Activision has released a Downton Abbey game

The publisher of Call of Duty and Destiny has released a brand new game… based on ITV period drama Downton Abbey.

In Mysteries of the Manor, you’ll step into the role of a newly hired staff member who was brought in to investigate a mysterious burglary,” the company said. An intruder has ransacked the abbey, putting the Crawley’s family fortune in jeopardy. You’ll need to search each room and assemble the evidence if you want to get to the bottom of this whodunit.

Returning items to their rightful owners is a good way to earn the trust of the estate’s residents, and it will lay foundation for the abbey’s eventual restoration. But choose your friends wisely. In a place where everyone has something to hide, discretion is always important.

The free-to-play iOS, Android and Kindle Fire title will get monthly content updates and a special Christmas content pack.

The sixth and final series of Downton Abbey will be broadcast later this year.

Here’s a trailer:
