How to Access a Map in Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened

Are you wondering if Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened has a map, and how you can access it? Here’s what you need to know.

In any game, accessing a map is a crucial aspect of gameplay as it helps you navigate the game world and keep track of your discoveries. In games like Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened, a map can be even more important as it’s your responsibility to figure out where to go. Thankfully, there is a map, but it might not be quite as useful as you are hoping.

To access the map in Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened, press the options button on your controller to open the game’s menu, then press R1 to navigate to the ‘compass’ icon.

It’s important to note that the map in Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened only shows locations you’ve already discovered. This means that you’ll have to explore the game world yourself to uncover new locations and objectives. Fortunately, the areas in the game are relatively small, making it easy to navigate and find your next destination.

As you wander through the game, be sure to pay attention to your surroundings and take note of any landmarks or points of interest. This will help you build a mental map of the area and make it easier to locate specific locations later on. There’s no way to set a waypoint or to display a minimap.

You can fast travel to some of the locations you uncover, making it slightly easier to get around. To fast travel, hold down the X button (or A on an Xbox controller) on the location you want to visit on the map. You can’t fast travel if you’re inside of a building: you’ll need to be outside.

In summary, accessing the map in Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened is a straightforward process that involves pressing the options button and navigating to the compass icon using the L1/R1 buttons. While the map only displays previously discovered locations, the game’s compact areas make exploration and discovery an enjoyable and manageable task.
