Frogware’s Announce Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One for PC, Current and Next Gen Concoles
We’re big fans of the Frogware’s Sherlock Holmes games here at Finger Guns. Devils Daughter and Crimes & Punishments were both quality games that really leaned into the experience of being the world’s greatest detective (no, not Batman). We’re pretty pumped about this news then – Frogwares has announced Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG). It will launch in 2021.
In this next game, you’ll play as “a cavalier young Sherlock” in an open world solve-’em-up where you’ll “never know where your next clue will come from”. It’s a refreshing take on Sherlock – Outside of London for once, set on a Mediterranean that’s rife with political corruption and crime, “It’s up to you to decide whether uncovering the truth will do more harm than good—and how that will shape the man you’ll become.” Sold.
As Sherlock, your legacy is written by the decisions you make in this open-world detective adventure. Deception, violence, and deduction are just a few resources in your arsenal—your mysterious companion and sounding board, Jon, is another. Whether you choose brute force to solve problems or stay one step ahead of your enemies by using your wits to spot vulnerabilities, you decide what each situation demands as you hone your investigative skills. It’s time to confront your past so you can become the legend you’re destined to be.
