa wonders what if protagonist John McClane died in the events of the film yet continues to fight as a ghost.
The hardest case to solve is one’s own murder. Murdered: Soul Suspect takes players into a whole new realm of mystery where the case is personal and the clues just out of reach. When Ronan O’Connor, a detective with a checkered past, gets caught up in a violent burglary, his life is brought to an untimely end by a brutal and relentless killer. Shocked to find himself in the afterlife, his only escape from the limbo world of ‘Dusk’ is to uncover the truth behind his killer, track him down and bring him to justice using his detective instinct and newfound supernatural abilities.
