This 1min50 long video takes us to London, back in 1888 to the faithfully recreated Whitechapel district, exactly as the payers will discover it as this video is only composed of ingame sequences.
Dark streets, oppressive atmosphere, constant poverty, alcoholics, beggars and prostitutes, it’s a frightening immersion that we offer you on video in this district sadly known for having been the hunting ground for one of the most atrocious serial killers in History: Jack the Ripper.
Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper allows you to play as the greatest detective of all in the London of 1888. A series of particularly horrible murders creates a real psychosis throughout the country. Atrociously mutilated prostitutes' bodies are found by the police without them being able to find a serious lead. Sherlock Holmes starts looking for clues in the dark and sinister alleys of Whitechapel in order to follow the macabre trail of the one the press now calls Jack the Ripper. During an adventure full of twists, Sherlock Holmes will try to bring out the true identity and the motives of the one who hides behind this scary alias.
The Sherlock Holmes series is known as one of the best franchises in adventure games and is very popular with around 1.5 million copies sold worldwide. Now, Sherlock Holmes is back with a game that will give a new dimension to the series. Indeed, Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper will offer players two different views that are accessible at any time: a third person view in the purest style used in point & click adventure games, as well as a first person view. The player will be free to play in one or the other modes or even combine them for greater immersion into this terrifying adventure. Another novelty: the player will also find an original crime scene reconstitution system that will allow him to test his theories during his progress in the investigation to follow the bloody trail of the terrifying serial killer.
Sherlock Holmes v Jack the Ripper will be released for DVD ROM PC in May of 2009.
