Frogwares recently debuted a short gameplay trailer for its upcoming game, Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One, during the Epic Games Store Spring Showcase.
The trailer shows off some of the game’s environments running on Unreal Engine 4, as well as some of the ways you’ll be able to solve mysteries with your powerful skills of deduction. It’s worth noting that this trailer is just a small teaser – a more robust gameplay trailer with additional details is set to launch next month, hopefully containing a rough release date.
Unlike previous games from Frogwares, Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One is the franchise’s first foray into the open-world genre, and focuses on a much younger Sherlock Holmes than you might be acquainted with. His quest to solve the mystery surrounding his mother’s death brings Sherlock to an island full of crime and deception. Many of the islands’ inhabitants will look to Sherlock for help, but it will be up to you whether you decide to oblige them or not.
A recent Q & A video by Frogwares revealed that Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One will have five main cases and over 30 side cases for you to complete. To do so, you’ll need to utilize Sherlock’s powers of deduction to pinpoint enemy weak points or take them down using the environment. The use of disguises will let you sneak into otherwise restricted areas and can even make Sherlock appear older, should the need for such a situation arise.
Just like in the previous game, the outcome of the story will entirely depend on your skills as a detective. You’ll be able to accuse the wrong person during side cases and even main cases, altering your ending based on your choices. To accuse the right person, you’ll need to use all of Sherlock’s skills to build a convincing case within your mind palace. However, there are two sides to every story, and sometimes you’ll need to decide whether revealing the truth is more harmful than leaving people in blissful ignorance.
Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One doesn’t yet have a release date, but is expected to release at some point in 2021. The game will be available on PC (Steam, Epic, GOG), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
