Sherlock Holmes The Awakened gameplay trailer shows exploration and investigation
A debut gameplay trailer has been released for Frogware’s remake of Sherlock Holmes The Awakened.
In the gameplay below we see a young Sherlock on his first case alongside his new sidekick, John Watson. Sherlock is shown piecing together key moments, investigating scenes, solving puzzles, and more.
The Awakened mixes Sherlock Holmes and H.P. Lovecraft and was originally released in 2006. While investigating a missing person case, Sherlock and Watson find themselves dealing with a nefarious cult that worships the eldritch god Cthulhu.
As previously announced, the remake features all-new graphics built in Unreal Engine 4, new animations, cutscene overhauls, new mechanics, and a rewritten story designed to fit the younger Sherlock narrative from Chapter One.
Sherlock Holmes The Awakened is scheduled to release in either February or March 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
