Murdered: Soul Suspect details emerge
Upcoming game from Square Enix shown off in teaser video; more details at E3 next week.
The nearly three-minute spot focuses on the main character, Ronan O'Connor, a detective with a checkered past. After he is killed by a "brutal and relentless" enemy, O'Connor is stuck in the limbo world of Dusk and remains there until he can bring his killer to justice from the afterlife.
O'Connor cannot speak with detectives working on his case, so he must "read the minds of the living" and influence their thoughts and actions with his supernatural abilities.
As was rumored, Murdered: Soul Suspect is set in Salem, Massachusetts, the location of the Salem witch trials in 1692, which saw public executions of those convicted of witchcraft. During his investigation, O'Connor must interrogate the ghosts of Salem to learn more about his killer.
Murdered: Soul Suspect is currently in development for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. According to the teaser video, more details will be shared at the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo next week.
