Murdered: Soul Suspect now coming to Xbox One and PS4

Update: Square Enix confirms both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are on the way.

by

Update: Square Enix has confirmed that Murdered: Soul Suspect will be coming to both Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and that the game is due for release on all platforms in June 2014.

"The new console versions will offer increased visual fidelity via native 1080p output," said Square Enix in a statement. "Elements such as subsurface scattering and an increased particle count will depict an even more immersive ghost world and cast as players guide slain Salem detective Ronan O’Connor on a quest to find his killer and escape the limbo-like world of Dusk."

Original story: Supernatural crime caper Murdered: Soul Suspect will be coming to Xbox One, Square Enix has confirmed.

The Xbox One version will now be released alongside the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions. Murdered: Soul Suspect was announced in a fairly low-key fashion at some time last year, and Square Enix later told GameSpot that it wouldn't see a release before March 2014.

GameSpot has asked Square Enix about whether a PlayStation 4 version is also on the way.

Murdered: Soul Suspect is being developed by Quantum Conundrum developer Airtight Games, and has players assume the role of a ghost detective trying to find the culprit behind his own murder. You'll be able to rummage through locations for clues, and there's also a few supernatural powers to tap into.

Very interested in this game. Was gonna buy it for PS3 but now I'll get it on PS4.

So by the crew that worked on Left 4 Dead and Portal? I'm definitely getting this. I never knew it wasn't planned for all consoles. I was sure it was running on PC at E3 regardless of what they were saying. No way was that last gen.

This is what happens when I don't pay attention during Gaming Conventions. I actually thought this title was a next gen title to begin with. It never occurred to me that it wasn't originally coming out for Xbox One and PS4.

Hmmm. Let's hope it's a good game. They definitely have a great track record for story telling.

It actually looks cool. Glad it's coming for PS4 as well.

Well that's good. I want to play everything I can on my PS4 rather then the PS3.

This would have been a day one buy for me (depending on how it reviews) had they not gone digital download only for the PC version.

I will be waiting for a Steam sale to pick this up, just like I did with the newest Tomb Raider.  The previews look great, but I like a boxed copy for my collection.  No boxed copy = Wait for a sale for me.

We all know what platform the game will look better on.

Cue: Xbots who said earlier how awesome this looked, now shrugging the game off.

What's the point of having two consoles if all the games come out for both (your exclusives fanboys don't count because they SUCK)

@Kryptonbornson  Supose, you don't own a PS3 then? there are PS3 games with far better graphics than this.

@Gallowhand  Sorry, this'll be off topic, but I like your icon. I really wish Monolith made a third No One Lives Forever (and another good F.E.A.R.)

@strahd01  I hope you have one of the other systems it's on first, as waiting for the PC release of Dark Souls II would be absolutely nightmarish. I'm very happy I didn't get rid of my PS3 to justify getting a PS4 before any worthwhile games are on it.

@boricuasnake04 Only thing not suprised is everyone making the same joke. Every troll now is a resolution&FPS expert it seems.
Try to be original at least.

@boricuasnake04  check the update.....its 1080p native on next gen!! move on with your 720p.... there won't be anymore on xbox ....

@jeromechillin55 We all know what kind of fanboys are obsessed about graphics even in a story-driven last-gen port like this one.

@bluefox755  Your comment is confusing. It wasn't an Xbox exclusive... What am I missing?

@bluefox755  euh.....like it's a surprise that this game will finally come to ps4 .....

@ziproy  I 66% agree. PC exclusives like DOTA and LOL suck. Most of xbox exclusives suck. Knack sux, but rest PS exclusives are worth getting PS even if you already have WiiU, Xbox, PC and a smartphone

@ziproy  Dude, you just TOTALLY blew the lid off the gaming industry!

@ziproy  The point of having two isn't for exclusives now. Most launch exclusives are lackluster. It's been a given for quite awhile and the fact that people are still acting shocked or upset by it just goes to show how reactionary some gamers can be. You're looking at the exclusives over the entire life of the console, not the first 6 months - 1 year. If you can't look at the history of the 360 and PS3 and feel confident that there will be some great exclusives soon enough then you probably have more pessimism than is considered healthy.

@ziproy  Competition is always a good thing.  If there was no competition, Sony would still be selling their consoles for 600 bucks

freedom01
freedom01 moderator

@ziproy  maybe because they want to sell it to as many gamers as they can so that they can make money from both sides of gamers, and also its not only 2 consoles, also will come out for PS3, X360, and PC so that makes it 5 gaming platforms

@mr_nee @Kryptonbornson No there isn't. Only Final Fantansy XIII might look that good. I never play Metal Gear on PS3 to verify, but this always looked like PC.

@StHapns247 you are missing pre-update article and comments. alot of xbots, thought this will not come to PS4. Thaught like that automatically increases games value in the eyes of loyal fanboys who stay loyal even after MS ripped them off, nerfed their system and practically raped in the *** with their policies

@lonewolf315 Didn't play Beyond, but the other two don't look as good as this game.

@Kryptonbornson @mr_nee  I'm guessing you also skipped playing Uncharted 3, Last of Us or Beyond: Two Souls. All were graphically superior to this game and were on PS3.
