GameHouse has posted new details and a teaser video for the upcoming third game in the Mortimer Beckett series: Mortimer Beckett and the Lost King. There’s still no word on a launch date, but we can tell you that like Big Fish Games’ Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove, which launched last month, Lost King will be sold in two versions: a Premium Edition for $19.99 (or a FunPass membership) and a lower-priced standard version which will be available at a later date.
According to GameHouse, the special Premium Edition will include:
- Early access to the game before the standard edition launches.
- Exclusive strategy guide with level-by-level hints and tips.
- A bonus game called Mortimer Beckett and the Lost King Jigsaw Puzzle.
The standard version, which will lack the strategy guide and bonus game, will be available "at a later date" for purchase with either a FunTicket or GamePass credit. The game is so far only available for Windows XP/2000/Vista/7. No word yet on a Mac version.
