Sherlock Holmes Chapter One reveals new trailers covering the troubled begins of a genius. Below are two press releases combined into one post.
12 June, 2021 – Kyiv, Ukraine + Dublin, Ireland | To kick off their E3 announcements, Frogwares has released a gripping CGI trailer that takes you into the storm that is Sherlock’s investigative mind. A slew of new screenshots has also been released.
We also get a glimpse into the impending fate of the young sleuth. Sherlock Holmes Chapter One will delve into the story of how a young Sherlock could eventually become the troubled and broken genius that we all know. His first ever proper investigation into the mysterious death of his mother on the island of Cordona is only the start down this inevitable path.
More Sherlock Holmes Chapter One info is set to drop on June 17th with additional gameplay and developer info.
For those wanting to see how the game looks now, various gameplay videos have already been released along with a sleuth of first hands-on previews.
17 June, 2021 – Kyiv, Ukraine + Dublin, Ireland | To wrap up their E3 announcements, Frogwares has released a detailed video showing new gameplay, a look at the various city districts, and how the disguise mechanic plays out in Sherlock Holmes Chapter One.
Getting information out of suspects is a priority for Sherlock. But on the island of Cordona not everyone is so welcoming to outsiders. So hopefully a change of threads will get those tongues wagging.
Similar to Frogwares’ previous investigation themed titles, the game will however not simply tell you what disguise to find and use on characters. It’s up to players to logically conclude what disguise could work based on observation, additional clues and sound reasoning. Similarly, a certain disguise can have the opposite effect and cause a character to be even more tight lipped.
Sherlock Holmes Chapter One will release sometime in 2021 on PC (Steam, Epic, GOG), PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
