O’Connor, the hero of Murdered: Soul Suspect, never lost a fight … until now.
Take a good look: that’s the hero of the story, about to find out whether the pavement is harder than his head. That, and maybe a few other things, gives you a really good reason to want the other fella dead, and Square Enix is hoping that the lure of solving your own murder will entice you into its latest project: Murdered: Soul Suspect.
You play as Detective O’Connor, formerly of Salem, Massachusetts, now residing in the nearest morgue. “I lived through it all,” says he, courtesy of the game’s Facebook page, “the beat-downs, the back-stabbing, disrespect most people wouldn’t see in ten lifetimes and I never lost a fight… until now.” There are a couple of photos up on that same Facebook page, one of which may indicate your first port of call; unless it’s a coincidence that you happened to take your final dive right in front of what looks suspiciously like a psychic’s shopfront.
There’s not much to go on at the moment, and you’ve a while to wait before you get your hands on this one. Early 2014, for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, is the best Square Enix is prepared to do at this point.
