New screenshots released for the beautiful Sherlock Holmes Crimes and Punishments

Focus Home Interactive and Frogwares have released new screenshots for their upcoming Sherlock Holmes title that hopes to bring the time-honoured series to new heights, not only do they promise a Holmes experience like no other, it's going to look darn good, just take a look at the screenshots!

The new screenshots definitely go to show how far the step from Frogwares' internal engine to Unreal Engine 3 has taken the most ambitious game in the Sherlock Holmes franchise.

Not only does the game look gorgeous, it also marks another notable step in the series by dropping the traditional PC adventure game gameplay in favour of a more realistic investigation experience for both console and PC with 14 gameplay mechanics that will be presented in more detail over the coming months.

Players will now have the chance to truly feel like they are Sherlock Holmes, which we have agreed with past games was just not the case, and Crimes and Punishment promises players will be able to fully use Holmes' incredible talents and gifts that allow him to guess the details about an individual’s life by simply glancing at them.
