The X-Files: Deep State Gameplay
The gameplay of The X-Files: Deep State is relatively easy. It starts immediately with a case and you enter the game investigating a crime scene as an FBI agent. In the crime scene, you must discover “clues” that can help you solve the mystery. There is a list of things you have to collect from the crime scene on the bottom of the screen. You can press and hold each item on the list so you know what it looks like. You can also use several “hints” to help you find these clues.
As the investigation goes on, you get to interview witnesses and suspects connected to the case. You also get to review the evidence and talk about it with your partner, Detective Garret Dale. This helps shape what kind of detective you will become in the game. You can either do things “by the book” or choose to “believe”. There are elements of the case that can go either way, so it depends on how your character chooses to move forward with each case and with each investigation.
