Agatha Christie fans worldwide will be happy to know that the Murder on the Orient Express video game has been slated to release in fall 2023. Gamers will be able to embody the famed detective Hercule Poirot in this brand-new game.
According to reports, the new Murder on the Orient Express game will be set in 2023, as opposed to the 2006 game that was set in the book’s period. Featuring the main plot from the classic novel, the game will include some new storylines, gameplay mechanics, and a new character as well. The developer has stated that players will experience thrill and mystery to a whole new level, with shocking reveals, suspenseful casework, and a gameplay full of action.
Murder on the Orient Express will be released on a wide range of platforms and consoles, including PlayStation 4 & 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X & S, Steam deck, and Nintendo Switch. The game is also playable on PC, downloadable through Epic Games Store and Steam website once it’s launched.
Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express game brings the case to the modern era
In the new Murder on the Orient Express video game, players will tackle one of the famed detective’s most popular cases (remade over and over again in the form of games, TV shows, teleplays, plays, and movies). This is not an easy task as most of the players would be familiar with the case and its resolution, yet the developer seems confident that the inclusion of some fresh elements will make the gameplay experience satisfying.
Apart from Poirot, players will also be able to play as Joanna Locke, a character playable in the game’s flashback sequences that would help players unravel the mystery off the train. Apart from puzzles and adventure elements, the developer feels strongly that the game will succeed in making the players scratch their heads, look for clues, and make deductions based on the tiniest hints while navigating the celebrated mystery in its new form.
