Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments Will Be Powered By Unreal Engine 3, Tech Demo Released

Sherlock Holmes Crimes & Punishments
Now this definitely passed under our radar. Focus Home Interactive revealed last week that its latest Sherlock Holmes game will be powered by Unreal Engine 3, and released a tech demo for it. With Crimes & Punishments, the development studio Frogwares will give up its home-made engine in order to switch to the well-known Unreal Engine 3 from Epic. This choice will first allow the game to benefit from bigger environments that are more gorgeous and more varied, but it also allows the development of new investigation mechanics, that the previous engine’s limitations did not permit. Enjoy the tech trailer below and stay tuned for more!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
