Frogwares has launched the first gameplay teaser of its upcoming open-world action-adventure game Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One in which you play the legendary fictional sleuth himself. The game features a 21-years-old Sherlock Holmes who investigates the death of his mother Violet Holmes. The teaser gives a glimpse of what all you can do in the boots of the British detective. Sherlock is seen eavesdropping, rushing through the streets and carefully observing and noting down (mentally) the various objects at a crime scene. The Mediterranean island town, where the game is set, is described as being full of thieves. Sherlock also introduces himself in the teaser. Take a look.
The game is the successor to Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter. It features both third-person and first-person play. As the young Sherlock, your arsenal includes “deception, violence and deduction.” Both brains and brawn will come in handy during the investigations so expect an action-filled detective work.
The game also features Jon, who is Sherlock’s best friend. He is not John H. Watson, by the way, but a new character in this Sherlock universe. The mind of Conan Doyle’s Sherlock rebelled against stagnation and from the looks of the teaser, there is going to be plenty of mystery and brainwork waiting for the Sherlock in you. Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One will arrive sometime this year on PC, Xbox One, PS4 and the next-generation consoles.
