D4 is an upcoming episodic murder mystery game being developed by Access Games (under the direction of acclaimed game director Hidetaka Suehiro, who is better known by the nickname Swery65) and set to be published by Microsoft Studios exclusively for the Xbox One.

Described as a spiritual successor to the Ultima series, it is set to be the first of five anticipated episodes, each of which will expand on the story and introduce new content. Players will adventure in an interactive world where their choices have consequences, ethical paradoxes give them pause, and they play a vital part in weaving their own story into the immersive world and lore surrounding them. Play options will include solo, friends only, or open multiplayer via the Selective Multiplayer system.
