Agatha Christie's 'Murder On The Orient Express' Arrives On Xbox In Fall 2023 2

Microids has today announced a brand-new Agatha Christie game for Xbox in the form of Murder On The Orient Express, which is a "modernised and revisited version" of Christie's classic tale of the same name.

Interestingly, the developer says this 2023 version of the story will feature brand-new elements including a new character called Joanna Locke, and you'll be able to "lead your investigation in a whole new light".

"On board the Orient Express, the legendary detective Hercule Poirot tries to solve the murder that has taken place on the prestigious train while surrounded by a cast of intriguing characters with their own secrets and motives. Solving the mystery won’t be easy and through numerous twists and turns, players will have to use their little grey cells as well as detective skills to unravel the truth and bring it to light."

There's no trailer for this one yet, nor is there a release date (it's just "Fall 2023"), but you'll find an extensive description on the official Microids website, along with a couple of screenshots which you can also see below.

"As you play, you will take on the roles of Poirot and Joanna, solve puzzles and make deductions to uncover the truth behind the murder. In a 3rd person view, you will inspect the sets and talk to all the protagonists, searching for clues and confronting the suspects.

Get ready for major plot twists that will keep you hooked until the very end. Murder On the Express is renowned for having one of the best plot twists in literary history, and this game is no exception. But this time, set in 2023, you will lead your investigation in a whole new light."
