Sherlock Holmes Chapter One in development

New detective game will offer a re-imagining of the character

Posted on

Frogwares, the team behind the Sherlock Holmes adventures and The Sinking City, have announced that Sherlock Holmes Chapter One is in development.

Sherlock Holmes Chapter One is a third-person, open-world story-driven detective thriller and acts as a prequel in the world-renowned detective’s personal story. A creative re-imagining of what events could have led to Sherlock becoming the iconic sleuth many know today.

The game will follow Sherlock’s “first big case” as a young 21 year old adult. While still set in the 19th century, the game will take place in isolated Mediterranean inspired island where class divides and corruption are the foundations of this society.

On top of a fresh story and setting, the game is built around a “Global Investigation System”. Heavily updated from the approach taken in The Sinking City, this new system is intended to give players much more freedom in solving cases in a way that feels like genuine detective work.

Sherlock Holmes Chapter One also features a combat system and utilizes Sherlock’s legendary observation skills rather than brute force combat.

Sherlock Holmes Chapter One will be developed and self-published entirely by Frogwares in Unreal Engine 4. The game is currently set to release sometime in 2021 and will be available on PC, PS4, Xbox One and next-gen consoles.
