Sherlock Holmes Chapter One a prequel to the Frogwares series

Sherlock Holmes Chapter One was recently announced by developer Frogwares Interactive, a prequel to its popular investigative series.

“This time around we wanted to be more creative with the story we told and found an idea that hasn’t really been touched on by other adaptations – Sherlock’s ‘first big case’ as a young 21 year old adult,” said Antonina Melnykova, Lead Narrative Designer.

“He is Sherlock at his core, but at this point he’s more raw talent than refined genius. Reckless and impatient and a tad brazen, but unknowingly already on the path to greatness.”

“We looked closely at the fan and press feedback we got from The Sinking City and previous Sherlock games,” added Yaroslav Martyniuk, Lead Feature Designer. “This feedback defines the features in Chapter One: investigation, story, combat, exploration. For example, the combat system in Chapter One has been built completely from scratch, and many other mechanics are undergoing changes [and] improvements to make the game pace better overall.”

Sherlock Holmes Chapter One heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4 and PS5 in 2021.
