Square Enix have announced a new title for current-gen systems – Murdered: Soul Suspect.

The action game sees players attempting to solve their own murder case, playing as supernatural character Ronan from beyond the grave. As well as the game premise being intriguing, so is the development situation, with Square deciding to keep the studio working on Soul Suspect under wraps.

Check out the blurb from the publisher and the first trailer below:

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.”
