Sherlock Holmes has a sonorous name, but the last video game adventures of the world-famous detective were not received quite as enthusiastically by the fans. Whether the coming Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One changes, that will have to be seen.
The omens: a further rejuvenated Sherlock. Because “Chapter One” depicts the history of the master detective outside of London. “Chapter One” suggests publication in episodes, but that shouldn’t be the case. It is a full game. Completely? Sherlock’s loyal friend Watson should not be there. Instead, “another John Watson”.
Sherlock on the verge of growing up
Sherlock himself is described as a carefree young detective, on the verge of adulthood. He still has to earn his reputation, his character traits are dominated by a “youthful arrogance and naivete”. At least a fresh approach.
At the Epic Games Store Showcase this week, Frogwares surprisingly showed the first gameplay for the new adventure. A full unveiling is scheduled for March. And because it’s a teaser, there isn’t that much to see yet. But at least there is a first look at some gameplay scenes.
Although it was presented at the Epic Games Store Showcase, Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One is also being released for GOG and Steam. A release for PlayStation and Xbox consoles is also planned.
