We don't know about you, but we never thought of Sherlock Holmes as a ruthless killer. The famous figure has always struck as the silent but deadly type, using words to get his way instead of guns. Apparently not, however, if this new gameplay trailer for Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One is anything to go by. The detective shoots more enemies than he does uncover clues, all within an open world we'll be able to fully explore at some point later this year.

As well as raw gameplay, two and a half minutes of footage showcases cutscenes and clue solving in action. We're just surprised by the sheer amount of combat the trailer highlights. There was some of it in Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter, but this follow-up seems to be taking the feature to the next level. Exciting stuff? Potentially. We just hope the open world mechanic is done right this time around.
