E3 has already brought us many great things, but one trailer that’s stood out to us so far is for Frogwares’ Sherlock Holmes Chapter One.
Developer Frogwares has made a name for itself in bringing 3D adventure games filled with puzzles, intrigue and a fair bit of darkness to life. Most recently, it brought us The Sinking City, an excellent take on Lovecraftian horror. It’s also responsible for a number of previous Sherlock Holmes games, but Sherlock Holmes Chapter One, an origin story for the famous detective, looks to be the best yet.
The latest trailer, which you can watch below delves a little into the story of the game and introduces to the mind of Holmes as he picks up his first ever investigation. Unfortunately it’s rather close to home; he’s investigating the death of his mother. Taking place on the island of Cordona, it looks to make the perfect idyllic backdrop for our adventures.
We’ve no release date for Sherlock Holmes Chapter One just yet, but we’ll be finding out more – with a look at gameplay and information from the developers – on 17th June. It’s set to release before the end of the year and will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
