Murder Mystery Machine's latest update introduces a third episode, 'The Fire of Thine Eyes', to the Apple Arcade game
Investigate a new series of interconnected crimes
Murder Mystery Machine was among the original batch of games that launched with Apple Arcade. It followed the journey of two detectives as they looked into a murder that had far more going on than they initially expected. It's an episodic game and the third instalment has now been added.
It's called 'The Fire of Thine Eyes' and sees detectives Cassandra Clarke and her partner Nathaniel Houston investigating a murder after an unknown victim was found dead in a parking lot. Their only lead is a jazz club where everything is not as it seems. You can check out the trailer for the new chapter in the story below.
Episode 3 will give players new locations to explore and puzzles to solve as they delve deeper into the latest mystery. A few tweaks have also been made to the gameplay, UI and controls to improve the experience. They've also added a new tutorial.
If you've played the first two episodes of Murder Mystery Machine but can't remember what happened, which is fair enough, the game did release back in September. Fear not though, Blazing Griffin has released a trailer that acts as a recap for the first two instalments, which you can see below. Maybe don't watch it if you've not played the game and wish to avoid spoilers though.
Discussing their episodic release schedule, Justin Alae-Carew, Co-Head of Games at Blazing Griffin said: “We’ve had a great response to our episodic approach, something we feel is perfect for the Apple Arcade platform. Our aim has been to recreate the structure of procedural police dramas on TV and through Apple Arcade we’re able to provide regular episodic drops without needing to charge for each individual episode.”
He added: “Looking ahead, we’ve got a whole season of content ahead of us, and we’re hoping players will enjoy what’s to come as our story unfolds.”
Murder Mystery Machine is available now on Apple Arcade, a subscription service that costs $4.99 per month. For more details on other games available on Apple Arcade, check out our dedicated hub page.Enjoy a bit of point and click fun? Here are 25 of the best games of that ilk available for mobile
