Airtight Games' ghostly-infused detective title Murdered: Soul Suspect is only days away from being unleashed upon this fleshy Earth, and with it the chance to discover just who shot the now ghostly detective Ronan O'Connor. Was it Miss Scarlet with the lead pipe in the study?

Our very own ghost busting man Stephen Farrelly took on the job of reviewing Murdered: Soul Suspect, walking away somewhat disappointed at the approach that Airtight Games took with this rather unique setting:
I gave it a huge chance and pushed through the bitterness of everything listed above, but it was at that point I’d detected that Airtight Games had sprung a leak in its hull, and it’s a real shame. The concept and setting here were ripe for out-of-left-field explosiveness, but due to a lack of direction and capitalisation, and likely a small budget, all we’re left with is a lifeless game that fails to live up to its potential.
Check out the full review of Murdered: Soul Suspect to read up on Steve's complete thoughts.

Since Ghost is his favourite movie, and he cries over the loss of the late, great Patrick Swayze every night, we decided to send Nathan Lawrence in to check out Murdered: Soul Suspect from Airtight Games, assuming it was on the same ethereal, romantic plane.

Imagine our surprise when he not only walked out exorcised of his Ghost affection demon, but also more than intrigued by what is more akin, allegedly, to Die Hard. One thing's for sure, in a videogaming world where varying types of warfare and shooting reign supreme, it's tantalising to see a new IP like this come out of left-field.

Square Enix has today revealed that their new adventure thriller from Quantum Conundrum developer Airtight Games, Murdered: Soul Suspect, will be hitting Australian shelves on June 6th.
MURDERED: SOUL SUSPECT sees players take the role of Ronan O’Connor, a detective with a checkered past, whose life is brought to an untimely end by a brutal and relentless killer. Unable to move on and stuck in the limbo world of Dusk, he won’t find peace until he can bring his killer to justice from the afterlife.

Using his new-found supernatural abilities, Ronan is free to explore the town of Salem, Massachusetts, from his shadowy afterlife. Unable to communicate with the detectives on his case, Ronan must read the minds of the living, influencing their thoughts and actions. As part of his investigation, he must interrogate the ghosts of Salem’s past citizens to piece together the puzzle, while battling demonic spirits to save his soul and uncover the shocking truth about who is responsible for his death.
Square Enix has yet to unveil any information on what we can expect in the form of pre-order material outside of America, but for those fortunate to be in America you'll be getting an interactive digital strategy map. The map, accessible via computer or tablet, will help players unearth all of Salem’s secrets, including the location of hundreds of in-game items including quest givers, collectibles, and Easter Eggs.

Murdered: Soul Suspect is set to hit PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on the June 6th date. Check out the latest trailer below, showing off the PlayStation 4 in action.

In the demo walkthrough below, recorded by PlayStation staff from the E3 2013 show floor, Airtight Games' Design Prodcuer Eric Studer narrates and describes 15 minutes of gameplay footage, explaining the advantages and limitations of using your ghosty detective powers to attempt to solve you're own violent murder.

Murdered: Soul Suspect is due in 2014 on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

Square Enix has unveiled a new trailer for their upcoming ghostly action-adventure game Murdered: Soul Suspect, revealing just how Massachusetts detective Ronan O’Connor goes about discovering who exactly murdered him and how he plans to take down his killer from beyond the grave.

Using his ghostly abilities, Ronan will be able to "communicate" with the living by reading their minds and influencing their thoughts and actions to help push along his case. You'll also be able to interrogate the ghosts of Salem’s past citizens to piece together the puzzle, while battling demonic spirits to save Ronan's soul and uncover the shocking truth about who is responsible for his death.

Murdered: Soul Suspect is expected in early 2014 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. No developer has officially been revealed for the game, though Internet sleuth, Superannuation, proclaimed duties were being handled by Airtight Games (Dark Void, Quantum Conundrum), and has this resume to help back up his claim. Square Enix has assured us that more on the new title will be revealed at E3 2013, however, you can check out the trailer below in the meantime.
