Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One devs reveal how ambitious the studio is
Put on your detective hat when Sherlock Holmes returns under the wing of Frogwares in 2021 with Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One presenting the young Holmes with difficult tasks. In a new dev video, the developers talk about their ambitions.
A portrayal of master detective Sherlock Holmes shouldn't be limited to the interpretations of Robert Downey Jr, Benedict Cumberbatch or the airing of Enola Holmes on Netflix. Quite a few books have brought Holmes to life, as well as older movies and audio dramas. Frogwares is following suit with its "own" portrayal of Holmes, letting the makers of the upcoming PC game Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One have their say in a developer video. They seem pretty ambitious when it comes to bringing Sherlock Holmes to life for a game.
Facts on the table, because detectives like facts: Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One invites you to visit an open game world on a Mediterranean island. With five main quests, more than 30 side quests, 40 hours of gameplay, subtle interactions in different groups, a new combat system, the freedom to spot the guilty among many suspects and game endings that adapt to your choices and inclinations.
With the first chapter, Frogwares returns to the origins of the detective's career. After the death of his mother, Holmes revisits his hometown. However, the seemingly peaceful surroundings hide dark secrets, and he must use his deductive skills to uncover the truth.
Frogware's adventures with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's iconic character will arrive later this year with the release of Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One.
