Konami has unveiled a new werewolf-style game called Crimesight, set in futuristic London. Introduced on PC, you can now sign up for closed beta testing from tomorrow.
The crime scene took place in London in 2075, and AI predictions about when and where crimes would occur almost eradicated real crimes. A special AI called “Sherlock” was developed to avoid a future in which the world collapses, but AI rivals called “Moriarty” unleash all that effort.
In this game, players are divided into teams without revealing their identities. Moriarty players must meet certain conditions to avoid killing the target NPC. Sherlock players, on the other hand, need to guess not only the criminal but also the victim of the crime. Participate in multiplayer competitive social deduction games.
There is no release date yet, but the sign-up for the closed beta of Crimesight is available on the official website and will be open until July 10. The closed beta version itself runs from June 25th to July 11th and is steam.
Crimesight joins the growing popularity of social deduction games, including variations of Among Us, SpyParty, and the classic Werewolf. Another variation, Werewolves Within, has just released its own movie.
