Ubisoft has announced that CSI: Hard Evidence will be released for PC in spring 2007. As with previous games in the series, Hard Evidence will be based on the characters and storylines from the hit US TV show. This means that you'll get to join Gil Grissom, Catherine and the rest of the CSI Las Vegas team.

In development at Telltale Games, the game will require you to use the techniques and equipment featured in the TV show - usually accompanied by some dramatic music.

"CSI: Hard Evidence is a whole new game that's all about the evidence and even more like the show, giving fans the experience of being part of the CSI Vegas team," said Jay Cohen, vice president of publishing at Ubisoft. "We are continuing the CSI: Vegas experience by providing multiple methods of evidence recovery, crime reconstructions, and all-new high-tech forensic gadgets so fans can feel like real crime scene investigators."

While not everyone's cup of tea, the CSI franchise is big business for Ubisoft. 2.4 million units of the video game series have been sold since the first CSI title was released in March 2003. CSI fans can expect the game in spring 2007.
