Murdered: Soul Suspect is due out for next gen and current generation consoles as well as the PC in June but today Examiner is able to bring you some more exclusive details about the game. In Soul Suspect, you play as Ronan O’Connor, a murdered private detective in Salem, Massachusetts who must now somehow find his killer.
That kind of a game can offer some really interesting visuals, especially when talking about a storyline that centers around a ghost moving about town. Airtight Games and Square Enix have indeed managed to put together some really pretty visuals, if this set of screenshots is any indication. Dennis Price, the art director at Airtight Games talked to Examiner about the increased power the Xbox One and PS4 were able to offer in regards to making Murdered: Soul Suspect.
“The next gen hardware really elevates the ceiling on how we can push the visuals,” Price said, “We are able to provide a quality much like a high end PC on the next gen consoles. Technology-wise we are able to crank the dial up to 11 on things like antialiasing and introduce DX11 features like subsurface scattering.”
While most game developers would agree that getting games looking as pretty as possible on every platform they offer is the goal, it simply isn’t doable. Technology limits what a title is going to look like when compared even to next generation consoles such as the PS4 and the Wii U. That in particular, is likely why Soul Suspect isn’t expected to hit Nintendo’s offering. Price agreed, saying that previous generation consoles simply didn’t have the capability of doing what developers were able to accomplish on the Xbox One and the PS4.
Murdered: Soul Suspect is coming to next generation consoles (minus Wii U), the Xbox 360, PS3 and the PC on June 3
